NEIL W. MORRISON: I handle all federal criminal cases and all state criminal cases. Typically in federal court, I handle gun cases and drug cases, whether it’s possession, sale, or distribution. I also handle fraud, whether it’s mortgage fraud or the traditional white collar crime. In state court, I handle everything from a speeding ticket to a driving while impaired charge to a felony drug case.

I think a major advantage that I provide my clients is my ability to take the complex and to make it simple. It’s a one-on-one interaction between myself and the client who has been charged. And they have serious concerns about what are their rights within the system. And I can take those concerns. And I can give them answers in an understandable way so that they can go about their day. And they can rest assured that when they’ve hired me, they’ve hired the best they can to protect them within the court system. When you come to the Law Office of Neil W. Morrison, you get Neil W. Morrison. And that’s it. I’m always here for you 24/7 if need be. So you can rest assured that when you call me, you’re going to get me. You’re not going to get a voicemail or somebody who might pass the message on and might not. And from day one, I’m the one who can explain things to you. And you can always count on me and talk to me.

NEIL W. MORRISON: When I was in law school at Campbell University in North Carolina, I clerked at the federal public defender’s office. So I got a hands-on approach in how the federal government works when it’s prosecuting a case.

And I got a hands-on approach in how to defend that case, whether you’re going to accept a plea agreement or whether you’re going to go to trial. I need my client involved from the very start. We need to talk about how did you get involved in this. Who were the other major players? What are the facts? And what’s the story? And I can take all of that. And I can compare it to the evidence to determine whether we need to go to trial or whether we need to find a way to lessen the severity of any possible or potential sentence you may face. Federal cases are more complex than state cases. Even down to sentencing and trying to understand how the federal government is going to sentence you under what’s called the United States Sentencing Guidelines, you need an attorney who understands how to compute sentences under the guidelines so that you understand from the start how much time you are potentially facing if found guilty for this charge. And you need an attorney who is not going to shudder at the federal government. You need an attorney who embraces the challenge. And I’m that attorney.
