PASSION IS RELENTLESS DETERMINATION TO ACHIEVE WHATEVER IS MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU...
Born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, Shari´ Morris developed a passion for the law at the very tender age of nine. Her passion and interest stemmed from her personal experience of going through the aftermath of her parents’ divorce and a difficult child custody and support battle. The experience fueled her desire to not only educate but also to counsel and guide her clients through the stress of difficult matters with the utmost of ease. Throughout the years of practice, Shari´ has represented clients with difficult divorces, child support matters as well as heavily contested child custody disputes; all of which have resulted in the most favorable outcome for her clients as well as ensuring the child’s interest were considerably safeguarded.
Shari’s legal career has also led her to service clients in the areas of personal injury. The needs of the injured required the same care, attention to detail, and patience as the family law clients. Obtaining hundreds of satisfactory settlements for her injury clients and seeing their beaming smiles have proved to be extremely rewarding. Shari´ believes the most rewarding part of being a lawyer is advocating, negotiating and securing the desired outcome for her clients. Her favorite part: the courtroom, of course; however, writing comes in as a very close second. In her spare time, Shari´ enjoys reading, writing fiction, shopping and spending time with her husband. She is a member of the Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys, the Gate City Bar Association, and the Continental Societies, Inc., a civic organization that serves the art, economic, educational, health and recreation needs of underprivileged youth in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
