Amazing people! We used them for our recent home purchase. Such an accessible and friendly team. We had some very unpleasant happenings with the sellers of our home, and the team at morra caruso were fantastic. They made a horrible situation so much better. They went out of their way and we really appreciated them being there for us. Would highly recommend them.

We met with a lawyer at Morra Caruso Law Firm to create our wills. Everyone we met in the office was friendly and professional. Our lawyer took the time to thoroughly explain the process involved in making a will and he was very good about listening to our concerns and answering all of our questions

We purchased a business and the land in 2018 and we had an excellent lawyer who was very thorough with all the documents and very precise in emails. In the middle of the transaction (our transaction was many months), our lawyer moved away and we were transferred to the owner. The staff that helped us in the transaction was Julie and Vira and they were absolutely amazing workers and went the extra mile to make everything correct....definitely 'dotted the i's' and 'crossed the t's'. The after service is amazing as well. They truly look after you with your transaction and you don't feel like a 'number'. Everyone at Morra Caruso Law is very friendly and professional! I would highly recommend anyone to them, whether for business or personal....they are amazing at what they do.

My brother and I needed a lawyer to help us deal with our mother's estate and he suggested we try Morra Caruso Law. And we are both glad we did. Martin Bufton walked us through the process and made recommendations based on his extensive experience. We met the whole team that day and were impressed with their knowledge and professionalism and all delivered with a smile. Julie Patterson has been very patient with my many questions and all in all the team has eased some our worries at a difficult time. I will also be coming back to have my own will drafted and have already recommended this firm to friends. Many thanks to the Morra Caruso team.

We are new clients of Morra Caruso. My wife and I came to them to prepare our wills. Brian was our lawyer. Financially it was fairly simple, but because we were both previously married with children therefrom, some careful planning and thought was required. After an initial review of our situation, Brian provided us with a cost estimate and he stayed true to his word. He was very good at explaining various issues and considerations. I still had questions which he answered patiently and in simple laymen's terms. Brian is very professional, yet friendly and approachable. We were so impressed with the service (including the staff!) that we had them update my mother-in-law's will and her real estate closing. Morra Caruso will be consulted for all our legal issues and I would recommend them to anyone needing legal advice.

My experience with this law firm has been very positive. My husband and I had are wills done by this firm and they were very accommodating with our requests as well as our time line. Due to our recent arrival of our son they have been very helpful and patient in our preferences as well as waiting patiently to meet with us again due to our new very busy schedule. We have recommended them now to renew wills and have new wills written for our parents as well as my brother in law has used them. So far everyone we know who has used them has been very pleased with their professional work. I would and will continue to recommend this local legal team!
