About the Team

Timothy C. Morris, PA

My name is Timothy “Tim” Morris. I am a trial attorney and I have been practicing law for over 20 years, primarily in Harnett County. If you are reading this you likely have a reason so I’ll get to the point. I handle the following types of cases and matters:
     • speeding tickets and other traffic matters
     • Driving While Impaired Cases and other serious criminal offenses
     • Serious automobile wreck cases, including transfer truck wrecks
     • work related injuries, workers compensation law I am the only Board Certified Specialist in State criminal law in Harnett County.
Early in my career, I was a prosecutor and was able to learn a lot about the law and how things worked in the system. I represent people charged with everything from seat belt tickets to first-degree capital homicide cases. Most persons who get charged with something have a feeling of being disconnected and that affects their decision making.
Most are unfamiliar with how the system works. I strive to give people a feeling of being “connected” so they fully understand what I do for them and why I am doing it. I personally talk with my clients and will answer any questions you may have. My firm is small and you get personal attention from either me or a member of my staff.
