The Morrison Law Group announced its formation on April 21, 2006. The Firm is headed by its principal, Edward F. Morrison, Jr., 56 years old, a veteran trial lawyer and maintains its offices in Los Angeles and Riverside Counties.
The Firm's principal, Edward F. Morrison, Jr., in a statement issued January 31, 2019 said:
"In the nearly 13 years that the Firm has been providing legal services, the Firm has completed four jury trials, two court trials and has participated in three binding arbitrations (two before the American Arbitration Association and one before JAMS). The Firm was also successful in obtaining an Order and Alternative Writ from the Court of Appeal where the trial court was directed to grant a motion for summary judgment based on the statute of limitations. Also, in the past year, the Firm was successful in obtaining dismissals based on Demurrers in two complicated cases in the Los Angeles Superior Court (one of which was affirmed in an unpublished opinion). The Firm has also collected and/or assisted in obtaining settlements totaling over $5,000,000 in a variety of construction, contract and business litigation matters, has been named to the approved attorney panels of a number of major insurers and has taken on more than 850 assignments since its founding in April 2006. The Firm has also published 151 editions of The Morrison Law Journal and is ready to go to press with its 152nd edition which discusses the Court of Appeal decision
in Berkeley Cement, Inc. v. Regents of the University of California (2019) 30 Cal.App.5th 1133 where the Court ruled that mediation costs could be recovered by a prevailing party in a large scale construction dispute as allowable costs even though the mediation was private, voluntary and not court ordered. I am excited about the continued progress and growth in the law firm's practice.”
