Katherine M. Morris is an experienced “hands on” litigator, equally adept on both sides of the aisle representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Kathi began her practice of law in the areas of personal injury and class action litigation, and now also practices in the areas of Commercial Litigation, Condominium Law, Construction and Real Estate issues.

Practice Highlights

Kathi believes ongoing, open communication with her clients is essential, as many times litigation may be avoided if business disputes can be explored at an early stage and a reasonable settlement negotiated. When litigation becomes a reality, Kathi's clients trust her comprehensive understanding of their position, aggressive litigation strategy and experience in the courtroom to guide them from discovery to trial to post trial representation.

Kathi brings an extensive business background that assists her in counseling and advising her clients. Her first-hand knowledge and understanding of the issues her business clients face brings a perspective that few attorneys can offer.

Prior to attending law school, she was highly successful in the casino industry, serving as a Casino Host/Credit Executive at the Sands Hotel and Casino and as an Executive Casino Host at the Claridge Hotel and Casino. She was part of the team that developed the first gaming rewards card in the Atlantic City industry. While completing her undergraduate studies, Kathi was a department manager at Macy's, responsible for retail departments that grossed more than $3.25 million annually.
