More often than not we find that clients are intimidated or nervous about entering a law office, it has been commonly compared to the dentist. Eek!! There are multiple factors in this, but lets be honest, who wouldn't be apprehensive to meet with a stranger, hand over $$ (because we all know that part happens) and bare their deepest, darkest, heaviest and most sacred issues?! To some this may sound worst than the dentist! It's not easy and we get it. So, we put our heads together and asked the question...how can we help to eliminate the initial "Stranger Danger", and make this feel like a Family. Because you will quickly learn that our clients become family, and to us, our clients are Family.
So here it goes, our first edition will start with the one and only, Aaron Morriss.

WHAT MADE YOU, YOU?
I grew up in Melba, Idaho with 7 brothers and sisters riding dirt bikes, horses and living the true Idaho lifestyle. That is what I attribute most of my character too. It taught me humility, the importance of family, and to work hard for what you want. I put myself through college, and law school (and braces, no I'm not naturally this beautiful). I'm very proud of how far I have come in life regardless of any speed bumps along the way (like bad teeth).
When my grandpa was on his hospital bed right before he died he told me, "Life is hard, you just have to wake up everyday and fight." Ill never forget that, and he was so right. I also advise others to have the mindset that ‘experiences and situations are only temporary', so if you're having a bad day, something bad happens to you, or you make a mistake - learn something from it. Then watch some Archer to make you laugh. :) Life is what you make it, and I try to always be positive and moving forward.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME AN ATTORNEY?
A lot of people ask, did you always know you wanted to be an attorney..? That's an easy answer, No. I wanted to be Superman! .......When that didn't work out I decided to try law school. So far, so good.
FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB?
I have been told I chose the right profession because I talk a lot.
But to be serious, I love helping people. I have dreams of starting a non-profit and plan to one day accomplish that.
LEAST FAVORITE PART?
Talking a lot. It's a love/hate relationship.
on a lighter note...
BIGGEST PET PEEVE?
Definitely those people who don't pull into the intersection at a stop light to turn left!
FAVORITE ANIMAL AND WHY?
Cheetah, they are fast.
FAVORITE FOOD AND BEVERAGE?
Steak, Cheetos because it sounds like cheetah, and Energy Drinks are my weakness!
and before we say goodbye, did you enjoy this interview?
Anytime I can talk about myself is a good time. :) Hope you guys realize now I am not a dentist!
