Long time Olympia attorneys, Frank Morris and Jeanne Sockle, have been recognized by Newsweek Magazine as a ‘Premier Law Firm 2017′ and have been featured in the Legal Insights section of their publication in an article titled ‘How to get Great Legal Representation in 2017′

[OLYMPIA, WA] — [March 9, 2017] – Attorneys Frank Morris and Jeanne Sockle announced today that they have been included in an elite list of law firms recognized by Newsweek Magazine as “Premier Law Firms 2017”.

This announcement comes after Newsweek promoted the honor in an article titled “How to Get Great Legal Representation in 2017”. This list of Premier Law Firms is annually curated, vetted, and presented by the experienced legal journalists at Newsweek Magazine, an international print and digital publication that has been providing high-quality journalism to domestic and foreign readers around the globe for over 80 years.

Partners at Morris – Sockle, PLLC and co-founders of Divorce Lawyers for Men, Frank Morris and Jeanne Sockle have excelled in the practice of law for over 35 years, consistently demonstrating an unmistakable prowess in complex litigation and high-asset divorce cases by leveraging their experience and creativity to achieve the best possible results for their clients.

According to the American Bar Association, there are 1,300,705 lawyers in the United States. Of those 1.3+ million, only 13 law firms met the rigorous requirements of Newsweek’s legal journalists to make the list of “Premier Law Firms 2017”.

The inclusion of Morris and Sockle becomes even more impressive when you consider that they are the only “Premier Law Firm” that specializes in family law and divorce.

In fact, they are 1 of only 3 “Premier Law Firms” located on the west coast, with the other 2 practicing in California.

This prestigious recognition is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its honorees, Frank Morris and Jeanne Sockle.
