I will start by saying I am the ultimate pollyanna! I trust in people. I expect outcomes to be good. I look for the best in others. I am the ultimate optimist. Yet I do understand the essential nature of the ingredients to a recipe for good outcomes – focus, hard work, preparation, devotion to the cause and often – plain old good luck! I was born on June 11, 1949 in Framingham, Massachusetts... the 5th of 6 children. Dad was of Italian heritage and was raised a Catholic. Mom was of Irish/English heritage and was raised a Methodist. They were what we call “Kennedy Democrats from Boston.” In October, 1954, we moved from Massachusetts to Florida. I was blessed by having very warm and tender parents. Then I was blessed again as I started First Grade having “Sister Violetta” as my First Grade and then Second Grade teacher – a nun who was truly angelic in many ways and she had a most extraordinary smile. I loved school all the way through to the end of my formal education and I’ve always felt it was due to the wonders of Sister Violetta and my initial experience in First and Second Grade. I went to Sacred Heart Grade School in Lake Worth, Florida. It was a time – (just like times to come in my life) – where I would be involved in everything. “Small Fry Football” and “Large Fry Football” and little league and all the other leagues of baseball. In 6th Grade, at the age of 11, the “music teacher” at Sacred Heart School chose me to be the “soloist” for the school choir and for various church services. Then, over the next few years I sang at weddings, funerals, school events and more – where I would sing with the group and then be brought out front to sing a multitude of solos – i.e., the Lord’s Prayer, Ava Maria, and more. During these years, I had the unique experience of having singing “vocal lessons” for two straight years – a time during which I was a weekly guest on a South Florida Amateur Hour television show called the Laurie Alwyn & Eve Show (on ABC). It was a lot of fun as I sang songs to a different theme each week whether it was Mother’s Day or Father’s Day or Easter Sunday or whatever – but always singing and getting dressed in the theme costume for the occasion. My two favorites were the day I was all dressed up like a cowboy and sang “Don’t Fence Me In” and then on another occasion when they had me sing “The Marine Corps. Hymn.” My oldest brother, George, was in the TV studio with me. He was home on leave. He was a fighter pilot in the Marines. They maneuvered the cameras in such a way so that George was standing at attention saluting and I somehow magically appeared over his heart while singing the Marine Corps. Hymn. It was exceedingly emotional as most of the people in the studio – including the two cameramen – were crying.

I was raised in rural Maine back when it was just an unorganized territory, and my family were the only year-round residents brave or crazy enough to live on Spring Pond Mountain in the winter. We had no electricity and no running water.

We lived in an old farmhouse an elderly couple owned and let us live in for free if we worked the land; and work it we did. We had 4 acres of gardens with every vegetable you can imagine. We had blueberry bushes, blackberry patches, raspberries, strawberries, and an apple orchard. We kept chickens for eggs, goats for milk, horses to plow and harrow the fields, and dogs to protect the gardens and the animals from the deer and coyote. One year we even had a pig—what luck! I loved those dogs. One year, our Samoyed Husky named Able saved my life. I was in the apple orchard with my sister, and we got caught between a mama bear and her cub. The mama bear came out of the woods on one side of the tree and the cub came out on the other side. Mama bear charged at us, and we climbed up an apple tree. Naturally, the bear climbed right up after us. Able was at the bottom of the tree biting as hard as she could at the bear’s legs, until the bear got so mad she chased Able into the woods. We ran home safe and sound. Able came back later that night.

I was one of four girls. My father really wanted sons, but all he got was girls. All the same, he raised us like we were sons. He taught us to never show struggle on your face no matter how heavy the weight of the burden. He taught us to haul hay, split wood, and clean out an outhouse. He even gave me the name he had picked out for the son I was supposed to be: Christian Milton Morris. Having a man’s name helped in my early years of practice where all my mail came in for “Mr. Morris” and I felt like I got more respect. It has also hurt me at times as we are all sitting around waiting for Mr. Morris, but I was already in the room.

The one thing I know about myself is that when I feel injustice has occurred, I am like Able biting on that bear’s leg and not letting go. I love being a trial lawyer because I love changing the course of someone’s life because I know how to help. I love it even more now that I have children and I want to do everything I can to make this planet safer and better for them when I am gone.
