Rivers Morrell is a personal injury attorney that has appeared in several TV and Radio programs as well as newspapers nationally, and here in the Los Angeles area. Recently, Rivers was interviewed on March 21, 2016 by Fox 11 Los Angeles KTTV. In California, if you have an STD you are required to tell all potential partners of your condition prior to intimate contact. It is a crime not to do so, and if you contract an STD from a partner without prior warning, you can hold them financially responsible for transmitting an STD.

Rivers J. Morrell, III Named “Lawyer of Distinction” for 2016

rjm lawyers of distinction borderUnited States Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger predicted 35 years ago that America was “turning into a society overrun by hordes of lawyers, hungry as locusts”. At that time there were 450,000 lawyers in the United States. As of 2015, there were roughly 1.3 million licensed lawyers in the United States according to the American Bar Association. The additional 40,000 law students graduate every year in the US serves to further inflate this growing bubble.

The Lawyers of Distinction is recognized as the fastest growing community of distinguished lawyers in the United States.  Membership is limited to the top 10% of attorneys in the United States.  Members are invited based upon objective evaluation of an attorney’s qualifications, license, reputation, experience, and disciplinary history.
