Sandra Joan Morris Named to SD Metro’s “Best Attorneys” List
Congratulations to Sandra Joan Morris for being named to San Diego Metro Magazine’s annual “Best Attorneys” list, which recognizes attorneys throughout San Diego for their exceptional professional accomplishments as well as their positive impact on the community.
San Diego Metro Magazine highlighted the fact that Ms. Morris was one of only five women to graduate from California Western School of Law in 1969 at a time when female attorneys were excluded from professional networking groups and law firms were hesitant to hire women. Ms. Morris opened her own family law-focused private practice in 1970, which she ran until joining SCMV in 2014.
The publication also noted that Ms. Morris was one of the first women to have been a diplomat in the American College of Family Trial Lawyers, an invitation-only organization of the top 100 family trial lawyers in the U.S.
Of counsel at SCMV and leader of the firm’s Family Law Department, Ms. Morris has extensive experience in a range of family law issues both as a litigator and a counselor. She has been certified as a family law specialist by the State Bar of California since 1980 and is known as one of the top family law attorneys in the U.S.
