Biography

Attorney Michael J. Morse is the founder of The Mike Morse Law Firm in Southfield, Michigan. Morse focuses his practice on personal injury law, representing clients who have been injured due to car accidents, truck accidents or other catastrophes caused by negligence in the metropolitan Detroit area as well as Ann Arbor, Dearborn, Canton, Mount Clemens, Troy, Warren and Southeast Michigan. He also handles a variety of Social Security matters.

After earning a bachelor’s degree in business from The University of Arizona, Morse attained his law degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, where he graduated cum laude. He has been admitted to practice law in the state courts of Michigan since 1992.

Along with being an experienced litigator in the area of personal injury, Mike serves as an arbitrator in multiple counties, including Macomb, Oakland and Wayne. He has authored a book on personal injury litigation and regularly speaks on personal injury topics on both state and national level.

Honored for his accomplishments in the legal profession, Morse has received various awards and recognition during his years in practice. Some of these awards include being named one of America’s 50 Most Influential Trial Lawyers by The National Law Journal and The Trial Lawyer Magazine, DBiz Top Lawyer, Super Lawyer’s Top Rated Lawyer, and Lawyers Weekly Leader in the Law. In 2020, Morse was also named an Amazon #1 Best-selling Author for his book called Fireproof.

Mike has been featured in several Detroit-area publications and was given the “Spirit of Detroit” award in 2015 for his generous backpack contribution to students attending Detroit Public Schools. This initiative turned into Project Backpack that has now donated over 190,000 backpacks to students in need.

Morse is a member of the State Bar of Michigan and the American Association for Justice. He is also involved with the Michigan Association for Justice, serving as an executive board member.
