Boca Raton, Fla., Nov. 5, 2021 — Congratulations to Boca Raton-based elder law attorney Ellen S. Morris, member, Cozen O’Connor, who was honored with a Legal Award from South Florida Business and Wealth last night. The live awards ceremony and networking event celebrated top legal executives at the Museum of Science and Discovery in Fort Lauderdale.
The joint Legal Awards and Legal Guide Release Party celebrated the accomplishments, acumen and dedication of South Florida’s “top-flight attorneys,” according to South Florida Business and Wealth. Morris received the Legal Award for “Boutique Law Firm (Palm Beach).”
“I’m honored to receive this award and to be recognized for my efforts as both an elder law attorney and an advocate for families, the elderly and people with disabilities,” said Morris, who is also the co-chair of the Joint Public Policy Task Force of the Elder Law Section of The Florida Bar and the Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorneys (AFELA) for the Elderly and Disabled.
