The abuse of the elderly and persons with disabilities in nursing homes, long-term care facilities, and assisted living facilities is a tragic and common problem. Families who have earnestly tried to find a safe and caring home for their vulnerable loved one can be unaware of the physical injuries, psychological harm, or financial loss being inflicted by the people entrusted with their care. When neglect or abuse is discovered, it can be emotionally and financially overwhelming to take care of a loved one, as well as dealing with the perpetrators. Often abusers go unpunished, and families do not get the justice and compensation that they deserve.
The attorneys at Morris James bring an end to the power that abusive nursing homes and care facilities have over you and your loved one. We fight to reveal their abuse and neglect, and to make them pay for the damage that they have caused. We take on the burden of dealing with their administrators, lawyers, and insurance companies so that you can focus on taking care of your loved one. We work hard to get the financial compensation that you need to regain stability and security for your neglected or abused family member.
We have been fighting for victims of negligence in Delaware since we opened our doors in 1932. Our attorneys have more than 150 years of combined experience dealing with the strategies and dominance of large companies and insurance providers, and we are not intimidated. We know our clients’ rights and we listen to your needs. We will fiercely negotiate for you, and go to trial if necessary, to get the compensation that you need and deserve.
If your loved one has been neglected or abused in a Delaware nursing home, long-term care facility, or assisted living facility, we may be able to help. Our attorneys at Morris James are available to talk to you about the rights and options that you have at this difficult time.

- "Couldn't Ask for a Better Attorney for my Needs."
Kevin Healy and Tammy did a great job. I would highly recommend them to my family and friends.
- "Friendly Atmosphere and ability and willingness to get back to you in a timely fashion."
The staff members are friendly and my attorney was attentive to my needs. Phone calls and emails were returned promptly and I was kept informed of the progress of my case. I would recommend the PI Group to my family and friends because of their friendly atmosphere and ability and willingness to get back to me in a timely fashion.
- "Great office staff."
I felt that Kevin went way beyond his duties and I felt like I was part of his family!! What I liked best about the PI Group was that everybody put up with me! I would recommend a relative or friend to the Morris James PI Group because they are great people, very professional, and did a great job.
- "Honesty and friendliness."
My attorney was down-to-earth, honest and friendly. She handled my case in a thorough and attentive manner. Would I recommend the Morris James Personal Injury Group to my family and friends? Absolutely!
- "How quick and understandable the attorney was."
How quick and understandable the attorney was. Everyone was very considerate and helpful with my understanding of the case, as with my injuries. I would go back to Morris James for their services if ever I need to in the future.
- "I am truly grateful for all you have done for my son, Eric."
I am truly grateful for all you have done for my son, Eric. As you know, Eric suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in an automobile accident as a passenger in his own vehicle in October, 2008. As discussed at our first consultation, due to extenuating circumstances, there did not seem to be many options of personal injury compensation for Eric. However, due to your extensive insurance experience, you were able to obtain two insurance settlements for Eric. These two settlements give me peace of mind knowing that Eric has personal funds to meet his needs. As we know, insurance does not cover everything.
Working with you was such a pleasure. I was so impressed by your quick responses to my emails. I liked being able to call you directly and you (!) answered the phone, not a secretary. I never had to leave messages or play phone tag. How efficient and organized! If I have any future legal needs, I will surely call Morris James.
- "I was very comfortable in an uneasy situation."
Kylie was always very professional, courteous, prompt to respond and very helpful. I felt very comfortable when dealing with her. What I liked best about the PI Group was their promptness and they are very professional. I was very comfortable in an uneasy situation. I am sure this was a small case for the office, but the instructions with all involved did not reflect that.
- "Professional and so caring"
My family doctor told me about Susan Ament. This was my first time having to get an attorney. They answered all of my questions and kep me informed of the progress of my case. The staff and and attorneys were professional and so caring.
- "Returned my emails and kept me informed"
Keith Donovan and his staff did a good job. They were attentive to my needs, returned my calls and emails, and kept me informed about the progress of my case. They explained the legal issues clearly so that I could make my decisions. I feel they did a wonderful job!
I have recommended the Morris James Personal Injury Group to others, and will continue to do so.
- "Right on with everything!"
The staff was very helpful. Michael really cared about me and my health and was extremely knowledgeable. They were right on with everything! I would refer the Morris James Personal Injury Group to my family and friends because they are very efficient, helpful and fast to respond.
- "The best is they speak Spanish."
The best is they speak Spanish. Angel is a very nice person and helpful. I wouldn’t change anything…great people, great service!
- "There was never a displeased moment."
I am truly thankful for the representation throughout the years. There was never a displeased moment, a question that went unanswered, or a thought of distrust. This has been an incredible journey despite the circumstance. I have never experienced a relationship as such with the entire firm. You guys turn a bad situation into a positive outcome. During my weakest times, you guys sent me words of comfort to express your condolences. The reputation that this firm has is truly amazing and it’s all because of the wonderful attorneys there. I would like to extend special thanks forever to Susan Ament for her welcoming spirit and especially Mike Owens. I trusted you and you had my best interest. Also to those who helped compile my case.
Thank you, Team!
- "They are more than lawyers..."
Unfortunately, I've had to use law firms numerous times in my life. I have never felt more comfortable, informed, and protected like Keith Donovan and his paralegal Heather made me feel for the past 3 years. They are like our family now. I would tell anyone to give them a chance. They won't be disappointed. They are more than lawyers. They hold your hand through good and bad times. They are truly your friend. Through bad times, they fight to get you through it. They are not a 9 to 5 firm. They are always there for YOU.
- "They fought for me to make sure I received all of my benefits."
I never had to worry about anything, start to finish. Kevin and his staff handled EVERYTHING. Always pleasant. Super efficient. Not having to worry when I was in pain was awesome. And they fought for me to make sure I received all of my benefits. I would most definitely recommend Morris James LLP Personal Injury Group to my family and friends.
- "They made this easy for me."
Kevin Healy cared about my case and helped me. Tammy was great! I had a wonderful experience with Morris James. I thought a lawsuit after an accident would be a whole ordeal and extremely expensive and difficult, but Morris James made the experience easy for me. I had a great experience and would definitely recommend to friends and family.
- "This firm was extremely helpful and made the process less stressful."
Every question was answered with a smile. The receptionist always greeted me right when I walked in. Emails were answered quickly and the attorney informed me of everything he was doing. My attorney told me about every step and made sure I understood everything that was going on. This Firm was extremely helpful and made the process less stressful. I couldn't thank you enough. The whole process was stress-free. The attorney kept amazing contact with me, and was very friendly with all of his questions and concerns. All of this is what would encourage me to recommend this service to my family.

Tammy and Kevin Healy were amazing and kept me informed every step of the way! I couldn't have asked for an easier process or better outcome!
- "From the beginning of my case, they listened and guided."
My attorney was Michael Owen and his paralegal was Madelyn. From the beginning of my case, they listened and guided. I have never gone through this or had a car accident before. My case for Mike and the firm I'm sure was definitely not big money, but they always made me feel valued and important, mainly through their frequent communication. Also, Mike was relatable - not a snob or aloof - great guy. Even though I'm old enough to be his mom, he never treated me in a dismissive manner. Really wonderful experience!
- "I would encourage my family and friends to come to this firm."
I would encourage my family and friends to come to this firm because you're kind and concerned about the clients' needs and injury.
- "Kevin Healy consistently put me at ease"
Kevin Healy consistently put me at ease and helped guide me through the process without making me feel pressured. Kevin and his staff were friendly and prompt in assisting me with my needs. They explained legal issues clearly so I could make informed decisions. Without Kevin's help, I would have been lost.
- "The people are very good and cared about us."
This was a recommendation from a corporate attorney. He was perfect. Kevin Healy was cogent and concise, without a lot of legalese. Tammy was great and always responded quickly. I was kept informed of the progress of my case. Absolutely first rate.
- "The professionalism of Kevin and his team will prompt us to recommend your firm to family and friends."
Kevin was excellent. He showed concern for our injuries and in-depth knowledge of the law. There were some difficult issues that Kevin and his staff resolved with ease. The professionalism of Kevin and his team will prompt us to recommend your firm to family and friends. The personal concern, thorough follow-up, in depth knowledge of legal procedures all contribute to our appreciation of Morris James LLP. Thanks again.
