The Hunoval Law Firm, PLLC, welcomes Michael Morris as its lead South Carolina Default Attorney. Michael was named a ‘Rising Star’ by Super Lawyers Magazine in 2013 and 2014. Additionally, Michael was appointed by the South Carolina Supreme Court to the Lawyers’ Fund for Client Protection Committee. Before joining Hunoval, Michael practiced at another multi-state default firm, most recently as lead default attorney for one of its states. He is barred in both North and South Carolina and brings 9 years of default-related experience to the firm.
“After reading about the firm’s innovative Lean Six Sigma approach to process improvement, error reduction, and efficiencies in the March 2014 ABA Journal and its recent inclusion in the USFN, I knew that the firm was raising the bar and on the rise. It is tomorrow’s firm today, and I wanted to be part of the future of our industry. The firm’s heavy reliance on data and statistics as analytical management tools are categorically different than anything I’ve seen before—I’m very impressed by the way the firm is run and see a very, very bright future.” says Michael, on his move to Hunoval The firm’s founder and recent appointee to the North Carolina Banking Commission, Matt Hunoval adds: “Because of our emphasis on process excellence via Lean Six Sigma, we’re conservatively estimating 50%+ growth in the next 12 months; additionally we are actively exploring acquisition opportunities to increase our geographic footprint.”
Matt continues: “There is a palpable Chicken Little ‘the sky is falling’ chorus among the industry as the default market overall contracts, but we couldn’t be more bullish about the future. Our continued growth via market share acquisition is the proof in the pudding. At each inflection point of growth we’ve looked to top-grade key management: Michael’s addition to our team and his reputation for operational excellence in high-growth environments underscores this commitment to attracting top talent to our firm.”
Michael graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (Accounting) magna cum laude, from the University of South Carolina, where he also obtained his law degree.
