For well over thirty years the Law Firm of Morton & Russo, LLP, has maintained a consistent and progressive presence in the Solano County community, as well as the Solano County Justice system. Over the years both Amy and Dan have fought tirelessly to see that justice is done in the courtroom, community, and within local and State Correctional institutions. Amy, Dan, and the entire Morton and Russo staff are aggressive advocates for those charged with crimes, and are both willing and committed to go that extra mile for every client.
