"We're thrilled to have Reed join the law practice in Craig," Cantafio said. "His commitment to serving the people of Northwest Colorado and his strong advocacy skills are an asset to the firm and to the community."
Morris is a 2003 graduate of the University of Colorado School of Law. He opened Colorado Wilderness Network's Craig office the same year.
Morris said he brings to his law practice his advocacy experience and experience with environmental and land use issues. He said he looks forward to assisting landowners with oil and gas leasing and development issues.
Morris will handle general civil litigation, commercial issues, and oil and gas matters. Waite will continue to focus his practice on family law, criminal defense and general practice.
