Joshua “JT” Morris has spent his career representing and counseling clients where the law meets ideas, technology, communication, and constitutional liberties. JT practiced for over eight years in two nationally-recognized law firms located in Washington, D.C., and Austin, Texas. There, JT gained substantial experience litigating complex matters and advocating for a diverse array of clients in courts across the country, and counseled clients on numerous issues related to intellectual property, digital content, and constitutional law matters.
JT’s representative experience includes:
- Representing clients across a variety of industries in intellectual property litigation, including matters relating to copyright infringement, trademark infringement and unfair competition, and patent infringement;
- Representing and counseling individuals and organizations on First Amendment issues and related concerns, including matters involving freedom of speech, religious freedom, and allegations of defamation;
- Counseling and supporting individuals and businesses on trademark registration and brand protection strategy, fair use and copyright infringement concerns, IP, technology, and media licensing; digital content utilization and management; and technology- and media-focused contracts.
- Representing and counseling clients in constitutional litigation on various issues, including Fourth Amendment and due process concerns.
JT handles every client and every case with adherence to the same core values and principled approach that he’s developed throughout his career. Passionate, purposeful, and client-centered representation along with thoughtful, candid advice is what he strives to provide to every client.
JT graduated magna cum laude from Vanderbilt University in 2003, with a double major in computer science and economics, and was inducted into the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society. JT graduated in 2006 from the College of William and Mary Law School, where he was named to the Order of the Barristers.
JT lives outside New Braunfels, Texas with his wife, children, and two hound dogs. When he’s not lawyering or losing a battle of wits with two toddlers, he usually can be found on the rivers and trails of the Texas Hill Country, where he especially enjoys fly-fishing and trail running. JT also blogs on First Amendment developments and free speech issues at The Madison Jamboree.
