Morton & Gettys to be first tenant of Fountain Place Park building

The law firm of Morton & Gettys will move into its new Rock Hill offices in September on the third floor of the Fountain Park Place. The building is currently under construction at the corner of East Main Street and Elizabeth Avenue. Morton & Gettys will be the first tenant of the building being constructed by Comporium Communications.

“We have been fortunate to have a wonderful team of professionals, led by Warren Norman Company, Inc., who have designed a 21st-century legal office for our firm,” said Josh Vann, a partner at Morton & Gettys.

“This new space promises to have the same warm and comfortable feel of our current office. However, our new offices will feature improved technology and a well-planned layout to aid in our goal of delivering the highest quality and most efficient legal counsel to our clients,” said Jim Morton, one of Morton & Gettys’ founding partners.

In addition to traditional legal services, Morton & Gettys’ new space will allow it to expand mediation services currently offered by partner and certified family law mediator, Michael Smith and certified civil law mediator and managing partner, John Gettys. The new offices will feature multiple conference rooms and additional spaces.

Morton & Gettys has more than 20 employees. As the firm relocates to Fountain Park Place, plans include the addition of another attorney and support staff person.
