Shellie Hutsell Biography:
Shellie Hutsell, Paralegal Extraordinaire at Zachary J. Morris, Attorney at Law has 11 years of experience in the legal field including working at the Texas County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, Harrell, Morris & Stermer, Attorneys at Law and now alongside with Zac in his solo practice.
As far back as she can remember she has wanted to be an integral member of the legal field. In second grade she was asked to come to school dressed as what she wanted to be when she grew up. Let’s just say she didn’t wear a princess dress or a superman cape. She wanted to be an Attorney or in the justice arena. Her desire and determination to reach her goal, led her to taking night and online courses. However, she will say “her hands-on experiences, passion and hard work has gotten her to where she is today.” She has embraced her passion and is devoted to helping others and supporting them in their time of need.
Becoming a mother at a young age wasn’t planned, but that didn’t stop her from raising her children and accelerating her career. She believed her children would benefit from seeing firsthand how hard work pays off, no matter the obstacles in the way. While her older two children have graduated, she enjoys partaking in her youngest child’s education as her learning coach through K12. When she isn’t focusing on her daughter’s education and work, she enjoys reading, taking walks and listening to music.
“I truly love my job and what I do, there aren’t too many people that get to say that. I believe fate has placed me here to help others during their time of injustice, need and uncertainty. I am fortunate to work alongside Zac Morris, an Attorney, that believes in advocating for his clients, bringing justice to all, no matter the challenges or hurtles thrown his way.”
