About

Mr. Morrow earned his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University in 1981 and his law degree from Wayne State University in 1986. Since 2004, Mr. Morrow has been the Deputy Chief of the Juvenile Division for the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office. As the Deputy Chief, Brian Morrow supervises twenty assistant prosecutors, makes charging decisions on some of the most serious delinquency cases, and has handled hundreds of cases before judges and juries. He also started a juvenile diversion program called Teen Court, which allows certain juveniles who have been charged with a crime to avoid having formal juvenile records by having their cases heard before a jury of their true peers, fellow high school students. In recognition for his leadership in this area, Mr. Morrow was awarded the Anthony C. Wayne Award by the Wayne County Executive's office in 2012 and in 2014, Brian received a Champion of Justice Award from the State Bar of Michigan. Mr. Morrow is a long-time volunteer for Habitat for Humanity in Detroit, who enjoys tennis, horseback riding and fencing. Mr. Morrow is married to Mary, his wife of more than twenty-eight years, and has two adult children, Mark (27) and Charlotte (23).
