About Me

      A trial lawyer since 1984, Sam Morgan has focused his practice on employment rights and business disputes since 1990.  Mr. Morgan's practice is primarily litigation, but it also includes providing advice and counsel to both individual employees and management-side clients seeking to resolve their disputes without litigation.   


      Mr. Morgan pursues and defends against employment-related lawsuits, such as breach of employment contract and wrongful discharge claims, age discrimination, sexual harassment, race discrimination, Family and Medical Leave Act, "Whistleblowers" and other unlawful retaliatory discharge claims, non-payment of wages, sales commissions and overtime pay, the enforcement of restrictive covenants such as non-competition agreements, confidentiality agreements, and disputes over the misappropriation, use and/or disclosure of proprietary information and/or trade secrets.  The business disputes and lawsuits include minority owner oppression claims, breach of commercial contracts, and a variety of business torts. 

     These cases are litigated in state and federal courts, or in administrative agencies such as the Michigan Department of Civil Rights and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or in private arbitration.  

     On the advice and counsel side, Mr. Morgan counsels and advises business owners and human resource on workforce management issues, the development of personnel policies and procedures, discipline and termination decisions, and investigations of sexual harassment complaints and employee misconduct.  He also assists both employee and employer clients with employment contracts, executive compensation agreements, and the negotiation of severance pay and separation agreements. 

     Mr. Morgan is AV-rated ("Preeminent") by Martindale-Hubbell, and is a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America.  He has also been listed in Best Lawyers in America 2006 through 2010, for Labor and Employment Law, and he has been listed in SuperLawyers 2006 through 2010, for his work in representing Plaintiffs in Employment Litigation.  He is a graduate of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, B.A., 1981, and Michigan State University College of Law, J.D., 1984.

     A member of the State Bar  of Michigan since 1984, Mr. Morgan is also admitted in the US District Court, E.Dist. Michigan, the US District Court, W. Dist. Michigan, and the US Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.  He is a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA), American Bar Association, Labor & Employment Section, Detroit Metropolitan Bar Association, Macomb County Bar Association, Monroe County Bar Association, and the Novi Chamber of Commerce.

     Mr. Morgan's practice is primarily in southeastern Michigan, in Detroit, Oakland County, Wayne County, Macomb County, Washtenaw County, and Monroe County.  He has also handled cases in federal courts, administrative agencies and in arbitration in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Florida, Connecticut, Arkansas and Nevada.  You can contact Sam Morgan at smorgan@gmgpc.com
