About Me

Morgan Stogsdill focuses her practice in the areas of family law, divorce and child custody cases, as well as prenuptial agreements.  Ms. Stogsdill is highly experienced in litigation.  When litigation is not required, she negotiates with the parties and/or attorneys for an optimal outcome in amicable and contentious cases.  As a Partner at Beermann, Ms. Stogsdill is qualified to handle all types of family law issues and works to individually tailor the strategy to each client, on a case by case, basis.   


Ms. Stogsdill counsels clients on the various aspects of dissolution of marriage and paternity proceedings, including child custody, support, visitation, property division and all financial issues related to divorce. She also represents clients in post-dissolution matters and civil litigation related to orders of protection.  In 2013, Ms. Stogsdill spent eight (8) days in Houston, Texas at an elite family law trial seminar, the Houston Family Law Trial Institute.
