About me

Darlynn Morgan founded Morgan Law Group in July, 2005 because she saw a need; and she saw that her unique story and talents could be used to make a difference in the lives of her clients. 


Darlynn graduated in the top 15% in her law school class from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, California in 1996.  While at Loyola Law School, Darlynn was a member of the prestigious Loyola Law Review and was awarded the American Jurisprudence Award for Community Property and Family Law.  After graduation, Darlynn served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable John E. Ryan, a federal judge in the 9th Circuit from 1996 - 1997.  She subsequently practiced at a premier business litigation firm in Orange County.


In 2001 Darlynn became a founding member of the Board of Directors of Mission Valley Bank, a community business bank in Los Angeles. She is also a member of Wealth Counsel, LLC, a national organization of trusts and estates attorneys and other legal, tax and business professionals who maintain the highest level of knowledge and expertise through collaboration and continuing their education on advanced planning topics.


Darlynn is frequently quoted and published in various publications including the Daily Journal.  In 2007 Southern California Lawyer named Darlynn a Super Lawyer, which is awarded to the top 5% of lawyers in southern California. 


She is happily married to Gary and is the proud mother to her son Britton.
