    There are many ways to judge the quality of a lawyer, and Morgan scores high in all of them. He has amassed a great deal of courtroom and trial experience in his career, and achieved remarkable results. But beyond that, he is a great person in general. I know this firsthand because Morgan began his career at my office in Wenatchee. His work and results were exemplary and we were sorry to see him leave, although we understood his desire to return to his roots. If you need a lawyer that will listen to you, fight for you, and care about the result he gets for you, give Morgan a call.

  • Neil Peter Diemer

    Morgan and I were recently opposing counsel on a case that was tried to a jury. Morgan was brought in to work on the case shortly before we went to court, and his experience and skill in the courtroom were evident. Based on this experience, I believe anyone would be fortunate to have Morgan representing them before a jury.
