Positive experience with lawyer
The advantages of structuring my ultimate desires about assets in a manner that would be of significant service to my heirs were articulated by Attorney Russel in a professional manner. During my visit to his office, he was able to put together a will, a living will, a durable power of attorney, and a deed transfer in a highly efficient manner. As a consequence of this, while I was leaving, I had an overwhelming sense of peace. Atty. Russel and the Morgan Legal Group have provided me with great services, and I do not hesitate to recommend them without reservation.

Thankful for professionalism
I definitely suggest Morgan Legal Group as a professional, experienced, and approachable law firm dealing in Guardianship. My mother was admitted to a nursing home last summer, and her living conditions and treatment there were appalling. Following her death, our family decided to seek legal advice in order to investigate the possibilities of taking legal action against the nursing facility for what we felt to be guardianship and neglect. We went with Morgan Legal Group and have never looked back. Attorney Russel's compassion for our loss and devotion to justice were attributes we all knew he would vigorously campaign for. Attorney Russel worked diligently for our family's fairness and excellent outcomes, as he does for all of his clients. We were quite pleased with the settlement we secured on my mother's behalf and the justice that was given. Thank you for your attention and assistance throughout this process, Attorney Russel.

Thanks for everything!
Finding out that the nursing home that cared for your fragile loved one ignored them is heartbreaking. I needed someone who believed in justice and holding neglectful parties accountable in such a difficult scenario. Elder Abuse Lawyer Russel Morgan was that individual. He explained the legal process step-by-step. He kept me updated and was available to answer any queries. During this difficult period, Russel's assistance and compassion were vital. His priority was justice, but he also took the time to comprehend my loved one and me. I am so grateful Russel Morgan represented my loved one. If you struggle for justice, I highly recommend Morgan Legal Group. Russell, thanks for everything.

STRONGLY RECOMMEND! Russel and his colleagues were a tremendous resource for our estate planning needs, and they helped us construct a plan that provides us peace of mind that all of our wishes and family needs will be satisfied if something were to happen to my husband and me, or one of us.

Professionalism and attention to detail.
After moving from Pennsylvania to New York my husband and I realized the importance of updating our trust documents. We asked a friend for recommendations. She suggested Russel Morgan. We're incredibly grateful for her suggestion because Russel and his team have shown professionalism and attention to detail. Throughout the process Russel met with us times either in person or via Zoom ensuring that we fully comprehended and felt at ease, with the changes being made. There's no doubt that Russel's an exceptional estate planning professional. We wholeheartedly endorse his services for anyone seeking estate planning assistance. He's truly the best!
