Morghan is not your average divorce lawyer. She is a real person who tailored her services to what I needed -- which was practical advice, tips on compromise, and guidance on getting my divorce completed with the least amount of stress or money. She is also tough, and helped me get a much better settlement than other lawyers I consulted had thought I could ever get. Overall, a great value and the sense that I got what I deserved.

Morghan is an excellent attorney. She is very understanding and patient. She never makes you feel as if you are a bother and she does make you feel that your feelings matter. Great communication and quick response...even if she is working another case or if she's in court she will still respond. I highly recommend her.

Morghan is fabulous! She was very caring and willing and able to answer all of my questions. At such a difficult time in my life, it was important to me to have someone I knew I could depend on, and Morghan was that person. She didn't let me down! I could not have survived my divorce without her!

Morghan wasn't just a lawyer but a mentor, she is caring and helps you through rough days, going through my divorce wasn't easy but in the end I moves on with my life. She made my life and case very easy, and very very intelligent.

I have not had the pleasure of working with Ms. Richardson, but I have followed her work answering questions, etc. on the Avvo site. She is obviously well-informed, thoughtful, and careful. She is wise beyond her years. And, frankly, anybody smart enough to get through law school while being in New Orleans gets my vote. I endorse this lawyer.
