Excellent Real Estate Attorney
We hired Morgen Bowers for our home purchase in Valatie this summer. We were moving across state lines and ended up with a rather difficult transaction (unexpected on all fronts) - Morgen was our rock through the whole process. She is efficient, smart, straight-forward, and honest. She always let us know what to expect, what our options were, and guided us through the process. Her staff is wonderful as well. We ended up with a house we love and all parties happy with the outcome. I would use Morgen again for any legal needs in a heartbeat.

Great Lawyer
Morgen has helped me over the years on a number of issues. My last issue had me unnerved and Morgen quickly called me (on a weekend) and I was oh so grateful. She is strategic , and personable, and definitely guided me through the situation so that I could resolve it quickly and effectively with the least amount of expense. She is knowledgeable about both business and personal matters . And I’d highly recommend her.

Highly recommended
Morgen Bowers was my lawyer for the sale of my house. It was a great pleasure to work with her. She came across as very professional, efficient and accurate. She showed great patience with all my layman's questions and made sure I understood every step in the process. I can highly recommend her as your lawyer.

Just perfect
I needed to set up an LLC fairly quickly, and Morgen took care of the entire process with great attention to detail. Her knowledge and experience are deep, and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. I could not recommend a better lawyer to solve my incorporation needs.
