Practice areas
  1. Bankruptcy and debt
    75%
    I file approximately 200 chapter 7/13 cases a year on behalf of D.C. and Maryland consumers. If appropriate, I will file a corporate bankruptcy or simply help a company wind up under State law. I aggressively use the bankruptcy court as a forum for perusing all of my client’s rights under both Federal and State law.

    14 years

  2. Litigation
    25%
    My litigation practice is almost exclusively in bankruptcy court. In any given year I will participate in 20-25 lawsuits on behalf of debtors and creditors. I have defended and pursued numerous fraud cases under 11 U.S.C. Section 523 and 11 U.S.C. Section 727 with tremendous results for my clients. Additionally, I have successfully sued debt buyers, collection agencies and financial institutions and typically recover over $100,000 to my clients each year for creditor abuse.

    19 years

I primarily focus on debtor-side bankruptcy.  I handle approximately 200 bankruptcy cases a year and twenty adversary proceedings (lawsuits that arise in the context of a bankruptcy case).  Each case is important and we treat chapter 7 clients with the same level of respect and care as corporate cases.  I do not charge for the consultation and I'm always willing to find the best solution for my clients.  

I am a member of the Maryland, D.C. and California bars as well as the United States District Courts for the District of Maryland, District of Columbia, Northern District for the District of California and the United States Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit.

Great attorney
Morgan Fisher is a great bankruptcy lawyer. I filed in 2013 not only was he kind and compassionate. I was taught how to obtain and maintain my credit without abusing it. I now have a credit score in the high 600s and I'm in a first time homebuyers program ready to purchase my first home. Thank you so much Mr Fisher.

Morgan is Great
After the court ordered that my initial filing, which I made myself (I am an attorney but do not handle bankruptcy filings) would be dismissed with prejudice I started looking for an attorney to help. Several other bankruptcy attorneys declined to take on my case because it was very complicated and not a straight cookie cutter filing. I was referred to Morgan by another attorney and Morgan was able to step in at the 11th hour and resurrect my case. The other attorneys that reviewed my case suggested that I would not qualify for a chapter 7 discharge and instead recommended a chapter 13 filing. Morgan carefully reviewed the case and said that while not straight forward, a chapter 7 discharge was possible. I received a chapter 7 discharge. Morgan is smart and personable. He has great relationships with the Maryland trustees. He was always professional and respectful providing both letter of the law advice as well as practical guidance throughout the process. He and his staff are always responsive to inquiries and always provided me with notice of all filings and actions in my case. Morgan Fisher is the only attorney to whom I will refer Maryland bankruptcy cases.

Bancrupty Chapter 7
Morgan Fisher and associates helped my husband and I through Chapter 7. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. I have just recommended him to a friend.

Honest and down to earth
I would ABSOLUTELY recommend (and I already have) Morgan to others. He was very knowledgeable about how to handle our situation. He even already had prior experience with creditors that had taken advantage of us. He presented our options and was able to help us prevent foreclosure and vehicle repossession. He is amazing. He helped us not feel guilty and continues to help us even after our court case was over. We ended up having to go to court and we witness him fighting for us and our payment plan to be affordable if either my husband and I were to lose our employment. He was able to win and relieved the incredible amount of stress from debt collectors off of our shoulders. We were grateful he worked so hard because just a few short months after we were confirmed in court my husband DID lose his job. We're still able to make our payments and don't have to worry about whether we have to skip bills or not.

They made my bad situation easier to handle with their knowledge and professionalism!
Both Morgan Fisher and his staff, especially Stephanie were extremely pleasant to work with. Punctual, informative and I never felt as though I was bothering them when I had questions. I will use them again in the future should I ever require legal services.

Friendly & Efficient
He came highly recommended and I have referred him to several people myself. Very knowledgable and straight-forward. He kept us informed about every aspect of our case so it was smooth sailing from beginning to end. The entire office staff was great also.
