Morgan Wood Bembry is a business and estate planning lawyer in Lawrenceville, Georgia. She joined her father, William B. Wood, in his practice in early 2013 because she wanted to gain the benefit of his years of experience and build her practice in general business law and state and local tax. She is also developing an estate planning and administration practice, an area in which she concentrated in law school.
Wood & Bembry LLC advises business clients of all sizes on legal matters outside of the courtroom - from analyzing formation and organization issues, to negotiating routine agreements or significant deals, to dealing with state and local tax questions, to selecting and protecting trademarks. The firm also works with individuals on their personal estate planning needs.
Morgan received her J.D. from the University of Georgia School of Law, where she graduated cum laude in 2011 and served as managing editor of the Georgia Law Review. During law school, Morgan interned with Judge Susan Tate of the Athens-Clarke County Probate Court and with the Georgia Governor’s Office of Consumer Affairs.
Prior to law school, Morgan worked in marketing and communications for a large Atlanta law firm. She earned her A.B.J., cum laude, from the University of Georgia, majoring in public relations.
Morgan is a Gwinnett County native and product of the Gwinnett County Public Schools, having graduated from Brookwood High School. She now lives in Atlanta with her husband, William, and their dog, Abbey. Morgan is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, Atlanta Bar Association, and Georgia Association for Women Lawyers, serving on its Foundation Board since 2013. She is also a member of the Georgia Conservancy and the Delta Gamma Atlanta Alumnae Chapter.
