Divorce
From the moment I met attorney Morgan, I felt comfortable with him. He asked the right questions and guided me through every step of my divorce. I met a lot of attorneys before I selected him because I moved from another state and I also shopped around when I came to St. Augustine. I made an office visit with two local attorneys who were both well respected. Although they were not taking clients, they advised me and also recommended attorney Morgan. His name was mentioned 3 different times. All the lawyers I visited and also a friend of mind told me that being comfortable and having trust was a very important factor in my decision for choosing an attorney to represent my interests. Mr. Morgan is well respected in town by his colleges and I feel this is important because a lawyer should be tactful and able to negotiate with the other lawyers if a problem arises. As I was guided through the process, I knew that attorney Morgan genuinely cared about my situation as he called on more than one occasion to discuss the case after business hours. My case went in to the magistrate and he prepared well, read all of my journal entries (I had written a journal throughout the problems of my marriage) and went over the entire case before the hearing to make sure we were on the same page. He explained well how to present my answers. His paralegal, Jessica, was also so helpful. She organized everything and was always prompt to respond to my emails and any needs that I had during the case. Attorney Morgan is trustworthy, hard working, and well prepared and most importantly knows the law. I strongly recommend attorney Morgan.

Outstanding Lawyer and Team!
Andrew Morgan and Jessica Versaggi are true professionals with skills and knowledge that set them apart from the rest. Andrew’s focus and commitment are impressive. His ability to maintain calm, navigate the local terrain and explain all strategies as well as potential favorable and non-favorable outcomes is reassuring. Jessica’s attention to detail, efficiency and understanding of the process is extraordinary. Andrew and Jessica made a very difficult process bearable while achieving a reasonable outcome. I highly recommend Andrew and Jessica.

Gets the results you need
Mr. Morgan handled a post-divorce issue involving my child. He got to the bottom of the issue quickly and navigated a resolution with which I am still very happy. Mr. Morgan is extremely competent, an experienced professional and a true advocate for his clients.

Best in town
Andrew Morgan is the best! He always had my best interest in mind, there was a few times I was ready to give up and just agree to whatever my ex wanted only so I could be out of my horrendous marriage and Andrew guided me in the right direction and did not let me cave in. Andrew is very personable, understanding and the best attorney I could have had in my divorce.
