I have used Michael Morgan twice and am extremely pleased with his professionalism. He was very inormative and was able to win both in both cases. Michael is time efficient. I will use his services again if needed, no questions asked..

Excellent Lawyer!
Mike helped me settle a dispute with State Farm over my motorcycle accident. Great attorney, handled himself very well, and got a proper settlement from State Farm. I strongly recommend Mike Morgan.

Trustworthy & Knowledgeable
Michael Morgan has handled several legal issues for me over the past few years. He is a real go-getter who understands the ins and outs of the legal system and always seems to have my best interest at heart. He is trustworthy, knowledgeable and eager to explain the process to those of us less informed. If you're looking to have one of the good guys in your corner, look no further!

Excellent Lawyer
Mike was a great lawyer for me and my case. A car accident injury left me out of pocket for my hospital stay and my car damage. Mike Morgan handled the case with great skill and I ended up with a settlement with the insurance company of the other driver. I was very happy in the end of the case. Thank you everyone at Morgan Dramis. Thank you thank you!

Professional Representation
I was going through a tough time with a bad business partner. Mr. Morgan was very knowledgeable in explaining all of my options and he offered his professional opinion for best course of action. It was a big relief to put my trust in Mr. Morgan. I got the settlement I was looking for and then some. Mr. Morgan even offered some great advice for future business deals.

Integrity
Recently, while going through a divorce and in need of legal advice, I had the fortunate experience of working with Michael Morgan. Michael stepped up right away and offered me his sound, legal expertise. He helped me sift through the complex legalities of a divorce, and kept me focused on what I needed to do to get through a very difficult time in my life. I would recommend Michael Morgan to anyone who is need of an attorney. His integrity and logical, understanding of the law helped me in providing clarity in a difficult situation.

Great Lawyer!
Mike Morgan was very effective as my corporate lawyer. He handled several legal matters for me. He was prompt, knowledgeable and demonstrated tremendous negotiating ability.

Fast Action!
Mr. Mike Morgan is an awesome Attorney. Took the time to understand my cases. Most attorneys would charge me for a quick phone call question, he did not. Met with me on my time schedule. I never felt like I was just another monthly billing. Most attorneys are afraid or not any good at trial. Mike excels in a court room and uses this experience as leverage. He got me the settlement I deserve.

Comitment
Mike was readily available and was always one step ahead of the issues I was facing. It feels almost as if you are dealing with a family member while talking to Mike. I realize this is "His Job" but to know he is on your side really makes a world of difference and he is unwavering in his support of you and your family in the face of any legal issues....

I would hire Michael Morgan again.
Michael Morgan has helped me with several legal issues and always with positive results. He is honest and takes the time to explain the legal issues, so I have a better understanding of my case and what's involved. I believe he fights for what is right and not just because it's his job.

Great Construction Law Attorney
Mike has helped us improve our business by keeping us informed of construction laws. He's also helped us recover funds from customers who did not pay.

Professional, gets results
I was extremely satisfied with the way that Mr. Morgan handled my case. He won my case for me. I was not sure what to expect legally, but he kept me well informed and was able to get a maximum settlement for me. Thank you so much. I hope to never need another attorney, but if I do I know who I can trust.

Wonderful attorney!
My landlord was giving me a tough time returning my security deposit. A lawyer friend suggested I contact Michael Morgan. This was great advice because Michael really came through for me. I could not have found a more professional, knowledgeable or caring attorney. I highly recommend his services.
Posted by Luke | October 27, 2011
A very good and responsive attorney!
I had a troublesome issue regarding a landlord's refusal to return my security deposit on a home I was renting. After explaining the facts of my case to Michael Morgan he immediately took action resolving the dispute to my complete satisfaction. I highly recommend him if you need legal assistance or advice.

Got Great Representation From Michael Morgan
Michael helped me deal with my car accident. He worked very hard for me and I ended up with a very nice settlement from the insurance company. I was very happy with the result in my case and I would definitely recommend Mr. Morgan to anyone who needs a lawyer.

automobile accident
I was involved in a car accident, and tried to settle things myself. The other insurance company only offered me out of pocket expenses. Mike got me the full amount on the other person's policy, as well as an additional settlement from my company. I was very pleased with the results, along with his very friendly, and professional attitude. I would highly recommend this firm
