About Jessica

Learn Jessica’s areas of practice.

As a graduate of Belmont Univeristy College of Law, I was always taught to invest in my community.  Supporting families in times of need directly influences society and builds a better Nashville. I understand that not all families are the same; it is my goal to develop individualized approaches based on each client’s unique needs. When faced with cookie-cutter statutes, I use my background in business to find creative solutions for my clients.

I provide quality representation in an array of practice areas, including: adoption, divorce, child custody, child support, cohabitation agreements, guardianship, grandparent visitation, and pre-nuptial agreements. My practice extends to Davidson and Williamson County and most surrounding counties as well.

Our custody case turned our world upside down. When I found Jess Morgan she made the whole situation easier to handle and process. She always kept me informed and stayed in contact through out the entire process. She is very detail oriented and stayed on top of everything. Not to mention, she listened to me vent and helped me work through it. The one thing she did that will keep her number one to my family was put my daughter's needs first. If there is ever a time I need a lawyer again, Jess will be the first person I turn to. I cannot say enough about all she did for us and will forever be grateful to her, as well as everyone at Digby Family Law, PLC.

Incredible Support and Service
Jess is an extremely detail oriented and helpful lawyer. She helped me navigate a very challenging time in my life going through a divorce and child custody agreement. The quality of service was incredible, and Jess did a great job of advising me so I always felt very confident that we were getting the best outcome. I would recommend Jess to absolutely anyone! And I would also definitely recommend Jess to anyone from the LGBTQIA+ community. Going through legal matters in Tennessee can be very difficult for us and Jess was so supportive, and accepting of me, and did a great job navigating legal issues relating to my identity.

Digby Family Law is an amazing group of women who helped me through my divorce. Especially my personal attorney Jessica Morgan. She was extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and understanding. She listened to my needs and worked with me to get what I wanted and deserved. Very timely responses. The entire staff was very helpful through my entire divorce process making it painless. I highly recommend Jessica or any of her partners at Digby Family Law.

So grateful for our adoption attorney, Jess Morgan!
I can't express enough gratitude for Jess Morgan for handling our readoption cases. We adopted our daughters internationally in 2018 and 2022 and knew that readoption stateside was the last step in the years long process. Both times we used Ms. Morgan's services, it was one of the very easiest parts of the whole journey. She took over every single step and was incredibly communicative and efficient. It felt like in a snap and we had all the paperwork we needed. Kudos to the best adoption lawyer we could ask for. Thanks Jess!

Dedicated and Informative
Ms. Morgan was hired to represent on my behalf and advise on changes to an existing parenting plan. During this process Ms. Morgan and her office kept me updated every step of the way and made sure I had copies of every correspondence with the court and opposing counsel. The guidance I received was clear and informative. If I were to need legal services provided my Ms. Morgan I wouldn’t hesitate to hire again.

Excellent Attorney
Jess and I spoke to start the process of my divorce and immediately I felt as though I was in the hands of someone understanding both the severity of the situation and being capable of speaking to me in a way that gave me the confidence that she would protect me if the need were to arise. I couldn't have asked for more. Through the entire process I knew exactly what was needed from me and what Jess would be providing me with. Communication was always prompt and concise, making it very easy to know where I was in the process and she was able to articulate legalese in a way that a layman like myself could understand easily. Finally came the day in court the most nerve racking part of the process to me, she was early, and laid out exactly how the process would play out. She left nothing out, and we were in and out of the court room in no time.

Response from Jessica Morgan October 4, 2021
Thank you so much for your kind words. One of my main goals for all of my clients is to empower them with knowledge so they can make the best decisions possible during a time where they may feel unable to control their circumstances. For your sake, I hope we won't have to work with you again, but please don't hesitate to reach out if you do need us in the future! Best of luck!

Readoption
Ms. Morgan helped us through the readoption process after bringing our daughter home from India. It was incredibly smooth and she did all the heavy lifting. We were very thankful to have someone help us through that after a long, tough season of international adoption. Highly recommend.

Best Lawyer in Nashville!
I can’t tell you how grateful I am to the person that recommended Jess Morgan. From the beginning she walked me through every step of the way. She always made sure everything was in my best interest. I also really liked that she was 100% transparent with me on everything. I absolutely hope I never have to use her services again but if I do I will definitely be coming back

Simply The Best
Jess and the entire firm were incredibly helpful from the beginning of our journey to the end. Jess was thorough and helpful, always communicating with us and never left us wondering. We have worked with attorneys in the past who took weeks to return calls or emails but Jess was always prompt in responding right away and explaining the process in a way we could understand. I HIGHLY recommend her! Thanks to Jess we were finally able to adopt!

Jessica was a great partner and legal representative for me. She listened carefully to how I wanted to proceed, gave me great advice and helped my case get settled. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking for an attorney.

Swift, insightful and supportive
Jess was very helpful during my divorce case. The divorce itself was straightforward but took place in the middle of the pandemic, and given that I don’t live in the US, I was completely dependent on my lawyer for how my case was run. Jess explained the whole process in detail at the beginning, always answered my questions promptly and kept me posted about what was happening. I was surprised how quickly the procedure was conducted- I fully expected it to drag. Throughout our communication I found her supportive, honest, listening to me, knowledgeable and empathetic.

The family law council you are looking for.
I cannot say enough how excellent it was to work with Jess Morgan. She worked on my case during 2020 and as a result, we communicated via phone and email yet I never felt that she was distanced from my case. I was honestly surprised when I realized we had not met in person prior to the hearing, her communication with me had been so clear and helpful that I could have sworn we had been meeting in person. Furthermore, she knew everything I needed to do in preparation and communicated this to me concisely, facilitating the completion of everything needed in my case in a timely manner.

Excellent Experience
Prior to hiring Jess, I interviewed several attorneys in the Nashville area. During our initial consultation, Jess set herself apart from her peers by having familiarized herself with my situation beforehand (I provided a factsheet ahead of the consultation—some other attorneys did not bother to read it first) and taking diligent notes during our conversation. By demonstrating this level of engagement, Jess gave me insight into how I might expect her to handle my situation in the long run (I was correct about this). During the consultation, I also appreciated that Jess played devil’s advocate; entertaining multiple perspectives helped me understand the process from a legal—as opposed to a lay-person’s—perspective, determine my priorities, and have realistic expectations. While the next year was quite a challenge on a personal level, I never questioned whether my situation was in good hands with Jess or not. During particularly trying times, Jess was available to guide me through the process and act as a sounding board. There were a few key times when Jess offered advice contrary to what a lay-person might think was the best way forward. As we had spent considerable time working together and discussing pathways, I felt there was sufficient trust in place for me to take her advice. I’m glad I did; we were able to achieve an excellent outcome for my family and for this I am incredibly grateful. Thank you Jess!
