Excellent Attorney
I highly recommend Attorney Morgan. She handled a legal matter for me for much less than I expected to pay.

Experienced, Knowledgable, and Trustworthy
I came to Wendy's office in January of 2012, because my husband stopped making his monthly child support payments. Within a few weeks Wendy had my support payments resumed. My family and I are most thankful for Wendy's help. Her compassion, knowledge, and professionalism goes unmatched.

Best Attorney EVER!!!
I have known Wendy for 20 years now and have retained her twice in 2 different cases. Both times Wendy has been impeccable, thorough, and a fighter for me and the rights of my children. She knows the law in and out and will fight for you with all she is. Professional is an understatement when it comes to Wendy and her staff. I have referred friends/family to her and she has given the same impeccable results for them as well . I personally strongly recommend Wendy Morgan as I am confident she will fight for you as she has for me !!!!!!

Nasty Divorce
I was going through a nasty divorce with my, now, ex-husband. He had gotten an attorney to represent him. It was time I got an attorney to represent me. I found Wendy Morgan. She represented me with the fiery fierce will I needed. Wendy got me everything that I deserved. Wendy had no problem dealing with the other attorney. Wendy paid attention to details my case, and made sure that the divorce was fair and complete.

Compassionate
My ex kept stalking me. He stalked me at work, home, and when I went out with friends. I had called the police on him several times. I needed an attorney. I found Wendy Morgan. She explained to the process on how to get the protection I needed. Wendy also was caring and compassionate towards what I was going through. Wendy never backed down. She can fight for me anytime!

Special Attention
I had a lawsuit that needed special attention. The attorney that I did have could not handle it. He had heard about Wendy Morgan. He recommended me to go to her. I did. He was not wrong. I came and spoke to Wendy Morgan about my case, and I could not believe how knowledgeable she was. Wendy knew about my case and more, before I even came in the door. Wendy gave me the truth to my case. Attorney Morgan me helped achieve my goals. Wendy is honest, smart, and great attorney.

Great Attorney
I was young, pregnant, and alone. The father of my baby was denying that the baby was his. I didn’t know what to do. I needed to get child support for this baby. By now, my baby has been born and is almost a year old. I still have not received anything from his father. I needed to get a attorney. I started looking into which attorney would be best for us. I found that Wendy Morgan handles child support cases. Wendy understood what I was going through. Once she took my case, it didn’t take long before I started getting my child support check. I finally had relief knowing Wendy was on my side. Wendy Morgan is a great attorney, and if you need one, get her!

Really very great and helpful
I had a son while I was in college. The mother and I reached an agreement and I supported my son. When my son was about to graduate high school; the mother sued me for over seventeen years’ back child support. I hired the Law Firm of Wendy R. Morgan. The lawyers there never stopped fighting for me. They were successful getting me credit for all the support I paid over the seventeen years. They did a top flight job for me and will do a great job for you.

Thank you so much.
My sons called me and told me their mother was taking drugs and threatening them with knives. I hired the Law Firm of Wendy R. Morgan who obtained an Emergency Order of Protection for me immediately. They helped me obtain sole allocation of parental responsibilities and their mother can only see them with a supervisor. They saved my children. Thank You, Law Firm of Wendy R. Morgan.

Very much thankful!
I am a senior citizen and was going through a divorce from my second husband. He was trying to take my house, my pension, and any other assets he could get. When I hired the Law Firm of Wendy R.

I highly recommend the Law Firm of Wendy R. Morgan. They are great advocates”.

Experience Matters
I secured the services of The Law Firm of Wendy R. Morgan after several years of off again, on again contentious litigation, while pursuing parenting time with my youngest son. After spending valuable time and resources on a small, garden variety law firm who didn’t specialize in family law, I decided it was time to do some research and find a firm with the can do attitude and experience, that my situation called for. Times are slowly changing but as a father, many times it’s still an uphill battle to fight back against the mentality resulting from all of the years that mother’s had the upper hand in family courts, when it comes to parental allocation and parenting time. That’s why the experience and advocacy coming from a law firm like The Law Firm of Wendy R. Morgan, is vitally important. No one likes to face litigation, especially family law. It can be emotionally draining and contentious. However, if you’re unable to amicably find a solution, you need experienced attorneys to navigate the complex laws. There are never any guarantees of outcomes in court but you always want to be in the best possible legal position you can be in, at all times. Without getting into too many arduous details, my situation was somewhat legally complex. It involved acquiring Court Orders for a Guardian-Ad-Litem and a 604.10(b) professional, just for starters, along with a host of other complications, relating to problematic visitations and HIPAA laws etc. The valuable lesson I learned, is that family law is specialized and requires the attention of a skilled, family law litigator, to know which steps to take and when. The Law Firm Of Wendy R. Morgan has that experience and skill and are available to their clients after hours for emergencies. They are keenly aware of the last minute complexities and questions that can arise in family law litigation, so they are able to think fast on their feet to answer them and you won’t have to worry about calling them to ask them what the next step should be. They always have your back and your best interests in mind while they represent you. If you secure the services of Wendy and her team, you can rest assured that when you walk into the courtroom, you’ll have an advocate fighting for you and your interests and that you’ll always be in the best possible legal position that you can be in. Wendy and her entire legal team have a firm grasp of the subject matter and the law and it shows when she controls the conversation in the courtroom and drafts painstakingly detailed Court Orders, (which you’ll discover are an absolute necessity in contentious domestic litigation). Do yourself a favor, if you’re in need of competent legal representation and a fighter in a family law matter, call them and get an opinion about where you currently stand and what your next legal step(s) should be. I’m thankful I secured The Law Firm of Wendy R. Morgan, before me ex did. If you’ve spoken to Wendy or Katherine at the firm and are seeking a personal testimonial, you can ask them for my contact information. I’m willing to share my personal experience with the firm, with you. J.J. M

They are very good
I highly recommend using the Law Firm of Wendy R. Morgan. They are very good attorneys. They are highly experienced and know how to cover all the angles. I had a horrible situation with my husband who was abusing me and making my life unbearable. They obtained an order of protection, support and maintenance and custody of my children for me and gave me a new start on life.

Great Lawyer!
After contacting Attorney Wendy Morgans office my husband and I felt as though were making the right decision here. We were looking for an attorney to help us with custody issues. We were highly impressed with her compassion, knowledge and professionalism. She helped us get the results we were hoping for while staying within our financial means. I would not hesitate to contact Attorney Morgans office again for any of our legal needs.

A Very Compassionate Lawyer
When I first started my divorce I did not know what to do or where to go. I was lucky enough to find Wendy R. Morgan. Her and her staff was able to help me every step of the way. When I called I was always able to speak with her and she was always able to calm my nerves. Wendy fought for my rights and the outcome for me was very good and fair.

Wendy and his team are really great - highly recommend firm
I am writing this review to highly recommend this law firm. Last year, I was trying to figure out how to handle a messy and complicated divorce. I am absolutely petrified of having to hire a lawyer - I’ve never needed one before and was so intimidated! Wendy explained all my options and broke things down for me in a language I understood. I didn’t go to law school so I don’t speak Lawyer. It turned out to be a lot less stressful than I imagined and I felt like she had my back throughout the entire process. Whenever I had a question her or someone from her team was quick to respond. The one time I had an emergency with visitation on a Saturday I flew into a serious panic. But I called her office, their answering service quickly got a hold of someone and I had my answers in less than ten minutes. Ten Minutes! On a Saturday! I can’t say enough nice things about them. Thanks again, Wendy & Team!

Thank Atty. Wendy!
I met Wendy through a friend of a friend when I was complaining about my erratic ex-husband. While I was incredibly stressed during the process, Wendy helped me see things in a logical way rather than the emotional way I had been dealing. I trust Wendy and her integrity is unquestionable. I really wish I’d found her sooner.

She is incredibly amazing lawyer!
Wendy was the shining light that helped me reach the end of the tunnel, in a good way. You may not always like what she says, but it’s always the truth. She tells you like it is and is incredibly savvy and has excellent problem solving skills. I really appreciated her level headedness and quick responses to my questions.

Professional Attorney
I called around to several divorce attorneys near my home and work for an uncontested divorce. Dealing with the secretaries at Wendy Morgan's office were great and they able to get me in for an appointment with days of my call. I met with Attorney Morgan who was able to explain the process in very simple terms. My divorce was finalized very quickly and I could not be happier with Attorney Morgan's office.
