This was my first legal case ever (outside of basic traffic tickets) where I had to hire an attorney. For context, I was a never married father that wanted to have more time with my newborn than the standard weekends. I wanted 50/50 time and Morgan was able to get it for me after a long back and forth in court.
I honestly couldn't put a price on the extra time I was awarded with my son, and she was able to make it happen. I really couldn't say anything negative about the experience that had anything to do with the firm.
Responsive, thorough and honestly bull dogs in the courtroom that made me feel like nothing was left on the table. When I stated a concern she listened and when I stated the areas that were non negotiable they took the lead without hesitation. Family court sucks, but she will make it not so bad (which is as good as it gets). And also a shout out to her associate Simul who was also top notch.

Morgan's track record speaks for itself leaving little to no need for a review. However, receiving a great review is well deserved. What separates one professional from another is knowledge, pride, and passion for what one does. Morgan demonstrated excellence in all three. She and her team have mastered the art of this profession not just the profession alone. My case was handled by two other attorneys and firms prior to reaching Morgan and her team. Faced with child support laws that are in much need of reform I had lost all hope. After my first consult I felt nothing but confidence. Morgan was honest and upfront with the challenges that laid ahead as well as potential outcomes. I never felt as though she was trying to sell me false hope. My case closed in less than two months with no additional (fabricated) costs and a more than favorable outcome that was against all odds. I would and have highly recommended Morgan as the one to call first.

I interviewed several attorneys and later chose Morgan from Beerman Law to represent me in a contentious divorce involving gambling dissipation. She was sharp, responsive, aggressive and considerable She always looked out for my best interest and listened to my concerns and questions. I always knew, in the end, all decisions were mine but she offered realistic, helpful opinions when asked. She worked with Katie Post, another talented attorney in their firm so I had the best of both worlds. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for one of the smartest and most talented attorneys in Chicago.
