5.0 stars 12 totalReview Morgan Stogsdill

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.

Some divorces can be trickier than others and on a scale of 1-10, mine seemed like a solid 9. After analyzing many potential different courses of action, Morgan formulated the correct strategy and then executed it flawlessly. Extremely knowledgable, attentive, and responsive.

Morgan represented me in my divorce and she was excellent across the board. On top of her game, she was not only compassionate, but to-the-point and tough as nails when it was necessary. All facets of my divorce process were well balanced. She was great.

I found Morgan after two strikes with other lawyers that "talked a good game" but left me feeling lost and hopeless. I paid almost as much in fees for other lawyers that were "winging it" at court appearances. If you find that Morgan and her team are marginally more expensive than some others there are many good reasons that justify the difference.
It's difficult for attorneys to take the time to really learn the particulars of your case as all clients wish, but don't want to pay for. Morgan walks that line fairly well and actually engages in some level of strategy while keeping things realistic and professional.
In the end, legal representation is a business and clients can certainly feel like the whole system is skewed unfairly against them. Morgan understands this and does an excellent job of mitigating the emotional and financial turmoil of a prolonged legal matter where others would just get by punching the clock.
Morgan helped me achieve pretty close to the best outcome anyone should rightfully expect in my particular circumstance. Recommending her is a foregone conclusion.

I retained Morgan Stogsdill as my lawyer during my divorce. I was very please with Morgan & her team. She was very knowledgeable, approachable, compassionate & reassuring. She was always there to listen, offer support & make suggestions at probably the most difficult time in my life. When I ever I left Morgan a message, she always returned my phone call in a timely fashion even if it was the weekend or in the evening. I was especially impressed at how "tough" Morgan could be when necessary. She went to bat for me & was never afraid to stand up to the opposing lawyer or my "wasband". I was very pleased with the outcome of my divorce. I have recommended Morgan to others & will continue to do so. If need be, I won't hesitate to retain her again once my case is up for review.

Morgan represented me in a custody case for my daughter. This is my second time through this process and the 4th attorney I've used. I had very high expectations of Morgan from the start and she did not disappoint.
This process often leaves you feeling very vulnerable, alone and confused. I can honestly say that the way that Morgan and her team operate will leave you feeling at ease, confident in your decisions and well informed. Time and time again Morgan stuck up for me and protected me.
I know she has many more clients (and many more lucrative ones as well) but you would never know it. I always felt well attended to. My situation was quite a bit out of the norm and the opposing attorney was very difficult to deal with. Despite that, she remained patient and professional throughout my case ensuring that I was treated with respect.
My emails/calls were answered promptly and I was always informed of the opposing attorney's communication. Morgan is a partner in this well renown firm and consistently acts like it. Despite her great position, I found her billing practices more than fair. I live on a firefighter salary and was worried about the cost of her services over a long period of time. However, I was kept informed of my current billings and was always pleasantly surprised at how generous she was in comparison with many other attorneys.
Morgan was a light in an otherwise very dim tunnel. I can tell you first hand that this is not the case with most attorneys, especially in large firms. Her and her team took a horrible process and did everything they could to make it bearable. I am very happy with the judgements we received and would recommend her to anyone looking for a solid legal team.

Morgan was outstanding in every aspect of my case. Her professionalism was second to none as well as her preparation time and time again. My case ran for a year due to a contentious opposition. We won every motion for and against us. Nothing was lost and I actually gained ground as time went on. I could not be happier with the outcome. Thus, my highest recommendation.
