Great Person & Lawyer
This letter serves as a recommendation for Morgan & Morgan Business Trial Group. In selecting a law firm to represent my case, I was searching for an out of state firm that was willing to take my case on a contingency basis in Florida. The Morgan & Morgan firm was recommended to me by a family member who is a lawyer. My case was very complex and demanded special attention to detail. Attorney William Lewis agreed to represent my case on the basis that Morgan & Morgan would not be paid up-front hourly fees and payment would be contingent on winning. I thought that I had hired a lawyer but what I received was a well-oiled team of lawyers working on my case. The amount of hours Mr. Lewis and his team spent on my case was astonishing. Their ability to quickly understand my case and break it down where even I could better prepare was one of the most appreciated factors of this experience. Long before we went to trial I realized I had made the right choice. The attention to detail in all phases of the process was impeccable from jury selection to closing oral arguments. My case was won and I was awarded more money than I had asked for. Mr. Lewis then helped to collect the money that was awarded. I highly recommended Mr. Lewis and Morgan & Morgan Business Trial Group. Sincerely

Employment Contract Litigation
William assisted in a contract breach by a physician that employed my wife. Per the contract, if the employer/employee relationship were to end, she was owed wages and a payout on a percentage of equity in the practice. The doctor refused to pay what was rightfully owed per the contract language. Thus, we hired William to negotiate/litigate on our behalf. After 4 months, the doctor remitted full payment to my wife. William is very knowledgeable and great to work with. In our particular situation, his strategy was prudent and he displayed very strong negotiating skills. The amount of communication throughout the process was exceptional. We would use him in the future and we strongly recommend William.

Highly Competent and Professional
I was wronged by a business partner and was left with no other option than to sue. The counterparty in my suit had significantly more resources than me, so it was important that I not put myself in a position where I could be outspent. Will Lewis and the Business Trial Group afforded me that opportunity. From day 1 I knew that my case was important to Will and his staff. It was clear he was committed to the best outcome for me, not the most fees for his firm. I was given honest, sound advice even when it wasn’t what I wanted to hear. There were never any surprises. He was always professional and prepared. It was clear in my mediation that Will’s competence level far exceeded the “white shoe” lawyers we were up against. The smartest guy in the room was on my side of the table. This led to a satisfactory settlement for which I am thankful. I highly recommend Will Lewis and Morgan & Morgan’s Business Trial Group.
