Founding attorney of Michael L. Morgan Law Group, Michael L. Morgan, has over two decades of legal experience. Growing up watching courtroom dramas where strong lawyers would win their cases on clever arguments and clever investigation strategies, Attorney Morgan was drawn to learning more about the law. He became interested in construction and personal injury after moving to Sarasota in 1998. There he began practicing with a large firm that had a worker’s compensation department and large construction law department, giving him the experience he needed in those areas.
He is dedicated to handling cases and clients in a way that makes their lives easier. His goal is to anticipate what their needs are and find alternatives for treatment or pathways to settle cases that are the most beneficial to the client, given their particular needs and circumstances.
Each case receives his attention to detail and concern to make sure everything is accomplished to obtain the best possible result. No matter the severity of your case, you can trust Attorney Morgan to fight tirelessly to protect both your rights and your best interests. He is prepared to go to court to achieve the optimum outcome for your case. He offers personalized representation, one-on-one attention, and unparalleled compassion, experience, and determination. Michael L. Morgan Law Group is a small law firm, which affords us the opportunity to provide one-on-one service, ensuring you won’t get lost in the machinery of larger firms.
Michael L. Morgan grew up in Florida and has lived in New York, Los Angeles, and Florida. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Florida and graduated from Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles for law school.
He proudly supports the cystic fibrosis foundation and the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. Michael is also an avid fisherman who enjoys boating and supporting initiatives to clean our waterways and keep Sarasota beautiful.
