Employment Defense and Counseling
Employers are under pressure to develop new approaches to both prevent employment disputes and, when they arise, to resolve them in the most effective manner possible.

Morgan assists loan servicers in various financial services transactions, including post-foreclosure matters. She litigates disputed foreclosure actions in state, federal, and bankruptcy courts.
Morgan represents insurers, and self-insured employers in insurance disputes. She additionally serves in this area as a mediator between the claimant and the insured, working to expeditiously and cost-effectively resolve claims.
Morgan’s litigation practice encompasses a wide range of business and commercial disputes, including contract breaches and unfair trade practices claims. When appropriate, she works to find creative solutions to disputes through negotiation and mediation, and if these avenues are not possible, she tenaciously represents companies at trial.
Public Housing and Landlord-Tenant Disputes

Morgan’s real estate practice is focused on representing commercial and residential clients in lease disputes, often involving property boundaries, easements, and use, as well as disputes arising from buy-sell agreements concerning real property.
