I am very satisfied with Morgan & Morgan’s services. Anna Mills returned my calls & answered my questions. Thank you!Bobbi from Daytona Beach, FL
I wanted to take the time to extend my appreciation for the services of your para legal, Sue Gleisner. Her response time to my questions, whether telephone calls or e-mails, has been nothing short of exemplary. She was never short with her answers and spent considerable time in answering my questions, never condescending, but always altruistic. In essence, she treated me not just as a human being but as a “somebody”, an esteemed member of the family. Sue is truly an example of your firm’s slogan “For the People”. Thank you!John from Tampa, FL
