I’m very pleased with the services from Attorney James Lynch and Paralegal Heather Ellis. I would highly recommend your firm to others. When the accident happened, the first firm that I thought of was Morgan & Morgan.Mary from Orlando, FL
When this accident happened to me, you were my only choice. I knew that if I wanted to get justice, I needed someone who is aggressive and out to get what is best for the clients. Indira has been very helpful, always answering me in a timely fashion, giving me the answers to the questions I have. When she couldn't answer my questions, she set me up with Mr. Green and he answered the questions she couldn't. I am definitely satisfied with your firm.Sandra from Orlando, FL
This is the first time I have felt so positive with attorneys and their representatives. Terri Connell was stellar. My calls were returned 100 % of the time. She gave a favorable impression of your firm's name and quality; she was astute and has many resources at her fingertips. She went the extra mile even after the case was settled, in getting an insurance matter straightened out. I would recommend Morgan and Morgan to my friends and associates.Carol from Fort Myers, FL
First I would like to say I am so impressed with the type of customer service that I am presently receiving from my Attorney Scott Harrison and Ms. Erin Knopick. I appreciate that every time I call, I get answers to all of my questions and concerns. They are very good about returning my calls and advising me to the fullest. I will share my experience with Morgan and Morgan with my family, and friends. And I would definitely refer your firm to all people. I am very satisfied and happy with Attorney Scott Harrison and Erin Knopick representing my case. If I worry I call Erin Knopick and she always comforts me. She is certainly an asset to your firm; she had such a professional and pleasant way about herself. I am very impressed with Morgan and Morgan and my husband and I feel that we made the right choice in choosing your firm to represent me. Thank you all and I will never forget this time in my life and I wish you all the best.Lori from Atlanta, GA
I wanted to take a minute and thank your firm, lawyers and specifically our lawyer, Jason Leonard. From the beginning he reassured us and made us feel more comfortable. My husband does not speak English very well so having Jason was very reassuring. He told us we had a workers compensation case and we were assigned to Mike Reese. Mike was great and made us feel better (speaks a little Spanish too) and even though Jason does not do that type of law, he continued to meet with us and reassure us. We settled and the 1.75 million will not make my husband better, but now we have security for my family and my husband for the rest of his life. I cannot describe how thankful we are to you and your firm. Jason is not just our lawyer; he is like part of our family. We will always recommend Morgan and Morgan. You are for the people.Marinelli from Orlando, FL

I am 100% satisfied with everything. Thank you!Javier from Orlando, FL
My son and I drove to meet Mr. Linnehan this past Wednesday. We gave Louella a 26 lb. Butterball Tom Turkey that was still frozen solid for all of her unremitting efforts. We found Joseph to be patient, courteous and detailed in his explanation of the legal process. We felt important!Gregory from Fort Myers, FL
Matt Morgan is a great attorney and Natasha is extremely responsive. I have recommended many of my friends and clients because Matt is not just your typical attorney-- he is super nice and understanding. I will continue to use Matt for all my legal needs.Cindy from Orlando, FL
