Get the John Morgan perspective on life, family, business, and the law. Get to know the man you’ve been watching on your TV screens for decades. The hard-won wisdom, the incredible stories, and the lessons learned from life at the center of American business, law, and social activism.
I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to help people in many different ways over the years, Here are some of the recent projects and causes I and the Morgan & Morgan family have or are currently focusing on.
Tim is my older brother, and when he was 18 he suffered a terrible injury while working as a lifeguard for Walt Disney World. Instead of taking care of Tim, Disney decided to deny him the help and compensation he needed.
We were not a rich family, and the legal system chewed Tim up. We now know that we chose the wrong lawyer, but at the time we didn’t know better. And Disney got away with it.
Tim’s tragedy became my life’s work. I became enraged and used that fuel to build the largest personal injury firm in the history of the world.
I have never spent a single moment in my entire legal career doing anything other than fighting for individuals, families, and communities who aren’t being given a fair shake, and I have never charged a penny upfront for it.
I see Tim in every single person who walks through our doors, and I’ll be fighting for them all until the day I die.
The written law is just the beginning of the fight for justice. It also requires the dedication and professionalism of those who practice and teach it, and kindness and empathy to those in need.
I’m proud to be a member of legal organizations that help raise the quality of legal representation across the board, and that help make quality legal services accessible to all.
While my life and career has been the greatest education a man could ask for, I owe my start in life to the wonderful schools that helped shape me in my younger years
After graduating from my Florida high school, I was privileged to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville where I became a member of Alpha Tau Omega and then president of Florida Blue Key. After graduation, I attended the University of Florida College of Law, completing my legal education in 1983.
I got started fighting for the elderly and their families in nursing home abuse cases, and since then I’ve had the great pleasure of being able to fight for people across a wide variety of different kinds of cases.
From medical malpractice to slip and falls, I’ve been blessed to be able help more people than I could have ever imagined. It’s been the honor of a lifetime.
It wasn’t a wealthy home, but it was a happy home. My journey to the man I am today started here, and I’ll always be grateful for that.
