Join us as we explore our practice areas and show how our legal professionals can guide you through your legal matters effectively.

Car Accidents

Our attorneys have recovered millions of dollars for those whom insurance companies may otherwise have taken advantage of. We have a reputation for turning insufficient pre-trial offers into large jury verdicts for victims of car, truck, motorcycle, boat and other motor vehicle accidents. 

Our lawyers have decades of experience helping injured drivers and passengers navigate every step of the post-accident process, fighting to protect them from some of America’s biggest bullies, insurance companies. We are able to bring the full weight of the firm against those big corporations to secure damages for the clients that have sometimes suffered life-changing harm.

Premises Liability

Property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe. An unaddressed spill, faulty railing, or another hazard can lead to a Slip & Fall accident. The victims of these accidents are left to deal not only with physical and emotional pain but also medical bills and other expenses.

Our attorneys fight to protect the rights of Slip & Fall victims as well as victims of robbery, assault and other acts due to negligent security or poor safety measures. When property owners fail to maintain safe premises, our attorneys fight to hold them accountable.

Negligent Security

Property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe. An unaddressed spill, faulty railing, or another hazard can lead to a Slip & Fall accident. The victims of these accidents are left to deal not only with physical and emotional pain but also medical bills and other expenses.

Wrongful Death

No matter the cause, losing a loved one is devastating. But when a death is the result of negligence, it adds more weight to an already traumatic circumstance. Our attorneys help survivors pursue compensation to cover the considerable financial difficulties — as well as pain and suffering — that may arise as a result of a loved one’s passing.

Nothing can replace a lost loved one, but our attorneys can assist survivors in getting the damages they deserve.

Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is designed to help employees who have been injured on the job receive income quickly. In exchange, workers’ compensation limits the liability of the employer and coworkers. This system doesn’t always work as it should. Sometimes claims are unjustly denied or underpaid and injured employees must appeal the decision and wait months to get the money they’re entitled to and desperately need.

Our workers’ compensation attorneys help those facing these hurdles navigate the various steps in the often frustrating workers’ compensation process.

Product Liability

People buy products with the expectation that they’re safe and will work as advertised. Sometimes, however, consumers buy products that, at best, don’t do what they’re supposed to, and, at worst, lead to injury or even death.

Our product liability lawyers handle cases in which manufacturing defects, design defects or improper warning labels lead to injury. If the defect in question is pervasive and affects many consumers in a similar way, we are prepared to launch a mass tort to compensate the product’s victims and hold the negligent manufacturer accountable.

Fire Injuries

Some of the worst injuries out there — the ones that cause irreparable harm and change lives in unimaginable ways — are burn and fire injuries. Our attorneys have a proven track record of winning compensation for victims of life-shattering accidents stemming from house fires, chemical fires, workplace accidents, electrical fires and other types of burns. We aggressively advocate for clients who have faced massive medical bills, permanently altered life situations and profound pain and suffering due to the negligence of others.

Medical Malpractice

When medical professionals don’t provide acceptable treatment, our attorneys are here to help the victims. Medical malpractice can include, but is not limited to: making the wrong diagnosis, administering the wrong drug, conducting the wrong surgery and even leaving surgical equipment in a patient’s body during surgery.

Nursing Home Abuse

When someone entrusts the care of a loved one to a nursing home, they expect quality care from a knowledgeable staff in safe conditions. Unfortunately, some nursing homes value their bottom line over quality of care, which can result in staff neglecting and abusing patients. This primarily happens when facilities are understaffed or hire workers who are not qualified or properly trained to care for the elderly.
Our experienced nursing home abuse attorneys work to help the victims of abuse and neglect secure justice.

We fight for compensation for the pain and suffering sustained and hold the nursing home and retirement facility accountable.

Class Actions, Mass Torts & Arbitration

Morgan & Morgan attorneys have decades of experience in resolving large, complex disputes such as class actions and mass torts and arbitration. We are efficient and effective at handling the complexities and substantial administrative details that are the hallmark of extensive, complicated actions. These cases frequently include hundreds of parties, large groups of lawyers, multiple jurisdictions and hundreds of millions of dollars.

Morgan & Morgan has led the way on many impactful class action lawsuits and mass torts. Notably, spearheaded by award-winning attorney John Yanchunis, the firm filed the largest-ever class action lawsuit against Yahoo over a series of data breaches that leaked the personal information of all three billion of the company’s users. Additionally, our mass tort attorneys are working to protect the rights of servicemen and women who were victimized by 3M’s defective Combat Arms Earplugs (Version 2 - CAEv2). We are also handling cases involving social media harm in minors (META), weight loss drugs (Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro and others)


Mesothelioma is a fatal cancer caused by asbestos exposure. It’s often seen in people who’ve worked in the railroad, shipbuilding, or other manufacturing industries — as well as those who have served in the military. Generally, mesothelioma occurs when a company or organization knew asbestos was dangerous, but allowed its use in electrical wires, pipes and other equipment anyway.

Our lawyers help victims and their families hold these wrongdoers accountable. The long latency period of mesothelioma development presents a significant challenge for our attorneys, who must identify when and where someone was exposed to asbestos, even though it likely happened decades ago. Despite this challenge, our legal team has been able to help many mesothelioma victims and their families recover compensation for the injustice perpetrated against them.

Government Action & Whistleblower Claims

Morgan & Morgan’s Government Action division works with local and state governments to combat fraud, pollution, business misconduct and other issues that affect entire locales. Since government entities don’t typically have the capability to take on private companies and their veteran legal teams, we put our plentiful resources and decades of experience to work on their behalf. We fight to recover full compensation and restore the community.

Billions of taxpayer dollars are lost to fraud every year, but the False Claims Act allows private citizens to file civil lawsuits on behalf of the government against entities defrauding government programs — and receive a portion of the funds the government recovers. Our whistleblower team works to ensure that those who come forward are able to right the wrongs they’ve witnessed and recover compensation for their bravery. The best part? We operate on a contingency fee, so there’s never any cost or risk to taxpayers.

Headed by attorney James D. Young, our Government Action and Whistleblower team includes former FBI Special Agents, Assistant United States Attorneys, and even former attorneys general. This team has a robust history of successful cases under its belt, from filing opioid lawsuits on behalf of 17 governments in West Virginia to representing dozens of Florida cities, counties and school boards after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Everything we do is backed by a wide variety of experience, and we’re ready to take on the next case no matter how great the challenge.

Labor & Employment

Our Employment Rights Group helps employees who face wage theft, employer retaliation, denial of leave, wrongful termination, workplace bias, harassment, labor accidents and other issues that arise in the workplace. Our attorneys and support staff advocate for clients in cases involving a slew of federal, state and local employment laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Our team has recovered millions of dollars for our clients, helping provide some measure of relief in the face of difficult circumstances.

Business Litigation

Business disputes are common, but not all businesses and individuals can afford the high hourly rates that traditional commercial law firms charge. By working on a contingency-fee basis, our Business Trial Group provides businesses with affordable, high-quality legal representation.

Claims involving contracts, construction, real estate, securities fraud, intellectual property and other disputes are no-risk, high-reward for our clients.

Civil Rights

Fighting against the abuse of power is a core tenet of our Civil Rights Group. All people have the right to freedom from excessive force, unreasonable searches and seizures and cruel and unusual punishment.
Our attorneys represent victims of police brutality and wrongful imprisonment, including the victims of police shootings. Additionally, we represent prison inmates who have been physically and sexually abused or assaulted by staff. Our Civil Rights Group also handles cases involving the loved ones of prisoners who have committed suicide, and those injured or killed when their medical needs were neglected.

Social Security Disability

For people who become disabled and can no longer work, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits can be an important source of income. However, the majority of people who apply for SSDI benefits are initially denied, which is often a disheartening and potentially frightening experience.

Our attorneys fight for those who need SSDI benefits receive the compensation they’re entitled to. Additionally, our law firm helps parents of disabled adult children receive benefits for the care of their child and helps disabled widows and widowers receive benefits that can make their lives easier.

Veterans’ Benefits

Military veterans who put their lives on the line for our country are eligible for disability benefits if they sustained an injury during their service that lingers past their discharge. However, many veterans’ disability claims are initially denied.

Our veterans’ benefits attorneys help veterans navigate the application and appeals process so they can receive the benefits they deserve. In addition to disability, our attorneys help veterans and their families receive survivor benefits, vocational rehabilitation, employment benefits, educational benefits, life insurance, healthcare, home loans, and pension benefits.
