How Many Lawyers Work at Morgan & Morgan?
With offices located throughout the country and repeated appearances in the news highlighting our impressive verdicts and settlements, you might be wondering “how many lawyers work for Morgan & Morgan?” It might surprise you to know that Morgan & Morgan started out back in 1988 with only two attorneys in an Orlando office.
Due to our success in high value negotiations and litigation, Morgan & Morgan has grown to more than 1,000 lawyers nationwide. Despite our size today, we have maintained our same family-style approach to dealing with clients and always seeing the individual behind the claim.
While many companies can experience a temporary spike in growth fueled by short term success, Morgan & Morgan has consistently grown over the last 35 years. We have remained true to our core mission of protecting people’s rights and never compromising on our standards. Becoming a larger law firm with increased resources and capabilities is a good thing, but not if it comes at the expense of our client’s experience. Otherwise, we are no better than the insurance companies who see people as just another number on a spreadsheet.
How Important Is Size When It Comes to a Law Firm?
In personal injury cases, you are going up against massive national insurance companies. These companies are for profit and they exist for that reason alone, despite what their marketing department might try to tell you. They have multiple departments dedicated to reducing or denying claims because whatever they don’t have to pay out turns into their profit. From appraisers who are trained to befriend you to get any information they can to reduce your claim, to their army of high powered attorneys, you will be facing an uphill battle.
If they sense weakness or that you are short on time, they can leverage this against you and try to get you to accept a lowball offer. You don’t have to settle for this. Level the playing field and get the support of a firm that has over 800 attorneys who are experienced at dealing with the insurance companies and ready to fight for you.
