John Morgan

Attorney in Orlando, FL

On March 31, 1956, John Morgan was born in Lexington, Kentucky. In 1971, he and his family moved to Orlando, Florida, where John attended high school. After graduating, John enrolled in the University of Florida and became a member of Alpha Tau Omega. In 1982, he became president of Florida Blue Key. John graduated from the University of Florida College of Law in 1983.

By 1988, John had founded Morgan & Morgan under the belief that the firm would represent the people, not the powerful. To this day, John has run the firm by that code, promising never to take a case representing an insurance carrier or large company. Through John's guidance, leadership and vision, the firm has founded multiple locations throughout Florida, including Orlando, Tampa, Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale, Winter Haven, Daytona, Kissimmee, Saint Petersburg, Naples, Tavares, Jacksonville and Tallahassee. The firm has also expanded nationally, opening offices in Atlanta, Georgia; Jackson, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; New York, New York; Lexington, Kentucky; and Warren, New Jersey.

Morgan & Morgan employs 240 staff attorneys and over 1,400 support staff members. Twenty-five years after the firm's inception, "for the people" continues to be a way of life for John Morgan and the firm. John has lectured across the country on the practice of law. He has been an active member of the Florida Academy of Trial Lawyers and served as a FLAG trustee, making a push for Florida state law that would protect families from corporations and insurance companies. John is currently on the board of trustees for the University of Florida's Levin College of Law.

John has received Martindale-Hubbell's esteemed "AV" rating, which recognizes lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability. Based on the recommendations of his peers, John's "AV" rating serves a testament to the fact fellow attorneys consider him at the highest level of professional excellence. Only a select group of attorneys are ever awarded with this premier distinction.

In 2011, John reached another career milestone when he proudly released his first book titled "You Can't Teach Hungry. Creating the Multimillion Dollar Law Firm," on which he frequently lectures. The book offers insight into John's success, philosophy and business methods, and provides the groundwork for a sustainable and enduring practice. Lawyers from across the country have read the book and continue to reach out to John for further guidance and advice.

John and his wife, Ultima, proudly support the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, whose principle goal is to end the "invisible problem" of hunger throughout the state. In 2013, John and Ultima made a generous donation that helped the organization fund and open the Morgan & Morgan, P.A. Hunger Relief Center. The 100,000-square foot facility-more than double the size of its predecessor-is equipped with ample freezers, coolers, and infrastructure space to store the millions of pounds of food collected by Second Harvest each year.

In 2013, John announced his support of the campaign to legalize medical marijuana in Florida for use by the state's seriously ill. According to John, the deeply personal cause is a step to not only provide safer pain relief and treatment methods for those with legitimate diseases, but also to help end the rampant problem of prescription drug abuse in Florida. In addition to his financial contributions, John has been the public face of the effort, openly recruiting volunteers to collect the thousands of signatures needed to place the initiative on Florida's November 2014 general election ballot.

With all of his success, John's personal accomplishment of raising four children with Ultima, his wife of 30 years, remains dearest to his heart.

the lawyer I was assigned to claimed not know a new law had been passed a few months prior to my injury and did not inform me until it was to late so I would have had to pay him money I did not have to pay with; to interested in the female lawyer on the opposing side; if she was pregnant or not. He wanted to try my case as he had never had a slip and fall before; he kept telling her information about my case then tell me he was talking about a different case knowing I overheard the them both.

I actually used the Firm of Morgan & Morgan on a PIP case with my automobile insurance. I was involved in an accident in which I was a passenger in my own car and my insurance did not want to pay for my injuries claiming that my injuries were "pre-existing". Morgan & Morgan attorneys came through and got the Insurance Company to pay all medical bills associated with the accident at no cost to me.

He was very professional and handled my case with my interest as a # 1 priority. Also he was very thorough and efficient. He took care of my case as quickly as possible and got me the top amount that was possible to get for the problem. He was also available to me at any time I had questions or did not understand something. I would say that I could not have gotten a better man for the job. I am very thankful to Mr. Morgan.
