Morgan has practiced family law almost exclusively during her career. She is passionate about helping clients through what can be the most difficult time in their lives by offering them both compassion and confidence. She has experience practicing all over the “805” and beyond. She was a full-time reporter for the Santa Barbara News-Press when she decided to enroll in law school and attend classes at night. Her background in journalism has given her a unique skill set toward understanding and telling her clients’ stories in a way that is both impactful and productive. While in law school, she interned in the criminal courtroom of Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Brian Hill, an experience that was meaningful but helped her to know with certainty that she belongs in the family law world.
