Morgan Bonney is a civil litigator who primarily practices on professional liability matters involving lawyers, accountants, insurance agents, real estate brokers, and other professional clients.
Prior to joining Thompson Coe, Morgan practiced as a civil litigator representing clients in a variety of matters, from business litigation and insurance defense to post-judgment collections and creditors’ rights. Her previous experience in all phases of litigation has shaped her into an aggressive litigator, and having represented both plaintiffs and defendants gives her a competitive advantage in strategizing and anticipating what an opposing side may do.
Morgan strives to take a personable and empathetic approach with her clients, as well as to keep her clients fully informed and advised during all stages of litigation.
