F. Dean Morgan, Esquire
Dean is the owner and Managing Attorney of the Morgan Law Firm. Dean was born in a poverty-stricken rural farming community. Dean’s father, an owner-operator truck driver, taught Dean the value of independence, self-reliance, and hard work. Dean’s first “job” was cleaning all of the tools in his father’s shop for 25 cents. His allowance was earned working on the family’s small 3-acre farm taking care of animals, driving a tractor, and ensuring that irrigation ditches remained open. Dean is the first male in his family’s history to graduate from high school.
Dean began his career in law enforcement at the age of 19. Despite his youth, Dean was sworn in as member of a 30+ officer Hanford Police Department in Hanford, California. Dean served in local and federal law enforcement positions in California and Virginia. He received advanced training from several government agencies including the FBI, State Police, and others in the area of DUI and Drug Interdiction.
After a career in law enforcement, Dean returned to his educational pursuits. Dean became the first person in his family’s history to graduate from college. Dean worked full-time while attending college and part-time during law school.
Dean began his legal career with the Appellate Division of the Cumberland County District Attorney’s Office. Dean was responsible for drafting the Commonwealth’s briefs in a number of criminal cases. Dean’s Appellate experience allowed him to transition to the Appellate Division of the Las Vegas, Nevada District Attorney’s Office. While there, Dean was primarily responsible for Death Penalty appeals. In addition, he worked on a number of high profile homicide cases in conjunction with the Major Crimes Unit.
Dean returned to Pennsylvania as a member of the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office. While there, he prosecuted DUI, Misdemeanor, Felony, and Juvenile cases. He subsequently joined a small law firm in York, Pennsylvania. While there, he handled personal injury, workers’ compensation, criminal defense, and general litigation matters.
Dean is a well-respected member of the legal community. He is consistently asked to mediate and negotiate resolutions to complex issues.
In 2010, Dean opened The Law Office of F. Dean Morgan. Dean opened his practice because he believed that clients deserved to be treated as friends, not merely customers or file numbers. It is for this reason that our firm does not use file numbers.
In 2012, the name of the firm changed to “The Morgan Law Firm” to recognize the accomplishments of the attorneys and the staff of the firm.
Under Dean’s leadership, The Morgan Law Firm is committed to representing our clients with the core values of Honesty, Integrity, and Commitment.
