Morgan joins family law team at Morton & Gettys

Rock Hill, SC – A passionate and committed advocate for children, Lynelle Morgan is the newest member of the family law team at Morton & Gettys. She has joined the firm as an associate.

Morgan’s practice will include a wide range of family law matters, including separation, divorce, child custody, alimony, child support, equitable distribution and adoption. She also represents clients in domestic violence matters. A volunteer guardian ad litem in York County, her legal practice also includes children’s rights and juvenile law.

Her long-standing commitment to children’s issues leads Morgan to encourage clients to put their interests first. She finds that viewing a divorce from the children’s perspective often leads parents to make better decisions. The result is a smoother legal process that can lead to a happier future and greater success as co-parents.

Morgan is a skilled communicator, taking great care to make sure clients thoroughly understand often-complex legal points. Once clients are armed with that knowledge, they become full participants in the legal process. This, too, often leads to a more successful life for both the parties and the children after the divorce.

Before entering private practice in York County, Morgan was Family Court Administrator in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. In that role, she worked closely with family court judges and staff to manage a large caseload.

Before coming to the Carolinas, Morgan’s lengthy career in Michigan included work with several legal organizations focusing on children and family law. She represented clients at every stage of the process, from initial filings on through appeals if necessary. She also helped train other attorneys in family law. Additionally, she collaborated with judges and lawyers to help set statewide family law priorities and create user-friendly systems for self-representation.

A graduate of the University of Michigan Law School, Morgan currently lives in Fort Mill.
