Morgan Barfield has lived and worked in the Tampa Bay area for most of his life. He received a bachelor’s degree from Florida State University in three years and a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Florida in two and a half years. Morgan carries the same drive he relied on in graduating years ahead of schedule into his practice. He possesses first chair jury and bench trial experience in personal injury, workers compensation, and insurance litigation which provides his clients with the requisite knowledge necessary to properly evaluate a claim and try it when necessary.
Summary of Experience
While Morgan focuses his practice on insurance disputes, he has a widely diverse background which has included litigating matters relating to personal injury, motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, products liability, wrongful death, construction defects, contract disputes, commercial disputes, and workers compensation. Morgan has also had involvement in legislative agendas in Tallahassee and in appellate law with numerous appeals relating to insurance issues, including cases heard by the Florida Supreme Court.
Morgan began his practice working for insurance companies, handling all types of claims and disputes. In 2009, he began his own practice and instead of working for insurance companies, he decided to help the insureds fight their own insurance company. It is this experience that gives Morgan the unique insight of the inner workings of insurance companies and how they evaluate claims. He takes pride in the fact that this insight and experience ensures that his clients’ claims receive the proper attention and significance they deserve and stay one step ahead of the insurance companies.
Morgan is an avid sports fan and as someone who can never sit still, loves anything outdoors. Morgan also has a passion for traveling anywhere he can experience a different culture and lifestyle. Most of all, Morgan loves spending every free second with his wife Jessica and their two kids Kellen and Delaney.
