For attorney Morgan Whitlock, personal injury isn’t just a job. It’s a passion.
The founding lawyer of Whitlock Law, LLC, in Silver Spring, Maryland, has gained national attention for her dedication to making a difference. She was recently featured in a Forbes article showcasing her determination and persistence in the personal injury field.
The article highlights how attorney Whitlock consistently goes above and beyond to address the needs of her clients. For example, she routinely goes to bat to get clients the full medical care and coverage they need, even helping them find competent medical providers in specialty fields. She sees herself as not just their legal adviser but their advocate as well — an ally with them in their fight for justice.
Holding insurance companies accountable
A consistent theme in attorney Whitlock’s practice is addressing the failure of insurance companies to treat policyholders fairly. Insurers often don’t come through for injury victims at the very times they’re needed the most. Without a strong attorney to intervene on their behalf, clients are left to struggle with delays, underpayments and even wrongful denials. Those are difficult blows to endure during what is often already one of the worst periods in a client’s life after a serious accident, injury or loss.
Attorney Whitlock makes it her mission to fight for fairness on behalf of clients. She takes on the headaches and hassle of dealing with insurance companies so each client can focus on their biggest priorities during the difficult aftermath of an accident: healing and recovery.
Willing to go to battle for clients in court
Driven by a commitment to justice, attorney Whitlock is not afraid to take cases to trial when warranted. She frequently contends with powerful opponents, such as insurance companies, trucking companies, corporations and government entities. Even when cases settle out of court, it is often trial preparation that lays the groundwork for a successful outcome.
Attorney Whitlock’s hard work and determination have produced a strong record of notable verdicts and settlements totaling well into the millions of dollars — and counting.
A firm believer in equal access to justice for all
One of the foundations of attorney Whitlock’s practice is the belief that everyone should have access to justice, regardless of socioeconomic status. Contingency fee services allow her to provide quality representation to clients who couldn’t otherwise afford an attorney.
Attorney Whitlock’s commitment to justice is also reflected in her service to the community. She has devoted hundreds of hours to pro bono cases and volunteered her legal services for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
A small but tough firm
Attorney Whitlock makes client service a priority. As a small firm, Whitlock Law, LLC, is able to provide the one-on-one client attention that is so important in serious injury and wrongful death cases. Open lines of communication are the norm in every case. Attorney Whitlock wants clients to feel comfortable contacting her directly with questions or concerns.
While offering all the advantages of a small law practice, attorney Whitlock also has the skill and determination to take on tough cases in both Maryland and Virginia; she’s licensed in both states. She is no stranger to high-stakes litigation in serious injury matters involving traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, back and neck injuries, and wrongful death. She enlists trusted experts as needed to build strong cases for clients.
