Orlando Magazine cites “fundraiser for Democratic Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama” by attorney John Morgan, founder of the giant Morgan & Morgan injury law firm.
Morgan has made Orlando Magazine’s 50 Most Powerful People list.
“An experienced lemon law lawyer can help you to pursue the options as they relate to your mobile home. Contact Morgan & Morgan today,” says the law firm’s website. More on that in the featured focus segment further below.

“Two People Critically Injured in Columbus Mobile Home Explosion
A mobile home explosion in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday morning sent two people to the hospital with critical injuries. Around 6:40 a.m., firefighters arrived at the Enchanted Acres mobile home park to find one of the homes engulfed in flames.

John Morgan in recent radio ads his voice is often featured in has boasted about having hosted Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, and another prominent Democratic figures, but he does so without specifically mentioning that these politicos are Democrats.
That noted, Wikipedia says that “On November 24, 2017, he [John Morgan of Morgan & Morgan] announced on Twitter that he was disillusioned with the current state of American politics and was leaving the Democratic Party to register as an independent. However, that same announcement included the mention that Morgan thought that Senator Bill Nelson (FL-D) should run for governor.
WFTV says that Morgan is backing a $15 minimum wage ballot initiative, which is a typical Democratic plank. “Since December 2017, Morgan & Morgan has donated $478,158 to the political committee Florida for a Fair Wage. As of August 2019, Morgan & Morgan had donated the bulk of the $4.15 million raised by the political committee Florida for a Fair Wage,” said Wikipedia.
Attorneys deal with manufactured homes both for and against. Some of lawyers do so in the context of lawsuits. So, why does this matter?
There are several reasons why this is instructive and relevant as the November 3 is just 3 months away. One is that Morgan & Morgan is arguably building his own anticompetitive-style moat, ala Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway moat-building methodology.
CNBC reported that “In 1999, Buffett sold his 20-year-old wallet to the highest bidder for $210,000, with all proceeds going to Girls Inc…” and the highest bidder was John Morgan. In fairness, the report didn’t specific which Morgan that was.

That’s enough backdrop to tease the balance of the profile report on John Morgan, who proudly says that he has the largest personal injury law firm in the world.

Where Business, Politics and Investing Can Meet
John Morgan’s twitter feed calls on his buddy Bill Clinton (D), the former President of the United States, to help in one of his political causes. “Let’s challenge our friends to help. I challenge @BillClinton to help us.”
LeBron, you put up $100K and I put up $100K.
Let’s challenge our friends to help. I challenge @BillClinton to help us.

“On March 31, 1956, John Morgan was born in Lexington, Kentucky. In 1971, he and his family moved to Orlando, Florida,” says Martindale.
Morgan & Morgan advertising does some heart-string pulling and other purportedly ‘clever’ ads as part of his marketing. Indeed, on December 10, 2019, the firm is listed as one of the “Masters of Plaintiff Marketing: Morgan & Morgan,” said LarryBodine.
He supports leftists and their causes, which is his right as an American. Here is what Influence Watch says about John Morgan.
“John Morgan is a Florida-based trial lawyer and a partner and founder of one of the nation’s largest law firms, Morgan and Morgan.
Morgan has donated millions of dollars to Democratic candidates and left-of-center ballot propositions including legalization of marijuana and raising the Florida minimum wage to $15 an hour.
He has been nicknamed “Pot Daddy” for his spending on marijuana initiatives…has dined with George Soros and President Barack Obama…”
Video dated December 29, 2016.
The Morgan & Morgan website says “John [Morgan] has received Martindale-Hubbell’s esteemed “AV” rating, which recognizes lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability.”
By contrast, Influence Watch lists some controversial backdrop items, which include two arrests and a sizable malpractice suit.
John Morgan has been arrested twice for allegedly driving under the influence. The first time, in 1993, Morgan pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of reckless driving. On the second occasion, in 1998, Morgan allegedly head-butted a police officer, leading to the police filing a charge of battery on a police officer. Morgan pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor as part of a deal that saw prosecutors drop the battery charge and led to him avoiding jail time. 
LEGAL MALPRACTICE SUIT
In December of 2018, Morgan’s law firm, Morgan & Morgan, lost a legal malpractice suit that led to a judgment of $5 million. The court found that Morgan & Morgan failed to represent a client adequately after her newborn had suffered permanent brain damage during delivery that also destroyed her ability to have children. After the announcement of the judgment, John Morgan declared his intention to continue to fight the verdict. 
The full extent of Morgan’s influence into the world of affordable manufactured housing is up for discussion. Those seeking a plaintiff’s attorney may want to consider the items in this report and their sources before making a decision.”
The Morgan & Morgan website also listed this: “National Finance Committee – Clinton/Gore 1996 (Florida).”
