Morgan Wood Bembry
Morgan began her legal career at an intellectual property litigation boutique in Atlanta, where she quickly realized her interest in working with business owners and personnel to guide them through the legal issues that arise in their everyday interactions. She joined her father, Bill, in his practice in early 2013 to gain the benefit of his years of experience and build her knowledge of business and transactional law. Her intellectual property experience proved to be a valuable addition to the practice, allowing Wood & Bembry to add trademark and copyright protection work to the core business services the firm offers to its clients.
Since 2013, Morgan has also developed an estate planning and administration practice. This particular area of law drew her attention before her career even began as it gave her the opportunity to use her skills to help people on a very personal level. She works with clients young and old to develop their first estate plans or interpret and rework wills or trusts that they have had in place for years. The insights she gains through interactions with clients help her tailor their documents to address their particular concerns. She also assists survivors who are navigating the probate process or administering a trust for a loved one, doing what she can to make a difficult time as easy as possible.
She has been recognized six times on the Georgia Rising Stars list from Super Lawyers.
Morgan received her J.D. from the University of Georgia School of Law, where she graduated cum laude in 2011 and served as managing editor of the Georgia Law Review. During law school, Morgan interned with the Athens-Clarke County Probate Court and with the Georgia Governor’s Office of Consumer Affairs.
Prior to law school, Morgan worked in marketing and communications for a large Atlanta law firm. She earned her A.B.J., cum laude, from the University of Georgia, majoring in public relations.
Morgan is a Gwinnett County native and product of the Gwinnett County Public Schools – Centerville, Annistown, and Shiloh Elementary, Shiloh Middle, and Brookwood High. She now lives in Decatur with her husband, William, and their dog, Mae. Morgan is a past president of the GAWL Foundation, the non-profit organization created by the Georgia Association for Women Lawyers with the mission of encouraging philanthropy by women lawyers in Georgia for the benefit of the greater community. She is also a member of the Delta Gamma Atlanta Alumnae Chapter and an adviser for the Delta Iota chapter at the University of Georgia.
