Meet Morgan McCain, Phoenix Area Attorney
Morgan McCain is an Arizona native, growing up in the Phoenix East Valley suburb of Mesa, the youngest of seven children. Morgan attended and graduated from Mesa Public Schools. After high school Morgan served a two-year church mission in the Washington D.C. area. For the first time in his life, Morgan discovered what a “dry heat” really was and how the wind chill factor can make winter seem like it will last forever.
Soon after returning home from his mission service, Morgan moved to Salt Lake City, Utah to begin college. It was during this time that he met his future wife, Hana Scott. After obtaining an associate degree, Morgan convinced his bride-to-be that he had been away from warm Arizona winters for far too long; and convinced Hana to go to Arizona with him.
Morgan attended Arizona State University where he completed his undergraduate studies. After obtaining bachelor’s degrees in both Political Science and History, Morgan and Hana moved to Oklahoma where he attended law school at the University of Tulsa. They spent nearly four years in Tulsa and thoroughly enjoyed “Green Country.” In addition to obtaining his Juris Doctor degree, Morgan also obtained a master’s degree in history from the University of Tulsa.
While in law school Morgan spent one semester as a student clinician at the Boesche Legal Clinic, assisting members of the Tulsa community in estate planning and probate matters. It was during this experience that Morgan realized how much really enjoyed meeting with clients and determining how to best meet their needs.
After law school, while awaiting his bar passage, Morgan worked as a law clerk for a preeminent East Valley law Firm specializing in estate planning, specifically assisting in the drafting of wills and estate plans.
After being admitted to the State Bar of Arizona, Morgan began working as an Associate Attorney for the Legal Services Office of a local Native American tribal government. In this position Morgan continued to work in estate planning assisting Tribal Members with their wills and general estate plans, as well as probate matters under the newly enacted American Indian Probate Reform Act (AIPRA). In addition, Morgan also worked with Tribal members regarding Guardianship, Conservatorship and civil litigation matters dealing with landlord/tenant issues and contract issues.
Morgan has also worked in a variety of consumer law positions. Beginning in 2009 Morgan began working and assisting individuals in filing for bankruptcy and other consumer law issues, including defending lawsuits. Morgan has worked for some preeminent valley law firms specializing in bankruptcy. Morgan obtained extensive experience in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, helping thousands of clients find much needed relief.
Morgan continues to reside in Mesa and when not working, he enjoys spending time with his lovely wife, three daughters and son. They enjoy traveling and spending time with family in California, Wyoming, Utah and Idaho. Morgan is also an avid reader and staunch supporter of ASU athletics. GO Devils!
