Santa Cruz Real Estate, Business and Estate Planning Attorney

From our law offices in Santa Cruz, the law firm of Timothy J. Morgan, Attorney at Law, has represented individuals, businesses and political organizations for more than 30 years. We use diplomacy, sound judgment and effective advocacy to meet our clients' legal needs. Some people believe that they cannot get quality representation unless they go to a large, expensive firm. We believe that neither the size nor price of your attorney is what makes a difference. Our lawyers possess the experience, skill and professionalism that lead to success and satisfaction.

Many areas of law have considerations that are related to their geography. For example, real estate law on the California coast might be very different than in Bakersfield or Los Angeles. In addition to these regional details, it is important that an attorney is experienced with the courts or other decision-makers who will be involved in resolving your legal issue. Over the last three decades, our lawyers have seen major growth and change within the counties we practice in, including Santa Cruz, Monterey, Santa Clara and San Benito. We have continuously worked within these legal systems and understand what you can expect.
