Shasta County’s most experienced trial firm

Since the firm’s inception, overyears ago, the partners of Morgan and Kelley have accumulated an impressive record of successful trials — whether it’s representing individuals who are victims of wrongful or negligent acts of others in Plaintiff personal injury cases, or defending various public entities that are being sued. Yes, they have done and do both — in fact they used to do nothing but defend insurance companies and their insured’s, but for the last several years primarily represent plaintiffs as well as public entities.

A Well Rounded Law Firm


Morgan and Kelley
feel that doing both plaintiff and defense cases gives their firm a better and more objective viewpoint with which to evaluate their clients’ cases in the beginning, and to work out potential settlement or trial strategies if the case doesn’t settle. They know how their opposition works because they’ve been there!

Morgan and Kelley are committed to getting their clients the best recovery possible, which is why this firm doesn’t hesitate to take a case to trial if the other side doesn’t offer a proper settlement.

Ground Breaking Cases

The firm has a stellar reputation for winning at trial and, in fact, has broken many previously un breached barriers in the process. For instance, in the published case of Vallier vs. Plett, M.D., the jury awarded $862,000, plus interest, for the FIRST-ever plaintiff medical malpractice verdict in Tehama County.

A few years later, they again breached that same barrier in Siskiyou County, where they prevailed and received the FIRST-ever plaintiff medical malpractice verdict in Siskiyou County. Ashe vs. Hamilton, M.D., resulted in a verdict of $102,700, plus interest. In Shasta County, they have also received one of the very few plaintiff medical malpractice awards in the published case of Ashmun vs. Livolsi, M.D.

The firm has prevailed against K Mart Corporation with a verdict over $1,158,000, plus interest [Craddock v. K Mart Corporation]. Not long before that, Eversole vs. Twyman, resulted in a verdict of $1,750,000 plus interest, which was upheld by the California Court of Appeals. That judgment, plus interest and costs totaled $2,192,133.
