Wendy R. Morgan is the founder and owner of The Law Firm of Wendy R. Morgan. Wendy has been practicing law since 1981 and has been concentrating in Family Law since 1986.

Wendy is also known for her understanding and compassion for her clients and the ability to know what they need and how to successfully strategize to accomplish their goals.

Even before graduating from law school, Wendy second chaired several felony criminal trials with esteemed criminal attorney, Sam Adler. While still in Law School, Wendy gained significant insight into the domestic relations division and family law when she was chosen by the late Honorable Judge Willard Lasser in the Circuit Court of Cook County to act as his legal intern. Wendy's passion for divorce and family law arose from this internship.

In addition to extensive trial work in the Circuit Courts, Wendy has also successfully practiced in Federal Court and has gained experience and skills as an appellate attorney. Wendy has also successfully appeared for oral argument before the Appellate Court on several occasions. She was qualified and admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court in 2003.

Wendy has served as a lecturer for both legal and non-legal organizations in the State of Illinois, Nationally and Internationally. Wendy has written several articles on custody, paternity and other areas of family law. She has frequently has appeared on both cable television and radio on panels and discussions on family law topics. Many of her trials have been published in Divorce Digest.

Wendy is one of few attorneys in this area who has extensive experience in the area of interstate and international child custody disputes. Wendy has been admitted to numerous states to practice "pro hac vice" with respect to interstate custody disputes and has successfully prevailed. Wendy also has gained extensive experience handling international custody disputes. She has recently worked with state police, the FBI and international law enforcement entities and has successfully recovered children who have been kidnapped and removed from the United States to Mexico.
