Andrew M. Morgan is a Partner in the Bakersfield office of Borton Petrini, LLP. Andrew attended the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, obtaining his Juris Doctorate degree and admittance to the California Bar in 2009.

While in law school, Andrew received the College of Law Award for Outstanding Achievement in legal research and writing and was named a William H. Leary scholar for academic excellence. He also served as Articles Editor on the Executive Board of the Journal of Land, Resources & Environmental Law.

As a Bakersfield attorney, Andrew practices general business litigation and has significant experience prosecuting and defending contract, partnership, and land-use disputes. He also defends builders and subcontractors in complex construction defect litigation and represented plaintiffs in a complex civil mass toxic tort case. He has also represented plaintiffs in wrongful termination and sexual harassment cases and defended employers at DFEH hearings and in court against employees’ wage and hour claims.

Andrew also has significant appellate experience as a Bakersfield attorney, and he obtained a published opinion from the California Court of Appeal that resulted in a change in the law that significantly advanced the rights of residential homebuilders when sued by homeowners. That case is now pending before the California Supreme Court.

In addition to his litigation and appellate practices, Andrew also has
experience negotiating contracts with both private and governmental entities and some agriculture land transactions.

Andrew also advises California politicians and government contractors on conflict of interest issues under the California Political Reform Act and Government Code Section 1090.

Andrew strives to be proactive and creative in addressing his clients’ problems in a way that is both cost-effective through efficiency and successfully accomplishes the clients’ goals.

Andrew is married to Emilee Morgan. They have three sons who keep them both very busy.
