Dennis Richard Morgan, Lawyer at Pennsylvania State University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Law.
Mr. Morgan joined the profession of law because he loves working with people, and has found the work very exciting, with different cases and situations as well as a freedom other professions do not have. He has loved his work, and was named a 1965 Robert E. Lee Research Scholar early on, earning a 1967 American Jurisprudence Award two years later. Of his many roles, he has notably been in private practice attorney from 1978 to 1992, an assistant city attorney of Columbus, Ohio for two years, and assistant attorney general of the state of Ohio from 1991 to 2003. Mr. Morgan is a recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, and was chosen for the pages of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Law, Who’s Who in the Midwest, and Who’s Who in the World.
Born to Benjamin Richard Morgan and Gladys Belle Morgan in 1942, Mr. Morgan is an alumnus of Washington and Lee University, and earned a JD from the University of Virginia in 1967. He served with the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1970 to the rank of captain, and returned to complete a LLM in labor law from New York University one year later. He entered the law as a clerk to the Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, and notably served as director of labor relations for the Ohio Department of Administrative Services for three years. Dr. Morgan has also been a prolific educator, teaching as a guest lecturer with Central Michigan University, Baldwin-Wallace College, and numerous events in the field.
In coming years, Mr. Morgan intends to continue with the work he has loved for decades. Outside of his law offices, he has supported numerous civic groups, and was co-founder and named trustee of the Greater West Side Democratic Club in 1974. He chaired the rules committee of the Ohio State Democratic Convention that year, and offered his services as negotiator to the Franklin County United Way from 1977 to 1981. Mr. Morgan is a member of the Federal Bar Association and the honor society Pi Sigma Alpha.
