Billings based firm Stacey & Funyak is proud to welcome Morgan M. Sorena to the firm as a litigation associate where she will continue her career focusing on the trial practice of civil litigated matters on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. Morgan has represented a wide range of clients including disputes involving personal injury, products liability, insurance disputes, employment related matters, securities litigation, construction defect claims, medical malpractice, and class actions.
After graduating from Billings West High School, Morgan graduated from the University of San Diego cum laude in 2013 with a degree in International Relations and International Business. She then graduated from the University of Notre Dame Law School cum laude in May of 2016 where she was selected to the Journal of Law Ethics and Public Policy and became a published author as well as being selected to serve on the Moot Court Team for the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals where she wrote, filed and argued a matter before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. While in law school, Morgan interned for the Honorable Judge Roger Benitez for the Southern District of California as well as the California Attorney General’s Office.
After graduation, Morgan returned to San Diego where she passed the California Bar and worked at the law firm of Neil Dymott handling primarily medical malpractice litigation. She then accepted a job with the international law firm of Duane Morris LLP working in their litigation department in San Diego. Knowing that she would return to Montana to practice law in 2018, Morgan passed the Montana Bar and eventually left San Diego and began practicing law in Connecticut and New York. Before moving back to Montana, Morgan was an associate at Klafter Olsen & Lesser LLP, a plaintiff’s firm handling significant class action and personal injury litigation throughout the United States including working on the class action filed as a result of the Flint, Michigan water crisis which recently was publicly reported as involving a $600 million settlement with the State of Michigan.
Morgan’s husband, Matthew, is a music therapist and they along with their dogs, Moose and Mud are very happy to be back in Montana.
