Meet The Speakers
Frank Morgan was an experienced and skilled trial and appellate lawyer when he joined us in April 2007. By the time he got to us, Frank had litigated cases in State and Federal courts from Maryland to Mississippi (not to mention the United States Supreme Court). Frank thought he could control the tone and content of this biography. Sorry, Frank. He’d like to tell you that his experience covers civil litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution in matters involving trademarks, copyrights, contracts, employment, business torts, domain name disputes and the Internet, as well as, entertainment and sports law; and that he represents entertainers (including a Grammy nominee) and world class professional athletes. We’d point out he’s old school. He wears a tie every single day. He might loosen that collar as the day wears on, but the tie stays.
He’s a perennial Best Lawyer and Super Lawyer for entertainment, music, movies and television, as well as sports law, copyright and trademark. And most recently, Frank was named by Best Lawyers as Lawyer of the Year for Entertainment Law – Music. Music to our ears.

We highly encourage you to take public transportation. The Woodberry Light Rail Stop is just 2 blocks away. You can find a train schedule here.
If you are driving, there is limited parking available in the lot at Union Mill. We suggest street parking on Union Avenue or Buena Vista. You can find Union Mill on a Google Map here. Please note that since Google Maps photographed the area, an additional parking lot has been added, with an entrance off Buena Vista.
Once you arrive, please look for the “Union Mill Offices” located in the back of the complex. There will be signs and arrows placed to help you find your way. Look for the balloons marking the entrance. Once you arrive, you will be greeted at a registration table.
We will also have a table setup for people to exchange materials. Please bring business cards, postcards, small brochures, etc., for others to take and learn more about what you do. There will also be networking opportunities throughout the day.
