Morgan joined the Donovan Oates Hannaford team in February 2022. After graduating from the University of New England with a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Criminology, Morgan moved to Port Macquarie. We were lucky enough to have her join the team soon after, starting as a paralegal.

Having grown up in Nambucca Heads, she’s very familiar with the area with nearby friends and family.

Morgan has a range of work placement experience working at regional law firms throughout her degree. She is experienced in advocating for law students across Australia at various conferences and was the President and Vice President of UNE Law Students’ Society from 2019 to 2021.
