FORT MYERS, Fla. (Aug 15, 2021) — The Uncommon Friends Foundation is proud to announce the annual Uncommon Evening Gala will feature John Morgan from the law firm Morgan & Morgan as the distinguished featured speaker. This year’s event, “Be Uncommon!” will be on Nov. 10 at historic Burrough’s Home & Gardens.

In 1988, John Morgan founded Morgan & Morgan after graduating from the University of Florida College of Law. Under John’s leadership, Morgan & Morgan has expanded to more than 750 attorneys across 17 states in over 50 areas of practice including national mass torts and class actions, labor and employment, civil rights, personal injury, medical malpractice, product liability, business litigation, and insurance disputes.

 Morgan & Morgan’s tagline “For the people” has been the guiding principle for the law firm since its inception. John Morgan is an active member of the Florida Academy of Trial Lawyers and has always supported policies in Florida that protect families from corporations and insurance companies.

The Uncommon Evening Gala is the foundation’s signature event, celebrating the organization’s core values, as well as awarding scholarships, and the Business Ethics Award. This year’s ethics award nominees are CONRIC PR + Marketing, Scotlynn USA, and Sanibel Captiva Community Bank. The gala also raises funds for its mission to support character education, business ethics, scholarships and historical preservation.
