Ann Morgan is a distinguished attorney in our employment and labor law practice, where her work includes employment law, aviation and general business law matters. She serves in a general counsel capacity to private individuals as well as the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority. Ann is also the past chairman of the Legal Affairs Committee for Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA), an industry group for airports throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.
Originally headed to graduate school in library science, Ann’s plans changed when she fell head over heels for a guy and followed him to the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law. She recently celebrated her 40th wedding anniversary with “that guy,” and the couple have enjoyed fortuitous careers in the law, including being the first husband and wife to serve as presidents of the Washoe County Bar Association. Ann is fond of goal-setting, both personally and professionally — she once wrote out and achieved 100 individual objectives. In her work as an employment attorney, she likes to analyze and prioritize, looking for opportunities to resolve her clients’ issues in a manner that makes both business and legal sense. She truly loves being a labor attorney, and listening to clients – and her favorite moment is when she thinks: “I would love to work on solving that problem.”
She enjoys mentoring young attorneys, stressing the independence a legal career offers and the opportunities to work with really interesting people. Offering the wealth of knowledge she has gained during her career as an employment attorney, Ann is a frequent speaker at employment law seminars, most recently on the topics of wage and hour issues as well as privacy matters. Ann also speaks on the subject of privacy issues related to Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) at aviation seminars.
In her personal life, Ann is an avid fan of the theater and has seen almost all of Shakespeare's plays. She is also known for her themed parties and cocktails. Her next adventure entails visiting all the WPA Lodges, beginning with Yosemite National Park.
