About Seattle Truck Law Attorney Morgan Adams

As a United States Marine Corps veteran with over 22 years of service, Morgan Adams’ military experience prepared him for the “battle” of truck wreck litigation. He now represents the injured victims of crashes that involve large trucks or buses, fighting for those who have been harmed by the negligence and recklessness of others.

As the founding trucking attorney behind Seattle Truck Law, Mr. Adams has successfully taken on cases against some of the nation’s largest trucking, bus, and insurance companies. He is also a longstanding member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, open only to attorneys with a history of multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements.

Additionally, Mr. Adams is a six-time Tennessee Super Lawyer and has been selected in the past as a member of The National Trial Lawyers, an honor available only to the top 100 trial lawyers in each state. He is also the first and only recipient to date of a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Trucking Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), and he received his board certification in civil trial advocacy from the National Board of Trial Advocacy in 2014.

Leader In Truck Accident Litigation

Mr. Adams received his law degree from Georgia State University College of Law in 1989 and joined the prestigious law firm of Hatfield, VanCleave, Akers & Adams as a litigation partner after leaving active military duty. He founded Seattle Truck Law in 1997 and has since established himself as a legal leader in the area of large truck and bus crash litigation; he has lectured and written frequently on this topic throughout the nation for the benefit of other attorneys. He practices today with a sole focus on personal injury cases that involve large vehicles like tractor-trailers, buses, logging trucks, dump trucks, and others.

Since leaving Marine Corps active duty in 1994, Mr. Adams has maintained his commitment to our armed forces by providing pro bono representation for one or more veterans every year. He credits his military service for instilling the work ethic and values that guide him daily as an attorney and advocate for injury victims.
