We are a medium sized law firm based in Cathedral Yard, Exeter and you can expect to receive, as standard, exceptionally high quality legal services at a price you can afford. However, it is our friendly, non-stuffy approach to the law that sets us apart from the rest of the lawyers in Exeter and makes us a must when deciding who to instruct to deal with your everyday legal needs.

Why choose us?

We understand that you come to see us either when you are going through a very distressing time or when you have a question that requires specialist knowledge. This is why we ensure that you are assigned a qualified lawyer who has the specialist skills you need and why that person will continue to be your main point of contact until the case has been completed. With Morgan & Pope Solicitors, you never need to worry that your case has been lost to a team of unqualified fee earners!
