Biography

Rory Morgan grew up in Coquitlam, graduating from Simon Fraser University and then University of Victoria’s Law school in 1998.  He joined Kane Shannon Weiler LLP’s Surrey office in January of 2021.

Rory has been practising law for over 20 years, with a major focus on personal injury and general litigation. His professional background includes partnerships in both a full service law firm and a firm specializing in personal injury. Rory has had major successes in representing clients with significant injuries, including brain, paraplegic, quadriplegic, orthopedic, chronic pain, PTSD, and depression.

Throughout the years, Rory has been a volunteer as a Director with the Surrey Board of Trade and other professional organizations including Access Pro Bono.
