Government Action

Morgan Drexen’s web site reflects that it provides businesses with integrated support including software development. Many of the business with whom it engages are law firms who provide their clients with debt negotiation services. 

The majority of states have debt settlement statutes which require the debt settlement provider to be licensed and follow other regulations. These statutes specifically exempt attorneys. Because Morgan Drexen is merely an outsourced support service for attorneys who contract directly with their own clients for these services, it is Morgan Drexen’s position that, like any other law firm employee, it need not be subject to the state licensure statutes.

Morgan Drexen’s position has been has been reviewed by a number of state agencies and approved. Among the state agencies that have reviewed Morgan Drexen’s position with approval are New Hampshire, Virginia, Utah, Connecticut, Idaho, Kansas, and Nevada. 

Many state bars who have investigated Morgan Drexen’s support of attorneys under Rule 5.3 of the Rules of Professional Responsibility have, likewise, validated Morgan Drexen’s support role. These states include Florida, California, New Jersey, Mississippi and Alabama.

Eight other state attorneys general, upon receiving requested information and documents from Morgan Drexen, have taken no action against the company asserting a violation of a state licensing statute.

In 2012, a Colorado District Court found in favor of Morgan Drexen and against the Colorado Attorney General ruling that since Morgan Drexen provides support to an attorney, it is likewise exempt from Colorado’s licensing requirement.
