Morgan D. Ditch
Morgan grew up in rural Missouri near Harrisonville. He went to college at Truman State University, where he was recognized as the Outstanding Undergraduate Student in Economics. More importantly, during college he married his lovely wife Susan, who grew up on a farm near Chillicothe.

Next, Morgan enjoyed three warm years in Tucson attending law school at the University of Arizona. He was managing editor of the Arizona Law Review and graduated summa cum laude, Order of the Coif.

​After law school, Morgan worked at Sullivan & Cromwell in Washington D.C. There, he primarily worked on litigation and government investigations involving large companies and investment banks.

​But two years at a big firm in a big city was enough, and his oldest daughter Ainslyn was approaching school age. Morgan and Susan moved back home to Missouri, settling down in Jefferson City.

Morgan joined the Missouri Attorney General's office as a prosecutor in the Public Safety Division. As an assistant attorney general Morgan prosecuted a wide variety of criminal cases in trials all over Missouri, including DWI, workers' compensation insurance fraud, assault, and homicide cases. He also wrote hundreds of briefs in post-conviction cases, defending convictions against collateral attack in Missouri circuit courts, the Missouri Court of Appeals, the Missouri Supreme Court, the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Missouri, and the U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. 

After his service at the Missouri Attorney General's Office, Morgan founded Ditch Law Firm to use his experience as a former prosecutor and trial attorney to help people in Jefferson City and surrounding communities with criminal defense and traffic issues.
