I love what I do because I cure pain—the pain of my candidates who want to find new homes for their careers and of my clients who have strong needs for attorneys with specific expertise. I love what I do because I make a difference in the lives of people I place, as well as their loved ones.

Darin Morgan is the Managing Partner of our Philadelphia office and a Partner in our Washington, D.C., office, and is very active in both markets. He places both partners and associates into both large and boutique law firms. Darin is dedicated to helping his law firm clients find suitable partners and associates, with total responsiveness and integrity. He also draws on his experience as an NFL agent in representing candidates in the legal marketplace as they seek to find the right firm for their practice.

Darin lives with his wife, Jamie, an estate planning attorney, and his two children, Nate and Maya. He loves playing and watching all sports, and is a lifelong fan of all four of Philadelphia’s major sports teams. When he is not at work, you can usually find him coaching one of Nate or Maya's games or playing in one himself.


Before moving into legal search, Darin was a commercial and class action litigator for more than 10 years, most notably with Fox Rothschild and Berger & Montague. He has also served as an agent for a number of NFL players over the past 10 years.
