Your Personal Dream Team
Effective Legal Counsel in Brevard County, Florida
The law firm of Morgan & Barbary was formed in 1999 by longtime friends Clay Morgan and Patrick Barbary. We moved into our present law office in Melbourne, Florida in 2002, where clients are served by four capable attorneys with 75 years of combined experience.
We serve all residents of Brevard County, including students of Florida Institute of Technology, employees of Kennedy Space Center and personnel from Patrick Air Force Base. Many of our clients are visitors from other states who were injured or arrested while traveling in Florida. Our practice is limited to criminal defense, personal injury litigation, and divorce and family law.
Personable. Ethical. Accessible. Affordable.
Realizing that people are turning to us at a vulnerable time, we do everything we can to be supportive, available and responsive. We never make false promises or give clients unrealistic expectations — our representation is based on honest advice and earnest effort to achieve the best possible outcome. Our focus is efficient and effective resolutions that meet client needs, seeking out-of-court solutions over drawn-out litigation.
It is also important for clients to know that they will not be turned away when they need quality legal counsel:
- We offer a free consultation for criminal defense and personal injury matters.
- We take injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency fee — no attorney fees unless we recover compensation on your behalf.
- We can work out payment plans for divorce and criminal defense matters, and we accept major credit cards.

Have You Been Arrested in Brevard County?
Effective Criminal Defense by Former Prosecutor Patrick Barbary
If you have been charged with a crime in Brevard County, it is important that your criminal defense lawyer understand the workings of the local justice system. Whether you have been falsely accused or you have gotten yourself into serious trouble, Morgan & Barbary aggressively fights to keep your record clean or to minimize the penalties you face.
Don't make statements. Don't sign anything. Don't make any deals. Talking to the police or prosecutors before getting legal advice never betters your position, but it can easily make things worse.

Former Prosecutor Who Knows the System
Attorney Patrick Barbary has practiced criminal law for over 15 years, including several years as a Brevard County prosecutor. Mr. Barbary's familiarity with the Brevard County courts is a significant benefit to clients in the adult or juvenile criminal law system. That experience provides him with insights for evaluating a case and responding to charges.
In one instance, when two clients were charged with attempted murder, Mr. Barbary's intervention resulted in re-filing the case as simple misdemeanor battery — as it should have been in the first place — and then a plea to disorderly conduct.
Patrick Barbary will not simply plead a case. He can and does take cases to trial if that is the best way to protect your rights. He is adept at poking holes in the prosecution's case to get charges dismissed or evidence excluded through pre-trial motions. He negotiates a more favorable plea bargain, or works to create enough reasonable doubt for a jury to return a verdict of not guilty.
We assist clients with bail motions. In some cases we can also help to seal or expunge past criminal records, so that your record is clear and you can legally state that you were never arrested for that offense.
See arrest tips to protect your rights until you can talk with a criminal defense attorney. It is important to not speak with the police or accept a prosecutor’s plea bargain without consulting a lawyer.
