Polsinelli Attorney Caitlin J. Morgan Appointed to The Warren Center Board of Trustees
Polsinelli’s Caitlin J. Morgan
will serve on the 2017 board of trustees for The Warren Center, an organization that provides early detection and intervention strategies to children with developmental differences or disabilities.
“Caitlin’s leadership will be immensely valuable to our 2017 board of trustees,” said Amy Spawn, executive director of The Warren Center. “Her background and skills make her a great asset to the organization as we continue to offer therapy services, parent support groups, community resources and educational workshops not only to our clients, but to any family in need.”
Morgan’s connection to the nonprofit was instantaneous: “I knew I had to get involved immediately after speaking with Amy,” she said. “The organization was founded in 1968 by parents of children with developmental differences. There was a real need for the early childhood intervention services The Warren Center provided in the community. The Warren Center is different from other early childhood intervention programs – it provides one-on-one services and works with parents as much as children. Because of this, The Warren Center has a profound connection to the people it serves, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”
Morgan was introduced to The Warren Center through her colleague Jonathan S. Blum
, counsel at Polsinelli’s Dallas office, who works extensively with nonprofits in the area.
“In a relatively short amount of time practicing law, Caitlin has already made a name for herself as an impressive attorney who is not only dedicated to her practice, but also is passionate about taking an active role to help families in need,” Blum said.
Morgan is a member of the Dallas Bar Association, Dallas Association of Young Lawyers and Council of Appellate Lawyers. She earned her bachelor’s degree with honors from York University in Toronto, Canada, and received her J.D., magna cum laude
, from Albany Law School. She represents a wide variety of clients, including collegiate sports conferences, closely held corporations and Fortune 500 corporations in commercial disputes ranging from breaches of contract to large class actions.
“We are very proud of Caitlin for being elected to The Warren Center’s board of trustees,” said Jon Henderson
, who serves as managing partner of Polsinelli’s Dallas office and chair of the firm’s national Corporate and Transactional practice. “This is truly a testament to her skills both as an attorney and as an advocate within our community.”
Since 1968, The Warren Center has undergone substantial growth, and today serves the North Dallas county areas, including Richardson, Garland, Rowlett, Dallas, Lakewood, Uptown, the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, Addison, Coppell, Carrollton, Farmers Branch and Irving. Currently, the organization is providing services to 2,500 families every year by offering early detection and intervention strategies for their children from birth to 5 years old.
