OccupationLawyer and businessman

Morgan Daniel Meyer (born August 8, 1974) is a lawyer with Wick Phillips in Dallas, Texas,[1] who is a Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives for District 108 in Dallas County. He succeeded the twelve-year House veteran Dan Branch, who ran unsuccessfully in the May 27, 2014 runoff election for Attorney General of Texas but was defeated by then State Senator Ken Paxton. Branch endorsed Meyer as his successor in the House runoff election that year.[2]

Background

From a family of six children,[3] Meyer graduated in 1996 from Southern Methodist University in University Park,[1] which he attended on a scholarship. He was an intern for former U.S. Representative Larry Combest of Texas's 19th congressional district, based about Lubbock.[3] In 1999, he received his Juris Doctor degree from the Washington and Lee University School of Law in Lexington, Virginia.[1]

Meyer resides in University Park with his wife, the former Keana Bucher, and, as of 2014, their three children. He is a Sunday school teacher in the United Methodist Church. He is a past officer of the Greater Dallas Pachyderm Club, an organization which promotes the Republican Party.[3]

Legal and political life

Meyer counsels for Wick Phillips in complex commercial litigation and appeals in the areas of oil and natural gas, telecommunications, intellectual property, consumer finance, banking, employment disputes, real estate, landlord/tenant issues, construction, equipment leasing, and bankruptcy proceedings. Since 2004, he has been repeatedly named by Thomson Reuters among Texas Super Lawyers and Rising Stars."[1]

In his bid for the state House, Meyer on May 27, 2014 handily defeated private equity partner Chart Hampton Westcott (born 1985) of Dallas, his intraparty runoff opponent, 8,551 votes (74.4 percent) to 2,935 (25.6 percent.[4] The campaign was heated and personal; in July, two months after the runoff voting, a flyer, signed by Dallas Cowboys football star Troy Aikman, was mistakenly mailed to voters asking for support for Westcott, who is affiliated with the conservative Traditional Values Coalition. Westcott apologized for the mistake and said that he fully endorsed Meyer in the general election despite their primary rivalry.[2]

In the general election on November 4, 2014, Meyer defeated Democrat Leigh Bailey, who is also a lawyer, 24,973 (60.7 percent) to 16,182 (39.3 percent).[5]

Meyer's District 108 includes Downtown Dallas, Uptown, Old East Dallas, Park Cities, Bluffview, and Preston Hollow.[6]

Meyer narrowly secured his third term in the House in the general election held on November 6, 2018, when Democrats ran strongly in Dallas County. With 39,427 votes (50.3 percent), he defeated Democrat Joanna Cattanach, who polled 39,207 ballots (49.7 percent).[7]
