BEST CELEBRITY BREAKUP: Morgan, Colling & Gilbert becomes Morgan & Morgan

Anyone who’s lived in the Bay area for any length of time, and who has a tendency to watch TV in the afternoon or late evening, long ago fell in love with Orlando-based law firm Morgan, Colling & Gilbert via its ubiquitous low-budget commercials. When they said they were “for the people,” man, you could believe it. Which is why we were shocked this year by the new Morgan & Morgan ads. What happened? Where were Colling & Gilbert? Were they no longer “for the people”? Maybe some photos of Morgan and Morgan strolling hand in hand on a foreign beach surfaced — the TV spots weren’t saying. But a little piece of our hearts died along with the legal union we once thought of as eternal as forever itself. www.forthepeople.com.
