Morton & Gettys LLC was established in 2001 in Rock Hill, South Carolina. It is a growing firm of 10 attorneys who provide legal counsel in areas of business and corporate law, commercial and residential real estate, estate planning and probate law, family law, criminal defense and more.
The company, whose tagline is “Traditional standards with a progressive attitude,” maintains offices in both York and Rock Hill.
Owen maintains ties to the community via membership in the Junior Welfare League of York County, along with volunteer work.
“I take great pride in giving back to my community because it’s given so much to me,” she said.
