      I worked with Nick Morrow, John Sheppard, Daniel Sheppard, Patrick McGinnis, and Chris West on my maritime injury case. These guys were incredible. I... was injured badly working on a tugboat, and was forced to leave my career. These lawyers assured me I had a right to recover damages under the Jones Act, even when several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard went above and beyond. They took on costs like hiring expensive experts and taking depositions so that I could be in the best position to prove my case. I watched them handle every excuse the defense lawyers threw at me, and ultimately forced the defendant’s hand in to paying me what I deserved. Morrow & Sheppard always kept me informed and up to date on my case, and developed a personal relationship with me. I would give them the highest recommendation. I still keep in touch with them, and look forward to seeing them whenever I pass through Houston.read more

      Nick Morrow and John Sheppard are the best. I was paralyzed in a work injury. Several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard hired... expensive experts, took dozens of depositions, and proved my case. I saw them in court against a team of defense lawyers, and the defense lawyers didn’t stand a chance. Morrow & Sheppard took my case all the way when nobody else would. Now my family is set up for life. Throughout the process, they kept me updated and made me feel like I was more than a number. I still talk to Nick to this day. Morrow & Sheppard exceeded my expectations in every way, and I cannot recommend them enough. If you are injured at work, call Morrow & Sheppard.read more

      John Sheppard and Nick Morrow were two of the brightest stars in my law school class and my class of lawyers at Fulbright & Jaworski, one of the most... elite and prestigious law firms in Houston and Texas. I have known both of them for well over a decade now and throughout that time they have both always lived up to the highest standards of intellect, tenacity, and professionalism. They are both winners. If you need a Houston lawyer who will stand up for your rights and get you the justice you deserve, I wholeheartedly recommend Morrow & Sheppard. read more

      My experience with John, at Morrow and Sheppard, during my company’s litigation was better than I could have imagined (considering the circumstances... of being involved in litigation). What stood out to me the most, was John’s tenacity in preparation. I later realized this came from two places, one he didn’t want to lose and two (and most importantly) he CARED so much about me getting justice. I cannot stress this enough, when you are dealing with a lawyer that truly cares, then all of the other stresses I had around the case seemed to go away. I was always kept up to date with what was going on in our case, and he always made it very clear he was just an email or call away! In addition to these attributes, he also knows the law and is willing to fight for what is right! It would be tough to find another lawyer that is as highly effective, skilled, knowledgeable, ethical and has such an impeccable reputation (which is well deserved). I would recommend Morrow and Sheppard to anyone seeking out a law firm, in the event they needed counsel.read more
