Shawn Murray! Best Workmen Comp attorney!
Shawn has been great in handling my husband's case. When he says he will do what's best for us he means it. He has been so helpful and reliable. Shawn has gone above and beyond to get everything we can with our case. He is always available when we call for information are guidance. He has fought hard on our case and we are greatly appreciative of all he has done for us. We highly recommend him and he has been very helpful to us in this difficult case.

Excellence Personified
I’m not a guy whom has a lot of friends, the primary reason for that is because I’m honest, regardless of the consequences! So, take what I say as the truth, and nothing but. If you are looking for a Workers Comp Attorney that is super nice and gets along with everybody all the time, even if you need something fast, swipe left! Why say that you ask? Because Shawn Murray is a fighter, he gets things done, and done right fast! When I ask him to help me with filling meds or something, it gets done, even if a few toes get stepped on. I don’t know who or why you’re reading this, “shopping around” maybe. Stop looking, pick up the phone, and call Shawn now! I can say without any hesitation, choosing Shawn (and his Wife Donna) to represent me in my WC case, was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I have actually had a WC Coordinator come up to me and say “if I ever get injured on the job, the first thing I’m doing is hiring Shawn”. That’s the absolute truth, hand to God.

Very thorough attorney!
Mr.Murray was a saving grace for me and my family. He took my case when I didn't know what to do anymore and he put me at immediate ease. When I saw the size of my file during one of our visits I was taken back by how much research he put into my injury and my case. He is punctual with email returns, phone calls, and consultations. He leaves no detail unturned. I strongly recommend Mr.Murray for your workman's comp needs!

Professional and Well-Educated
Mr. Shawn M. Murray is simply the best. After contacting 3 attorneys who didn't return my calls, I contacted Mr. Murray about my worker's comp case. He responded very quickly and was ready to help me. He and Mrs. Donna genuinely care about their clients. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer.

Mr. Murray is the best Workmans comp attorney on the North Shore
Words alone can't describe how thankful I am to Mr. Murray. And how He kept reminding me that he had my back and to not just role over for those who wronged me. Any question I had was answered extremely fast. And if something wasn't being taken care of that should have been covered, With in a day or two the problem would be solved. I had to have a operation on my back to install a battery for my new Spinal Stimulator. And after a few days Mr. Murray called to check in on me and how things went. ( Ended up having to back and get the darn think moved because it somehow tilted to the side. And I was forced to wear a griddle in the middle of Summer to keep it from shifting.) Mr. Murray will actually sit down with you on a one to one bases to discuss Your case and Your options. And if any sort of treatment or surgery needs to be done. He'll do whatever it takes to make sure his clients are Happy but most of all Well taken care of. Anyone I know who gets hurt on the Job or anyone they know who are looking for legal representation. I give that person his Info and Highly suggest Mr. Murray. Thank You Mr. Murray for representing me for as long as you did. You've earned my respect and trust. So once again Thank You

Top Notch Attorney
Shawn Murray is an excellent attorney. He was always available to answer any questions I had. He and his wife Donna were extremely professional and treated me more like a friend than a client. I would happily recommend him to anyone in need of legal services!

Good people
When filing a workers comp or personal injury claim, it definitely pays to have an attorney. Shawn was willing and very able, to deal with the insurance company on my behalf which was invaluable because the insurance companies DO NOT play fair. Shawn and Donna were always friendly and informative. Thanks guys!

BRILLIANT ATTORNEY
I would recommend Mr. Murray to everyone. I knew the moment I spoke to him I would hire him. I could tell he would have my best interest and fight for me. Mr. Murray and Donna made me feel like someone cared. They answered phone calls in a timely manner and handled any problem I had in a timely manner. Mr. Murray also stayed on top of everything every step of the way and kept me informed as to where we were at all times. Excellent all the way!!!

Tried to hire 3 attorneys in the past for my wc case and none of them wanted to take my case. I hired Mr. Shawn and Wow!!!, he moves fast. I had my wc case settled in a short time and got all the money $$$ we asked for. HE IS THE BEST! I would highly recommend him! Thank you Shawn and Donna for your time and services.

Excellent Attorney
My name is Anthony. I was referred to Mr. Murray after the hurricane Katrina and Rita. We both had to deal with that. I had gone up North Louisiana after the evacuation and there I got a call from Mr. Murray. My attorney was Christy Burnthorne but she left Louisiana after the hurricane. Mr. Murray ask to take my case on an workman comp. case. He promised to do his best to continue what Ms. Burnthorne had done. Well to make a long story short. Mr. Murray not only covered all matters concerning my situation but he found other areas that kept workman comp. from not giving me what I deserve. I highly recommend and refer Mr. Murray services to everyone I come into contact with. One more thing I need to add. When you contact Mr. Murray, unlike some attorneys, he will return your call. I am honored to write a review for Mr. Murray.

Awesome!!!!
Shawn was very knowledgeable about workers comp. I went to see him when I really didn't know where to turn after almost 3 years of being jerked around by workers comp. I am very thankful to him and Donna for their help . I hope to never need his services again, but if I do or if I need to refer someone else, he would be the guy.

Work Related Injury
Shawn Murray did an excellent job of handling a workman's comp case for me. Within a short period after I initially contacted him he was able to bring the case to a successful conclusion.

Really Has Your Back
I strongly recommend The Law Frim Of Shawn M. Murray.Mr. Murray and Mrs.Donna are sincere, compassionate and without a doubt I can say they have my back. Unfortunately I took a fall at work enjuring my MCL and needed a full reconstruction surgery to repair it. Knowing I would be out of work I had all the worries of my injury ,finances and really needing some one to fight for my rights.So I called Mr.Murray,I can say that's the best decision I ever made.Also talking with Mr.Murray he had my full understanding of my situation and knew exactly what I needed.My experience with Mr.Murray and Mrs.Donna has brought me great results and satisfaction. So again I truly recommend their law firm.

My,Workers Comp.Case
My experience with Shawn Murray was wonderful. It was my first time having to use a lawyer. He made my life better knowing i had someone on my side fighting for me. When calling the office and hearing Mrs. Donna's sweet voice reminded me that I was in good hands. I would definitely recommend and use him in the future.

Very appreciative
In May of 2011 I had what I thought was a minor workplace accident. It turned out that it was not minor. I n the beginning the insurance company was very co-operative and forthcoming. As time progressed they got harder and harder .to deal with. Eventually I called Shawn Murray to ask about my rights and other questions. He was generous with his extensive knowledge and advice. After a while I just got so frustrated with the insurance company and the constant change of adjuster's (about 10 changes, no exaggeration!), that I decided to retain a lawyer, so of course I called Shawn. I know he had his trials with the insurance company, too, but I no longer had to deal with them directly, for which I was grateful for. Eventually we had to file a lawsuit which of course, got the attention of the insurance company! After over 3 1/2 years Shawn was able to negotiate a modest cash indemnity settlement that left the company but left the related medical coverage wide open for the rest of my life! I would not hesitate to recommend Shawn and his great Assistant Donna. They were always professional, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

Wonderful person to have represent you
Very understanding of my case and I was constantly kept informed of all updates. He returned all my calls in a very timely manner and was able to answer all questions that I had. I would not hesitate to recomend him to anyone. Going through a long process with workmen comp he (Shawn) kept the pressure on the insurance company and never gave up.

Highly recommend Mr. Shawn M. Murray, Attorney at Law
I was injured on the job in 2005 and was placed on Worker's Compensation. Mr. Murray became my Attorney near the end of 2008. My first 3 Attorneys were not helpful at all and I was extremely depressed. Because of this I contacted the Louisiana State Bar Association and explained my situation to them and I asked for a recommendation. They highly recommended Mr. Shawn M. Murray, Attorney at Law. I will be forever grateful to the Louisiana State Bar Association for that recommendation. Mr. Murray is an excellent Attorney. He was very thorough, very compassionate and very dedicated to me and my case. Mr. Murray worked diligently on my case and the final outcome of my case was successful, I will happily recommend Mr. Murray to anyone in need of an Attorney.

Best of the Best
I retained Mr Murray two years ago following an employment injury. He explained all matters of my case in a way I could understand. Before retaining Mr Murray the workers compensation firm representing my former employer was taking their time in approving my medical treatment. After hiring Mr Murray he made sure they authorized treatments in the time allotted per the law. Throughout my case which lasted over two years he and his staff always kept me informed of the progress of my case and what should be expected at each stage. He and his staff always took their time in answering any questions I had and made me feel my healthcare needs were first priority. He is highly knowledgeable of the law and I appreciate all he and his staff did to resolve my case. If you need a workers compensation attorney don't hesitate to contact Shawn Murray.

Shawn Murray Attorney Excellence
I can't speak enough about how wonderful Shawn Murray was for our case. He kept us informed at every step of the process. He went out of his way for personal help with finances when we needed it throughout our case. He always gave us information in lay terms so that we could understand everything. At all times he made us feel important, not as though we were his only client but regardless of the money he would be or would not be gaining from our case that we meant something to him as people and I could say that I count him as a very good friend. Our case remains in limbo but not because of anything he did wrong but because of some extenuating circumstances beyond his control and even though the case that he was hired for is finished he continues to be in constant contact and does everything in his power to help us to bring our case to a resolve through other means. His dad Julian Murray and Shawn are extremely honest, upright and I would recommend them to anyone without question. I count them both as friends and I wish Shawn the very best in his business and I look forward to continuing with him for his advice as we attempt to bring our case to a resolve
