Excellent employees
They handled a lawsuit in which I was part, and every time I contacted one of the employees they were always very nice and knowledgeable. The last lady I talked with went about and beyond what she probably needed to and I want to thank her personally. Sonia Tuckerson, that you so very much. I certainly recommend this company.

Hernia Mesh
I am very happy with McDonald Worley. Ms. West always returns my calls or emails. My case has not settled yet, but because of the monthly updates and the conversations with Ms. West I am very confident of the outcome. I would recommend this firm to friends and family. Barbara

Great firm
I had a PI case that were mere months before the statutes of limitations expired, because my previous lawyer was lazy. Another law firm declined to take my case because it was so close to expiring. Fortunately Mcdonald Scott Worley was able to help and I got my settlement. I couldn't thank them enough!

Great help from the Lawyers at McDonald Worley
I realise that my case is a bit different from the others here but this firm does a lot more than mass torts. I contacted them to help me resolve some financial issues after being sued by several parties. I worked with Michell before my court dates and with both Bill and Michell during the hearings. In the end all the lawsuits against me were dismissed. Thanks to the two awsome attorneys and all the paralegals that worked on my case!

Awesome Firm
I contacted this office after being strung along and then dumped by other firms in my home state of Arizona. According to the latest update for my case, it has been filed in the court, so now it’s just a matter of time. But through this whole process this firm has been great. When I contact them they know exactly who I am and what its in reference to. They are always very sweet, helpful, and very polite. I am especially impressed that Mr Worley takes the time to check in and lets me know where we are in this process. Granted it’s a general video link that is aimed at all of his clients in a particular group, but thats fine with me, none of the other lawyers I had previously, ever even bothered to know my name let alone contact me, ever! Oh, thats wrong, they sent a letter stating they could not take my case after stringing me along for months! All the while I’m laid up in bed unable to do anything! I would recommend McDonald Worley to everyone and anyone who might ask.

Slip and fall case
I was so lucky this firm took my case. I have to say that J. Kyle Beale of this firm was excellent during the whole process. He kept me informed and answered any questions I had. He guided me through the process and and had was able to get me a great settlement so I could get the physical therapy I needed.

Exceptional Customer service
I spoke with an employee by the name of Griselda. A, she was very professional and helpful. Answered all of my questions, and put my mind to ease. It's already hard enough to have to deal with the court system but she gave me a lot of good information. Thank you and i highly recommend this office.

Houston Personal Injury Lawyer
This Houston based injury lawyer helped me in one of my lowest moments. I felt humiliated, singled out, depressed and he not only got me a vast settlement for my claim, he got me justice and peace of mind. I would glowingly recommend to any that are in need of legal services.

It's been a long time and I've been patiently waiting.
I've been with this group for about 4 years or more and I recently received an update saying my information was complete. When I called a few weeks back and spoke with a paralegal, she was very kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable. The only problem is, it's been such a long time and there's no date in sight of when my case may come to settlement. She stated that it takes a long time and that's understandable, my only worry is that the year or more that she mentioned, could turn into an eternity. What would be helpful is if the firm, could show clients documents of some sort, proving that your case is actually going to be brought up for settlement. From what I see here, many, have those questions That would be a great way for people to know, it's actually happening and not some sort of scam as some people are thinking. I believe that Mcdonald Scott Worley is respectable company, trying their best to get through all these cases.

They are representing my father for a hernia mesh case
I am now the one who is to be informed about my fathers case as he unfortunately passed away suddenly this year. I was told I would get monthly updates, I have not received any yet. I was also informed that it could take 5 years to see a settlement ( my father was not informed of this in 2020 when he signed with your firm) I realize that these things take time, with that said I do think I should get a full update on where we stand now with his case. I would greatly appreciate an actual attorney reaching out and briefing me on where we stand, the manufacturer you are going after, is this a class action ect ect. Thank you

I apologize that you have not been receiving the updates. Perhaps we have the wrong contact information for you. We will reach out to you and give you an update. Just so you know, it is not a class action. Each case is on it's own. Happy New Year!

This is by far the worst firm I’ve dealt with! They are horrible with keeping you updated, then when they do update you, they tell you information that isn’t true. They basically spin you around the corner and just feed you anything. Don’t get me started on the paralegal, Christina. She NEVER responds to emails or anything. I just don’t get it. They send out paperwork explaining your settlement, promising a certain amount with a time frame if you send back docs right away. Find out you only walk away with about 25-30% if that. Well well well, Now it’s, oh a certain amount was held back for medical liens and the resolution department must finalize before we can release payment. Well I would love to see documentation stating that liens were actually placed and money held back for that purpose. With that being said, I feel like we’ve been scammed all around!!! Praying we all get to the bottom of this and receive our freaking money!!! We’ve waited long enough!!!

I'm not sure who you are because you did not say your name here. However, I obviously did not do a good job explaining the lien process in my email to you. Health insurance companies have a legal right to be reimbursed out of your settlement if they pay for health care related to your injury. I know it doesn't seem fair after what happened to you but that is the current law. Also, you should be receiving monthly updates from us via email and text message. Please reply to my email letting me know who you are and I will personally call you to go over everything. And I will work with the court appointed lien resolution company to get the documents you want regarding the liens. Have a good weekend. - Don Worley

Started Off GREAT, but now NO RESPONSE or Updates
I am a client. My name is Jimmy Rinehart. My case is the Defective Knee claim & MWPC case #1901529. So, you are able to verify my identity. I signed the settlement agreement at the end of 2021. I have received my last "pay off" notice from CMS (Medicare) that their portion of the lawsuit has been settled, indicating they have been paid. The last email update I received from McDonald Worley was January 26, 2022. I've heard nothing since then and have received no return calls or email responses to my update inquiry. Considering this firm is apparently getting close to 40% of the settlement, I would think they would be more responsive at this point. I guess they're just holding the funds for the interest. They really were great at the beginning. But now I'm trying to decide if I should reach out to the State of Texas Bar Association or to the Attorney General's office. Really disappointed in what I thought was going to be a great representative firm for my defective knee claim.

My hands are up!!!!
I filed with the Firm in 2018 in a class action lawsuit I was told several months ago possibly even last year that settlement would either be paid out in June or October of this year time went by still didn't hear anything from them so I emailed them again I get emails back responding with attitude like I am a bother to them when I hired them and the fact that they said they would let me know when they have more information and it completely changed then receive an email that it will be wrapped up by the end of this year and still no word. The Firm has gone through so many paralegals over the years I didn't know which ones to contact and when I didn't hear from anyone I finally called and was told they would call me back. Totally understand being in class action lawsuit as big as the one that I'm in a lot of people and a lot of hands I thank McDonald Worley so much for their time and efforts but yes I am as well frustrated because I am trying to look for updates put it on the Internet or just in general on their site and I don't see anything I don't even see anything posted or you know shown on the news anymore about the lawsuit I'm really starting to think that no there is no money at the end of this site and I'm really starting to get upset at the beginning of all of this when I did the consultation in 2018 I was told a young lady my age was awarded 1.2 million dollars in her lawsuit. NO, I won't even get close to that if any once all things are said and done.

Frustrating to say the least
I am a part of a class action lawsuit with this firm. I have been told numerous time, "It won't be long now." or " It should be by _____". All those times come and go. It has been nearly a year since the suit was settled. My paperwork came in the mail and I was called immediately and made to feel as if there was a huge rush to get it in and I am still waiting, 10 months later, for any sign of a disbursement. I have to call and email numerous times to get a response. When I call, I get "Well when you were emailed last month we said....". The tone is condescending at best. I am so very frustrated. I am tired of getting stock, wait and see, answers. I feel as if this is all been pretend... not to mention if a payout ever comes to fruition, the firm will take nearly HALF of my settlement as payment for their "services".

Response from Mcdonald Worley December 3, 2021
Tabitha, I know it is frustrating to wait on the lien resolution process. As you know, this part of the process is done by a court appointed lien administrator and is out of our control. We are frustrated with the long wait as well. Also, I want to let you know that my firm's fee will not and will never be half of what you receive. I'm happy to review our agreement together in person or on the phone at your convenience. I'm sorry that you are frustrated and I hope to have good news for you soon. -Don
