Steve was one of the top defense lawyers in Texas for over two decades.
He has since made the decision to help injured accident victims instead of representing the interests of the defendant.
He knows the key issues and hurdles facing a plaintiff much more than the vast majority of the other plaintiff lawyers I have worked against during my 19 year law career as a defense lawyer.
He came to mind first when I needed to consult with a lawyer for my own legal issue.

After a serious rollover accident rendered me a paraplegic, I contacted Steve Ferrell of the Ferrell Law Firm, P.C. to help me. Steve responded immediately to my call and began to investigate and work on my case. Steve was relentless in his pursuit of my claims against the people whose negligence caused my injuries. Through Steve's hard work and diligent efforts, I was able to receive a very large confidential settlement that will take care of me for the rest of my life. Throughout the process, I never had to go through paralegals or assistants. Steve was always available to speak to me directly, and we spoke about the case on a weekly basis, and sometimes on a daily basis. I never felt rushed when I spoke with Steve because he always took whatever amount of time it took to explain to me everything I wanted and needed to know about the case. The entire time, Steve treated me with dignity and respect. Steve is the most honest and hard-working attorney I've ever met or worked with; and I would highly recommend him not just for his exceptional legal skills, but also because of his integrity.

In my Auto Accident case Mr. Ferrell as helped and guided me properly I never felt if I was alone and when the time came he gave me the best advice. He is very experienced and knowledgeable. He takes his time and explains every step as things comes up and he continue to inform you. I am very lucky and blessed that I had him as my Attorney.

Get This: I worked for a law firm that would have handled my wind storm claim against TWIA. But I chose Steve Ferrell. He spoke to me about my case, and he knows about the law! Not only is Steve the nicest guy you'd ever meet, but he handled my case like the a pro. In the end, we received a much, much larger settlement than we ever thought possible. It was as if the other side rolled over dead! I was so glad I used Steve!!

Mr. Steve Ferrell has been such an amazing Attorney. He treats you more like family than a client. I have known Mr. Ferrell for almost 4 years and every time I have a problem I can call him for advice and He's always available to answer your calls. I have had such an amazing experience with such a great attorney like Steve Ferrell I would definitely refer him to anyone, I mean anyone in the world. I cn say that if you called Steve he will not disappoint you he will always be there to help you no matter what the situation is. I would like to say once again Thanks Steve for all the hard work that you have done for both myself and my family.

I hired the Ferrell Law Firm for a unique personal injury case against a major public venue in Houston (a David and Goliath case). I had tried calling a few other firms, but they never called me back, and the Ferrell Law Firm had strong reviews for personal injury cases on Avvo, so I crossed my fingers and called the Ferrell Law Firm. Mr. Ferrell scheduled an appointment with me promptly and explained to me the advantages and disadvantages of my case, but ultimately he decided to take on my case not because it would necessarily have a big payout, but because he found the case interesting and knew he had a strong background to represent me. Mr. Ferrell always was up-to-date on pending and passed legislation affecting my case and made sure to file any paperwork as needed. He and Susan Shotland, an associate at his firm, were in constant contact with updates and really did an excellent job explaining complex legal issues to me. Through their extensive research, they also uncovered documents that were extremely advantageous to my case and bad for the defense. They also found the best expert in a niche field to write a report for us when it was needed to keep my case moving forward. Again, since my case was relatively small compared to larger personal injury suits, I found this level of service to be phenomenal. The Ferrell Law Firm settled my case for me and I was very satisfied with the settlement amount. I know the firm used their expertise to create realistic goals. Mr. Ferrell also always presented choices to me but explained with full reasoning why his past experience led him to believe X choice would be best. On a personal level, I also found Steve Ferrell and Susan Shotland to just be nice people to work with. They were kind, friendly people who were passionate about their work without being domineering or patronizing. I highly recommend working with the Ferrell Law Firm if you need a personal injury matter resolved.

Steve is a great lawyer. He builds excellent rapport with his clients and always looks for creative solutions to resolve cases. Steve achieved a number of significant wins on behalf of my former company over the years. I would not hesitate to hire him to represent me personally.
