Rachel Morefield is a member of Baron & Budd’s Opioid Litigation Group. She joined the firm in 2019.
After receiving her bachelor’s degree in political science at the University of Texas at Austin in 2014, Ms. Morefield continued her education at the University of Houston Law Center. While in law school, she served as an editor on the Houston Journal of Health Law and Policy and as an associate board member of The Advocates, a student organization devoted to improving oral advocacy presentation skills through competition.
Ms. Morefield started her legal career at an insurance defense firm in Sugar Land, Texas, but quickly realized that she preferred to work in plaintiff litigation. She decided to join a boutique personal injury firm in Houston, Texas, where she found her calling while working on mass tort litigation. Following the horrific shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people and wounded 489 more on October 1, 2017, Ms. Morefield worked tirelessly to help build a case that will hopefully one day bring justice to those affected by the tragedy.
Desiring to return to her Longhorn roots, Ms. Morefield moved back to Austin. Her passion for mass tort litigation ultimately brought her to Baron & Budd’s Pharmaceutical Litigation Group. Ms. Morefield is excited to focus her practice on the nation’s devastating opioid crisis in an effort to help alleviate the damage caused by the tortious actions of unscrupulous pharmaceutical companies.
