Henry W. Morrow, Jr., known to his friends and colleagues as "Bucky," graduated with a Juris Doctor degree from the West Virginia University College of Law in 1982 and immediately joined a general practice with his father, Henry W. Morrow, in Charles Town, West Virginia. His early days included writing wills and administration of estates together with a busy real estate and banking practice his father had enjoyed for many years. In addition to his day-to-day law practice, he also served as a part-time, appointed mental heath judge (mental hygiene commissioner) and chief mental health judge for the 23rd Circuit (Jefferson, Berkeley and Morgan Counties) from 1987 to 1999. Presently, while he still maintains a broad, general practice, the bulk of his time is centered around probate and estate administration including estate litigation.
Bucky's accomplishments are varied and many. He has served on numerous local and regional arts and other nonprofit boards and has been active in community and civic affairs for many years. In 1979, he was one of the co-founders of the Millbrook Orchestra and served as its executive director until 1994. He served as a special consultant in mental health matters to the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals planning and directing mandated state-wide mental health law education and training seminars. His students included judges, magistrates, lawyers, psychologists, doctors, nurses and social workers from all parts of West Virginia. He designed and created all of the original forms presently used by the courts in West Virginia in involuntary commitment and conservator guardian matters. He was tapped to serve on the Court's Mental Hygiene Reform Commission following two terms as chair of the West Virginia Mental Health Planning Council. He has served as an elected governor on the West Virginia State Bar Board of Governors and chaired the Bar's Public Information Committee. He has recently been appointed to a three-year term on the West Virginia State Bar Lawyer Disciplinary Board.
Bucky's father and law partner, Henry W. Morrow, The other "Morrow" of Morrow and Morrow, was born in 1919, began practice in 1942, and died in 2004. Today, Bucky carries on the proud tradition his father established in 1942 as a sole practitioner keeping the firm name in memory of his father.
