About Me

I'm a personal injury and accident lawyer in Houston, Texas.  Although my office is in the Northwest Houston / Cypress / Tomball area, I represent clients from all over the city, all over the state and all over the world!  I take great pride in taking an aggressive stand against insurance companies while remaining approachable and availible to my clients.  I have personally handled hundreds of cases involving car accidents, 18 wheeler wrecks, trip and fall, slip and fall, motorcycle collisions, premises liability, brain injury, nursing home abuse and wrongful death.


 


I truly enjoy talking to my clients and educating them about the law and their legal rights.  Of course I also enjoy securing sold recoveries for those clients on their cases.  I protect my clients just like I would protect my own family.

  • William J. Dyer

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Stewart and I became friends a few years ago when we shared office space, and I've had many chances to consult with him on my cases or his. He has first-rate legal skills, enhanced by personal creativity and a passion for advocacy. And Stewart may be one of the best lawyers I know at communicating with his clients. He uses language and examples that his clients can understand. As a result, they can be confident that they're being well represented and that the recommendations Stewart makes are likely to be solid ones, carefully chosen to fit their individual situations. Many clients feel "alone" even after they've hired a lawyer; but I believe Stewart's clients always know he's in their corner, fighting for their interests, and that to him, they're never just files or pieces of paper or a chance to earn a fee. He's a man of integrity, sound judgment, and great heart, and I'm proud to call him a friend and colleague.
