Being the son of an attorney, I grew up around a law office. I watched my father help people through the most difficult life situations and I knew that's what I wanted to do. One of the first cases my father and I worked on was a wrongful death claim. The victim's family was counting on us to make sure they were financially protected, and to hold the other party accountable. My father and I took on a huge corporation and won.  It's cases like that, where we help real people solve the most difficult of problems.

 

I'm married to Tracy Gray, who is also an attorney at our firm. It's safe to say that the law is a major part of my life. It's what I enjoy doing, helping families and individual throughout Dallas get the best result in their case. I am ready to fight for you and your family. If you have a personal injury, car or truck accident, or wrongful death case you need a lawyer who is ready to fight for you.

 

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, golf, fly fishing, movies, and watching sports on TV. My favorite teams are the Texas Tech Red Raiders, Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, and Dallas Mavericks. When the Cowboys and Red Raiders both win, that's a good weekend, when they don't, it's tough.

Civil Eviction Case
I went to JP Court, (represented myself), to evict a tenant for multiple violations, and not paying rent for months. Judgement was awarded in my favor. However, my tenant played the COVID card, claimed CARES act protection and many other things, to file an appeal. Tenant was granted the appeal to a County Court. I hired the Guest and Gray Law firm to take this matter over. Scott Gray was the Attorney that put my case together. Due to a conflict, Robert Guest stepped in, and tried the case. Both of these attorneys were well prepared and presented a great case before the court. The actions of these people resulted in a judgement in my favor. This thing seemed like a nightmare that just kept dragging on-and-on, until I hired these people to represent me. With the pandemic, shut-downs, and all the mandates put in place to protect tenants, these people still got it done. Trying to get an eviction case before a Judge, during these terrible times we are all experiencing, is difficult. Getting a positive outcome, even more so. Their office staff were great, and they charged me an unbelievably fair Price. Thank you Scott and Robert!

This guy owned the insurance company lawyer
Case was set for mediation at years of litigation. At mediation the insurance lawyer was a complete ass. He made the mistake of trying to bully our lawyer and got owned. We got a great settlement and it was fun watching Scott in action. He's a warrior for his clients.

Car Accident Lawyer Who Cares
My family is going through a terrible car accident lawsuit and we chose Scott to help us. This has lasted years but Scott still takes the time to discuss our case with us and let us know what's happening. The insurance company is trying to get out of paying for this accident, but Scott won't let them. We have worked with lawyers before and Scott is the best so far.

Would reccomend to anyone.
I was involved in an accident where I was the passenger and the victim of the whole incident. I was constantly worried about the outcome whenever I recieved a letter saying i was being sued by the other insurance company for an outrageous ammount of money. Mr. Gray made sure I was clear of any kind of money or responsibility for the incident and if i had any kind of questions I could call him any time and if he didnt answer I recieved a call back from him almost immediately. He knew I was anxious about everything and made sure to call me down and kept me informed the second he found anything out. i would suggest him to anyone. He is a reliable respectful guy and is going to make sure that you have the best experience he can give.

Great Attorney
Scott has been helping me with a business dispute I've been having with my ex partners. He's really help me for a complicated process that I tried to do by myself but was very unsuccessful. I have all the confidence in the world that he is going to get everything worked out for me. So far so good. I have had lots of experiences with other attorneys in the past, and this is by far my best.

Super Attorney
I recently had a case in which my ex was trying to take my child out of the country. Scott got the judge to to issue a restraining order and avoid a disaster. He was great in counseling me as I was very emotional. I can't say enough good things. I would definitely hire Scott again.
Posted by anonymous | October 26, 2011
Good Attorney. I would recommend.
Scott helped me get the right child support amount from my ex. He also was able to settle some visitation issues we had. Good attorney.
Posted by Harry | October 20, 2011
Very knowledgeable and patient.
Scott is a nice guy who was great explaining to me the options I had. He pretty much knew what the judge was going to do on my case and got me a great deal at the hearing. Much bettter than my ex's lawyer. Everybody at his office is real nice and I'd definitely call on them again.

Saved My Day
I had really screwed up my relationship with my kids, but Scott was able to convince the court to give me another chance. The best thing I did was hire Scott.
Posted by Jimmy | January 18, 2010
Honest Lawyer
I have used Scott for several problems. He always advises me of my options and gives me the pros and cons of each. The last problem I used him for was a business dispute I was having. Not only did he get the money I was owed, but he was also able patch up the relationship between myself and the vendor who I was fighting with.

Scott Is A Great Attorney, If You Listen and Do What He Advises
Scott was one of the friendliest and helpful attorneys I had the priveledge of dealing with. He had me all set to fight for custody of my children in my divorce, and we had a good chance of winning. Everything he told me my ex would do, she did to make sure she got custody of my kids. I didnt listen and didnt even get a chance to fight for them cause she tricked me into signing papers. If I had listened to Scott, I would more than likely have my kids right now. Thanks Scott, and Sorry I didnt listen.

Response from Scott Gray December 23, 2009
Joseph, thank you for your kind words. The great (and sometimes bad) thing about family law is that it can be very fluid in dealing with child custody. If something is going on that is not in best intrests of the children the court can modify any orders.
Posted by James | August 15, 2009
Great attorney
My family owes a great debt to this man. I thought I had no chance of getting my boy, but some how Scott pulled it out. Most honest lawyer I have known.
Posted by anonymous | December 28, 2008
Best lawyer in Kaufman County.
Scott has handles both a criminal case and a wrongful death for my family. He was excellent. My cousin was acquitted, and my family was able to get a great settlement on the wrongful death case.

Response from Scott Gray March 21, 2015
Here is the deal with personal injury cases, sometimes you investigate the case and find out it is not a case you can pursue. That happens and you advise the client to seek other counsel, which usually pisses the client off, understandably so. No one likes being told their case is not as good as they thought, it's part of the personal injury business though. We are sorry that this client was not satisfied with our services. However, we have a duty to be honest about the merits of each case. Scott is a highly rated and has been named a Super Lawyer by his peers. He is on the best personal injury lawyers in the State, and any client is lucky to have him review their case, or represent them. Still, the goal at Guest and Gray is always 100% client satisfaction, which may be impossible, but we strive for it and we are always working on ways to improve the client experience, even when it comes to delivering bad news to a client seeking help from our firm.
