Mr. Stoy was born in Fort Worth, Texas and later graduated from Aledo High School.  He spent his childhood riding cutting horses and participating in other ranch-life activities. 

 

            After graduating from Aledo High School, Mr. Stoy attended undergrad at Texas A&M University where he received his Bachelor of Science in Political Science.  While at Texas A&M University, Mr. Stoy was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon and in 2006 was Chairman of Chilifest, Inc.  Chilifest, Inc. is an organization that hosts an annual fund raising concert in a town just outside of College Station.  When Mr. Stoy was chairman, the organization was able to donate over $100,000 to local charities in and around College Station. 

 

            After graduating Texas A&M University, Mr. Stoy attended St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas.  While at St. Mary’s, Mr. Stoy participated on the mock trial team and was a member of the St. Mary’s Law Journal.  While in law school, Mr. Stoy also studied abroad in Innsbruck, Austria where he was instructed by the United States Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

 

            After graduating law school, Mr. Stoy returned to Fort Worth, Texas and began his legal career at prestigious defense firm.  While at the defense firm, Mr. Stoy learned how insurance companies defended cases and uses that knowledge in his practice today.  As an associate, Mr. Stoy was selected to travel to London, UK with the firms partners to learn Lloyds of London, known to most as the world’s largest insurer, handles claims and defends cases.  While the knowledge he gained on the defense side of the bar is invaluable, Mr. Stoy knew that representing the truly aggrieved was the career path for him. 

 

            After a few years as a defense lawyer, Mr. Stoy went to work for a Dallas based plaintiff’s firm that specialized in auto wrecks.  Mr. Stoy was stationed in the firms Fort Worth office where he met his now-partner, Susan Hutchison.  It took less than a year for Chris and Susan to realize that they should open their own firm and did so in late 2014.

Just a client!
First off, this is a real review by an actually person. I know a lot of places pay for these reviews, but Chris does not. So, here is my side of the story on how Chris' company Stoy Law Group won my case. You must know this about Chris before you hire him and his team. He takes BS from no one and especially other attorneys. He does not back down from anyone trying to push his clients around. I saw this personally many times. More on that later... I was hit by a guy in a company work truck who was texting and driving. To me texting and driving is in the same category as drinking and driving, and it is just unacceptable. I saw the whole thing happen in my review mirror. Still to this day I cannot get it out of my head. It plays over and over in my mind like a movie on constant repeat. I am really not a litigious person. However, I was pretty jacked up after the accident and I knew the person who hit me was at fault. Out of principle, and my unadulterated disgust for driving texters, I had to do something. I think ambulance chasers are a scam, and have no faith in them. So, what did I do? I did what you're doing right now, started reading reviews of different attorneys in the DFW (mainly Fort Worth) area. Came across Chris' site and after reading all the reviews, I went with my gut. One of the best decisions I have ever made. Why, because Chris and his team took care me from start to finish. To finish this long review up. I will list all the reasons you should go with Chris and his team: 1. Like I said earlier, Chris does not take BS off anyone. By the end of my case the other attorneys could not stand him, he was relentless. I loved this because I had a previous court case (not a car wreck) where two people could not be together anymore, if you know what I mean. Both of our attorneys knew each other and before the trail began, they were outside the courtroom laughing and cutting up with one another. This bothered me. 2. He has the absolute best supporting staff. His head paralegal Tracy is a freaking rock star. She is so professional and works so hard to make sure everything is perfect for his cases. Thank you, Tracy! 3. His office took care of all my medical bills. 4. I think it is too boastful to put on here how much Chris and his team got for me. However, what I will tell you… again I got all my medical bills payed. I got my car replaced with a newer one and got a good bit of coin in the bank that I did not have before. 5. Chris believes in right and wrong and what the justice of law can do for his clients. 6. This guy works harder than anyone I know. When I started the process with him. His number one piece of advice was... "Randy, you're an honest guy with the right motives. Be patient in this long process and we will take care of you". Wow, did he and his team not disappoint. I'll check this review everyone once in a while. If you response to this review wanting more details, then I will give you way to connect with me. That is how much I believe in Stoy Law group. Hands down the best law group for personal injury period.

Excellent Representation
Chris Stoy did an excellent job on my case. He made sure the process was as clear as possible by taking the time to explain everything to me. I really appreciated that he kept me up to date and stayed in top of things throughout the entire case, which made me feel that my case was truly important to him.

Seasoned Pro!
Chris was so helpful guiding our family through the difficult legal process of a personal injury claim. He helped us feel comfortable with the terminology of the case and familiarized and prepared us for each step. It is hard to imagine the process without such a thorough and seasoned professional. I highly recomend Chris Stoy for your personal injury case.

Best Personal Injury Lawyer in DFW!!!!!!
I was clueless... I had never been injured in a wreck before and had a lot of questions. It wasn't my fault, I was mad the insurance dont help iwth doctor bills right away.. My main concerns was money and was concerned how I was goin to feed my family. As a mother of 3 kids I didn't have the money or time to deal with this car wreck. I was in pain and didn't have any extra money to pay for my bills. Thanksfully one of my cousins mentioned I needed a lawyer. I called and talked with Chris and he helped get me to a doctor. I really like the people that work at Hutchison & Stoy. Priscilla helped me and answered all of my quesitons. They talked to the insurance comapny and got my car fixed and my medical bills paid. I am very blessed and thankful for Chris.

If You Want To Win
If you want to win your case you absolutely must hire Esquire Christopher Stoy. His non lawyer approach, experience, service to humanity, and genuine love for the profession goes a long way. His business partner/ mentor Susan is known and highly respected in the state Texas. Chris faught for me like a friend. Not only did I win my case but, my settlement was far more then I expected. Right to this day I can call him up whenever I have an issue. The entire team at his law firm knew me and the details of my case personally when I called over the phone. Im grateful that God placed Hutchison & Stoy Law Firm in my path in my time of need. Without reservation I recommend these attorneys.

Proficient Attorney with High Ethics and Standards Of Excellence
Christopher Stoy has been working tirelessly on a Personal Injury Lawsuit regarding an automobile accident I suffered earlier in 2015. He has been an absolute joy to communicate with and has gone out of his way to make sure I understand each and every step and potential outcome of what could be a very stressful time. Not only is he very quick and efficient with his communication, but it is clear through each phone call, email etc that he genuinely cares for his clients and their needs. As well, he has worked countless hours to ensure I have appointments with the correct medical professionals and to see that I have a correct diagnosis of the symptoms I am facing post accident. I have utmost respect and faith in Christopher as my attorney, and have no doubts that I will receive the most justified outcome to my case. I have referred his services to friends and coworkers in similar situations and I would not hesitate to provide sound reference to his many excellent attributes.

Thanks for the kind words, C.J. It truly upsets me how much someone else's negligence has affected you. I always love hearing from you.

Professional Best
Mr. Stoy is professional and always knowledgeable, yet he still is able to relate and show empathy. He is super friendly and his staff gets you over to him very quickly when you call. He is a person that shows integrity in business and is just plain nice in life. Great job and knows his stuff. I was refrred by two other attorney's that I called not knowing who to contact. That is a good sign!

Negative Experience
I was referred to Chris Stoy by another attorney. I consulted with Chris and he was extremely nice and understanding about my situation, and made me promises that I could not turn down, so I decided to go ahead and hire him as my attorney. After that initial consultation, his whole demeanor changed. When he called me to tell me the other side wanted to settle, I told him I didn't want to settle, that I wanted a judgement. He got very angry and hostile with me on the phone to the point of making me cry. After the case was settled, he then went back on the promise he made me in the beginning. I do not recommend this Attorney.

Response from Christopher Stoy April 3, 2018
Ms. Jennifer Day - I was surprised today to receive a review from you three years after the case settled. The reviewer is "anonymous," but I'm assuming it is you since you are the only client I ever had who wanted a judgment when the defense was offering $50,000 (the policy limits - i.e. the most that would ever be offered) and the defendant's oil and gas assets. I worked tirelessly on your case to force the defendant to turn over all her oil and gas assets. I took no fee from the oil and gas assets, giving them all to you. Since you did not have health insurance, your medical bills were incredibly high - if I recall, somewhere around $100,000. I also went to work for you on the medical bills. I was able to reduce them down to $10,000 after fighting with the medical providers. Because of this, you were still able to put quite a bit of money in your pocket. I can assure you, had you not of obtained my services (or another attorney who would also have charged a percentage on the case), the entire $50,000 would have gone to medical bills and you would have never received the oil and gas assets. If I made you promises I didn't keep, I am sorry. I have tried to call you multiple times to discuss your case but I can never reach you. My door is always open and my phone is always on the hook if you would like to call and work this out.
