About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

I co-founded Sutliff & Stout, PLLC, a Houston Injury & Accident Law Firm, because I wanted to help real people with real problems. Raised in a small West Texas town, I was taught the value of hard work, determination, fairness and helping others. My early interest in the law was inspired by my greatest role model, my father. As the son of an attorney and former State Court District Judge, I learned as a child that through the legal system you can help folks stand up for themselves and hold irresponsible people and companies accountable for their actions.

After graduating high school, I attended the University of Mississippi where I earned a degree in just three and a half years. I then enrolled in law school at South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas and earned a doctor of jurisprudence in just two and a half years.

Upon completing law school, I worked as a trial attorney for several large law firms, including Phelps Dunbar and Chamberlain Hrdlicka. While working at these large law firms, I represented Fortune 500 companies, mid-sized businesses and large insurance companies. Having learned how large corporations and insurance companies operate, I decided to leave the practice at the large firm and focus on personal injury litigation.

Hank Stout is the attorney to go to.
I was injured in the oilfield when pipe fell on me. I had to get a total knee replacement. The company tried to say it was a previous problem. Hank Stout made sure I got all the medical and emotional support that I needed to get me and my family thru difficult issues. Mr Stout treated me with kindness and respect , and when it came time for litigation he was tough and confident. He gets the job done. I highly recommend Hank Stout.

Terrific
2. I was seriously injured in a car accident when a driver that should have yielded slammed into the passenger side of my vehicle. When I learned that I would need neck surgery, I called Sutliff & Stout to find how whether they could help, and I’m so glad that I did. They helped me get the medical treatment I needed and were genuinely interested in my recovery. The only thing I would have done differently is called them sooner.

Best decision
Getting hit head-on by an oilfield truck was bad enough, but to also have the insurance company try to say that I was the one at fault, convinced me that I needed an attorney. I decided to call Hank Stout at Sutliff and Stout Firm and it was definitely the right decision. The lawyers were very knowledgeable about my type of case. They helped me get the medical care I needed and gave me a fair settlement. I recommend Sutliff & Stout to everyone I know.

Huge Help and Treated Fairly
After I was injured at work, I didn’t feel like the company was treating me fairly or getting me the care I needed for my injuries. I decided to call Sutliff & Stout to discuss my options and they were a huge help. Not only was my lawsuit against my company successful, but the Firm made the process as stress-free for me as they possibly could.

Highly recommend!
I guess you could say I was at the wrong place at the wrong time quite a bit (I was involved in 3 car accidents in 18 months). Although I viewed my case as a "lower profile" type, Hank never made me feel that way. I retained Hank after dismissing another attorney who after almost three years was unable to reach a settlement on my behalf. He walked me through the process, kept me informed and aggressively fought for what I felt was important. Hank is very knowledgeable, honest and is prompt in returning phone calls, emails and answering any and all questions. Because of his determination and experience, I received three times as much as the previous attorney was able to settle for. I am extremely pleased with the outcome and have been able to move forward with my life. God forbid I am ever in a need for an attorney again, I need to look no further than Sutliff &Stout. You don’t need to take my word for it, just check out the “Results” section of their website, www.sutliffstout.com The results speak for themselves.

Mr. Stout gave sight to a blind boy
My son was in the wrong place at the wrong time when another child through a pen from across the room and it landed in my sons eye. My son had one eye surgery to repair the trauma and would be needing another one to restore his sight. Mr. Stout won my case for my son, and it allowed the second surgery for his lens implant and also helped me with the financial burden the accident had caused. My son can now see clearly and his medical future needs are secured. Thank you Mr. Stout

Hank Stout, best lawyer I've ever hired
Hank Stout is a tenacious and caring advocate for his clients and will leave no stone unturned in his pursuit of justice for those he represents. I was very pleased with his representation, he handled everything well from the major issues to the smallest details, and would absolutely hire him again and recommend him to others in need of excellent legal services.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Hank for several years. When he was on the defense side, and I had several cases against him, I found him to be an intelligent, aggressive, and persuasive advocate for his corporate clients. Since switching over to plaintiff's work, these traits come through even stronger with Hank. Whenever I consider joint venturing a plaintiffs' case with or referring a plaintiffs' case to another lawyer, Hank Stout is at the top of my list. I heartily endorse him."

Personal injury Attorney | Apr 16
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Stout is an excellent lawyer. I referred a defective tire case to him and he did a first class job working up the case and getting an excellent recovery for the client. Several other lawyers before Mr. Stout turned the case down, thinking it had little value. Because Mr. Stout was willing to do the work, it soon became apparent that the case had significant value. Mr. Stout's hard work and knowledge of the law made this result possible."
Personal injury Attorney | Apr 05
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Hank Stout is not only a brilliant strategist, he is also one of the hardest working and most fearless trial lawyers I know. The service he provides to his clients is exemplary. I would not hesitate a second to refer a serious matter to Hank's firm."
