Practice areas

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.

Responsive, professional, excellent service, caring staff
Attorney Stewart Guss and staff were responsive, knowledgeable, and caring throughout the process. During the inital highest level of stressful times, this firm stood with and for me. My experience was low to no stress, and most importantly I was fortunate to complete treatment with favorable outcome, which I feel would have been impossible without firm's advice.

The reviews are true.
His firm got us a settlement that exceeded expectations. The case took a year and three quarter due to covid and the the gathering of medical records from health providers being slow. I highly recommend this outfit. We were out of state of Texas it didn't matter regarding results.

The very best attorney
Stewart and his team helped my family and I with our case with the utmost care and diligence I’ve ever experienced! I am so thankful I found them and honestly I wouldn’t trust another team if I should ever need representation again! They are compassionate, patient, caring and they take their responsibilities seriously! I never had to ask for an update, they always were on top of it! They treat you like they care, and not just a “case”! I highly recommend Stewart and his team! They are a blessing!

I was the victim of a bad car accident. I didn’t have a way to seek medical treatment from my injuries. A friend recommended me to Stewart J Guss and they took good care of me. They were able to get me treatment for my injuries right away and assisted me with my insurance claim. They were great to work with and I would recommend 100%!

Excellent Service
The law firm of Stewart Guss gave us excellent service. We had tried to handle the issue on our own, but we having no luck. Our lawyer was very attentive to what we wanted and was timely in letting us know what was occurring in regards to our case. The lawyer answered our tons of questions, and made us feel like they had our best interests at heart. We we given great advice on how to take care of issues, and were very happy with this law firm. Hopefully we don't have to need a lawyer again, but if we do, I would definitely use this law firm again.

BEST BEST BEST LAW FIRM EVER
My family and I had a car wreck so after I thought about how it wasn't my fault and how we were hurt, I did some research and found The Law Office of Stewart J. Guss. Stewart is my attorney for life. I will never go see another attorney if my family or I get into another car wreck. I just can't say enough about how everyone that would speak to me sounded so happy to speak to me. After a while you tend to speak to certain staff members all the time that you get to know them and their families. My Case Manager Luis would call and he would ask about my grandbabies right away. They make you feel like family, they explain to you every aspect of the claim process and they tell you like it is. They do have a gift of building a rapport with clients. Not once did I feel as if I'm nagging or my case was to small for them to even remember my name. I'm so thankful for Stewart Guss and his team of compassionate people, I just cant' say enough good things about them. They have a client in me for always.

Auto accident family of six
In May of 2016 my family and I were leaving a shopping center when we were hit broadside by a vehicle going close to 55 mph. Our van was totalled, injuries to myself and my wife and 4 kids. I called Stewart Guss the next day. Over the course of the following year, we worked to get in better health. Our attorney Ben Kennedy helped us each step of the way. The attorneys of this law firm did everything to help me including helping find transportation when I couldn't drive. We settled the case to a good outcome. We are always going to have back and neck issues, but Stewart Guss and associates helped to negotiate a solid outcome. I am thankful for their help. Solid communications, they set my expectations well and met them consistently. I hope I am never in such a situation again, but if I am I know who I would call.

Highly Recommend Stewart Guss
I was the victim of a serious car accident. I lost my vehicle and was injured as a result of this incident. This was very stressful for me as I live on a fixed income. I didn't have the resources to take care of my medical needs. I decided I needed a lawyer. After reading many positive reviews about Stewart and his team i decided to hire him. He was able to get me medically treated for my injuries and it didn't cost me anything. His team kept me informed and guided me through the process. I am medically better now and my expectations were far exceeded with my settlement. I would highly recommend Stewart and his team!

Grade A Serivce. Cant recommend them enough.
My family was involved in a 5 car accident and I thought all hope was lost since the insurance company dragged their feet and looking like all hope was lost. Stewart Guss came in and did the impossible. Myself and Family received Grade A service working with Guss and Team. Oliver always made sure all our needs where taken care of 100%. They worked with the doctors to make sure my family was treated with the best care with no money out of pocket to resolving the case in a timely manner and resolving the case with a tough insurance company. Thank you Guss and Team.

Stewart Guss
Getting in an auto accident is never planned nor easy to deal with but calling and getting such professional assistance definitly takes the edge off. I received a free in depth prefessional consultation, spoke with a investigator and was scheduled to start care in less than 24 hrs. Attorney Guss and his staff made my car accident experience much easier to handle. They listened, explained and arranged for my care with no out of pocket expenses on my part. The law firm is passionate about helping their clients and it shows in how I was treated. I would highly recommend their service to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney. Thanks Attorney Guss!

Excellent service
I was very pleased with Stewart Guss. My husband and I were very nervous and Stewart explained exactly what was going to happen. He walked us through it step-by-step and answered our many questions. He kept us up-to-date on what was going on with our case. He clearly discussed the good and the bad of taking the offered settlement, and gave us great advice.

Passionate attorney and staff!
Stewart's firm handled my husband's case. I was extremely nervous when we started the process but they immediately put us at ease. I could tell right away that everyone really cared about my husband and his claim. They were extremely informative and explained in detail of the process and what to expect. Everyone was very informative throughout the process and replied to my questions and concerns quickly. Stewart is very passionate and he truly made me feel we were his only clients he was working with. That spoke VOLUMES to me! I have already referred friends and even people I have just met to Stewart Guss.

Thank you
Mentally, I debated back and forth about whether to take the route of hiring a lawyer after my car accident in March of 2015 because my family discouraged me from trying, but now I am happy that I did. So if you are indecisive like me, I hope this review helps. I found Attorney Stewart Guss through avvo.com so the only information I knew about him was through the reviews I read, right here online (around April or May of 2015). Now that I think about it, I am not sure what made me choose him over the next lawyer but I decided to reach out to him and I heard back almost immediately. From there, Attorney Stewart Guss and his team got right to work on my case. Everyone was professional, throughout this process, from the beginning to the end. A couple of things to keep in mind... you have to be willing to do your part by going to treatment and, you have to be patient. Attorney Stewart Guss will get you what you ask for (if it is reasonable) in the end.

Personal injury Attorney | Apr 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer.I endorse this lawyer. This lawyer's contributions to this site are invaluable. I happily endorse this lawyer's work, ability and charity to those asking for advice. Further, I like to endorse good lawyers, because I find the AVVO rating system to be dishonest and corrupt. Frequently, disgruntled litigants on the opposing side (not your clients) will bash a lawyer on this site, pretending to be "your" client. When this situation is brought to the attention of AVVO, Avvo refuses to do anything to investigate and remove the false, slanderous "client" reviews. AVVO is a mean petty internet blog site trying to make money off of lawyers, and does not care if the public receives truthful information."

The results that he obtains on behalf of his clients are top-notch, but more important, he focus on providing to the client what it is that they want most, be it their day in court, or a negotiated resolution to a matter. Stewart Guss is an example of the best the profession has to offer."

Personal injury Attorney | Aug 16
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Stewart is, quite simply, an amazing laywer. I have referred clients to Stewart for over 15 years. Stewart's legal abilities are excellent - 10 out of 10. Not only is Stewart extremely well versed in personal injury law, the quality which really set Stewart apart from his peers is his compassion for his clients. Stewart actually cares. This concern shows both in his vigorous, agressive (and in my 15 years of experience - successful) representation of his clients, it also shows in his dedication to making sure that his clients are well informed about their cases and well advised when making decisions. I refer my my friends and family to Stewart when they need a personal injury lawyer."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I am impressed by the lawyer's answers to legal questions on AVVO."
Litigation Attorney | Dec 19
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"Stewart joined my law firm shortly after passing the bar exam. He was one of the best associates we ever had, and I wish he was still with the firm. That's the highest praise I have. Stewart is as smart as they come, and has that special knack for getting excellent results for his clients. I'm proud of how successful he has been since leaving my firm and starting his own practice, and it's always a pleasure to refer clients to Stewart; knowing he'll make them happy and make me look good in the process."
Lawsuits and disputes Attorney | Dec 20
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I know Stewart as a friend and colleague, although I could easily have written this endorsement as a satisfied client. Not long ago I asked for Stewart's help in a dispute with my homeowner's association. I had been working on a particular issue for close to a year, but with no satisfactory result. Stewart wrote a persuasive (and justifiably assertive) letter to my homeowner's association and, within hours, the association gave me everything that Stewart had requested. There is no higher compliment that an attorney can pay to a colleague, than entrusting the colleague with the attorney's own legal matter. It is my pleasure to endorse Stewart Guss, not only because he helped me, but because I know that Stewart treats all of his clients with the same prompt and personal attention that I received in my own situation."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 02
Relationship: Co-worker
"I've known Stewart about 10 years. He is a terrific negotiator and handles clients with compassion. I refer all my personal injury cases to him."
Personal injury Attorney | Nov 28
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"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."
