Practice Overview:
Stewart J. Guss and his team of Houston personal injury attorneys and staff are committed to representing the rights of the injured. We relentlessly pursue justice for our clients, and will work tirelessly to obtain the highest possible recoveries on all of our client's cases. Our personal injury law firm always puts the client’s needs first. This includes providing clients with the information and assistance they need, and insuring that they can expect nothing but excellent service at all times. We work tirelessly to obtain the maximum possible recoveries for our clients while minimizing their stress. We consider each and every one our clients to be family and we treat them as such.

Our founder, Stewart J. Guss, has been practicing personal injury law based out of his Houston office since 1995. With a passion for justice, proven results, and a “Client First” mentality, Stewart has built a team of attorneys and staff that will do whatever it takes to strive for the best possible results for our clients. Because we focus on personal injury cases, our team has the knowledge, resources, and experience to handle a wide variety of personal injury matters, up to and including the most serious and complex catastrophic claims.

Stewart grew up in Houston, graduating Clear Lake High School, detouring to the University of Texas for his undergraduate degree before returning to Houston to attend the University of Houston Law Center – Bates College of Law. Because of his deep roots and commitment to the people of Houston, Stewart chose to base his practice here. Over the years, his commitment to excellence, reputation and results have allowed him to significantly expand his practice. The firm now employs over 60 people, including attorneys, paralegals, management, and support staff, and we are able to work with clients statewide and across the nation.

While our attorneys and legal professionals have the opportunity to work on a large docket of a wide variety of personal injury cases, there is one thing we all share: A complete commitment to put everything we have into every single case, and to ALWAYS put the client first. One of the most common complaints about personal injury law firms is that they don’t seem to care about their clients. We had one client tell us about the way she was treated by another law firm in town: “They treated me like I worked for them.” At our firm, we NEVER forget that we work for our CLIENTS. We have an absolute commitment to return every call or email within 24 hours, and we take a proactive approach to insuring that our client’s expectations of client service are always met and exceeded. Our goal is to deliver for our clients the best possible results on their cases and the best possible service during the process. We will change the way you think about lawyers.
