Endorsed for Ethical Standing
Stuart is one of the best attorneys I know. He may be the absolute best workers' comp attorney in the State of Texas. He is well respected because he has earned it. He wrote a treatise on Texas workers' comp law that is top notch and better than anything else in the market. He sees the issues from all sides and is open minded. In a business of rote responses to every day happenings, that makes him highly effective. He gives his best every time. He has definitely earned my respect.
