Protecting families by requiring accountability

“We live in an imperfect world, but we should still avoid harming others and compensate the injured when mistakes are made.”

Guy Choate would enjoy a world where his specialized legal skills were not needed. In a world without personal injuries, there would be no need for personal injury attorneys.

Guy works for that day, but he knows that unless corporations, insurance companies and truckers are held accountable for their actions, our communities will never be safe. So he, along with the other partners at Webb, Stokes and Sparks, insists on bringing wrongdoers to justice to make the roads and homes safer for Texas families.

While an injury-free future is unlikely, it is clear accidents and injuries are reduced when those responsible must pay for the harm they inflict. Guy brings uncompromising character, determination and skill to each case. It is an issue of basic fairness for Guy.

Respected statewide for his work with the State Bar on issues such as personal injury law and ethics, Guy is a regular speaker at State Bar continuing education programs. Guy was president of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association during the 2005 Legislative Session.
