Championing for the individual

“Insurance companies and corporations have plenty of lawyers on their sides. We are the attorneys who stand up for the individual.”

Given Sam Sparks' stature, it is no surprise he played college football or that he is an imposing presence in the courtroom and at the negotiating table.

The most substantial part of Sam's character, however, has always been the size of his heart. In fact, Sam's concern for other people is the reason he is a personal injury attorney.

When the strong injure the weak or greed overcomes judgment, Sam takes it personally, and he champions justice with an effectiveness that earns him a statewide reputation.

A member of the firm since 1972, Sam takes pride in the responsive, teamwork approach achieved at Webb, Stokes and Sparks, as well as in the record of success the firm has achieved during its more than 50 years of practice. The firm’s goal of obtaining justice and fair treatment for the injured continues to fuel Sam’s passion for practicing personal injury law today.

Sam is also an involved parent, a past member of the San Angelo Independent School District board of trustees and an avid fisherman.
