social-image-logo-og-300x300Guest and Gray is one of the fastest growing firms in North East Texas, and for good reason. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex boom has been ongoing for the better part of 30 years, and the boom is now making its way south and east of the metroplex, with areas such as Forney, Terrell, Canton, Greenville, Tyler, and many other parts of east Texas seeing the effect of people either running away from the growth (and incidentally causing growth) or moving into the areas from other parts of the country. In Forney, a large percentage of the people moving in are from out of state, such as California, who are running away from the high taxes in those places.

At Guest and Gray, we saw this coming years ago. Most of our attorneys and staff grew up in the east Texas area and we saw the neighborhoods going up and the roadways being built. We knew a long time ago that our areas would be next. So, we decided to commit to serving these areas and those who live here.

As personal injury lawyers, we knew that the increased growth would have a negative impact on our roadways in that it would increase traffic, and as a result, increase the frequency and severity of accidents. So, we developed a practice acutely designed to handle a wide range of personal injury cases, from standard negligence cases such as car accidents, to more complex ones like 18-wheeler accidents, wrongful death claims, and dog bite cases. Our firm has helped hundreds of East Texans recover top compensation for their injuries.
