Roy L. Stacy has been a Texas trial lawyer for more than forty years. He founded Stacy | Conder | Allen LLP to build a law firm where dedicated attorneys could focus more on the practice of law. The firm he created enjoys a reputation for talented and experienced attorneys who represent clients with the utmost integrity. Most of Roy’s clients have been with him for decades, a testament to his ability to develop valued relationships that truly meet their needs time and again.
“I didn’t know anyone who was a lawyer when I was growing up, except the ones I saw on TV, so I went to law school thinking I might go into politics or become a judge. But once I started trying cases, I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I’m still practicing law for one reason – I love doing it,” says Roy Stacy, founding partner of Stacy | Conder | Allen LLP. “We have employees and clients who have been with us for years and years. It’s not like that at every firm – we treat people well and I think that makes this a nice place to work and a good firm to do business with.”
Roy’s practice includes all types of insurance defense litigation, commercial litigation and malpractice litigation. He has represented countless insurance carriers and their insureds in state and federal courts across Texas since 1974, as well as several neighboring state courts. He defends companies involved in litigation stemming from trucking and transportation accidents, construction defects and personal injury lawsuits involving claims of negligence or other liability.
In addition, Roy provides professional malpractice defense to attorneys and other non-medical professionals in negligence and malpractice claims, including claims for misrepresentation and breach of fiduciary duty. Roy’s practice also includes extensive experience representing insurance companies and agencies in first party bad faith cases, and coverage disputes. In one notable case, Roy successfully represented an insurance agency client in litigation alleging fraud and breach of fiduciary duty.
Roy has served as appellate counsel in the Texas Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeal for the Fifth Circuit. He is certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Personal Injury Trial Law.
