“Tray” Gober has always been driven to represent injured clients, “When I was 10 years old my family was hit by a second time drunk driver. Going through that process convinced me that I wanted to help others needlessly hurt by the careless and reckless acts of others.” Tray has spent his career defending people injured by the negligence of others. He represents people involved in car accidents, truck accidents, premises liability, and products liability. Tray is especially passionate in representing people who were injured in drunk driving accidents, as well as bicyclists and motorcyclists involved in accidents with vehicles.
While Tray understands the value of negotiation, he will not hesitate to stand up for a client’s rights and take a case to trial, “You need only sit outside my office door while I’m negotiating with an insurance adjuster to know that I refuse to play games and will zealously advocate for my clients, it doesn’t matter if it is $200 or $200,000 I fight for every penny owed.” His passion and zealous advocacy for his clients have earned him the respect of defense counsel, insurance companies, and former clients alike. In fact, many of his former clients refer him cases when someone they know gets injured.
After graduating from Baylor Law School with honors Tray immediately began taking high-stakes cases to trial which has given him a favorable reputation. In 2004 Tray lost his fiancé due to medical malpractice. This loss gave Tray an insight into the suffering of his clients and gives a common ground on which he can connect on a personal level, “Representing injury clients is about so much more than the money value of the case. No amount of money will be worth what has been taken. I start with the human and emotional value and build from there to seek a just amount.”
