Bill Voss is a distinguished policyholder advocate based in The Woodlands, Texas. With more than twelve years of experience as a large loss policyholder attorney, Mr. Voss specializes in everything from commercial and business insurance litigation to insurance fraud litigation, commercial insurance claims, church insurance claims, industrial insurance claims, school district insurance claims, shopping mall insurance claims, and apartment insurance claims. He is the founding member and owner of The Voss Law Firm, P.C. where he was recently named one of the country’s top trial lawyers.
Motivated by the potential to be a force for positive change in the world, Voss was interested in law at a young age. As he tells it:
I wanted to be the conduit by which the everyday person could have a voice against billion-dollar conglomerates. I knew that as a lawyer I would be able to facilitate real change on behalf of everyday working people.
As a child, Voss traveled with his family to Saudi Arabia for his father’s work. Spending so much time in a foreign place broadened his perspective and inspired him to work towards a career that would help all people to be heard. With his heart set on being an advocate for the little guy, Voss worked to get his law degree. After graduating in 2004, he founded The Voss Law Firm, P.C. where he quickly established himself as a rising star in the field of large loss insurance claim litigation. Today, he has been named a Super Lawyer by his peers and is considered to be one of the Top 10 Trial Lawyers in America.
True passion and advocacy for positive change are what set Mr. Voss apart from his colleagues. He is galvanized by challenge and thrives in the face of conflict with the multibillion-dollar conglomerates and insurance corporations he works against on a daily basis. In an effort to inform and educate his community, Voss has published several books, including titles such as Disputes With Your Insurance Companies – What All Consumers Need to Know, and Learn the Basics of Commercial Insurance and Protect Your Business.
His commitment to staying involved and present in the lives of people for whom he advocates so fiercely pays off. He has a reputation for stellar client service and sets the industry standard for expertise in his particular niche. With such a particular specialization, focusing not only on insurance claims but specifically on policyholder advocacy on a large-loss basis, Voss understands the importance of continuing to hone his knowledge base and litigation skills.
As a leader in his field, Voss pays close attention to prevailing trends in his industry. Lately, he has been focusing on large loss insurance claims involving school districts throughout the South, along with several church claims. He recently noted:
It still amazes me that these billion-dollar insurance companies never fail to discriminate. It doesn’t matter if you’re an eighty-year-old grandmother or a large multi-district school system, or even a megachurch leading faith worship for thousands, these insurance companies will stop at nothing to consistently deny, delay or underpay - just to save a dollar.
With more than a decade of experience, Voss shows no signs of slowing down. His firm is growing rapidly, and he has set his sights on handling half a billion dollars in large-loss claims over the next two to five years. When he’s not practicing law, Voss loves to bluewater fish and spend time with his wife and two children.
