Missouri & Illinois Injury Law Firm Overview
About our Personal Injury Law Firm
If you or a loved one has suffered as the result of another’s negligence or recklessness, that person should be held legally accountable. That is where a skilled personal injury attorney comes in. With the help of an experienced attorney from our office, you have a much better chance of receiving compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain & suffering.
Insurance companies have aggressive attorneys working for them, and rest assured they are working hard to minimize your chances of fair compensation. Shouldn't you have an attorney on your side?
We know what it is like to be seriously injured and unsure who to turn to for legal guidance. In fact, our founding partner was badly hurt in an accident and experienced unfair treatment by the insurance industry first-hand. This unpleasant and intimidating experience is the primary reason why this law firm was formed. We stand shoulder to shoulder with each client throughout the entire case. Unlike other law firms that treat clients as numbers, each injury case at Schultz Legal Group is treated like the most important case the firm has.
Firm Philosophy - All About Personal Attention
Your injury case is our top priority! We select each case carefully so that the caseload remains manageable and each client gets one-on-one focused attention. We take over all aspects of your case so that the only thing you have to concern yourself with is healing. We maintain a close working relationship with each client, keeping them informed and updated throughout the entire process.Clients are never treated as just another "number" at our office! Our firm is committed to a team approach that involves attorney, staff, and client working together closely from start to finish. The end result is that our clients’ best interests remain first and maximum compensation is obtained.
Our attorneys do something that frightens most injury law firms: we give each client our personal cellular and home telephone numbers. Why? Because our lawyers are accountable to each client, day or night. Many prospective clients come to our firm when they become dissatisfied with a non-responsive lawyer. A common theme from these new clients is "I haven't heard from my lawyer in 3 months and he won't return my calls." That will never happen at our office. As your attorney, we pledge to each client that the only time we will not answer a cell phone is when attending a court proceeding or mediation. And all calls are returned within 24 hours, no exceptions.
St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyer Stephen Schultz
St. Louis accident attorney Stephen Schultz and the talented attorneys in his office
only represent injury victims. We are recognized by our peers as being 'specialists' in this area of law. Accordingly, many law firms throughout the country refer their injured clients to our office for representation. We have been featured in the "Best Lawyers in St. Louis" edition of
St. Louis Magazine for a 5th consecutive year for serious injury and
wrongful death litigation. Our founding partners are also recognized by the American Trial Lawyers Association as two of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers and are among the elite 1% of U.S. trial attorneys accepted into both the Million-Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Mr. Schultz possesses an AV-Preeminent Lawyer peer-review rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating available for lawyers. An AV-Preeminent peer-review rating is a distinct honor, as it is based on recognition by other lawyers across the country. Fewer than 10% of lawyers in Missouri have an AV rating.
Each lawyer at Schultz Legal Group has achieved numerous accolades and industry recognition for legal excellence. It is a requirement for each of our attorneys to undergo intense ongoing training in all aspects of trial practice and strategy. We are members of some of the most prestigious trial organizations in the country, an accomplishment met with hard work and dedication to protecting the rights of injured victims of negligence.
Our St. Louis-based personal injury lawyers represent all types of personal injury claims throughout all of Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas. Being located in St. Louis, Missouri does not stop our attorneys from handling personal injury cases throughout all of Missouri and Illinois. We handle cases in rural areas well outside of metropolitan St. Louis. In fact, our attorneys frequently travel to a client’s home to meet face-to-face for a consultation. We understand that traveling to St. Louis may be impractical or impossible for prospective clients. Here are just a few of the counties our law offices have litigated in:
Cape Girardeau County,
New Madrid County,
Saint Charles County,
Saint Clair County,
Saint Francois County,
Saint Louis City,
Sainte Genevieve County,
Washington County, and
Wright County. If you are located in a rural location, please contact our office to make arrangements for a home consultation with one of our attorneys.
Community Support & Charity Work
As lawyers, we are in a position of privilege. Along with that privilege should be a commitment to community support. Our goal as dedicated personal injury lawyers is to create a safer community for our families. But we don't stop there. Our law firm is a supporter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Foundation for Children with Cancer, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and other charitable organizations. Giving back to our community, both financially and in service, is an integral part of our firm philosophy.
