February 2012 brings with it this year's Best Lawyers in St. Louis edition, which features some of the top personal injury attorneys in the region. Once again, Stephen Schultz was featured for providing dedicated legal representation to injury victims and the surviving families of wrongful death claims. This marks the 5th consecutive year for Schultz to be featured in the
Best Lawyers edition of one of the area's most recognized magazines. He is a founding partner and managing director of Schultz Legal Group. With law offices in Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas, his
accident injury lawyers are nationally recognized in various areas of complex injury claims, especially
catastrophic tractor-trailer accidents involving permanent injury such as TBI (traumatic brain injury).
Schultz is a native of St. Louis and has handled many high-profile cases throughout the state. Several of these cases, including dram shop claims, trucking accidents, and wrongful death claims, have been picked up by national news organizations. Schultz shys from the public spotlight however, and prefers to keep to himself, even when pressured by writers and newspapers for interviews to discuss his victories in the courts.
His law firm continues to fight for victims of negligence. Whether the defendant is a multi-billion dollar insurance company, trucking company, pharmaceutical drug manufacturer, automobile maker, or drunk driver, the firm provides individual personal service to each and every client. The business model of the law firm has never been to accept every single case that comes through the door. Schultz and his lawyers select new cases based upon a pledge to provide each client with the focus and personal attention that most injury lawyers fail to provide. In fact, the primary complaint with clients of other "by the numbers" law firms is that they never hear from their attorney, have no idea what is going on with their case, and struggle to get return phone calls within the same week.
Part of the reason Stephen Schultz has been such a successful attorney is that he works closely with each client. This means constant communication, regular updates, and a bond that lasts well after the case has been resolved. Most of his new clients are referred by past clients who were pleased with the level of legal representation provided and ultimately, a successful outcome.
As a St. Louis personal injury attorney, you must be willing to provide top notch legal advice, followed by the powerful advocacy necessary to win in today's tort-reform world, where the insurance companys and negligent corporations spend millions of dollars to lobby in favor of limiting the rights of innocent injury victims. It really is sad. In many cases, it is hard to get a fair shake at compensation when you have jurors that have been brainwashed by inaccurate, false, and misleading information provided by insurance company lobbyists.
Stephen Schultz will continue to provide free consultations to victims and their families, and aggressive legal representation for each client. To learn more about Stephen and his law firm philosophy, visit www.schultzlegalgroup.com, or call his office for immediate assistance.
