Stephen R. Schultz

Listed in Best Lawyers since 2016

I made the decision to dedicate my life to serving victims of personal injury in my early twenties after being seriously injured in a car accident. My life was literally turned upside down.  I was hospitalized for days and unable to walk for months. To make matters worse, the insurance company for the reckless driver tried to take advantage of me. They would not act fairly.  I didn’t know who to trust with my claim. On top of all this financial stress, I was trying to heal physically.

I reflect upon this experience daily in my law practice. I remember what it was like to not know what to do or where to turn.  I can empathize with my clients on a personal level that other lawyers simply cannot relate to. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, I can truly say I understand, I’ve been there, and I will advocate for you in the pursuit of justice.  

At the end of the day, one of the most rewarding compliments I receive from my clients is that they trust and value me both as their lawyer and their friend. That is why I provide every single client my personal cell phone number, and instructions to call day or night in the event of an emergency.

Additional Information

Practice Areas

Auto Accidents

Traffic accidents can be devastating, but insurance companies will try to downplay your injury and property damage claims. NEVER give a recorded statement to an at-fault driver's insurance company.

Truck Accidents

When you’ve been injured in a truck accident, you need an attorney who is well-versed in both personal injury litigation and the complex regulations of the trucking industry.

Workers compensation

It’s important to understand that workers’ compensation laws can vary greatly from state to state. Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas each have a unique set of laws regarding employees who have been injured on the job.

Dog Bites

Dog bites and animal attacks account for more than a third of all homeowners’ insurance liability claims. It is primarily the dog owner’s responsibility to take precautions when their dog is around humans—especially children.

None of the Above?

In addition to the practice areas listed above, we have experience with traumatic brain injury victims, jones act claims, dram shop claims, and insurance bad faith claims. If your claim doesn't fall squarely into one of these categories, just give us a call. It's always free to talk.

Risk Free Fee Guarantee

One the biggest concerns of hiring any experienced personal injury lawyer is how much it is going to cost. Personal injury lawsuits are extremely expensive and most victims don’t want the added financial stress of spending tens of thousands of dollars in up-front “lawyer retainers” or “case expenses.”

At Schultz & Myers, we never charge attorney fees unless we are successful in winning your case! In addition, we will advance all of the case expenses necessary to win your case. These expenses can range from a few hundred dollars in smaller cases to several hundred thousand dollars in complex cases.
