Spinning circle Big letter B

I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I come from two hard-working parents who were also born and raised here in St. Louis. In my early twenties, I was involved in a serious motor vehicle crash that left me unable to walk for several months. This experience was life-changing in every sense of the term. I learned first-hand how insurance companies could take advantage of someone without a law degree. But there was some good that came out of it - ultimately this was the event that sent me on a path to law school and the formation of one of the most respected plaintiff personal injury law firms in the midwest - Schultz Myers personal injury lawyers.

Since forming Schultz Myers personal injury lawyers over a decade ago, I have devoted my career to assisting victims of serious injury and accidental death. Each day, I stand shoulder to shoulder with injured clients, and their families, against some of the most powerful insurance companies and corporations in the United States. I enjoy a good fight and have come to be recognized by my peers for obtaining some of the largest settlements and verdicts in Missouri and Illinois.

For the past several years, my primary focus has been on complex commercial motor vehicle litigation. These types of collisions typically cause catastrophic injuries or death to motorists in smaller vehicles. To that end, I have litigated over 100 cases involving tractor-trailers and other commercial motor vehicles that have caused great harm or death to clients of our law firm. Along the way, I have become a mentor to many other lawyers looking to learn more about this complicated area of personal injury law. I am proud to say that Schultz Myers personal injury lawyers get cases from lawyers all over the country who seek us out to act as co-counsel on their injury cases involving heavy trucks. Over the years I have handled commercial motor vehicle accident cases in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Texas, and beyond.

If you have a question about the laws that govern trucking companies and truck drivers, I have the answer. We are available 24/7 at (314) 444-4444 and at Schultz Myers Personal Injury Lawyers.
