Many claim it. Few explain it.

In fact, this offer can be fraught with hidden costs and promises.
Allow us to explain how we are different and better; transparent and trusted.
Let’s compare.

Genuine expertise

Others

Many law firms don’t have a single accredited specialist in their team and only a very small number of experienced practitioners. Accreditation is priceless.

Travis Schultz & Partners

Travis Schultz is the only lawyer to be ranked by independent agency Doyles Guide as “leading” in Public Liability, Workers Compensation and Motor Vehicle Law in their 2019 National rankings. Michael Callow ranked Recommended in these same categories. Several of our lawyers are Queensland Law Society accredited specialists each having more than 25 years of experience in compensation and insurance law. Have peace of mind knowing you will be looked after by Travis’ handpicked team.

Lower fees and bigger settlements

Others

Under section 347 of the Legal Profession Act QLD (LPA), a law firm can charge fees of up to 50% of the net amount received by the client.  The majority of large firms will abide by these guidelines and charge the full 50%, meaning they walk away with up to half of the settlement amount. You deserve better.

Travis Schultz & Partners

We offer our clients the reassurance that our fees will never exceed one-third of the net settlement sum (and they’re usually much less). That means more money in your pocket. An Independent Cost Assessor assessed an itemised account from a Biglaw firm that we took over and found that had we been acting for them from the start, the legal fees would have been 20 – 40% lower on our fee structure.

No costs along the way

Others

Most firms either make clients pay outlays as they go, or sign them up to expensive third party ‘litigation lending’ arrangements. Clients can pay interest rates as high as 25%-30%. Other firms will pay outlays for their clients yet will charge interest on top. This all adds to their already high professional and uplift fees.

Travis Schultz & Partners

We don’t want you worrying about cost, so we pay all of the out-of-pocket expenses along the way, excluding your personal travel costs. We never charge you an additional fee for covering these expenses. At the end of the process, you will only be invoiced for the expenses themselves.

Our personal attention

Others

Some Queensland law firms can make their clients feel like they need to earn the right to speak to their lawyer by phone. Clients leave messages for their lawyers that often don’t get through or take a long while to answer.

Travis Schultz & Partners

We genuinely care about people not shareholder profits. We provide you with a direct phone number to your lawyer. We ensure you feel heard and understood.

No Win / No Fee

Others

Most firms charge an ‘uplift fee’. This is a loading on top of their standard fee for undertaking a No Win / No Fee claim. In Queensland, this is typically 25% and the maximum permitted under Queensland Law. This is on top of their often very high professional fees. We can do better than that for you. We want you to receive the Lion’s Share of your claim.

Travis Schultz & Partners

We are happy to help you make a claim on a No Win / No Fee basis. No interest, no uplift fees, no litigation lending arrangements and no surprises. We never charge any additional fees for taking on that risk, and this sets us apart from other law firms. We are only paid upon successful conclusion of a claim.
