Mr. Shultz attended law school at the University of Arizona where he was a member of the Board of Editors for the Arizona Law Review. After graduation in 1966, he began his practice in insurance defense, working for one of the most recognized firms in this field in the state of Arizona. Mr. Shultz handled an extraordinarily high caseload defending suits involving personal injury, product liability, wrongful death, medical malpractice, property damage and other tortious acts.

Mr. Shultz rose to the rank of Senior Partner in the firm and was one of its most experienced trial lawyers defending Fortune 500 companies and Arizona clients in cases including complex multi-million dollar defective product claims. The experience he gained in learning how insurance companies and manufactures defend lawsuits has proven to be an invaluable asset in connection with his representing plaintiffs against these entities.

Mr. Shultz is a Certified Specialist (Injury and Wrongful Death Litigation) by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization and is a Board Certified Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy.

Mr. Shultz was elected to the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association Board of Directors in 1991 and continued to serve on the board until 2006. He was also elected to the American Association for Justice Board of Governors where he served from 1994 until 2006.

Mr. Shultz has received an "AV� from the worldwide legal directory, Martindale-Hubble, signifying that he has demonstrated the highest level of legal proficiency and ethical standards in his profession - a very distinguished accomplishment. An "AV" rating is awarded to only a small percentage of attorneys and is based on the confidential opinions of peer attorneys and members of the judiciary.

In 2008 and 2009 Mr. Shultz was listed in the Super Lawyers of the Southwest. Mr. Shultz also earned membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, whose membership is limited to attorneys, who have won million and multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements. He is a Senior Counsel in The College of Master Advocates and Barristers and is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates.

Mr. Shultz limits his practice to personal injury, wrongful death, product liability (including defective automobiles and tires), accidents (including trucking, automobile and motorcycle) and medical malpractice on behalf of injured individuals.
