A reliable and simple way of working
Travis Schultz & Partners is a law firm like no other. Putting people before profit, their mission is to serve clients, maximise their claims and ensure that they receive the Lion’s share of their settlements.
Lawyers Travis Schultz and Michael Callow, both Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialists in personal Injury law, and with a combined tally of more than 50 years of experience under their belts, officially launched in 2018 as Travis Schultz Law (now Travis Schultz & Partners). They officiated their journey with only three support staff members. Since then, the firm has expanded with more than 20 employees and has built a stellar reputation in their community for providing cutting edge expertise without the hefty price tag. The team overlooks clients across Queensland with offices on the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Voice technology from the beginning
Travis Schultz, Managing Partner, has been a Philips SpeechLive user from 2017, predating the founding of his own law firm. He explained that prior to Travis Schultz & Partners, he was associated with a larger law firm. When he decided to leave and start his own law practice, he had to serve a non-complete clause as part of his agreement. He spent doing consultancy work during those time. Travis said, “In 2017 I required secretarial and administrative support, and I also needed to dictate because of the work that I was doing, so I explored a number of options and settled on SpeechLive.”
Over time, as the firm grew, so did the number of SpeechLive subscriptions in parallel with a combination of authors and support staff using the cloud solution. The authors dictate their court documents, advice, file notes and other correspondences using their dictaphones or smartphones and sends them across to their support staff for transcribing those documents. When asked whether Travis actively directs his staffs in using the solution he responded, “Even new lawyers and staff who joined our team who were not familiar with the system and have not used it in the past were able to quickly adapt to it, because it’s simple and user-friendly. We had no difficulty in people picking it up and being efficient at its use within a very short period of time.”
We found it has been really useful to have a reliable system like SpeechLive that can be accessed from anywhere, is convenient and doesn’t break down.
