Robert G. Schultz


30 years of specializing in motor vehicle accidents and catastrophic injuries.

For 30 years, Bob has worked on cases involving serious motor vehicle accidents and catastrophic injuries. He has worked extensively for insurers and thoroughly understands how cases are evaluated and resolved. In those cases where a fair settlement cannot be achieved, he is honored to pursue justice through the courts at trial.

Bob has served as President of the Benton and Franklin County Bar Association. He also serves as a Judge Pro Tempore for the Benton and Franklin County Superior Courts.

In addition, Bob has served on the Benton-Franklin Legal Aid (BFLA) board since 1997 and as President 2006-2009. BFLA utilizes pro bono attorneys to assist the poor of our community who have nowhere else to turn. He has been honored by the Desert Bar Association for a program presentation relating to civil legal aid for the indigent.

Bob also taught a fifth-grade Junior Achievement course and volunteers each year as a judge for High School students competing in the "We the People" program. He also served on the Mid Columbia Library Board of Trustees for twenty years (1987-2007). Mid-Columbia Library is a system of 11 libraries serving Benton and Franklin counties. During his tenure as Board Chair, the libraries became automated, new branches were built in Kennewick and West Richland, and the existing Pasco and Kennewick branches were remodeled. In 2008, he was appointed as the first-ever honorary trustee.

Many people with legal problems first encounter financial difficulty.
