"I truly appreciate the service of Schultz & Myers. Josh Myers was very concerned about my injuries as well as my well being. He kept me posted via email and phone calls. He and his team made me feel like my case was of high importance and it never seemed that they were in it for the money. If I had to choose a lawyer/law firm again or recommend to others, Schultz & Myers would be my first choice. God Bless!

Throughout his career, Josh Myers has devoted 100% of his time to fighting for injury victims. This intense focus on injury law as the foundation which has led to his successes. In just the past several years alone, he has helped obtain tens of millions of dollars in settlements and judgments.

In particular, his practice specifically focuses on two areas – commercial motor vehicle collisions (tractor-trailers) and insurance litigation such as bad faith and coverage determinations. Given his notoriety in these areas, the Missouri Bar Association has asked him to train other lawyers on how to properly investigate and litigate commercial motor vehicle cases.

In 2010, the Missouri Lawyers Weekly named him as one of Missouri’s “Up & Coming Lawyers”. He was later honored by Missouri Lawyer’s Weekly as on of the “Winningest Lawyers” based upon his trial results.From 2010 – 2013, he was recognized by Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star”.

From 2014 through present, he has been honored annually as a “Super Lawyer”.

In 2018, he was named as one of the “Best Lawyers in America” by U.S. News and World Report in the field of Insurance Litigation.

A native of Missouri, he attended Missouri State University (Southwest Missouri State University) where he earned his degree in Political Science and a minor in Spanish. Upon graduation, he was accepted into the nationally renowned law program at Washington University in St. Louis. However, he was not just another face in the crowd. While there, he was named the Myron Gollub Scholar and invited for induction into Who’s Who Among American Law Students.

During his final year of law school, Josh was accepted into the school’s nationally recognized mock trial team where he studied trial skills under St. Louis City Judge David Mason. Due to his outstanding trial skills, he was named as a member of The Order of the Barristers.

Josh Myers is a recognized leader in tractor-trailer accident cases. On more than one occasion, Josh Myers has been requested by the Missouri Bar as a lecturer for other attorneys handling personal injury claims involving tractor-trailers.

Josh uses his own expertise to help attorneys–even those who do not work at his law firm–in maximizing settlements and getting adequate compensation for their potential clients.

In his own law firm, Josh often takes complex cases involving insurance disputes such as insurance bad faith and vexatious refusal to pay claims. When the insurance company is not offering a fair amount, Josh uses his creativity and expertise in contract interpretation including stacking and resolving insurance ambiguities.

Mr. Myers has been honored with induction into the National Trial Lawyers Association, a prestigious organization limited to the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in each state. He has also been honored with an AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell which represents the highest rating for both legal ability and ethical standards.
