They're knowledgeable, helpful and will work hard on your behalf.

I worked with Ben Melnick and he was so incredibly helpful through would could have been a very difficult experience. It was still difficult, but I felt cared for through the entire process.

My case wasn't a "sexy" one; I didn't have any broken bones and my airbags didn't go off. Because of that, it was a fight to get a settlement. The collision I was in impacted every area of my life. Everything changed and it was a lot to navigate. Ben was there with me every step of the way. He listened to me, he never made me feel stupid or like I was wasting his time. It felt like he really cared about me, not just as a case but as a person. And that makes a huge difference when you're in any kind of legal situation.

He stuck with me, encouraged me and offered great advice. I'm glad we didn't have to go to trial, but I honestly wish I could have seen him in action because the passion he showed through the deposition process was incredible. He isn't the type to sit back and let things happen. He goes after what's right and does so eloquently.

His team was also helpful and I felt safe working with this firm. I absolutely recommend using them! They're knowledgeable, helpful and will work hard on your behalf.

The at-fault driver's insurance would not work with me

When I first had my accident, I was lost on what to do. The at-fault driver's insurance would not work with me. I found Schauermann Thayer on my google search. Scott Staples from the start put everything at ease for me and took away all the stress this accident was causing. In the end Scott's hard work and knowledge of the Law helped me get what I needed. I highly recommend Scott for any needs you may have concerning accidents,

Brad made this process as smooth and easy as possible

I was in car accident 2 years ago and was injured. It was my first accident and I’m so glad I hired Brad. He and Katie helped me through every step of the way. Brad made this process as smooth and easy as possible. I can never thank him and Katie enough for helping through this hard time. I highly recommend Brad. And if I ever need a personal injury lawyer again, hopefully I won’t, but if I did, I’ll be calling Brad again. Thank you.

This law firm treats you like family

This law firm treats you like family. Their caring nature and high standard of professionalism is above reproach. Our case was complicated and their communication was stellar throughout.

They did everything they could do to get us the maximum achievable compensation in our case.

Schauermann Thayer are in my opinion the best, they made us feel more like family and not just another client. We believe they did everything they could do to get us the maximum achievable compensation in our case. We would highly recommend them, they are professional, courteous, compassionate and reasonable. They took the time to explain the proceedings and terminology to us where we were not uncomfortable during depositions and litigation. We specifically dealt with Mr. Schauermann and Mr. Thayer, both of these men I would highly recommend.

They did all the work and helped me take time to heal.

After a very upsetting experience I need a lot of guidance in injury related law. The team of professionals at this firm were very helpful and knowledgeable. They took a large loan off my mind. They did all the work and helped me take time to heal. Although I never wish to need them again, I would put myself in their hands gladly. I would also recommend both Bill Thayer to any friend in need of a team with their skills.

My bills came to $400,000 and I was hospitalized for 28 days

I was in a motor vehicle collision and nearly lost my life. My bills came to ~$400,000 and I was hospitalized for 28 days. I had only VA coverage and the at-fault driver's insurance couldn't cover the costs. Scott Edwards and his team represented me and worked with the insurance companies and the VA. It took a long while (because my situation was complicated, and the wheels of government turn slowly), but in the end my hospital debt was completely cleared. Not only that, but I was also fortunate enough to recover a large portion of the insurance money to boot. I want to say thank you to Scott and his team for working diligently on my case for so long. You helped my step out of all of this with cash in pocket, instead of a bankruptcy. Forever indebted and grateful

It was a long process but at no point did I feel shuffled to the bottom

I don't often post reviews but I felt this warranted one! I was in an auto accident with my three young children and was referred by our chiropractor to Scott Staples for an Attorney to represent me and help settle the auto claim. I have never had a lawyer before and was uncertain whether it was necessary to have one and whether it would be worth it in the end. I did call a few other attorney's and just got a bad feeling when talking to them. When I contacted Scott immediately it was a different feeling altogether. I still wasn't entirely sure but let me tell you I was thankful over and over again that I did go this route. There were complications with the medical bills getting paid by my auto insurance and Scott's office was able to call and handle all the different things that would have meant alot of time on the phone for me and because they understood the process were able to work more effectively with both the insurance company and medical providers. This was a nightmare for me that I did not have to deal with on top of getting me and my three kids to appointments etc. It was a long process but at no point did I feel shuffled to the bottom Scott was on top of everything and was very responsive to all my questions or concerns. I can't say enough of what a wonderful experience it was I would highly recommend him to anyone reading this. Scott was a wonderful person to work with and has exceptional integrity. I also through other parties during the process received positive comments as to the firms credibility and good report which reaffirmed that I had made a good choice. Thank you Scott and I wish you much success!

From the very 1st phone until the day the case was resolved they were amazing.

I’d like to thank Bill Thayer and their firm for representing me in a very difficult and emotional case. From the very 1st phone call I made to them until the day the case was resolved they were amazing. One of the many reasons I was impressed with them was they always had time for me when I had any questions or concerns. The communication was excellent even with the 3 hour time difference, with me on the East Coast and them on the West Coast. I feel very blessed to have found them and will never forget how kind and sincere they were to me.

What they initially offered to settle would not have even covered my expenses.

Scott Edwards represented me against my insurance company after being in a car on bike accident. I suffered substantial injuries that my insurance company grossly minimized. What they initially offered to settle would not have covered my expenses. Scott substantiated my claim and convinced my insurance company to cover my losses. I particularly appreciate Scott's help in my efforts to honestly and openly build my case and in being thorough and thoughtful. Because of his great work, my insurance company settled before arbitration.  I was somewhat reluctant to retain a lawyer to battle with my insurance company but not anymore. I have a better understanding of how really difficult it is to take on even a good insurance company on your own. I am glad i didn't and certainly wouldn't if this happened again.

They are not your typical money chasing firm. Call and get a consult

I was in what was determined to be 2 accidents. Never having been in an accident in over 20 years of driving, I was stressed, nervous, and physically and emotionally injured. On the advice of our family lawyer I contacted Schauermann Thayer. Ben Melnick took on my case. He was honest, caring, compassionate, and up front from the very beginning. He worked tirelessly for almost a year for me. He made sure to communicate with me, in terms I could understand, every step of the way. He stayed in constant contact through mail, phone calls, texts, and email. His knowledge and skill in the field are unmatched. I was always comfortable with Ben. Anytime he called or contacted me, his first questions were always how I was doing, not only physically with my injuries, but my mental and emotional well being as well. This firm is not your typical firm. They truly want the best outcome for their clients and will work day and night to get you the optimal result. Ben made an extremely stressful and painful time in my life bearable. He took so much stress off of me and did all the hard work on my behalf. I never had to worry about anything. I will forever be grateful to Ben Melnick and the entire team at Schauermann Thayer. They have my utmost gratitude and respect and I would choose them again anytime and I highly recommend them to anyone in need of their services. In addition, if you are like me, and aren't sure you even need representation, just give them a call. They will be 100% honest with you, if you don't need their services, they will tell you. They are not your typical money chasing firm. Call and get a consult.

I felt supported and respected at every step of the way.

I worked mostly with Brad Thayer, but everyone at Shauermann Thayer (Ben and Bill) was a pleasure to work with. All communications were prompt and respectful, with clear directions on next steps and what to expect. My case dealt with emotionally sensitive issues (severe pelvic/pubic injuries) and required visits with several specialists to examine those injuries and evaluate the future impact on my life. I felt supported and respected at every step of the way. Brad and the team made this difficult process as smooth as possible. I highly recommend Shauermann Thayer!

They are timely, reliable and will handle all your needs and then some

They are absolutely awesome. Incredible knowledge base to draw from due to their tenure in the field. I have been on both sides of the table. I worked as an adjuster and interacted with their firm multiple times. They are professional, courtesy and knowledgeable. They have also represented me for my own injury claim. They are timely, reliable and will handle all your needs and then some. I personally worked with Bill Thayer for my case.

Greatest team at Schauermann Thayer!

I appreciate the level of care and attention that they have given me. Now that my case is finished, I’d like to provide an update. Not only did Scott Edwards go above and beyond in my opinion to learn my story and what was important to me, but was a calming presence when going to arbitration. Greatest team at Schauermann Thayer!

My case is over and I couldn't be happier with the outcome

I am writing this review because Ben was truly incredible as my attorney. The start of my case was tough. We had to fight to even get the girls name. He did that. I was in such pain and he was there talking to me and fighting for me more than I would have ever expected. Little did we know it would take a long time to finally settle and get what I deserved out of the case for my pain and suffering. I would like to tell anyone needing a great attorney to fight for them to consider Ben and his team. My case is over and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. If I ever need services like his I will call him first before anyone else and refer everyone to him. Thank you Ben. You went above and beyond for me. I will never forget it.

I'm very grateful to Brad Thayer for his excellent help and recommend him highly

I was attacked and bitten by a dog. Someone recommended that I call Schauermann Thayer. I spoke with Brad Thayer. After showing him what had happened to me I entrusted the problem to him to get all the medical bills and other problems resolved. Brad kept me well informed during the process. And, he got all my legal problems resolved without difficulties or delays. I'm very grateful to Brad Thayer for his excellent help and recommend him highly.

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I met with Scott Edwards the same day I called to schedule an appointment. I was looking for an attorney for a auto accident I was involved in. Scott was very welcoming and kind. We decided that my accident was probably too small to justify an attorney but he gave me some very good advice. I would recommend Scott for your personal injury needs.
My sister in law used Craig Schauermann several years ago and she was very pleased with his representation.
You need a good attorney to represent you? This office will take really good care of you.
