Greg Spinda (pictured) has joined the firm’s Sunshine Coast team, following over five years at national plaintiff firm Maurice Blackburn, where he was a principal.

Mr Spinda has worked as a personal injuries lawyer since 2005, and he said his desire to help people who find themselves in challenging circumstances started at a young age.

“I was six years old when my family and I came to Australia as refugees to escape the communist regime in Hungary — it was very challenging, but we were welcomed with open arms,” he explained.


“I come from a very tight-knit family, and what was valued most — and what my grandparents constantly taught me — was that if you have the opportunity, you should always help build up others and your community.

“Since I began in my career, I knew that supporting clients and making a real difference to the lives of everyday people was an important priority for me. What I enjoy most is really getting to know my clients — truly listening to them and understanding how they have been impacted.

“I’m not a doctor, and I can’t heal wounds, but in my own way, as a lawyer, I will do what I can to ensure that when people are wronged, they get rehabilitation funded and compensation so that at least the financial stresses of suffering an injury are not preventing their recovery.

“I am excited to be achieving this as part of the TSP team given the firm’s solid reputation amongst not just plaintiff lawyers, but defendant lawyers and insurers. It is a fearless reputation for something I have valued since I was admitted — being firm, but fair.” 

“I’m excited to join the growing TSP family and to work for an award-winning firm, with values that align [with] my own,” Mr Spinda added.

“I’ve had extraordinary opportunities, and I am grateful to have a career that allows me to both draw on my personal experiences and to give back to those in the community who need it most.”

Speaking about the appointment, Travis Schultz & Partners chief executive Kelly Phelps said that she is “delighted” to welcome Mr Spinda to the firm.

“Greg is a welcome addition to our TSP team with his wealth of experience, passion for working closely with the community and his commitment to contributing to the legal profession as a whole,” she said.

“He is incredibly generous with his time in supporting others, and we are fortunate to have someone of Greg’s calibre join us.”
