As reported by Lawyers Weekly in April, most law firms in Australia expect to grow their headcount this year. For Travis Schultz & Partners (TSP), this is very much a reality.

In the past month, the firm has welcomed lawyer Andrew Evans to its one-year young regional practice in Cairns, and senior associate Candice Heisler and associate Karla Macpherson to its Brisbane office.

Together, the three recruits add 20 years of experience to the firm’s personal injury law expertise, TSP said in a statement.


Elsewhere, Aiden Warneke (also pictured), a Sunshine Coast-based team member with the firm for the past three years, was admitted as a lawyer in June.

TSP is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, with “faster-than-predicted” growth having occurred in that half-decade.

The boutique firm now has over 55 staff across its four locations in Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Cairns, and the Gold Coast.

Speaking about the firm’s growth in recent times, TSP founder Travis Schultz said that word-of-mouth referrals and recommendations have helped the boutique practice flourish.

The firm’s “unwavering focus on the strength of their expertise and human connection”, he posited, has helped it steer the course towards a professional services firm growing thanks to genuine reviews and referrals rather than by advertising.

“Rather than become another legal juggernaut dictated by timesheets and call centres, I prefer teams to spend time connecting in the community, in conversation with professional peers, and investing in their professional development. With six Queensland Law Society accredited specialists in personal injury law, it is a fantastic place to advance your career,” Mr Schultz proclaimed.

TSP chief executive Kelly Phelps added: “We prioritise respect and fairness and hire for culture and attitude as much as aptitude.

“Candice, Karla and Andrew share our values and commitment to personal service, and we know they will contribute positively to culture.”

The trio of new starters noted that the “collaborative approach”, as well as “the opportunity for career progression and learning” and “solid reputation and leadership”, were what led them all to TSP.
