Brooks Schuelke's Summary

Brooks has been a trial lawyer since 1995. His practice has focused on the representation of individuals and small businesses injured by others. This practice includes personal injury litigation and legal malpractice litigation.

One example of Brooks's practice includes his representation of a client who worked for a North Texas utility hanging transformers on utility poles. As the client was hanging a transformer, the pole fell, seriously injuring the client. Brooks and his firm sued a number of defendants involved in the construction project. Brooks is proud of the work on the case because the substantial settlement allowed the client and his wife to maintain a stable future. But perhaps more importantly, Brooks helped the client when others had not. The client had previously hired other attorneys that refused to pursue the case.

Brooks and his firm also represented an Austin Lake Patrol police officer who tripped and fell at a marina that was not properly maintained. The officer sustained serious injuries, and the firm was able to obtain a significant recovery on his behalf. But Brooks is again most proud of the work because he was able to help the client when others were not. Prior to hiring Brooks's firm, the officer had retained another lawyer who sat on the case for over ten years. The case was resolved in fourteen months after Brooks and his firm were retained.

Brooks also represented a local Austin musician in her claim against a company in Los Angeles. While not a huge case, Brooks was able to help the musician regain the rights to her music masters so that she could finish the production and distribution of her music.

Brooks is also proud of his work in providing legal services on behalf of the indigent. Perlmutter & Schuelke, LLP won the 2008 Judge Joe Hart award from Volunteer Legal Services of Central Texas for the firm's dedication to providing legal services to the poor.
