Founding Partners
Kyle Bachus and Darin Schanker

Bachus & Schanker, LLC founding partners Kyle Bachus and Darin Schanker have dedicated their practice to helping injured people achieve justice. They established Bachus & Schanker, LLC based on the philosophy that the injured and their families deserve respect and dignity as they address the inevitable legal and insurance issues that must be confronted after an injury or the death of a loved one. Too many times, the injured are treated with disrespect by insurance companies or they are made to feel guilty for bringing a legitimate claim to recoup the financial losses incurred by their family after an injury. The truth is, hardworking families suffer after an injury and should not be re-victimized by the financial recovery and insurance claim process. Mr. Bachus and Mr. Schanker believe some lawyers are unwilling to take on wrongdoers who are defended by huge insurance companies and the law firms the insurance companies hire. That’s why they started the firm of Bachus & Schanker, LLC to help level the playing field for the injured, and to provide the injured with access to important legal services.

From the courtroom to the Capitol, Bachus & Schanker, LLC advocates for the fundamental rights important to the injured and their families. Our founding partners participate and serve as Officers and Board Members in local, state, and national organizations committed to justice for individuals, families, and consumers.
