Originally hailing from the greater Milwaukee area, Attorney Scott E. Mickelson has been a Madison resident since 1992. He graduated with highest honors from the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse in 1992 and cum laude from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1995.
Since that time, he has been practicing law in Wisconsin with a mix of criminal defense, civil litigation, and general practice. After working for a number of years as an associate attorney with a small law firm, Scott Mickelson has been a solo practitioner with his own office in Madison, representing clients throughout the state and meeting their legal representation and advice needs. His work includes real estate transactions, small business work, estate and partnership planning for same-sex and opposite-sex couples, and special education law.
Also since 1999, Scott has served as a member of the Board of Directors and as the Secretary for OutReach, Inc., Madison and south central Wisconsin’s LGBT community center. He is a member of the steering committee for the Business Alliance, Greater Madison’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce.
From a very early age, he took an interest in performing magic. His first shows, starting at age 8, were for public libraries, schools, and scouting groups. With his family as his magic troupe, including his grandmother (the self-described “oldest living magician’s assistant in captivity”) he continues to perform and entertain audiences of all ages throughout Wisconsin as Scott the Great and Company. (Yes, he has been using that stage name for over the past 30 years, since he was 8 years old.)
