About Me

I practice in the state and federal courts of both Tennessee and Arkansas.  During the course of my working life, I have negotiated more than $250 million in contracted business by building partnerships that have benefited my employers as well as my clients producing positive results from these partnerships in a time when opportunities for such success were limited.  I communicate and negotiate effectively with clients and other interested parties. 


Specifically in my legal practice, I have been responsible for more than $1.5 million in settlements in less than 18 months.  I have had extensive involvement in litigation dating back more than four (4) years and, as a law student, had the privilege of arguing before the Eight Circuit Court of Appeals.


I know how to get business done and bring that ability to every job I have ever held.

  • Seth Layton Bowman

    I've had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Scurlock for several years. He simply does not take the easy way out. I don't know too many folks like that. His practice seems to be totally focused on the underdog. The bottom line is, I trust Mr. Scurlock and his judgment.
