About Me

After graduating from law school, Patrick Scott worked for a large Fort Worth defense firm representing clients in insurance litigation matters. In 2011, Patrick made a decision to dedicate his practice exclusively to representing those that have been injured by the negligence of others. At The Ammons Law Firm, Patrick represents plaintiffs in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases.


He is licensed to practice law in all state courts in Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. He is also licensed in all federal courts in Texas and in the Western District of Oklahoma. Patrick is a graduate of Baylor University School of Law where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Baylor Law Review. While in law school, Patrick was selected to the Order of Barristers, the Texas Administrative Law Moot Court Team, and was an Octa-Finalist in Baylor's Moot Court competition. He previously served as an intern to the Honorable Calvin Botley of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, as an intern with the Texas State Bar Rules of Evidence Committee and on the Executive Board of the National Conference of Law Reviews. Before law school, Patrick received a B.A. summa cum laude in Political Science from the University of Houston Honors College.


Patrick was raised in Natchitoches, Louisiana. After high school, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps as an Intelligence Analyst. In his initial Marine Corps training, Patrick was recognized as an Honor Graduate of the Navy and Marine Corps Intelligence Training Center. During his four year tour of duty in the Marines, he served overseas in various countries and capacities. For his service, he received a Naval Achievement Medal as well as several commendations.
