    Scott Krist is one of the finest lawyers I've had the privilege of working with, and also against. His level of preparation is unparalleled. More impressive is that his legal acumen likely doesn't require his level of preparation, which should be all the more frightening for his opponents. But probably most impressive is Scott's ability to see through to the crux of the issue, hone in on it with laser focus and never let up. If I, or one of my loved ones had the misfortune of being catastrophically injured, Scott would be at the very top of my list of lawyers to call. He is an artisan of advocacy. Paxton N. Crew Attorney League City, Texas
