also known as Scott Cook

About me

I represent employees in a wide variety of employment disputes, including unpaid overtime cases, retaliation cases, whistleblower cases, and discrimination cases.  My practice is almost exclusively based on this type of work, and I am Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  Further information regarding my background and qualifications may be found on my firm's website.


I practice in this area of law because I enjoy representing and working with individuals.  My goal is to provide guidance and support to employees who are trying to seek a just result in a workplace dispute.  I believe in providing a voice to employees and standing up for them in protecting their workplace rights.

  • Adam Jacob Loewy

    I strongly recommend Scott Cook for any employment law matters. I have known Scott for over 10 years and he is one of the smartest lawyers I have met. He started his career as a law clerk to a Federal Judge, which is remarkable honor in the legal profession (I would guess only .0001% of new lawyers get to be Federal clerks). He has since developed a very successful practice in employment law. I have referred him clients dealing with employment issues to him and he has treated them with the utmost respect and care. I have personally seen him work wonders on lawsuits and win many very difficult cases. He is top notch. I would not use any other lawyer for employment issues.
