About Me

"My job is to protect imperfect people from those that think they are perfect." 

-Scott C. Thomas, Esq.


I have focused my legal career entirely on criminal law, as I have a passion for protecting those accused of criminal conduct from the powers that be.  This passion is rooted in the notion that by protecting the rights of my clients', I am also protecting the rights of society as a whole, especially in the state-ist times in which we live.


Having earned a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara, I am accutely aware that unchecked executive power is a cancer to a free and just society.  At the front line of the war being waged on society's freedoms and linberties, are criminal defense attornies, who provide the necessary check on governmental action, and fight to ensure that our society remains free and open, the essential hallmarks of Western Civilization.


Outside the courtroom, I enjoy surfing, hiking, and volunteering my time to help those less fortunate.

  • Mark Andrew Mcbride

    Scott is tough is nails, and I endorse him without reservation. On the one hand, he's going places since he's rather new to the profession, but on the other hand -- and most importantly -- he's already arrived. He knows how to treat clients well, and he fights hard for them. He's easy to get along with, but he can turn on the heat when need be. Any client is in good hands with Scott, and I can vouch for him personally.
