I have spent my entire life in New Jersey and am committed to protecting its citizens. I believe strongly in the constitutional mandate that everyone charged with a crime is entitled to the effective assistance of counsel and I dedicated to upholding that ideal. After an almost ten year career on Wall Street I decided I want to make an a positive impact on the community and concentrate on helping people.
Experience in a busy New Jersey Prosecutor's Office and working under one of the most well respected Superior Court Criminal Presiding Judges in the state have given Scott the necessary skills to neutralize the inherent advantage enjoyed by the State.
I received an undergraduate bachelor's degree in finance from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and studied law at Seton Hall Law School in Newark, New Jersey. I graduated near the top of his class earning cum laude honors.
After graduating from law School, I worked as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Hon. Scott J. Moynihan, the Presiding Judge of the Criminal Division in Union County New Jersey.
