Scott B. Black, Esq., graduated and received his Juris Doctorate from Pace University School of Law in 1997, and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Towson State University in 1994. He is admitted to practice law in both the State and Federal Courts of New York State. Following his admission to the N.Y.S. Bar in January, 1998, Mr. Black became associated with a prominent Nassau County law firm in East Meadow, New York, where he represented clients in the areas of employment and labor law, civil and commercial litigation, and criminal defense litigation, gaining valuable experience in each area of law. He also represented various police and firefighter's labor unions in all aspects of collective bargaining, internal affairs and disciplinary matters before the Courts of the State of New York, including the Public Employment Relations Board. Since forming the law firm Jones & Black, P.C. in September, 2003, Mr. Black has continued to represent numerous clients in these areas of the law, and is currently special counsel to various Nassau and Suffolk County Police Labor Unions, while also serving as the Village Prosecutor for the Incorporated Village of North Hills, in Nassau County, New York. In the criminal law context, he has experience from both viewpoints (ie, from a prosecutorial and a defense standpoint), giving him greater insight as to what it takes, in a legal sense, to successfully prepare, try and resolve various criminal matters for the firm's clients, from the basic traffic infraction to the serious felony arrest. Mr. Black takes pride in his ability to connect with his clients, to return his client's calls in a prompt manner, and to provide quality legal services at a reasonable rate.

Amazing Lawyer
Scott was recommended to me by a friend and I have nothing negative to say about him after hired. I had a 98 in a 55mph zone speeding ticket, brought all the way down to basically a parking ticket and no points. Amazing work and definitely out performed from what he promised me in my consolation. Regardless what he costs to take care of your situation, Scott is well worth your time!!

MAGIC!!! 106 MPH SPEED REDUCED TO PARKING TICKET
Scott somehow got my 106 mph speed in Nassau reduced to a parking ticket!! No points on my license and my insurance was not increased. He also got my wife's cell phone ticket in Suffolk reduced to a parking ticket! I tell all of my friends to keep his cell phone number in their phones and to call right away if they get tickets or arrested. He is truly the best.

Highly recommended Attorney
I can't even put into words what Scott Black has done for me. Not only is he extremely professional, knowledgeable, and a great attorney. He is understanding and compassionate. I needed someone in my corner who believed in me and help fight for me. I told Scott and the end of my journey with him that he made me believe that there are still good people in this world!!! You need an attorney you need Scott Black. So grateful for him and all he did for me.

Criminal Defense
Scott took care of a speeding ticket for me back in 2018 and then again this week. He reduced my “speeding in work zone” to “jaywalking”. No points on my license and nothing on my abstract! It’s like it never happened. I definitely recommend him!

Scott is the best!
Scott is wonderful! My teenaged son got some tickets upstate (one was technically a felony under the law) and I started looking for an attorney. Scott called me back promptly and was very generous with his time during our phone consult. He thought it was premature to hire an attorney but was ready in case we needed one. He advised us as to how to handle the tickets. Due to his advice, the tickets were dismissed. No points and no insurance increase! And he did not even bill me for the phone consult. He is a classy, knowledgable guy and I would not hesitate to hire him if we ever need a lawyer. I would highly recommend him.

Best Traffic Lawyer EVER
I’ve used a couple different traffic lawyers in my time and I have to say NO ONE worked as efficiently and made as much of a difference as Scott Black. No matter which part of the Island he was able to help me out, getting RIDICULOUS results such as 13 points to zero points and just recently 17 points to zero. My license would have been suspended multiple times over if not Scott and if you have any doubts at all you should give him a call and let his work speak foe himself.

Scott is one of the most competent, profession and noteworthy lawyers I have had the pleasure of representing me. Far from ordinary and very conscientious, he performs his job with due diligence and respect. I cannot say enough. He is a high performance lawyer.

Scott Black helped me with DWI matter and was very comforting and willing to answer any questions I had throughout my case. He provided me with documents for me to read as it pertained to my situation that I would refer to on occasion to help answer some other questions I had or refresh my memory. My experience with him is one I share with any one of my friends who are seeking an attorney and Scott Black is the one I always suggest they contact first when in search of legal representation.
