About Scott

Learn Scott’s areas of practice.

Many years ago I went to law school with the intention of going into politics, then a funny thing happened, I fell in love with the law.  I love being a lawyer.  I don't understand colleagues and other lawyers who complain about their careers, I love every second of it.  It is not just my career, it is who I am, it is what I do and what I am passionate about.  The books I read, the movies I watch, the television shows I watch are all predominantly about the law.  I try to bring my passion and energy to every case I have.  I understand when a client walks into my office that client has entrusted his or her life with me.  I take that trust seriously and I do everything in my power to get the best result possible for each and every client.  By not going into politics I gave up the opportunity to help society as a whole, I really believe that I am making a larger, more immediate contribution by helping one client  at a time.

Scott gets results quickly....
Scott is an excellent wrongful termination attorney. He was able to swiftly negotiate 3 lawsuits for me where other attorneys I met with I did not seem to get anywhere with in regards to my former employer-a fortune 500 company . I would highly recommend Scott.

Five star attorney
I hired Scott as my attorney in 2010 for a dispute against my employer. Scott is an aggressive, knowledgeable and fair attorney. I feel that because of the kind of attorney/person he is, I was able to get a favorable outcome on my case. I would highly recommend for anyone to hire him.
