During a summer college internship with personal injury attorney and story-teller extraordinaire, Cecil “Cas” Casterline, Scott Snellings discovered his passion for helping injury victims and their families – specifically a multiple fatality crash involving an 18-wheeler truck that left two young girls without their parents.

Born in Lubbock where his father was a Texas Tech Red Raider, Scott moved to Plano, Texas, when he was three years old. He attended Plano schools and played football for Plano East Senior High School. Although Scott originally had intentions of becoming a medical doctor as a student at Baylor University, the internship helped Scott find his true calling. He applied to the Baylor University School of Law and was accepted.

During his law school tenure, Scott excelled and was a member of the Baylor Law Review, Order of the Barristers and Abner McCall chapter of the Inns of Court. Upon graduation, Scott joined the insurance and product liability defense firm of Hartline, Dacus, Barger, Dreyer & Kern, L.L.P.  While there, Scott worked with and learned from some of the finest trial attorneys in the country. Scott’s litigation practice focused primarily on defending personal injury and product defect claims.

In 2008, Scott began representing injured victims when he co-founded The Burress Snellings Law Firm. During that time, Scott developed a trial practice which included representing clients that suffered moderate to catastrophic injuries as well as the families and estates of those killed due to someone else’s negligence.

The culmination of all his experiences led Scott to create Snellings Law PLLC. His goal is to provide superior service to each and every client by making certain they are involved in the process, can obtain the medical treatment they need, and are confident that they have an experienced professional fighting for them every step of the way.

Long Process but kept me informed along the way
In March of 2021 I was in a car accident where I was at a dead stop and hit at a speed above 65 MPH from behind. I was in the ICU with a number of injuries. I did not have any intention of getting a lawyer, no "lawyering up", I should be able to handle this myself. But before I was out of my 4 days in the hospital, I was getting calls from 2 different insurance companies telling me my settlement was ready. That is when I decided to get a lawyer. I had three different conversations with three different offices. I picked Scott's office because it asked me one question the others did not, "What are your realistic expectations from the attorney you pick to represent you? I said I want my hospital bills paid, my car paid for since it was totaled, and my days that I missed work I would be paid. Scott said that is a realistic expectation and his office could help me. While the process was long, Scott's office kept me up to date, month to month and even had my own text line so I could contact them. Also, Scott called me to keep me informed of what was happening. Bottom-line is he and those in the office treated me with respect and kept to his word in how things would happen. While I hope I never have another accident, kif I do I will be calling Scott.

Great service, very knowledgeable, professional
No one ever really wants to have to engage an attorney, but if you need one this team is great. Hannah Conrardy represented us for an auto accident. We asked lots of questions, weren't sure we really needed representation, or whether try to sort it out ourselves. Very happy we didn't try to. Hannah very patiently answered all our questions, clearly outlined the whole process, made it clear how an attorney can help, and where they can't. They helped us get treatment quickly, handled all the documentation requests and negotiated with the insurance companies and medical teams. Hannah or a staff member quickly responded to all our calls or texts, and made us feel like our case and health was important and they wanted to be helpful. We are very happy that we engaged an attorney after all, and extremely pleased with Snellings Law and the case resolution. Hope we don't need this kind of help in the future, but if we do, we will definitely use Snellings Law.

Compassionate, Informative, & Successful
Scott, Rocio, Gina, Alyssa, & Hannah have all been extremely professional, yet they genuinely cared for me and my healing process. Their expertise and patience in explaining each step along the way made an overwhelming situation feel manageable. I was made to feel like family and they always had my best interest at heart. They each are truly passionate about what they do-helping others through difficult and sometimes tragic circumstances. I highly recommend this amazing team and am grateful for their time, energy, effort, and dedication to my case!

Serious Accident
I was involved in a serious accident in July of 2020 when a car ran a red light and T-Boned me. I had to be taken to the ER via ambulance and had major damage to my shoulder. Topping this off, the person who ran the red light did not have insurance. I contacted Snellings Law and the were able to help me with recovery of my losses, after care for my shoulder and a fair settlement with my insurance company. They handled everything and were great to work with.

Car Crash Property and Injury --Handled
After being involved in a crash that totaled my new SUV and left me concerned about my physical well being, having an attorney involved helped ensure that everything would be handled properly. Their office explained what they needed from me, and directed me to imaging specialists and physical therapy resources. My property claim was settled equitably and quickly. After several weeks of physical therapy I was confident that I would recover well from the event. In the end, the doctors were compensated and my direct cost and inconveniences were covered as well. I don't think the outcome could have been better.

Excellent Legal Work with Supportive Information
Scott and his team were very effective representing my interests with a personal injury case. The detailed information provided from the initial consultation through the settlement, gave me confidence in who was handling my situation and that a quick resolution would be reached. Through emails, text messages, and phone calls I was consistently updated on progress and asked about my input. Without a doubt I would recommend the Snellings Team, and would not hesitate in using them again. Excellent Legal Professionals!

Excellent Caring Attorney
Scott Snelling is a caring and compassionate attorney. He gave my wife and me valuable advise after a car accident last spring. His integrity is impeccable and he referred us to an equally competent specialist.

Rear-ended by a careless driver
I was rear-ended by a careless driver.  Let me start with the basics, I was involved in a car accident that I thought was open/closed case. Same days a few hours later me and my son that was in the vehicle began feeling soreness in our back, neck, nausea and I was talking with very slow speech as if I was in slow motion and we both began feeling very sleepy lucky my husband was home and realized that this is not normal, he took us to the ER and from there on everything went downhill for me.  I suffered so much, lost memories, constant pain, my voice, self-confidence and so much more.  My husband found Scott on Google made an appointment saw Scott and was very pleased with him. Scott and his staff provided excellent service, demonstrating professionalism, caring and personal attention to all details of my case. Scott’s attitude to the work he does is impeccable, he and his staff was very informative in answering my questions and concerns, very accommodating and eased my worries. Scott worked diligently on my case saving me tones of money from my medical bills by reducing them as much as he can and got all my medical bills paid and I got a handsome amount for myself.  Thanks to Scott and his staff committed to getting my bills to reduce I am very pleased with the amount I received.  Overall, I highly recommend Scott he is honest, caring and will commit has a firmness of purpose and resolve to achieve your best interest.

Excellent Attorney!
I am so thankful to David Scott Snellings and his staff at Snellings Law for all of their hard work on my daughter's dog bite case. He was very knowledgeable, thorough, and fought hard to get my daughter more than what I thought was even possible. On top of that, he was a pleasure to work with. I felt like he genuinely cared about us and had our/my daughter's best interests at heart.

Accident Stress Relieved
We trusted Snellings Law PC to handle our personal injury case as a result of my wife's auto accident in late December of last year (2016). "Trust" is the first word that comes to mind when reflecting on the work done for us by the firm, and Scott Snellings in particular. He and his staff communicated with us frequently throughout the legal and insurance processes. My wife was referred to top-quality specialists to treat her injuries from the accident. We paid no out-of-pocket expenses for any of the treatments. The final settlement for us was fair and received in a timely manner. We were happy that trial action was avoided.

Best Experience I Could Have Hoped For
The Burress Snellings Law Firm handled our accident / personal injury case in an exemplary manner. Scott Snellings was incredibly easy to work with and he walked us through the process step-by-step. He was attentive to our needs and empathetic, and the firm fought for every dollar we deserved while making the process as painless as possible. Being involved in a motor vehicle accident is an extremely traumatic experience by itself, and I was dreading the “post accident” experience. I can’t tell you how appreciative I was of having an attorney who treated my wife and I like family. I hope we are never in the same situation again, but if we are, we will not hesitate to contact Scott and his firm. If you need an attorney, trust me when I say you can unequivocally do no better than The Burress Snellings Law Firm.

Client
I can't say enough good things about Buress Snellings. Scott was professional, honest, hardworking. He was kind and compassionate with everyone involved. He even reviewed my auto insurance for me after the case was over to be sure I had the correct coverage moving forward, God forbid I need to use it again.

Doing the RIGHT thing
We had the extreme pleasure to work with Scott and his office staff. I was involved in injury accident. Thinking that insurance companies would do the "right" thing and pay the medical bills. We realized very quickly with the property damage conversations that we needed help. Thanks to Scott and his office staff, we were well taken care of. They know the "right" thing to do and the knowledge to support you. You won't be sorry, go visit with them and decide for yourself how great they are.

Mr. Snellings is amazing!
My wife was hit by someone running a red light. They had no insurance or driver's license. She was hospitalized for several days, and I tried handling the claim with my insurance company by myself. I soon realized that I was in over my head, and a friend recommended the Burress Snellings Law Firm. I am so glad that he did. Mr. Snellings was amazing from the beginning. He was concerned about my wife, and immediately got to work. He found a witness to the accident and was able to negotiate a settlement that was more than I ever imagined. We just wanted the medical collection calls to stop. He did this and so much more! He was very responsive and let us know up front that this could take a while. He kept in contact, and negotiated a settlement for all of the medical claims. I hope to never have to use Mr. Snellings again, but I would not hesitate to recommend him to someone in need of his services.

Excellent Attorney
From the beginning I knew I had an extremely difficult case for anyone to work with, but D. Scott Snellings was willing to give it a shot. With all Dr. Snellings hard work and persistence on my case, the over all outcome turned out to be more than I could have asked for! If you are looking for a firm to represent you in a professional and remarkable manor I would defiantly recommend The Burress Snellings Law Firm, they have provided me with excellent service!
