About Scott

Learn Scott’s areas of practice.

My name is Scott Stillson.  I was born and raised in Wichita Falls, Texas.  I attended Midwestern State University where I was lucky enough to meet and later marry my college sweetheart.  After graduating with Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s of Science in Criminal Justice, I received my Juris Doctor from Texas Tech School of Law.  After weighing my career options, I chose to go back to the city I love and worked at Legal Aid of Northwest Texas.  There I fought for victims of domestic violence, tenants who were preyed upon by slumlords, and ordinary consumers duped by predatory banks.  After several years I was fortunate enough to work at the Wichita County Public Defender’s Office.  There I tried several felony and misdemeanor jury trials and battled to preserve my clients’ Constitutional rights from an overreaching government.

 

I have always believed in the value of hard work and I carry that ethic with me when I work on your case.  I will return your phone calls, always give you my honest advice, and fight like hell to get you the best outcome possible.

I hired Scott Stillson to help me in a civil matter. He was very responsive and kept me informed along the way. He handled my case professionally and explained what needed to be done. Mr. Stillson prepared the necessary paperwork and filed it quickly. I was able to get the results I wanted in a very short period of time. I would highly recommend Mr. Stillson for any legal work.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Scott Stillson is a brilliant, dedicated attorney.
I have dealt with many of the attorneys in Wichita County, seen Scott handle a number of cases and worked with him on a few. He is one off the most intelligent and committed attorneys in this area. Other lawyers go to Scott when they have questions about law they have researched. Probably no other attorney here who is not on the bench have a better ability to identify legal issues, research the law and devise effective resolutions for clients. Additionally, Scott has a strong work ethic and fierce sense of loyalty from which his clients stand to benefit.
