Learn D.’s areas of practice.

D. Scott Crook’s law practice has focused largely in the areas of labor and employment law, where he has represented both large employers and highly compensated employees, executives, and professionals. Mr. Crook has won numerous trials, arbitrations, and appeals over his many years in private practice. He is consistently named as a member of Utah's Legal Elite, a Mountain State’s Super Lawyer, and one of the Best Lawyers in America in the area of Labor and Employment Litigation. Mr. Crook also has significant experience in all areas of land use, water law, and general civil litigation; and he has extensive experience in appellate practice, having appeared and argued numerous cases before the Utah Court of Appeals, Utah Supreme Court, and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.


Mr. Crook graduated from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University in 1996, where he was Order of the Coif and graduated Magna Cum Laude. In law school, Mr. Crook was also a staff member of the BYU Law Review and an associate editor of the BYU Journal of Public Law. After graduation, he served as a law clerk to two distinguished judges—from 1997 to 1998 he clerked for Judge Norman H. Jackson of the Utah Court of Appeals and from 1996 to 1997 he clerked for Judge William H. Woodland in the Idaho Sixth Judicial District Court. Since that time, Mr. Crook has been in private practice. Prior to forming Crook Legal Group PLLC, Mr. Crook was a founding partner and past president of a medium-sized Salt Lake City law firm and a member of another well-respected small law firm located in Salt Lake City.

Mr. Crook, the son of a career military man, has lived throughout the United States, including stops in Arizona, Mississippi, Washington, California, and New Mexico. Because he lived for his entire teenage years in Alamogordo, New Mexico, he claims it as his hometown.

Mr. Crook enjoys spending time with his family, doing family history research, and sports.

Best Utah employment lawyer
Scott Crook is hands down the best attorney when it comes to Utah employment law, non-competition agreements, litigation, and business law in general. I’ve worked with several attorneys over the years and Scott has been the only one I’ve been truly impressed with. Scott worked with me on my case for approximately 7 months, as such, I’ve had the opportunity to interact with him on a regular basis. He is timely in his responses, thoughtful in his execution, and a true ally you want on your side. Scott never made me feel like I was asking a “dumb question”, and he always sought to ensure I understood every facet of my case throughout the entire process. I was so impressed with his services on my particular case that I will be using his firm for some of my companies’ other legal needs. I can’t recommend Scott or his practice enough. Experienced, dependable and level-headed. If you’re looking for an attorney who cares about his clients and their pursuits: Scott is your guy.
