Message From Scott

“I started out working for prestigious corporate law firms, including President Richard Nixon’s former firm.   I defended insurance companies in lawsuits brought by their policyholders.  This work gave me insightful knowledge, but I was very unhappy and unfulfilled.  After years of what I felt was the wrong side of justice, I left big corporate law firm life to help people on the other side — to make a difference in the lives of those who most need skilled legal support.

I’m happiest when I’m fighting for justice against big firms that think they’re untouchable.  When people are at the lowest points in their lives – injured, depressed, and worried about their futures – I step in to make a difference in their lives.  I’m there to help take away their fears, loneliness and pain, to let them know they’re no longer in this fight alone. I love being a trial lawyer.  I am devoted to becoming the best person and lawyer that I can be. That’s why I fight for justice with all of my heart and soul, and stay fully committed to my clients.

My firm takes a limited number of cases, so I can personally devote a tremendous amount of time and care to each client.  I get to know my clients and their families very well.  I can only help my clients if I truly know them and understand them.  That’s why I spend a lot of time visiting my clients at their homes and elsewhere.  I take every case very seriously, because the outcome of each case can affect the lives of thousands of families across America.  I don’t settle clients’ cases quickly and cheaply to earn easy money.  Every member of my firm works hard to do everything possible to obtain all of the justice the law allows for each client.”
