Scott grew up in Mesquite, Texas and attended John Horn High School. After graduation, he went to St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas where he studied psychology and graduated from the University’s Honors Program. During his time in Austin, he did volunteer work at a nearby juvenile detention facility by mentoring and helping to tutor incarcerated teenagers. That volunteer work turned into a full time position his last year of college.
Scott attended the Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem, North Carolina after graduating from St. Edward’s. While in law school, he interned for Lutheran Family Services of the Carolinas helping with their refugee and asylee immigration services. Scott also interned for the Dallas County Public Defender’s Office Felony Trial Division in order to garner valuable trial and trial preparation experience.
In his first few years after becoming a licensed attorney, Scott worked on the defense side for large corporations defending them from asbestos lawsuits and premises liability. There is no joy in helping the large corporations, so he switched “from the dark side” and is now dedicated to representing injured plaintiffs get the justice they deserve. Scott prides himself on actively listening to his clients, and paying attention to the smallest details of their cases and doing all he can to help them achieve the best possible results.
