I always enjoy the intellectual challenge that complex legal problems present. Because the law is constantly evolving, an attorney must be consistently dedicated to professional development. I feel fortunate to be a part of a firm that encourages constant improvement and professional growth.
Scott focuses his practice on medical malpractice, general tort liability, trucking litigation, and professional liability matters.
As a law student, Scott worked as a law clerk in Reminger’s Cleveland office. After law school, Scott joined the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps (“JAG Corps”), where he served as a military prosecutor in Fort Hood, Texas, and as a civil litigator in the Army’s Environmental Law Division in Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Additionally, in 2011, Scott deployed to Iraq where he worked with Iraqi judges and law enforcement to ensure that insurgents captured by U.S. forces were prosecuted in Iraqi courts. As an attorney in the JAG Corps, Scott had the opportunity to litigate complex civil and criminal cases on behalf of the Army, gaining valuable litigation and courtroom experience.
