Scott aggressively focuses on criminal defense and family law, personal injury (auto accidents), and other areas such as business and general law, with experience handling thousands of criminal and civil-litigation cases. He handles cases all over the Tri-City area, including the City of Richmond, and Chesterfield, Henrico, Hanover, and Goochland Counties.

Scott began his career serving as a prosecutor in the Commonwealth's Attorney's Office for the City of Chesapeake. His passion for helping people and families then led him to open his own law practice, where he spent time building relationships with the state prosecutors, judges, and clerks. Through these relationships, his trial experience, and his forthright integrity, Scott has established himself as one of the most respected attorneys in the Richmond area.

Criminal, traffic, and family law matters are difficult and stressful for both the person charged and their family. Scott represents a wide variety of clients, including those in automobile accidents, as well as those charged with traffic violations-including DUI-general misdemeanors, and felonies.

Scott also represents children as a guardian ad litem, in addition to representing clients who find themselves in the midst of a custody or visitation dispute, a divorce or separation, or a case where the state is attempting to take their children. Scott's knowledge and skills in a wide variety of complex legal matters serves to alleviate the anxiety associated with these proceedings-allowing him to successfully litigate family law matters with the desired result for the vast majority of his clients.

Scott is especially proud of his record in personal injury matters, such as automobile accidents and slip-and-fall cases, where he has successfully negotiated and litigated cases against major insurance and other companies.  He understands the pain, trauma, and mental fatigue of personal injury issues and works closely with his clients to ensure they are well-prepared and ready to fight for their right to be made whole again.

When you need help from an aggressive and experienced trial attorney, Scott will treat you with the respect and dignity you deserve, listen to your concerns, tell you the truth, and always work in your best interest.

Scott is a former teacher with a Masters in Education, and a graduate of the Regent University School of Law. He has three children and is active in several faith-based activities in the community.
