Scott did not take the “normal” track to law school. In high school, he worked in a factory manufacturing air vents, air handlers, and other heating and ventilation components. He also worked construction, doing everything from laying block, to framing, to roofing. He learned how to weld on his own and worked as a welder and metal fabricator until he joined the military in 1983. Scott spent 10 years in the Air Force and served as firefighter/paramedic and as a combat medic in Desert Storm. He then joined an Air Force special operations wing that flew AC-130 Gunships. It was only then he went to Florida State University, graduating summa cum laude, and continued on to Stetson University College of Law. While attending Stetson, he earned the position of Executive Editor for the Stetson Law Review. Scott is a member of the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
As an avid biker, Scott has real world experience interacting with other bikers, motorcycle clubs, people from all walks of life, and state and federal law enforcement—even outside of the courtroom. He understands the day-to-day struggles that people must cope with just to survive. He will give all his clients the loyalty, honor, and respect they deserve.
