Biography

Scott uses forensic science knowledge, cutting-edge courtroom communication techniques, zealous advocacy, and comprehensive investigative practices to aggressively defend drivers accused of misdemeanor and felony charges involving drug offenses, DUI, DUID, other alcohol or drug related driving crimes, domestic violence charges, forfeitures, and other offenses in Washington state and federal courts.   Scott practices his craft state-wide with offices and legal relationships throughout Washington State.  Although Scott’s primary practice area is state and federal courts in King, Snohomish, Pierce and Kittitas Counties, Scott regularly rides “circuit” throughout the state.

Scott defends people from all walks of life – students, professionals, CDL holders, airline pilots, ship captains, medical professionals, and others with licenses from regulated professions.  These people have special challenges and additional reporting requirements that dramatically affect their work and families when are charged with a crime.  Scott is particularly adept at navigating the regulatory framework these clients face.  Technology executives, sports agents, government and political figures, and major Seattle law firm clients rely on Scott for his criminal defense skills and expertise to help their clients when they need a Washington criminal defense lawyer for criminal defense matters and to discreetly resolve minor indiscretions.
