Scott has actively tried cases for 40 years. From 1970 to 1975, he was JAG officer in the United States Air Force during which time he was appointed one of the prosecutors for the most serious espionage trial during the Viet Nam era. In 1975, he was appointed as attorney for the Special Disability Trust Fund of the Florida Department of Commerce.
Since 1975, Scott has limited his practice primarily to trial work. He has tried to conclusion over 200 jury trials in the areas of personal injury defense, employment law, construction litigation and medical malpractice. Scott has been engaged to appear in cases throughout the Southeast and has tried cases throughout the State of Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Houston, Texas. He has represented churches, professional organizations, law firms, insurance companies, construction companies, trucking companies, professional baseball teams, professional athletes and nationally known celebrities. He is one of the few trial attorneys to successfully try to conclusion sexual tort claims against religious organizations, employment law cases against law firms, and numerous high end automobile claims involving wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, profound neurological disability, amputations, and multimillion dollar construction defect claims.
Scott has represented defendants in cases tried to conclusion before juries in the last two years in which juries have refused to award in clear liability cases between 1.5 and 2.0 million dollars in claimed medical expenses.
