Scott is from Canberra originally and practiced there as an in-house solicitor for both a private firm and for the government. Since moving to NSW in 2006, Scott has practiced in private firms in both Sydney and the Blue Mountains. Scott’s strengths include being a good listener and conveying technical legal terms and concepts in plain English to his clients. He is empathetic and sympathetic to his clients, particularly those who have suffered domestic abuse and hardship.
Scott was admitted as a solicitor in 2004. He is a member of the NSW Law Society and the Blue Mountains Law Society. He specialises in court work and has experience in many areas of law, including criminal law, traffic law, civil law, wills, powers of attorney, enduring guardianship, probate, commercial law, property law and mediations. He has successfully represented clients in the local courts in criminal, traffic and civil law matters; in the District Court for criminal law matters; and in the Supreme Court for civil law matters.
Scott has given lectures to members of the public in relation to general areas of law during law week festivities, held each year, and has given pro bono advice to clients in his former capacity as a volunteer solicitor at community legal centres in both the ACT and NSW.
When not at work, Scott is involved with local community organisations, including Blue Mountains Soccer. He enjoys bushwalking with his family and skiing in winter. He is also an avid traveller, and has previously lived abroad in the UK and in Europe. Scott is currently completing a Masters of Law at the Australian National University, focusing on Human Rights Litigation, Federal Court Litigation and Advanced Evidence. He has also served with both the Australian and British armies.
