The attorney and Leadership Forum graduate who recommended Scott said, “I came to know Scott personally when he and his wife, Gina, joined our church Sunday School class approximately five years ago. Scott has an outgoing personality, and he immediately began serving the church by teaching our Sunday School class. Scott has continually served the church by teaching our church’s fourth grade Sunday School class by faithfully serving as an usher. Scott currently serves as General Counsel for the Alabama Municipal Insurance Corporation, and I can say that he is a true advocate for his client. In this role, Scott is genuine, well-regarded, and his is well-liked. Scott has an energy and drive that has led to an impressive professional resume. I believe he would be an energetic and active member of the Alabama State Bar Leadership Forum.”

In his own words Scott said, “I continue to experience changes that vault me into various leadership opportunities. I have now completed a full year General Counsel for one of my clients. I have had the opportunity to share my experience and knowledge of the legal profession as one of the faculty member for the Alabama League of Municipalities Certified Officer Training program, held in Huntsville, Birmingham, and Montgomery. I spoke on the topic of insurance and public entities for the Alabama City/County Management Association. I was privileged to continue representation of a client for the Bar’s VLP program as well as attended and assisted in the Montgomery County VLP. These events have taught me a tremendous amount about character, friendship, clients, ethics, adversity, and independence. These varied events have especially helped me to continue to provide exceptional service to my clients to providing exceptional service to my Bar and community at large. I am intelligent, hard-working, driven, and compassionate. I also truly care about my clients, fellow attorneys, and all people. I believe that the practice of law is much more than a job or even a profession. Like leadership in general, it is a calling to serve. I endeavor to demonstrate integrity and good character along with intellect and hard work. When I win a settlement or a verdict, I want it to always be because I had the best facts and/or thought and worked harder than opposing counsel, not because I was dishonest or otherwise unscrupulous. Character is far more important than a list of tainted victories. I strive to live a godly life. I love the Lord, I love my wife, I love my children, and I try to love my neighbor as myself. That means, to the best of my abilities, I help others with my time or money whenever and wherever I can. Presumably, establishing these priorities, I will leave a legacy of service to those nearest to me and to all those around me. I hope to further add to my knowledge, skills, experience, and contacts so that I can reach my highest potential as a lawyer, a member of the Alabama State Bar, and a member of the community. This forum is simply the best opportunity for a lawyer to learn how to be a better lawyer and a better leader. I humbly submit myself wholly and enthusiastically to your tutelage.”
