Board Certified by the Florida Bar
Scott is Board Certified by the Florida Bar in the area of Labor and Employment Law.
Less than 5% of Florida attorneys are Board Certified in their respective areas of the law.
For nearly three decades, Scott has worked to help hundreds of men and women with their work-related problems.
His clients have included CEOs, top Human Resources management, and other officer-level executives, professionals, managers and employees from every level in the organization.
Scott has helped his clients resolve contract disputes, reach agreement on severance and non-compete issues, and has guided them through virtually every other type of employment issue there is.
Scott enjoys helping CEOs, managers, supervisors, salespeople, professionals and other employees overcome their problems at work, ranging from serious disputes with co-workers or superiors, to unlawful discrimination.
For nearly thirty years, Scott has been fighting for employees who have been illegally terminated due to serious illness of themselves or a covered dependent, or due to the medical leave associated with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or absences associated with Florida's workers' compensation laws, or time missed from work due to serious disabilities covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the Florida Civil Rights Act (FCRA).
Scott also has assisted hundreds of clients who have suffered discrimination based on age, disability, gender and medical issues, as well as discrimination based on the cost of health expenses, short-term or long-term disability issues, or due to other expenses incurred by the employer.
Since 1985, Scott has helped hundreds of other victims of employment discrimination resolve their cases, most often without the necessity of trial.
In 1986, Scott obtained the first reported multi-million dollar jury verdict ($3.3 million) in the United States on behalf of a single employment discrimination victim in Vance v. Southern
Bell Tel. & Tel. Co., which went to trial here in Jacksonville, in federal court.
More recently, during the past few years, Scott and his staff have made recoveries totaling several million dollars on behalf of his clients.
Scott usually represents no more than 10 individuals at a time to ensure that he can be personally involved in every case.
Naturally, there is no guarantee that Scott or his firm can make any specific recovery in any particular case.
Each case must be evaluated based on its own unique facts and circumstances.
