Her Approach, Background & Community Involvement Lead to This Feature

Ms. Scott carefully selects every client relationship to ensure the best possible outcomes can be achieved for every person that works with her firm. She excels at critical thinking and takes an open-minded approach to every case, custom tailoring her legal strategies to every client. She believes in working directly with every client and prides herself on being responsive, trustworthy, detail oriented, efficient, and reliable.
She serves on the Board for the Jacksonville Beaches Bar Association and Human Rights Committee. She is a past President of the Jacksonville Women Lawyers Association, where she was recognized by the Florida Association of Women Lawyers for her contributions to field of law. Since 2009, she has maintained a membership with the Meninak Club that focuses on youth development and providing “help where none is available.” Sitting on the junior achievement committee and charity project committee, she finds great reward in helping the organization provide $40,000 in grants annually to various charities in the Northeast Florida region.
