Kenneth A. Scott Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science with a minor in Business Administration from Trinity University, in San Antonio, Texas. He attended South Texas College of Law where he received his Juris Doctorate in 1994. While he attended South Texas College of Law he was admitted to Phi Delta Phi, an international legal fraternity, and competed successfully in Moot Court and Mock Trial. He demonstrated his legal scholarship with regularity, appeared on the Dean’s List, and was ultimately awarded the Order of the Lytae for consistent excellence in legal studies. He frequently “topped the class” in such wide-ranging subjects as Labor Law and Civil Pre-Trial Advocacy. His achievements in advocacy were rewarded with the American Jurisprudence Award for Civil Pretrial Advocacy, a briefing award for his work in the Leroy Jeffers Moot Court Competition, and a top ten oral advocacy award in his first Mock Trial Competition.
Mr. Scott has been in continuous practice for more than twenty years, litigating on behalf of individuals and business entities, and advising small and medium sized business to improve their legal function. For three years, he served as general counsel for the services division of an environmental services company engaged, gaining valuable insight into the legal needs of businesses and the value of effective communication and cost-effective legal services.
While engaged in the full-time practice of law, Mr. Scott sought to further his legal education by serving as an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Houston Law Center. He instructed law students in the areas of Legal Research and Writing of Civil Pre-Trial Advocacy. He has also served as an instructor for the National Institute of Trial Advocates (NITA) and presented Continuing Legal Education presentations to Lawyers and Paralegals through the State Bar of Texas and private education companies. He frequently appears as a guest lecturer at the University of Houston Law Center, where he emphasizes the ethical and practical application of law and procedure for the benefit of clients.
Mr. Scott believes that the needs of the client must guide the lawyer’s representation. Whether the case calls for aggressive representation through trial, effective motions practice, or an early settlement at mediation, his tailored approach to each client and each case maximizes client resources, limits litigation costs, and provides superior results.
Mr. Scott is admitted to practice before all Texas State Courts, and before the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western Districts as well as the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
