About Scott E. Powell

Attorney Scott Powell started his career defending insurance and healthcare companies.

As a result, he knows how the defense and insurance companies think and the tricks they use to deny people the compensation they need and deserve.

Our firm now only represents individuals harmed by others. But we use our intimate knowledge of injury defense to stay a step ahead and maneuver around any attempts to delay or unfairly deny your claim.

We've even earned several awards for our advocacy and representation of clients. We recover the money needed to repair lives destroyed by carelessness.

Extremely professional and has an unrivaled ability to consider every vantage point in a case.

Mr Powell is extremely professional and has an unrivaled ability to consider every vantage point in a case. He represented a family member after a car accident and gave the case personalized attention. The big volume firms on TV settle en masse functioning more like claims adjusters. I would highly recommend Mr. Powell if you want a trustworthy attorney with experience.
