Scott Smith – Dothan, Alabama Lawyer
Scott Smith became an attorney out of his desire to help others. “Too many times individuals are faced with legal situations they are unable to navigate on their own,” Scott says. “That is where I come in,” explains Scott. “It does not matter if it’s a criminal, a family law, or a business matter, you need someone that can stand up for you and advocate for your best interest.”
During an initial consultation with Scott, you will find him receptive to your needs. Scott then works one-on-one with each client to identify their goals and priorities and how the law relates to their unique situation. Scott then designs a strategy focused on each clients’ unique situation and interests.
Scott was born in Dothan, Alabama and has a real passion for his community. A graduate of Cottonwood High School, Scott worked for two different Fortune 500 companies during the day, while he attended Troy University Dothan at night. Scott graduated with honors from Troy with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, majoring in finance.
Driven by his desire to help others, Scott attended Faulkner University, Jones School of Law. Scott knew that he would be most effective as an attorney if he fully dedicated himself to learning the law. His hard work and dedication in law school earned him the honor of graduating first in his class (summa cum laude) and induction into Order of Barristers. Also, Scott served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Faulkner Law Review, where he helped guide this prestigious publication to new heights. Scott also participated in trial advocacy during law school, where he traveled the nation competing in and winning national trial competitions.
After graduation, Scott furthered his legal education and understanding of the law from the “other side of the bench” when he served as a law clerk to a United States District Judge for the Southern District of Alabama for two years. Scott is ready to serve you no matter your legal need.
