Scott’s practice focuses on small businesses and
estate planning for individuals. He represents small and medium-size businesses
and their owners in all aspects from creating the business, to collecting large
accounts receivables, to drafting leases, real estate acquisitions, and
employment agreements to help those businesses grow.
He also has experience in the sale of a business or
planning for the succession of a business to the next generation of owners.
Scott helps individuals plan for future generations of individuals and families
through estate planning. In addition to general estate planning, he represents
families of persons with special needs in petitioning the probate courts for
guardianship and helping those families to prepare for the future needs of such
individuals through special needs trusts.

the state courts of St. Louis County, Jefferson County, and Franklin County,
Missouri, as well as the bankruptcy courts of Missouri representing creditor
businesses with claims against the debtor.
