About Scott Burleigh
Scott has practiced Family Law, Social Security Disability, and Probate, but his passion is Personal Injury. Initially, he took a personal injury position at a law firm, thinking he would not enjoy it and would move to a different area of law after he got his feet wet. After only one week, he realized that clients need an attorney when dealing with a personal injury case as the insurance companies will not pay top dollar without an attorney working hard for the client.
He likes to explain to clients that navigating their way through a personal injury case is like traveling from Florida to Oregon without a map or GPS. He acts as a navigator to help people make the journey in the most efficient way possible. After twelve years, he still enjoys helping his clients navigate their way through the process. To date, he has handled well over one thousand cases.
Scott is active in his local church and in his spare time, Scott enjoys spending time with his family and tinkering in the garage on his latest project.
