Scott has practiced Tax, Wealth Management and Fiduciary law as a principal with Word & Word PLC since 2006. Before that he served as the first Development Director of, and organized the Planned Giving program for, the Ruffed Grouse Society, a national wildlife conservation advocacy organization. He also served as the President of the NPA Foundation of Washington, D.C., a private operating foundation dedicated to the education of judges and lawyers on the ill effects of the divorce litigation system on the development of children and ways to ameliorate those ill effects. He was recruited for that role because of his fifteen years experience as a domestic relations litigator. This background has equipped Scott to counsel individuals contemplating marriage on the advisability and structuring of premarital agreements, particularly when children of a prior marriage will be involved.
