Heralded as a SuperLawyers “Rising Star,” The National Trial Lawyers Association “Top 40 Lawyers Under 40” and American Institute of Legal Counsels “10 Best Attorneys in 2017” for Worker’ Compensation, Luis focuses his legal practice on people who have been injured or disabled in serious accidents and people looking for a better life in the United States by immigrating. As the Managing Partner of the Firm, Luis works on the strategic planning of the Firm and guides every aspect of the Firm to excel in the overall mission of Helping Good People find Good Lawyers.
Prior to founding The Scott Law Firm, Luis was the managing partner of another multi-million dollar firm where he oversaw, in his 14 year career, thousands of families being helped who were injured or looking for ways to immigrate to the United States.
Luis has set out to fight once again for people who need good legal representation because the system has failed them. As an attorney he has helped many people benefits they were entitled to or become legal permanent residents or citizens.
Luis has another quality that makes him great when it comes to injury law, he has actually been in a auto accident and has filed a personal claim for workers compensation. This gives him the insight that most attorneys do not have and that is the perspective of the client. The ability to stand in the shoes of the people he represents.
While these courtroom successes deserve acclaim, there is something else of which he is equally proud: “Knowing that we stand for something more than making money. Our clients, their families and our community—they are all better off because of our firm.”
Luis began his legal career in 2001, as an intern and interpreter for the Chief Magistrate Court Judge of Clayton County. Subsequently interpreting in civil litigation, mediations and criminal proceedings, he joined a firm and rose through the ranks from a part time interpreter in 2004 to the managing partner of the firm just 10 years later.
With his broad range of experience, Luis understands million dollar victories aren’t like in the movies—won with a single flashy courtroom speech. Cases are won because a team of experts works together, determined to get the job done. It takes a team of dedicated professionals to get the job done.
Luis’ personal mission is to be a man who represents God through his work in the legal profession.
A native of Puerto Rico, Luis came to Georgia after he was recruited to play baseball for the University of West Georgia, where he graduated with a B.B.A. in Accounting. He has a Juris Doctorate from Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School and is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, National Trial Lawyers Association and the The American Institute of Legal Counsel.
