Scott joined Marshall, Dennehey, Warner, Coleman & Goggin as a shareholder in 2008, bringing a substantial portion of his prior firm, McDonough, Korn, Eichhorn & Schorr, with him to MDWC&G.

Scott has devoted the vast majority of his practice of 29 years to the defense of physicians and other health care practitioners in various types of health care liability matters. During that time, he has developed a reputation for excellence in the defense of medical malpractice cases throughout the courts in northern and central New Jersey.

Based upon his trial skills and experience, he has been Certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Attorney since 1985. He was elected to the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) in 2005. In 2004 through 2008, Scott was recognized as a "Super Lawyer" in the field of Medical Malpractice Defense for the special edition of New Jersey Super Lawyers Magazine.

Scott has routinely retained multiple disciplines of highly-qualified experts in sophisticated matters in order to defend such cases on a variety of levels, thus achieving settlements far below the plaintiffs' monetary demands. He has personally handled approximately 150 jury trials to verdict, in addition to handling many hundreds of litigated cases throughout his career. He has achieved successful defense verdicts in 95% of his jury trials. The vast majority of these cases have been complex medical malpractice cases involving severe, permanent injuries and/or death. Scott's significant experience has positioned him to represent hundreds of physicians, hospitals, and nurses in all types of health care liability and licensing matters.

Over the years, Scott's medical malpractice defense caseload has evolved into primarily severe, catastrophic injury and death matters ranging from neurological and orthopedic damage, negligence and misdiagnosis, to cancer and sudden cardiac death cases.

Scott is a graduate of Bucknell University, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration in 1976. He then attended and graduated from Villanova University School of Law in 1979. In that year, he was a member of the Villanova National Moot Court Team, which was awarded the Frank Edward Roda Award by the Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association in recognition of the Pennsylvania law school that advanced the farthest in the National Moot Court Competition. This was then followed by a one-year Judicial Clerkship for the Honorable Edward W. Beglin, J.S.C. and Hon. Lawrence Weiss, J.S.C. in Union County, New Jersey.

Significant Representative Matters:

  • Howard v. University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey, 172 N.J. 537 (2002); Successfully argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court to prevent a plaintiff from being able to allege fraudulent misrepresentation against a surgeon for allegedly misrepresenting his credentials and experience to the patient prior to the patient's agreement to the surgery. The New Jersey Supreme Court held that such an allegation is properly encompassed within an Informed Consent claim.

  • Defended a general practitioner in a group of over 70 consolidated cases filed against the physician (and New Jersey Transit Rail) for the doctor's role in permitting a New Jersey Transit engineer to continue to operate a commuter train after abnormalities were revealed on the vision portion of his annual certification examination. The engineer subsequently ran a stop indication, causing a head-on collision between two commuter trains, resulting in many severe injuries and some deaths. The cases were all ultimately settled, with 75% of the monetary contribution being paid by New Jersey Transit, and only 25% of the payment being made on behalf of the physician.
