Originally from Hopewell, Virginia, Andrew relocated to Whidbey Island, with a 25 year layover in Montana. During those 25 years, Andrew graduated from the University of Montana in 1994 and worked for small firm in Missoula representing clients in Federal and State courts. It was during that time that he met his wife, Tara and became a father to their daughter Malia. In 1999, he opened Scott Law Offices and added family law and estate planning to his practice, as well as a daughter, Jillian, to the family. In 2001, Andrew joined the Missoula City Attorney’s Office and Kyle joined the growing family. The entire family is excited to move to Whidbey (although Malia is stuck in Central Washington with the grandchildren). So far, the only other addition to the family being considered is a new puppy.
Andrew received a B.A. in Political Science with a minor in English from Virginia Tech in 1991, a law degree from the University of Montana in 1994 and a Masters of Public Administration, also from the University of Montana, in 2012. He has been admitted to the State Bar in Montana, Texas, and Washington.
Andrew has conducted over 3000 trials with over 75 being jury trials. Andrew also has experience in family law, personal injury, disability claims, estate planning, and business law.
