Scott E. Lindsey
Scott is Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and AV-Rated by Martindale-Hubbell. Scott has also been recognized as a Top Attorney in Appellate Law by Fort Worth, Texas Magazine in 2015.
Scott joined the firm in 2017. His practice encompasses all areas of civil trials and civil appeals and includes a diverse array of substantive content: commercial litigation, divorce and child custody, personal injury suits, and trustee and probate litigation. Scott has also been retained by attorneys from other law firms to consult on civil appeals, to evaluate the merits of petitions for writ of mandamus, and to research and write briefs on complex and potentially case-dispositive civil matters. As an example, Scott was retained to research and write the response to a motion for death penalty sanctions in a multi-million dollar dispute involving allegations of a willful breach of the attorney-client and work-product privileges.
While serving as senior staff attorney to Justice Anne Gardner at the Second Court of Appeals, Scott assisted Justice Gardner with all aspects of the civil appeals to which she was assigned, including complex appellate procedural and jurisdictional issues, mandamus and other original proceedings, interlocutory and expedited appeals, and appeals from final judgments. Scott was necessarily and routinely exposed to principles of error preservation, application of the appropriate standards of appellate review, and a diverse combination of procedural and substantive topics involving Texas statutory and common law and the rules of appellate and civil procedure.
Scott graduated magna cum laude from Texas Wesleyan School of Law (now Texas A&M University School of Law) in 2002 and served as a law review Notes & Comments Editor. After graduation, Scott was elected to the law school alumni association board of directors, served a term as president of the board of directors, and worked for several years as an organizer of The Chief Justice Joe Greenhill Golf Tournament. In 2013, Scott was appointed by Texas A&M University Provost Karan Watson to the Texas A&M School of Law Dean Search Advisory Committee. Also in 2013, Scott started a term on the Texas A&M University School of Law Dean’s Advisory Council.
Scott and his wife Christie have two children. When not in the office, Scott spends time enjoying his family and coaching youth baseball.
