We aim to balance legal principles and practical solutions

Melissa Scott Law was born out of a desire to create a law firm that provides clients with skillful representation and practical solutions for everyday situations.  Too often what has worked in the past will not work in the future.  This is especially the case in our rapidly evolving economy and social structures.  MSL was founded with a desire to unite legal principles and practical solutions, which are often at odds.

Time and again, many professionals are taught to be reactionary, where they simply solve the problem at hand.  At MSL, we strive to take a proactive approach to not only solve the problem, but to also to eliminate the potential for such issues to arise again.  We want to help our clients create a platform to minimize the potential for these issues to reoccur.
