Richard G. Scott Attorney Profile

“ This is the first firm I worked at out of law school. As a young attorney, the ability to collaborate and bounce ideas off of more experienced attorneys has been invaluable for my professional growth. At Rutter & Roy, I’ve had the privilege of being ‘brought up’ around a number of excellent attorneys and their guidance has made me a better attorney. ”
