A law office 40 years in the making…
From my early years I was enamored with the law. The intricacies, nuances, and complexities of the written law, in addition to the action of courtroom practice, fascinated me in a way that most likely gave an appearance of obsession. From junior high forward, I knew I wanted to be a lawyer.
When you make grand plans however, sometimes the universe has other ideas. After some detours I found myself on a different career path as a firefighter. I returned to college as a means of furthering my fire service career and staying sharp. In the back of my mind, I never gave up the dream of practicing law despite the passage of years. When presented with an opportunity to attend law school I thought “Why not? Why can’t I do both?” Just over three years later I graduated from law school and passed the Missouri Bar a few months afterward.
Scarborough Law Office opened its doors in 2013; in 2020 I retired from the fire service to dedicate myself full time to the practice of law. When I say my law office is 40 years in the making its not hyperbole. While law school may only have been 3 ½ years of time, a lifetime’s work went into the process of creating my approach to the law and understanding of people. As a former firefighter and paramedic I have a problem solving approach that I apply to client needs; I have learned to read people and situations, and gain trust. I maintain a service first mentality that developed from thirty years of public service. Without these experiences I could not be the lawyer I am today.
Scarborough Law Office is a general practice firm, and we cover a wide area of law. No lawyer can be an expert at all things—the law is too vast a topic and everchanging. But I invite you to contact the office even if you’re not sure if we can handle your particular problem. If we can’t take your case we will be honest and tell you—but we will do our utmost to help you someone who can help you. It’s part of our commitment to the community. Justice should not be deferred because counsel cannot be found.
I look forward to the future.
