Scott Peebles has over 20 years of experience as a litigator, trial attorney, and appellate advocate. Immediately after graduating from law school, Scott served in New Orleans as an Assistant District Attorney, where he prosecuted and won criminal jury trials as lead trial counsel with charges as high as murder. He has argued before the Louisiana Supreme Court twelve times. Scott later moved to California, where he litigated cases on behalf of plaintiffs in both California and Louisiana. He has completed nearly 40 jury trials, with civil case trial verdicts as lead trial counsel as large as $30 million. (Norris Morgan v. J-M Manufacturing Co., Inc. – Los Angeles County, CA). He has drafted and argued over 60 appeals and writs in Louisiana and California, with reversal decisions achieved in the appellate courts of both states. He now resides in Louisiana and maintains bar membership in both states.
Scott is an invited member of the two most prestigious litigation societies in America. The National Trial Lawyers (NTL) selects its members by invitation only – general applications by attorneys are not accepted. Members are plaintiff trial attorneys with a record of winning jury trial verdicts in court. The Litigation Counsel of America also selects its members by invitation only. Members must have an established history of successfully litigating and trying cases.
Scott received his bachelor’s degree in psychology with honors from the University of New Orleans. He earned his Juris Doctorate degree from Louisiana State University’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center in 2000. While in law school, Scott served as a member of the moot court board and captain of the Law Center’s Philip C. Jessup International Law moot court team. The Law Center awarded him the Harry A. Johnson Memorial Scholarship for his excellence in moot court performance.
In his spare time, Scott hikes, reads, exercises, and surrounds himself with as much family, festivity, and friends as he can.
