Committed to helping our clients protect their dreams
Scott was raised on a ranch in Kilgore, Nebraska. Scott's family has ranched in and around Kilgore in both Nebraska and South Dakota for five generations. In addition, Scott's maternal great-grandfather was the first doctor in Mullen, Nebraska. There are four generations in his family that have provided professional services in the Sandhills.
After graduating from Valentine Rural High School, Scott attended the University of Nebraska on a Regents Scholarship. There, Scott majored in Agribusiness with minors in Animal Science, Political Science, Ag Economics and Communications. Scott continued on to the University of Arizona, where he was awarded the Perry Rogers Scholarship, a full tuition scholarship for law school. At U of A Law, Scott concentrated his areas of study in business and tax planning, estate planning, real estate and water law. Scott was also a member of the Arizona International Law Journal.
Upon returning to Nebraska in 2003, Scott worked for three years for Rembolt Ludtke, LLP, a highly regarded Lincoln, Nebraska law firm. Rembolt Ludtke, LLP is best known for providing estate and business planning for large and small landowners/estates throughout Nebraska. While at Rembolt, Scott practiced in the areas of Real Estate, Water and Environmental, Domestic Relations, Agricultural, Estate and Business Planning and Employment Law.
In 2007, Scott moved from Rembolt Ludtke to be general counsel and general manager for Lone Creek Cattle Company. Lone Creek is a wholly-integrated beef company based in Lincoln, Nebraska with ranching and farming operations in the Sandhills area and three farms in eastern Nebraska. As general manager, Scott was intimately involved in every aspect of the operation; including the legal work included in managing a company of its size.
These experiences have given Scott a unique perspective on personal and business needs for clients in the Sandhills area. Scott looks forward to the opportunity to put his education, experiences and perspective to work for you and your business.
