Scott is a Senior Associate Attorney for the Seattle office of GLP Attorneys. He received his Juris Doctor in May 1994 from the University of Oregon. At U of O he was in the top 15% of his class while working as a full-time intern for the United States District Court for the District of Oregon.

Before law school, Scott worked as a paralegal.  After law school, he worked as a Public Defender in Seattle. He represented clients on charges as varied as Robbery in the First Degree, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Complex Fraud cases, and Drug Charges. He has tried over one hundred cases, including a six-week jury trial on a charge of Murder in the First Degree.

In 2000, Scott began working as a senior staff attorney at an insurance defense firm, where he handled cases involving automobile accidents, product liability defects, premises liability claims, defamation claims and commercial litigation. He was named a 2005 Washington Rising Star by Washington Law & Politics.

In May 2005, Scott started his own firm, specializing in personal injury and criminal defense. His personal injury practice included automobile and motorcycle accidents, trip and fall cases and product liability cases. His criminal defense practice included felonies and misdemeanors, including DUI defense, drug charges, sexual assault charges, and violent felonies.

Scott joined GLP Attorneys in 2012 with extensive experience in personal injury work, as well as over a decade of hands-on courtroom advocacy. In 2019 Scott was named a Senior Associate Attorney with the firm.

When he is not at work, Scott likes to play piano and spend time with his family on Vashon Island.


“I worked closely with Scot Shawver and his team (Briana and Vanessa) and when I say team I mean they work as a team. Tenacious, professional, real human beings interested very much in the progress and status of my MVA case. They got results that exceeded my expectations and fought hard to make it all happen.
