W. Stephen "Steve" Scott
ATX Probate Attorney
Steve Scott knew early in life he was hard-wired to help those in need. In particular, he knew he had a great compassion for those going through difficult circumstances and a deep desire to help.
This predisposition and his particular academic aptitude led him to pursue a career in the law, which he began in 1983 at the age of 23, having graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin (1980) and the University of Houston Law Center (1983).
A major focus of Steve Scott's law practice is, and has been, to compassionately help families navigate the legal process of transferring a deceased loved one's assets to rightful heirs through probate or non-probate alternatives.
He also focuses his practice on helping his clients put their financial and personal affairs in order to best protect their families, loved ones, and assets in the event of death or disability. He helps clients accomplish these goals through proper estate planning.
As an experienced estate planning and probate attorney, and as a husband, father, and grandfather, Steve Scott knows all too well the importance of not putting off completing important things - like our estate plan. He is thankful he is given the privilege and responsibility to bring his clients peace of mind in this important area of their lives and to guide surviving loved ones through the probate process when the need arises.
