F. Scott Lucas
For the past decade, Scott's practice has focused on personal injury, catastrophic accident and wrongful death cases. However, Scott spent the first years of his legal career representing national insurance companies and corporations. During that time, Scott defended motor vehicle collisions, assaults, pharmaceutical errors and asbestos cases. The asbestos defense work was particularly complex and involved the defense of various companies that had distributed asbestos containing products during the 1930s through 1970s. This was mass tort litigation with specialized calendars and specially assigned judges in both the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, which handled all cases arising in the State of Maryland, and the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Scott was a key player in this litigation often taking lead in depositions that involved in excess of thirty attorneys and in cases for which many millions of dollars were at stake. Scott handled hundreds of cases and became intimately familiar with the decision making processes used by major insurance carriers evaluating and handling personal injury claims.
In 2006, Scott decided he would rather represent real, injured people instead of corporations and insurance companies. Since then, Scott has committed himself solely to advancing the cause of those injured by the negligence of others.
Scott has successfully litigated a wide range of complex cases including trucking accidents, wrongful death claims, motorcycle accidents, sexual assaults, dog bite cases, fire cases, premises liability cases based upon a landlord’s failure to provide adequate security in high crime apartment complexes, serious motor vehicle collisions and many more. Scott has obtained life changing financial results for his clients including multi-seven figure settlements and judgments.
Scott is committed to taking on even the most complex, challenging and novel of cases. If there is an opportunity to make life better for his clients, Scott will accept the challenge.
Scott, a lifelong resident of Maryland and the District of Columbia, graduated from Towson State University in Maryland and the Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, in the District of Columbia. While at Catholic, Scott served as treasurer of the Black Law Students Association and was a member of the Thurgood Marshall Inn of Court.
Scott is admitted to Maryland Bar, the District of Columbia Bar, the United States District Court for the District of Maryland and the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. He is also a member of the District of Columbia Trial Lawyers Association, Prince George’s County Bar Association and National Trial Lawyers Association.
Scott resides in Prince George’s County with his wife, two children and grandson.
