Sarah Scott specializes in resolving complex insurance coverage issues in both first-party and third-party contexts. An experienced litigator, she has successfully tried cases to a jury and obtained favorable defense verdicts – including multiple cases where the jury awarded less than one-tenth the damages requested by plaintiffs.

Sarah graduated with honors from Baylor Law School in 2013. While at Baylor, she won multiple awards for her brief-writing and advocacy skills, including a national award for best brief at Emory Law’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Competition, as well as an award for best brief in Advanced Appellate Practice. Sarah was also selected to serve as an executive editor for the Baylor Law Review and received the Baylor Law Review Award for her time dedicated to the publication. She was active in extracurricular activities, serving as the president of the Women’s Legal Society and volunteering for the Texas chapter of the Innocence Project.
Before law school, Sarah graduated summa cum laude from Southern Methodist University where she majored in English, Spanish, and journalism. She was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society in her junior year. She was also selected for the Hyer Society, which nominates candidates from the top 4 percent of the student body who are chosen by a faculty committee after submitting an essay and application. Additionally, she was selected as the print Journalism Student of the Year and nominated for Senior Woman of the Year – an honor given to only 8 students each year.
