Scott Schuette's practice focuses in the areas of construction law, eminent domain, general litigation, and dispute resolution. The breadth of his practice allows him to be involved in a construction case one day and then transition into a land use question the next. There’s always something new to learn, which makes his job not just interesting, but exciting.
Due to the nature of his practice, Scott is constantly in contact with local agencies and boards. This allows him to stay connected with the community and guide his clients in future developments and transactions. Scott's clients expect and deserve representation that pursues all avenues to reach a positive outcome. Scott prides himself on being responsive to every client 100% of the time and knocking on every door that may lead to a positive result.
As a native of Lexington, a graduate of Lexington Catholic, and a lifelong member of Christ the King Church, Scott is deeply connected and invested in the Lexington community. Being a third-generation resident of Lexington has provided him with the background and insight to know how the local community interacts and evolves. Spending seven years in Florida for his education proved to Scott how unique Lexington is and motivated him to return and serve his community. Scott prides himself on being an active member of the community and giving back at every opportunity.
Clients hire attorneys during a time of need or uncertainty – they are looking for solutions to problems, and they expect and deserve results. When Scott responds to a client’s issue, he keeps in mind the bigger picture. He explores every possible detail, knowing it could change the entire dynamics of a case. There are two sides in every dispute, from simple negotiations up through litigation, and knowing that there is a determined individual working hard on the other side of the table pushes him to work that much harder.
While continuing his basketball career at Rollins College, Scott learned the value of hard work and discipline. These values were honed when he served as Staff Attorney for both the Honorable John Reynolds and Honorable Julie Muth Goodman in the Fayette Circuit Court. Working for two judges provided him with insight on the inner workings of the Court system and how different judges approach the same legal question.
Member of Christ the King Church
