Scott Smith began his career working with multi-million-dollar corporations and insurance companies throughout all phases of litigation. However, that work wasn’t what he was passionate about. He wanted to help those who need assistance the most. Today, he does just that at Arnold & Itkin, where he helps those who have suffered catastrophic injuries and the loss of loved ones seek the justice they deserve. Scott uses his prior experience to level the playing field for clients facing large companies.
Before joining Arnold & Itkin, Scott began his career by defending multi-million dollar corporations and insurance companies throughout all litigation phases. He quickly realized that he was not fulfilling one of the primary reasons he decided to become an attorney—to help those in need. Since joining Arnold & Itkin, Scott has found that passion in seeking justice for those who have been injured by the wrongdoing of others. He applies the experience he learned as a defense attorney to his work at Arnold & Itkin. In doing so, Scott can identify and circumvent many of the tactics these companies employ throughout litigation to avoid potential liability. He knows the tactics that large companies use, and he’s ready to fight them for his clients' benefit.
Scott earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Utah Valley University. He went on to attend law school at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law. While in law school, Scott participated in various activities including moot court, trial advocacy, and law review.
Scott also completed externships with the Utah Court of Appeals and the Utah Attorney General’s office. During his 3L year, he completed a year-long honors program with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission where he investigated entities participating in fraudulent corporate practices. Scott uses that same investigative mindset while seeking justice for clients. No case is too challenging, and he’s always ready to provide the care and attention one needs for success.
Outside of the office, Scott enjoys spending time in the Utah mountains with his wife and three children.
