Scott Smith's Headshot
Scott Smith began his career working with multi-million-dollar corporations and insurance companies throughout all phases of litigation. That work, however, wasn’t what he was passionate about: he wanted to help those in need. Today, he does just that at Arnold & Itkin LLP where he helps those who have suffered catastrophic injuries and the loss of loved ones seek the justice they deserve.
“Suffering a catastrophic injury can be overwhelming physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially. You need a firm that is going to work for you to get you back on the road to recovery. At Arnold & Itkin, we strive to do what is right by holding the responsible parties accountable. I am proud to work for a firm that is willing to take cases the distance on behalf of their clients.

Biography

Profile

Prior to joining Arnold & Itkin, Scott began his career by defending multi-million dollar corporations and insurance companies throughout all phases of litigation. 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. Scott applies the experience he learned as a defense attorney to his work at Arnold & Itkin. In doing so, Scott is able to identify and circumvent many of the tactics these companies employ throughout litigation to avoid potential liability.

Scott earned his Bachelor’s of Science degree 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 United States Securities and Exchange Commission where he investigated entities participating in fraudulent corporate practices. Scott uses that same investigative mindset while seeking justice on behalf of Arnold & Itkin’s clients.

Outside of the office, Scott enjoys spending time in the Utah mountains with his wife and three children.
