Trial Results

Rather than cherry-picking a good result or two, we choose to post every trial we’ve ever had – win, lose or draw. That keeps us accountable, and it keeps clients informed when deciding who to trust with their future. The list below represents every case that McKenzie Scott has taken to trial since 2001. You’ll see that approximately 3 out of 4 cases have ended in a not-guilty verdict or dismissal, a mistrial, or a reversal on appeal—a standard of success that is second to none.
