Justin Scott is a passionate attorney who has dedicated his entire career to serving the elderly. Over the years, he’s improved the quality of life for countless clients by establishing future plans for care and addressing legal, financial, and clinical issues or concerns with a holistic approach to solving problems. It all started when he was in college working with the elderly at a durable medical equipment store, where his love of serving this group grew into a calling. “I knew that I wanted to be a lawyer, and I thought if I could use my law degree to help the elderly population, it would just be the perfect career for me,” he explains. He’s since penned nine books on elder law and earned accolades such as the Top Tier Lawyers designation, a distinction reserved for the top two percent of the nation’s lawyers. In 2018, Justin founded Scott Counsel in New Jersey, where he leads a team of legal minds who are like guiding lights, helping families navigate areas of elder law.
With offices located throughout the state—and a new campus set to open later this year that will provide clients access to classes and resources—Justin and his team are aiming to be a one-stop shop for all aging-related issues, including long-term care planning, asset preservation, Medicaid qualification, and probate. It is precisely this kind of unwavering commitment to serving people that Justin is known for, and so many rely upon. “We believe every life deserves a plan, and we’re dedicated to helping families plan for the future every day,” he states. From drafting powers of attorney, health care proxies, and last wills, trusts and testaments to handling real estate transactions, Justin delivers tailored service based on integrity and respect. “I want my clients to think of me as a good friend who happens to know a lot about elder law.”
Justin holds a certification in life resource planning and has been named Top Attorney and Awesome Attorney by South Jersey Magazine.
