Scott Bodkin

Scott primarily practices in the areas of business and estate planning law. His plans distinguish themselves by putting a particular emphasis on finding tax and asset protection opportunities for clients.  Scott serves as the Secretary/Treasurer for the Denton County REPTL Section, and has served on the board of the Denton County Young Lawyers Association since 2013. Scott is licensed in Texas and New York and generally appreciates the latter not being held against him.

Personal

Scott is a North Texas native. Despite his "radio voice" he spends very little time in the courtroom. He is also a bit of a chess and technology nerd, which surprises no one who has met him.

Education

Scott is a proud Longhorn, BA class of 2004, a Tulane University Law School Graduate, and has a Master of Laws in Taxation from Northwestern University School of Law. He was the top student in Oil and Gas Taxation at Tulane and on the Dean's List at Texas and Northwestern.
