Meet Scott Green’s Law Firm

Based out of Chicago, I have spent the last seven years specializing in litigating insurance disputes on behalf of policyholders. My clients include not only commercial and residential property owners who have suffered a denied or underpaid claim, but also the contractors and public adjusters working tirelessly on their behalf.
In today’s legal climate, the time and costs associated with litigation encourage policyholders to walk away from denied and underpaid claims. When they do make the decision to litigate, insurance companies bet that their insureds will accept pennies on the dollar, rather than fight the case all the way to the end. That is why my top priority in every case is to get it to trial in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
While I will never guarantee a specific result, I do promise to always be forthright with my clients about the strengths and weaknesses of their case, the pros and cons of proceeding with litigation, and what I see as the likelihood of success should they go to trial. Diligence coupled with honest and transparent communication are the traits that allow my clients to make educated decisions about how to proceed with their case. Consequently, this allows them to feel good about the end-result, whether it be a settlement or a jury-verdict.

Law School

I first became interested in insurance litigation while attending law school at Depaul College of Law in Chicago, Illinois. During law school, I clerked for CNA Insurance Company’s workers’ compensation division. At CNA I had the opportunity to work with wonderful people and was exposed to the inner workings of the insurance industry. However, I also came to understand the vast resources insurers have at their disposal to shift risk back to their policyholders. With this realization I discovered my passion: helping the underdog insured take on the goliath insurance industry. The experience I gained working on“theother side” has been invaluable in shaping my practice to what it is today.

 

Undergraduate Work

I graduated from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor with a B.A. in Political Science. As an undergraduate I spent a summer clerking for then Circuit Court Judge Stuart R. Berger in my hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. My experience with Judge Berger, who now sits on Maryland’s Court of Special Appeals, taught me how to apply the law to the facts of a given case, to write persuasively, and to think about a case from both sides.

Personal

My childhood was spent in Baltimore attending Orioles, Ravens, and University of Maryland Terrapin basketball games with my dad and learning the history of rock & roll with my mom(with an emphasis on The Grateful Dead). I spent my summers caddying, selling pit beef sandwiches at Camden Yards and vacationing with my parents and younger sister in Ocean City. During high school and undergrad, I spent countless hours working in my father’s law office, honing the skills and thought processes that guide me to this day.
After undergrad, I moved to Chicago to attend law school and eventually met my wife, Lindsay, fellow Michigan alumnus and Detroit-native. When I’m not practicing law, I enjoy travelling, golfing and exploring Chicago’s restaurant scene with my wife and park scene with our dog, Norman.
