Scott Snellings grew up in Plano, Texas.  Scott attended Baylor University's School of Law where he was a member of the Baylor Law Review, Order of the Barristers and Abner McCall chapter of the Inns of Court. Upon graduation, Scott joined Hartline, Dacus, Barger, Dreyer & Kern, L.L.P.  There, Scott’s litigation practice focused primarily on personal injury and product defects. 

Since co-founding The Burress Snellings Law Firm, Scott’s practice has shifted from representing automotive and insurance companies to representing people who are injured or have lost loved ones due to someone else's negligence.  Scott dedicates his practice to helping serious personal injury victims of catastrophic 18 wheeler crashes, motorcycle wrecks and car crashes as well as victims of drunk drivers and dangerous or defective products.
