SCOTT BURROUGHS was born in Columbus, Ohio and grew up in London, Kentucky. He eventually found his way back to Columbus to attend college at The Ohio State University from 2004 to 2008, graduating magna cum laude, with a B.A. in History. He earned his J.D. in 2011 from the University of Kentucky College of Law, where he was a member of the National Moot Court team, Moot Court treasurer, and Vice-President for the Environmental Law Society. Scott began his legal career with a judicial clerkship with the Honorable Judge Gregory A. Lay of Kentucky’s 27th Judicial Circuit. Following his clerkship, he practiced for four years with a Louisville insurance defense firm successfully defending claims at the Administrative level, Court of Appeals, and the Kentucky Supreme Court. He joined O’Bryan, Brown & Toner in August 2016. His primary area of practice is insurance defense litigation with a particular focus in medical malpractice defense and workers compensation defense

In his free time, Scott enjoys time with his wife, Becca, their son, and their dog, Bodhi. He also enjoys spending time with extended family and friends, playing hockey, playing golf, hiking, fishing, kayaking, and really any and all other outdoor or sporting pursuits.
