Scott Mitchell Fischer Partner


Scott Mitchell Fischer joined the law offices of Gordon & Partners nearly 20 years ago after having spent a number of prior years working as a defense lawyer.

Scott is a competitor by nature.  He is well known for passionately and aggressively advocating for the rights of his clients, including victims of nursing home abuse and neglect, assisted living facility abuse and neglect, hospital negligence, home health care negligence and victims of serious motor vehicle accidents.

Scott has an established track record of success. The defense industry is well aware of Scott's abilities and they often try to settle cases to avoid facing him in Court. When cases do not settle out of Court, Scott is always well prepared to obtain justice for his clients at trial and he has obtained jury verdicts totaling many millions of dollars.

Scott recently conducted a three-week jury trial on behalf of a 97-year-old woman who died after suffering a heat stroke at an assisted living facility. The trial resulted in a verdict of $6,000,000 for Scott's client. Below is a video of a news release regarding the $6,000,000 verdict:

Scott also recently won a trial against a hospital in a case where Scott's client fell out of the hospital bed and suffered a broken hip. The jury awarded over $900,000 to Scott's client. The trial was televised on the Courtroom View Network, below is a video of Scott's closing argument from that trial:

Scott is also competitive outside of the courtroom. He challenges himself with strenuous conditioning that includes running, swimming, boxing and weight training.  Scott believes his clients are best represented by a lawyer who is both mentally and physically strong, empowering him to be laser-focused on winning cases. 

Scott has handled many high-profile cases. Below are videos of investigative news reports from a few of Scott’s cases as well as links to numerous articles from some of Scott's notable lawsuits and verdicts.
