Scott Ferriss comes to Fields Law from a prominent workers’ compensation defense firm where he spent four years representing large insurance companies and employers in workers’ compensation claims. Through this experience, he gained knowledge of the way the insurance companies handle claims and their tactics to delay and deny claims.

His insight into the way insurance companies handle claims is invaluable for his clients. Scott knows the approach of the defense and helps guide his clients through all the hoops and hurdles the insurance companies make the injured go through. His compassion and ability to communicate effectively make him a strong advocate for his clients.

Scott spent his first year of college at Colorado State University studying civil engineering. However, he quickly learned that the math involved in engineering was not as interesting as his political science class. Upon transferring to Augsburg College in Minneapolis, he began his studies in political science and economics. Scott was then selected to continue his studies at American University in Washington, DC for a year before returning to Augsburg.

Following his undergraduate studies, Scott served as Legislative Assistant to a United States Congressman in Washington, DC covering legislative issues that included transportation, education, environment, healthcare, and telecommunications. After nearly five years of working for the Congressman, Scott and his then betrothed, Kristen, decided to go to law school and attended William Mitchell College of Law.

Scott is admitted to practice in all Minnesota State Courts and the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. He is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association.

Outside of helping people through his work, Scott currently serves as the President of his homeowner’s association and is passionate about golf, railroads, hot peppers/sauces, and The Beatles. When he is not golfing, he enjoys spending time with his wife, two daughters, and two cats, Ringo and Eleanor Rigby.
