Attorney Awards


Scott Zappolo has built his practice on hard work and a determination to be worthy of those who entrust him with their significant legal matters. His many successful legal battles include representation of a small, independent salesman against a major retailing chain, which resulted in a multi-million dollar verdict; defense and dismissal at trial of a million-dollar claim in a shareholder dispute; defense of a manufacturer in a $20 million product defect case before the International Court of Arbitration in London, Great Britain; and oversight and strategy of a horrific wrongful death matter, defended by insurance under a reservation of rights.

Although he is based in South Florida, his practice requires traveling throughout the country on various matters, most of which involve complex business litigation and related insurance matters. His corporate clients range from mom-and-pop businesses to much larger corporations, all of whom are treated with a distinctive hands-on approach. Scott is a regular speaker at legal education events, covering topics like legal drafting, trial skills, and evidentiary matters. He was selected as a Top Lawyer in the areas of civil practice, corporate, and business litigation by the South Florida Legal Guide in 2012 to 2018.
