Congratulations to our 2020 scholarship recipient, Shannon Canitz!

Attorneys at Scott Pryor Law aggressively fight for their clients every day in many different types of personal injury cases. They have the dedication and perseverance it takes to help their clients maximize the justice they deserve.
Ever since the beginning of his career, former U.S. Marine and managing attorney, Scott Pryor, has loved fighting for his clients in the courtroom. Pryor understands the impact one can make when standing up for what is right and he is always prepared to do so. Having the ability to stand up for oneself is not easy, nor something that comes naturally to everyone.
