Brooke Scott

Brooke is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and North Carolina Central University School of Law. She is a newly licensed attorney and practices both criminal defense and family law. During law school, she interned with the office of the North Carolina Appellate Defender and the Matta Law Firm, focusing on criminal appeals and immigration defense, respectively. She was a legal writing scholar and attended an intensive summer course on international human rights law at Cambridge University.

Brooke spent her childhood arguing with her parents about not wanting to become a lawyer even though they believed she would be a great one since she loved to argue more than anyone they knew. She was born and raised in Eastern North Carolina but has called Raleigh home for most of her adult life. Brooke speaks fluent French and un poco de español. She is a lifestyle expert on millennial culture and enjoys brunch, spin classes, red wine, traveling, frequenting the dog park with her four-legged daughter, Lucy, and exploring the triangle’s many breweries. She is an avid reader and is passionate about social activism.
