During her final year, Ms. Scott-Lynn worked as a law clerk for the Law Office of Glenn G. Gomer, a staff legal office of Liberty Mutual Insurance Company. She was ultimately assigned to assist an attorney who handled complex general liability cases.

Since 2009, Ms. Scott-Lynn has not only grown a very successful marital and family law practice, but has been an active member in the legal community. She served as the chair of the Family Law Section of the St. Petersburg Bar Association from 2012 – 2016. Her hard work and dedication earned her the “Rocking Chair Award” in 2015.
