Scott A. Parsons, a distinguished senior partner at O’Connor, Parsons, Lane & Noble, LLC, has been practicing law since 1984. He is widely acknowledged as one of the foremost legal professionals in his field.

Mr. Parsons excels in high-profile plaintiffs' personal injury cases, focusing on major automobile negligence, construction incidents, and medical malpractice. In a notable achievement in June 2021, he settled a challenging personal injury lawsuit for $17.165 million. This case revolved around a client who suffered bilateral above-the-knee amputations after being hit by an uninsured dump truck. Mr. Parsons skillfully built a case against the subcontractor who employed the trucker, as well as the Project Manager and General Contractor, for their failure to verify the trucker's insurance coverage.

Mr. Parsons successfully represented a plaintiff in a railroad accident case, securing a $6 million settlement. He achieved a significant $6 million verdict in a medical malpractice case related to an incorrect pain injection, setting a precedent in New Jersey law that has since greatly aided plaintiffs' attorneys in obtaining larger verdicts. Additionally, he represented a client in a lawsuit against a rehabilitation facility, which was settled for $6 million, and won a $5.15 million verdict in a case where a nosebleed resulted in a stroke.

Mr. Parsons is a member and has also served as the president-elect of the esteemed American Board of Trial Attorneys (ABOTA), New Jersey chapter. He was chosen as a faculty member for the ABOTA Trial College at Princeton and Harvard University. Additionally, he has been involved in the ABOTA Masters in Trial program.
