Murray Guari Trial Attorneys Partner Scott Perry was recently appointed to The Florida Bar’s Standing Committee on Professionalism.
The Standing Committee on Professionalism (SCOP) assists the Center for Professionalism in implementing programs, events, and activities to promote professionalism throughout Florida. SCOP’s mission is “To promote the fundamental ideals and values of professionalism within the legal system and to instill those ideals of character, competence, commitment, and civility in all those persons serving and seeking to serve therein.”
The Florida Bar Center for Professionalism was approved by The Florida Bar Board of Governors on May 17, 1996, in response to a perceived national decline in lawyers’ professionalism. It was an effort to raise the aspirational goals of all lawyers within Florida by defining a professionalism program and dedicating resources. Subsequently, the Center for Professionalism and the Florida Supreme Court’s Commission on Professionalism were created by Administrative Order AOSC1-50 on July 19, 1996, as a joint project of the Supreme Court, The Florida Bar, and the Committee on Professionalism.
Scott Perry emphasized the significance of promoting and upholding professionalism within the legal system, stating, “Professionalism benefits not only legal professionals, but also their clients and the broader community.”
Scott represents clients who have been injured due to the negligence of others. He exclusively handles personal injury and wrongful death matters from their inception through trial, with a focus on litigation in both State and Federal Court – being admitted to all Federal Courts in Florida.
Scott is a member of the Florida Bar, the American Association for Justice, the Florida Justice Association, and the Palm Beach County Justice Association. He is currently a Director on the Board of Directors of the Palm Beach County Bar Association and serves as a Committee member of the Professionalism Committee (2015-2023, including Co-Chairing the 2019 New Attorney Breakfast) and the Circuit Civil Practice Committee (2017-2023). He has Co-Chaired sessions for the Palm Beach County Bar Association’s Bench Bar Conference three times (Personal Injury 2015-2017 and Young Lawyers 2019-2020). He was the Past-President of the Young Lawyers’ Section of the Palm Beach County Bar Association for the 2019-2020 term.
