Scott Ferriss is an associate with Aafedt, Forde, Gray, Monson & Hager, P.A. Scott returns to the workers’ compensation defense after two years as a plaintiff’s attorney. Prior to his work at a large plaintiff firm, Scott spent four years representing insurance companies and employers in workers’ compensation claims through all stages of litigation.
Scott spent his first year of college at Colorado State University studying civil engineering. However, he quickly learned that the math involved in engineering was not as interesting as political science discussions. Upon transferring to Augsburg College in Minneapolis, he began his studies in political science and economics. Scott was then selected to continue his studies at American University in Washington, DC for a year before returning to Augsburg.
Following his undergraduate studies, Scott served as Legislative Assistant to a United States Congressman in Washington, DC covering legislative issues that included transportation, education, environment, healthcare, and telecommunications. After nearly five years of working for the Congressman, Scott and his then betrothed, Kristen, decided to go to law school and attended William Mitchell College of Law (He does not recommend planning a wedding during your first year of law school).
Scott is admitted to practice in all Minnesota State Courts and the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. He is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association.
Outside of work, Scott is passionate about golf, hot peppers (anything hot/spicy), railroads, and The Beatles. When he is not golfing or working, he enjoys spending time with his wife, two daughters, and two cats, Ringo and Eleanor Rigby.
