Scott graduated cum laude from Northern Illinois University's College of Law in 1994 and joined his father in the practice of law at that time. He received his undergraduate degree in accounting from St. John's University. Scott's accounting skills led seamlessly to his primary legal focus - estate planning, probate and trust administration, guardianship and business law.
At Seraphin & Rogers, Ltd., Scott seeks to apply the law to each individual client’s situation. Scott has a firm belief that as an attorney, he can guide his clients through life’s most challenging moments. When a client needs assistance in administering a loved one’s estate, “The first thing I want all clients to know is that they are not alone, and that my job is to help them through a difficult time.” When a client desires to create or update their estate plan, Scott guides them through the various options that are available. “With my understanding of both federal and state tax law, estate planning, trusts and wills, I’m able to employ a full range of tools to assist my clients.”
A lifelong St. Charles resident, Scott enjoys spending time in his community. He and his wife, Linda, have five children and are involved members of St. Patrick Catholic Church. Scott is the Chairman of the church’s Finance Council and has coached several teams at St. Patrick Catholic School.
Scott is a past precinct committeeman of St. Charles Township in Kane County. He is also a past president and current member of the Fox Valley Estate Planning Council. His other professional associations include the Illinois State Bar Association, the Kane County Bar Association and the Kane County Bar Association Probate Committee.
In his leisure time, Scott enjoys fishing trips to Canada and hiking with his family in Colorado.
