Associate, Complex Litigation
Scott M. Duxbury joined the personal injury, medical malpractice and workers’ compensation law firm of Goldstein Bender & Romanoff as a student law clerk and immediately contributed his research and writing skills to the firm’s Complex Litigation Department. He transitioned to an associate attorney after passing the Illinois State Bar Examination. Scott continues to work as a member of Goldstein Bender & Romanoff’s “complex lit” team where he has recovered millions of dollars for his clients.
Scott specializes in the areas of medical malpractice, medical device and products liability litigation, nursing home negligence and all other matters where someone has suffered catastrophic injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one. Personally, Scott takes pride in the opportunity to vindicate the rights of ordinary people that have been harmed by the careless and sometimes intentional conduct of the formidable health care providers and billion-dollar corporations that he often faces in court.
Scott graduated cum laude from The John Marshall Law School. He was a Dean’s Scholar and received the CALI Award for Future Excellence in Constitutional Law I. Before joining Goldstein Bender & Romanoff as a law clerk, Scott served as a legal writing teaching assistant, a research assistant for a law review of class action litigation, and ex-terned for the now Presiding Law Division Judge James P. Flannery. Scott also represented John Marshall at the August A. Rendigs National Products Liability Moot Court Competition. Upon graduating from law school, Scott was recognized for achieving the highest first year grade point average in his division and was accepted into the Order of John Marshall for his academic scholarship.
Scott currently resides in Schaumburg with his wife, Elizabeth, and daughter, Dylan. He is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association and Illinois Trial Lawyer’s Association. He is admitted to practice in the State of Illinois.
