Providing the Top-Notch Representation You Deserve for Your Injury Case

Scott Davenport J.D., M.B.A.

Denton Litigation Attorney

A native of Rhode Island, Attorney Scott Davenport started practicing commercial litigation in Houston in 1994 at a boutique litigation firm. There he represented manufacturers, restaurants, financial institutions, car dealerships, oil and gas providers, service providers, and other businesses in many complicated personal injury matters and commercial disputes.

Scott joined a boutique litigation firm led by Mack Glover in 1998 where he expanded his practice to represent those injured in commercial vehicle and trucking accident, car collisions, premises liability matters, and negligent actions that led to death or catastrophic injury, as well as handling bad faith insurance claims. To this day, he acts as outside general counsel for many companies throughout Texas.

Because of this experience, Scott is proud to be recognized as a Board Certified Attorney in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 2005. He has obtained this because of his distinguished counsel and demonstrated knowledge of the law. He’s substantial experience has been tried and tested and he is recognized for his competence and legal acumen in the field of personal injury law. Fewer than 10% of all lawyers in the State of Texas are Board Certified.

In addition to his certification, Scott has been AV Preeminent® Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® since 2004, which is the highest peer-reviewed rating possible. He has also received numerous awards in his career including being recognized as a Texas Super Lawyer in Personal Injury Law; “Houston’s Top Lawyers for the People for Personal Injury Litigation” by both H Texas Magazine and Houstonia Magazine; a Top Rated AV Preeminent Lawyer with a practice area in Commercial Litigation by The American Lawyer Magazine; “Nation’s Top One Percent” by National Association of Distinguished Counsel ; “Top Attorneys in Texas” byTexas Monthly; and Best of the Best by The American Registry .

In 2017, Scott was invited to become a member in prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates (“ABOTA”) , a select group of trial lawyers whose primary purpose is to promote and pressure the civil jury trial and to elevate the standards of integrity, honor, and courtesy in the legal profession.

Scott received Transportation Worker Identification Credentials, or T.W.I.C., from the U.S. Coast Guard and Transportation Security Administration. TWIC allows Scott unescorted access to outer continental shelf facilities, secure ports, and regulated vessels by the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA), as well as U.S. Coast Guard credentialed merchant mariners.

Scott has been married for more than two decades and is active at St. Martha’s Catholic Church. In his time away from the office, he coaches girl’s youth soccer and served as Cub Scout Pack Cubmaster and Boy Scout Troop 1922 Scoutmaster for 8+ years. For 20 years, he was a cast member for a non-profit organization called Nightcourt, a “Broadway-esque” musical program performed by local lawyers. This annual production has raised over $1 million for local legal charities. For more than 6 years, he served as the Executive Producer for Nightcourt and in 2018, was voted to serve on the Board of Directors for the non-profit organization.
