Scott Ledford

Scott Ledford’s legal career has been varied and diverse enough to equip him with the necessary tools for handling your life problems.

After starting out in general private practice, Scott Ledford served as an attorney for the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) from 1998 through 2002. During that time, he worked his way up from a contract position and rose to the level of Senior Attorney, helping to hire incoming staff, advising both the public and the bar regarding intellectual property procedure and serving as a mentor to incoming attorneys.

In 2002, Mr. Ledford left the USPTO for a position as a staff attorney with the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance, where his practice focused primarily on representing State boards and commissions in the context of professional licensing. During that time, he re-wrote the state’s boxing laws (his revision passed through the General Assembly and was signed into law without changes), represented the state’s boxing and racing program through multiple high-profile events, including a heavyweight championship that was broadcast worldwide on HBO and represented the Private Protective Services board (security guards). He was also on the front lines of the fight to maintain the highest professional standards for residential and commercial real estate contractors while representing the Board for Licensing Surveyors, the Board of Contractors, and multiple programs within the State Fire Marshal’s office.

Since leaving the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance, Scott Ledford has focused much of his practice on family law (including divorce and child support enforcement (both for parents and for the state), consumer protection, and intellectual property (copyrights and trademarks).

Since becoming an attorney in 1998, Mr. Ledford has learned the ropes and provides the professionalism, experience and technological savvy of a large law firm, the insight of experienced in-house counsel, and delivers it all with the personalized touch and flexibility of a solo practitioner.
