Robert Scott

“One of the most experienced workers' compensation attorneys in New Mexico.”

After graduating from high school in New York, I attended the College of William & Mary on an ROTC scholarship and earned a degree in Spanish. I served four years in the United States Army as an infantry lieutenant, first at Ft. Benning GA and then at Ft. Ord, CA.

I moved to New Mexico in 1987 and began working on a master's degree in Latin American Studies at the University of New Mexico. The next year I started at the law school and graduated in 1991 with a joint law degree and MA.

From 1991 to 1992 I worked as a law clerk for Justice Seth Montgomery at the New Mexico Supreme Court. I then joined the Sager Law Firm and represented employers in workers' compensation cases.

Alan Malott (now Judge Malott) hired me about two years later. I began my work as a plaintiffs' lawyer at that time. In 1995, I opened my own office. About six years ago, my wife, Kris, and I decided to join forces as Bogardus & Scott, Attorneys at Law, P.C.

One of my main goals is to help people injured at work and injured by the negligence of others. I also represent employees who have suffered discrimination at work, been wrongfully terminated or who have not been paid for the work they did.

I am active at the New Mexico Legislature on issues affecting injured workers.

I am a member of the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association.

I enjoy backpacking, road and mountain biking, rock climbing and eating good food and drinking good beer. I am the Scoutmaster of Troop 29, although I plan on stepping down sometime in the summer of 2014. I am very proud to say that my youngest son, Alex, became an Eagle Scout in May 2014.

Kris and I have three adult children, besides Alex, who, unfortunately, do not live in Albuquerque, but are all happy and successful.
