About Scott Higgins

Scott Higgins grew up in Slidell, Louisiana but has been proud to call Lafayette his home since graduating from LSU Law School in 2000. Scott is licensed to practice law before all Louisiana District Courts, The United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and all United States District Courts in Louisiana. Scott is also licensed to practice law in Texas.


Although he has received many awards and been recognized multiple times for his professionalism and skill, Scott says his greatest career successes have been the friendships he has forged with clients from all walks of life.

When he isn’t advocating for his clients, Scott can be found traveling with his wife and two boys, playing golf, hunting or fishing. You will also find him wearing black and gold on Sundays, as he is a life long Saints fan, even in the bag-head days.
