Scott D. Winston

When he was approximately 12 years old, Scott was hit by a motorcycle while crossing the street in his hometown of Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Driven by a young man with no insurance, the motorcyclist was speeding when he came over a small hill and ran into Scott on the right side, resulting in several broken bones in his right arm and leg.  During several surgeries over the course of the following decade, Scott learned first-hand of the life changing impact an accident can have on people and their families.  These hard lessons led Scott to attend law school at Marquette University where he learned how to help others who suffered terrible losses. 

In over fifteen (15) years of practicing law, Scott has dedicated his time and efforts to helping other individuals and families who have suffered injuries and/or losses of family members.  Recognizing Laufenberg, Stombaugh & Jassak’s commitment and dedication to fighting for the rights of injured individuals and families, Scott joined the firm in December 2011.  From the largest auto insurance companies to some of the largest corporations in the nation, Scott continues to fight for people injured by careless drivers and defective products.
