At Aegis Law we zealously advocate and protect our clients’ interests. The firm takes its name from Greek mythology, and specifically the Aegis, a shield which bore the head of Medusa. The Aegis struck terror into those it confronted, while offering strong defense to those it protected. Similarly, at Aegis we are your first line of protection, and your best and final line of defense. The firm’s guiding principles are represented in our logo. The Helmet and the Shield represent our resolve to battle for our clients, while the scales of justice symbolize our commitment to the pursuit of justice.
Nigel S. Scott, Esq.
The firm’s principal attorney, Nigel S. Scott, Esquire, began his legal training in the Delaware County Office of the Public Defender, where he represented underprivileged individuals charged with crimes. Nigel then continued his development as a trial lawyer, when he tried misdemeanors and minor felonies as a prosecutor in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. The combined experience allowed Nigel to gain valuable experience and insight into both perspectives across the aisle, as a defense attorney and later as a prosecutor.
Nigel’s litigation expertise is also reflected in his eight years of service as a court appointed arbitrator in Pennsylvania’s First Judicial District. The combined experience has served Nigel well, making him a skilled and assured litigator, with a compassion and commitment to justice. The latter is born of his own immigrant past, which serves as the impetus for his immigration practice today. Nigel sees himself in every one of his clients, and is commited to helping them legally obtain the same opportunities which he has had.
As part of our commitment to equal justice, Nigel dedicates a minimum of 50 hours each year to pro bono service, being named to Pennsylvania’s First Judicial District’s pro bono Honor Roll for each of the past eight years. As a firm we are honored to continue in service to vulnerable communities.
