I have known Scott Berry for several years. Even though we met as adversaries in the courtroom, I quickly found out that Scott is a great guy. He is a compassionate, thoughtful and skilled attorney and he takes great care of his clients. Scott practices law in Scottsboro, Alabama and is well-respected throughout the state of Alabama. He went into the practice of law after spending several years as a schoolteacher.
Scott and his family have had a rough couple of years and the last time I saw Scott in court everything was good. I just received this jarring news and it is best explained by the information at a GoFundMe page set up by his friends.
Given the fact that my wife Patty went through her own bout with cancer last year, we are intimately familiar with the fear, terror and worry that comes along with this fight. Frankly, I can’t imagine her having to go through this twice.
Thank you for any help and prayers you can send to Scott Berry and his family.
