Scott Learned, Attorney
Boise native and graduate of Boise High School, Scott graduated from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, where he studied math, physics, music, and French. Scott graduated law school from the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. He returned to Idaho to begin his practice in 2001.
Scott started his practice with Hall, Farley, Oberrecht & Blanton. He handled complex civil litigation, primarily in the areas of employment, construction, insurance, and health care. He served as the primary attorney on hundreds of matters, including bench and jury trials in both federal and state district courts. He has also handled appellate matters pending before the Idaho Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. His clients included several large food service and agriculture companies, a local hospital, several insurance companies, and many small businesses in Southern Idaho.
In 2006, Scott decided to leave Hall Farley to pursue other interests. Beginning in August 2006, Scott taught high school math, physics, and theater at Riverstone International School, a private K-12 International Baccalaureate school, where he also frequently led wilderness backpacking trips for students.
In the summer of 2011, Scott left teaching to return to the practice of law. Since then, he has handled a wide array of matters for his Idaho clients, including consumer protection, family law, employment, personal injury, disability rights, and administrative claims. Scott's practice now focuses primarily on estate planning, including wills, trusts, living wills, and powers of attorney, and on probate matters.
In addition to his legal work, Scott plays drums and sings in a bands, trains for triathlons, and spends time with his two children. Scott is a member of the Board of Directors of the Rotary Club of Boise.
