Attorney John B. Scofield, Jr.

For over 20 years, John Scofield has advanced the rights and interests of companies in commercial disputes and represented families whose lives have been devastated as a result of defective products or corporate negligence.  After growing up in Houston, Texas, Mr. Scofield graduated from Vanderbilt University, magna cum laude, in 1989 with a Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and psychology.  He graduated from Southern Methodist University School of Law in 1992.

In his initial years of practice, Mr. Scofield successfully defended companies against products liability, personal injury, and commercial claims.  In 1997, he began representing families who were rebuilding their lives after catastrophic injuries.  Mr. Scofield later expanded his practice to prosecute claims for his clients’ business interests.  Mr. Scofield has built a national law practice by working with co-counsel and assisting clients across the United States on a wide range of matters, such as the successful resolution of:

  • Representation of the interests of the United States against DaVita, a national dialysis provider, for claims that it over-billed the Medicare system for excessive and improper use of a pharmaceutical product.  The litigation led to one of the largest False Claims Act (qui tam) recoveries in which the Department of Justice declined to intervene ($55 million recovery plus confidential attorneys’ fees). The litigation was referenced in a May 2017 episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO).
  • Numerous products liability cases for catastrophic injuries or commercial losses.  The subjects of such litigation have included, for example, automotive products (such as tires, occupant protection systems, and fuel integrity systems), helicopter and airplane components, oil field equipment, commercial irrigation products, and a wide range of consumer products.
