Scott T. Ugelstad

Associate Attorney​

Scott, a Tacoma native, graduated from Washington State University in 2014 and attended the University of Idaho School of Law, just ten miles away from his alma mater. While in law school, Scott honed his legal research and writing skills with the Idaho Law Review and received the CALI Award for the highest grade in his Advanced Topics in Criminal Procedure class. In his second year, Scott worked over 20 hours a week at the Latah County Prosecutor’s Office while maintaining a full class schedule. He qualified for the Dean’s List in Fall and Spring of 2015 and 2016. In Fall of 2017, Scott worked full time at his prosecutor position for school credit.
After earning his JD in May 2017, Scott worked for the Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office as a Deputy Prosecutor. There, he quickly learned how to handle a large caseload while simultaneously appearing in court nearly every day, handling cases from arraignment to verdict.

In March 2018, Scott joined Dynan and Associates, where he applied his unique prosecutor perspective to the world of civil litigation. Since that time, his passion for legal writing has resulted in a multitude of positive outcomes, including turning a Motion for Summary Judgment against his client into a six-figure settlement in a plaintiff premises liability case.

In his free time, Scott enjoys long distance biking, scuba diving, and rooting for the Cougs.

Areas of Practice: Insurance defense, insurance coverage litigation, premises liability, personal injury, fraud investigation, alternative dispute resolution, mediation, and arbitration.
