N. Scott Carpenter was born in Nyack, New York in 1964. Upon leaving New York he was raised on a farm in Northwest Ohio for a short time before moving to North Texas with his family in 1971.
In 1991, at the age of 27, Mr. Carpenter put himself through law school by working part-time as a clerk in a mid-sized Dallas law firm. Attending law school in the summers allowed him to complete his law studies in less than three years.
Mr. Carpenter is the only member of his extended family to graduate law school and to practice law on a full-time basis. Mr. Carpenter began his law career in 1994, and after only a few short months after passing the Bar exam he opened his own law firm and began representing individuals in personal injury cases.
In a few short years he grew his firm from a small fledgling practice to one with seven lawyers and an equal number of support staff. Today, he is well-known nationally for his work in bringing much needed design and manufacturing changes to numerous consumer products, all of which have caused property damage, personal injury, and death.
