Scott Cain awarded 2018 United States Civil Litigation and Trial Law Lawyer of the Year
Most people know Scott Cain as Cleburne’s mayor, but his law firm clients know him as a strong litigation and trial lawyer. Cain was recently recognized as the 2018 United States Civil Litigation and Trial Law Lawyer of the Year by Lawyer Monthly. Lawyer Monthly, an international professional publication with a large circulation, requested nominations for various awards and among the 20,000 nominations received in 2018 were several for Cain. Lawyer Monthly utilized several criteria for vetting its nominations, including number of third party nominations, legal expertise and innovation, peer recognition and personal achievement. Cain was recently notified that he was the publication’s 2018 United States Civil Litigation and Trial Law Lawyer of the Year.
“I was surprised when I received the notification,” Cain said. “At first I thought, this has to be a mistake.” After confirming the award was for real, Cain quickly brought up his law office staff of assistants and lawyers. “I am honored by the recognition,” said Cain, “but it’s a team effort that includes our great staff and wonderful clients.” Cain’s staff wasn’t surprised. “Scott pours his heart into his cases,” said fellow attorney Zach Brown, “he communicates options to his clients and works hard to get results.”
In addition to civil litigation and trial matters, Cain’s Cleburne office handles real estate, business transactions, and estate planning and probate matters. “It has been an honor and challenge to help many businesses navigate both straightforward and complex legal issues,” said Cain. The law firm recently expanded its services to real estate closings when it opened a title company, Trinity Abstract & Title. “We wanted to add closing and title services to our real estate practice to assist our clients,” Cain added. “We wanted to be there for folks whether they are dealing with real estate issues, business matters or estate planning and probate matters.”
In addition to Cain’s 2018 Trial Lawyer recognition, his firm was also recognized as a recipient of the Texas Top10 Award for Estate Planning. “Helping our clients navigate the tough issues of winding up a loved one’s affairs is rewarding,” said Brent Kiel, another attorney with Cain & Kiel Law. The law firm was also recognized as Johnson County’s number one law firm for the eighth out of the past ten years by the Cleburne Times Review Reader’s Poll. “It’s about service,” said Cain. “We want to help solve problems and help put people in a better position than when they first come to see us.” And in 2018, several organizations joined Cain’s clients in recognizing that service.
