Partner Biography

J. Scott Flowers got his first job with a law firm at 20 years old, and he’s never looked back. He is a partner with Hutchens Law Firm practicing in the areas of litigation and business.

Scott was born in Fayetteville and raised in rural Duplin County. He sees his upbringing here in North Carolina as a valuable asset for his clients. He is just as comfortable talking to a truck driver, as he is a heart surgeon. 

Scott’s philosophy for working with clients always starts with listening.

“If a client is talking to an attorney, it’s probably a stressful time for them. They need to know that you are listening and that you are on their side.” – J. Scott Flowers
