Secrest Wardle Partner Honored for Work with Veterans


Margaret A. Scott

Margaret A. Scott, an executive partner in the Secrest Wardle’s Troy office, was presented with a “Challenge Coin” honoring her commitment to the North Oakland County Veteran’s Treatment Court. 

Scott, of Commerce, was honored at a recent ceremony for her service to the program in her role as a prosecuting attorney in the 51st District Court in Waterford. Nine veterans graduated from the program during the ceremony, with a combined total of 60 years of service.  Each service member received a Challenge Coin in recognition of their successful completion of the treatment program.

Veterans' treatment court promotes sobriety, recovery, and stability through a coordinated response that involves collaboration with  partners found in drug courts and mental health courts, as well as the Department of Veterans Affairs, health care networks, Veterans Benefits Administration, the state Departments of Veterans Affairs, volunteer mentors, and organizations that support veterans and veterans' families.

Scott is a member of Secrest Wardle’s motor vehicle litigation, municipal, and property, fire and casualty practice groups. She also is the past-chair of the Michigan Anti-Car Theft Campaign Committee and is the chair of the Michigan Arson Prevention Committee’s Governmental Resource Committee. 

Scott obtained her Bachelor of Arts from Michigan State University in criminal justice and psychology.  She received her juris doctor from Wayne State University Law School, and was admitted to the State Bar of Michigan.
