Attorney Profile

Scott J. Lantry is a Certified Specialist in the field of Family Law and is a Partner with the law firm Whiting, Ross, Abel & Campbell, LLP. Mr. Lantry exclusively practices family law and is committed to empowering his clients to resolve disputed issues on terms most favorable to the client and his/her children, either by mutual agreement or by focused and efficient family court litigation.

Continuously since 2017, Mr. Lantry has been selected for inclusion in the Northern California Super Lawyers® Rising Stars List, which is comprised of attorneys who are age 40 or younger, in practice for 10 years or less, and have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Less than 2.5% of attorneys in Northern California are named to Rising Stars.

In Superior Court proceedings that led to the published appellate decision In re Marriage of MacIlwaine (2018) 26 Cal.App.5th 514, Mr. Lantry successfully persuaded the trial court to find that a guideline child support award would exceed the needs of the children. Representing a “C-Suite” executive of a publicly traded technology company, the Superior Court granted also Mr. Lantry’s request to calculate child support as of the date his client elected to exercise employer provided stock options, as opposed to when the stock options vested. Mr. Lantry has since gone on to represent and advise both support payors and support recipients in cases where the payor’s income arguably exceeds the children’s needs under section 4057(b)(3), and where the support obligation is based on income from all forms of equity compensation.

Mr. Lantry joined Whiting, Ross, Abel & Campbell, LLP in 2004, working as a File Room Clerk. When he passed the California Bar in 2008, he became a member of the team of family law attorneys at the firm. Mr. Lantry took a two-year hiatus from the firm during which time he represented airlines and aerospace companies in civil litigation in California State and Federal Courts. Since his return to the firm, he represents clients through all phases of family law litigation including filing of initial court documents, complying with all discovery and disclosure requirements, settlement proceedings, and trial counsel.
