Attorney Profile

Attorney Scott Francis Riordan is the founder and owner of The Law Office of Scott F. Riordan in Amherst, New York. A top-rated trial advocate with more than 21 years of total legal experience, Mr. Riordan provides unmatched counsel and support to clients throughout Western New York and the counties of Erie, Niagara, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Genesee and beyond who have legal needs involving any of the following:

  • Criminal defense for DUI/DWI, sex crimes, drug crimes, weapons violations, federal crimes, and other felonies and misdemeanors
  • Plaintiff personal injury and motor vehicle accidents

Over the course of his legal career, Mr. Riordan has secured a long record of acquittals, dismissals and reductions of charges for the accused. During the same time, he has recovered millions of dollars in total compensation for his plaintiff clients suffering needlessly as a result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

No matter the issues his clients are facing, Mr. Riordan maintains an unwavering focus on protecting their rights and interests at all turns, and he has gained a reputation as a fierce and tenacious legal advocate who works tirelessly to help his clients achieve the favorable outcomes they expect and deserve as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

Honored for his impeccable professionalism, outstanding legal abilities and superior client service, Mr. Riordan has earned designation as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer from The National Trial Lawyers along with a listing in Business First's Who's Who in Law. He has also received excellent client ratings on Avvo as well as numerous testimonials and referrals from those he has served.

Mr. Riordan obtained his Juris Doctor from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Law in 1998, and the New York State Bar Association admitted him to practice the following year. Along with maintaining a successful private practice, he has served as a prosecutor with the Erie County District Attorney's Office, which provided him with invaluable insight into the criminal justice system that he uses to devise the most effective defense strategies possible for the accused.
