Scott Aramaki graduated from the University of California, Riverside in 1994 with a degree in Political Science. He earned his Juris Doctor in 1997 from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. During law school, he focused on civil litigation, working for two firms specializing in that field. He gained valuable experience in case strategy and procedure.
After passing the Bar, Scott began his career in civil litigation for an insurance defense firm. Scott used this opportunity to sharpen his negotiating and litigation skills in complex arbitrations and trials. It was here that Scott gained experience in matters of carrier guidelines, reporting and litigation policies, and the evaluation of exposure and settlement in the context of insurance claims.
In 2003, Scott reached out into the field of Workers’ Compensation. His work ethic and dedication have earned the consistent support of clients. Scott worked for Laughlin, Falbo, Levy & Moresi for six years, acquiring valuable experience in the evolving arena of Workers Compensation following the passage of SB 899. Scott put his civil background to good use, as the more procedural aspects of civil litigation resulted in a thorough and prepared approach to Workers Compensation.
Scott believed there were new opportunities in the Workers Compensation field. He began looking for a firm which would foster a fresh, aggressive style of practice. Nakamoto Chou was looking to expand its presence into Northern California, and they approached Scott with the perfect opportunity: Managing Attorney for a new office located in the Bay Area. It was an ideal fit. The San Jose office of Nakamoto Chou was opened in 2009. Scott has promoted an environment of teamwork with clients, and has continued to put forth the dedicated, hands-on attention to detail that meets the needs of our clients in the ever changing field of Workers Compensation.
