Veteran Lawyer Opens New Law Firm in Boca Raton

While a typical visit to your lawyer’s office does not exactly inspire happy thoughts, my recent visit to Scott J. Topolski’s office was driven by a more celebratory cause than a lawsuit; having spent the last 27 years as a practicing Boca partner, the seasoned litigator set out to spread his wings in an office by himself. He is now six weeks into heading his own practice, and we were interested in getting to know more about our newest neighbor in the Boca business community.

Mr. Topolski, who politely welcomes me into his new office space, has a friendly demeanor which I soon find out is a product of his talkative nature. In fact, Topolski not only obtained his Bachelor’s in Journalism and Communication, but his Law Degree was pursued with the prospective intent of pursuing a career in politics, if not law. Needless to say, he decided to continue into law and now, his voice has found itself a comfortable home in the demanding courts he frequents as a trial lawyer.

Having originally obtained his degree from New Jersey, Topolski’s happy memories from visits to family in the Sunshine State eventually gave him enough impetus to obtain a Florida license in 1994 and move here in 1997.  “My wife and I hate the cold weather,” he admits. “We were visiting twice a year, we thought it would be a better environment to raise children in, property values were less, you put the whole package together and it just kind of led us down here.”

Since then, it seems Topolski has been pretty adamant about practicing in Boca Raton. From Szymoniak & Ridge, P.A. to Buckingham, Doolittle & Burroughs, L.L.P., Topolski has made his way around firms in the city, collecting top-notch reviews from his colleagues along the way. (His hard work has resulted in top ratings on Avvo and Martindale- Hubbell.)  So it seems Boca was the natural choice when it came to picking the perfect location for his new practice. “I live in Boca,” he affirms, “my kids go to school in Boca, this is where my life is, and when I decided to open my own office, I wanted to stay in Boca.”

The idea had existed for some time, but the Topolski Law Firm, P.A. finally opened its doors on September 15. Volume-driven, focused on quick results and attention to detail, are the words he used to characterize his law firm when I prompted him. As for the lawyer, he prides himself on being “extraordinarily responsive.” “If you contact me, whether by phone or by email, I will get back to you that day. Even if I’m on the road, even if I’m in court, even if I’m in a conference, I will get back to you that day.”
