Meet Scott "Mac" MacPherson
Scott is an attorney at PLG, representing clients in finance, commercial real estate, and various other types of business transactions.
Scott began his legal career as In-House Counsel for a large real estate startup in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, following his graduation from Syracuse University College of Law. After honing his skills representing the company and its affiliates in housing, landlord/tenant, and related civil litigation matters, Scott was ready to take on new challenges and moved to New York City. There he represented buyers, sellers, and lenders in a wide variety of commercial and residential real estate transactions working with a multitude of communities and cultures. In addition, Scott helped his clients form companies and corporations for new ventures and business acquisitions. A small portion of his practice involved divorce and family law cases. Scott still maintains his license to practice in New York as the need arises.
As the pandemic hit New York City, Scott moved to Dallas and transitioned into asset management for national, hard money lenders where he obtained a vast knowledge of federally backed mortgage loans, their terms, post-closing loan issues and managed over $2B in his national portfolio. This work provided him with comprehensive knowledge of property valuation, performance, and condition; as well as lender expectations and procedures for underperforming loans.
In his spare time, Scott volunteers in immigration cases defending asylum seekers against removal from the United States; and enjoys hiking and traveling with his golden doodle, Ami.
Scott brings his broad knowledge and desire to guide and educate to the Patel Law Group PLLC. Scott makes his clients’ needs the priority as he negotiates favorable loan terms, and ensures clients have a thorough understanding of loan provisions and lender expectations.
