Scott Rochelle

NAME: Scott Rochelle

PROUD NBRPA EMPLOYEE SINCE: 2013

HOMETOWN: Chicago, IL

PAST EXPERIENCE: I began my career at the law firm of Querrey & Harrow, Ltd. in Chicago where I represented government and corporate entities, and in particular, served as legal counsel to the NBRPA. I was fortunate to partner with Tom Kaufmann in the firm's sports practice area (Kaufmann Sports Management Group) where I served as a contract advisor, marketing agent, and legal counsel to current and former athletes on matters from negotiations to estate planning. I continue to advise on sports related topics and regularly lecture on sports law issues.

PROUDEST PROFESSIONAL MOMENT: Tie between my first trial victory (still undefeated) and signing my first client to a professional contract.

FAVORITE PRO BASKETBALL TEAM: Chicago Bulls.

FAVORITE BASKETBALL MEMORY: Learning that I was too short to play center when I arrived at Morehouse College, and subsequently being teased by guards who were taller than me. It was all downhill from there.

HOBBIES: Working out, sporting events (Fighting Illini preferred), golf, and spending time with friends and family.

FAMILY: My parents.
