Practice Areas
As a partner and shareholder at Koff, Mangan, Vullo & Gartley, P.C., Scott C. Gartley’s practice encompasses labor and employment law and litigation. For more than three decades Scott has advised public and private employers in both union and non-union settings on day-to-day human resource and labor relations issues with a focus on avoiding problems and resolving disputes before they turn into costly litigation. From Fortune 500 companies to small employers, his experience includes negotiating hundreds of collective bargaining agreements on behalf of public and private employers engaged in virtually every type of industry and service. It has also included representation in countless arbitration hearings and unfair labor practice proceedings and the resolution of an even greater number of grievances and unfair labor practice charges addressing every aspect of wages, hours and working conditions. He has practiced before the Pennsylvania Courts of Common Pleas, Pennsylvania Superior Court, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court, Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Federal District Courts, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court of the United States, the National Labor Relations Board, the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, and various arbitration panels.

In addition to his extensive labor experience, Scott served as a part-time Assistant District Attorney in the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office from 1991 to 2010 where he focused on homicide prosecutions and appeals.
