Scott O’Sullivan is founder of The O’Sullivan Law Firm and he has been supporting the biker community for over 20 years, including helping injured riders, non-profit board leadership, motorcycle event sponsorships and free legal advice to BikerDown. Additionally, over the past few years, Scott has been working with Colorado legislators to pass laws against distracted driving.
Then, in late 2017, Scott received a phone call that he says “was the final gut-punch” and the reason he founded Rider Justice.
“I got a call from a dad who was in a funeral home saying goodbye to his son. It staggered me. When we finally met, I learned that his son’s case was a classic bias-against-motorcycles case. The accident wasn’t his fault, but everything was being skewed against him. It’s enraging. If I don’t do something about it, who will?”
Scott decided to launch Rider Justice, an organization that champions bikers’ rights – on the road, in the courtroom and in our culture. The organization works to break the cycle of discrimination and distraction that leads non-bikers to dismiss, overlook and (consciously or unconsciously) harm people who just want to ride without a cage.
