  • Scott Thomas Fortune

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Scott Cairns is an excellent labor and employment attorney representing management. We litigated against each other extensively several years ago. He zealously represented his client but was always courteous and professional to opposing counsel. He has a reputation as an excellent attorney in our community.
