    I met Scott when we were opposing counsel on a very hotly contested piece of litigation between parties who strongly despised each other. Despite this background, I found Scott to be a complete professional, highly competent and ethical adversary, to whom I have referred and will continue to refer clients when conflicts arise preventing me from representing them myself.

    I endorse this lawyer. Scott is a great lawyer. I have had the oportunity to work closely with Scott on complex litigation matters. He achieves results that most lawyers cannot. He achieves these results through his knowledge, dedication and the respect he has earned from opposing counsel.. He truly is concerned with achieving gghte best result for his clients.
