  • Gregg Dasher

    I have known and had the privilege of working with Scott Cunningham many times over the past 25 years. He exemplifies professionalism, honesty, intellect, patience, respect, diligence and dedication. Scott always remains calm and reflective when dealing with difficult people or faced with complex and legal concepts and transactions. I have never seen him overreact or subordinate another’s experience, opinions or wisdom to plain knowledge. He invites discussion and teamwork. Scott does not alienate others or misallocate valuable time and resources when confronted with inevitable problems arising from or related to imperfect, missing, incomplete or incorrect facts and circumstances. Instead, he consistently remains constructively and academically focused on practical solutions and resolutions, whether through skillful negotiation, motion practice, mediation, arbitration or trial. Quite frankly, Scott has always been someone I strive to be more like.
