  • Simon Stocker

    When I started my career as prosecutor, I had many cases with Scott as the defense attorney. Over the years, I have seen Scott in the courtroom as both defense attorney and judge. I am so impressed with his abilities and knowledge. He sets a fantastic example for the rest of us.
