I highly endorse Scott Anderson. I have known Scott for many years. When I was a prosecutor, I faced Scott in the courtroom and across the negotiation table. He is a highly skilled negotiator and razor sharp trial attorney. Scott is also very well-respected by his colleagues and the entire legal community.
