Scott received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Utah in 1989 and a Juris Doctor degree from Willamette University in 1993. He was admitted to the Oregon Bar in 1993 and the Idaho Bar in 1997.
Scott believes that an injury attorney who never or rarely fights for his client in court, even if the case has challenges, is not being a proper advocate. Scott takes on challenging cases but has still been prevailing at a rate of approximately 80% over his last twenty jury trials. Scott had a jury verdict appealed to the Supreme Court not too long ago where the Court reduced the jury award by $21,000 but Scott still recovered $193,000 from the insurer on that case. Scott believes that most cases can and should settle but because some lawyers never go to court, some insurers never offer a fair outcome unless they are forced to through the court process.
Scott left his comfort zone of injury law and did a jury trial in a contract claim for a friend who had been treated unfairly. Despite some tough facts and some adverse law Scott obtained a unanimous jury verdict in favor of his friend.
Scott did not plan on not being an injury lawyer but while in law school, his wife and children were injured in an auto accident. After getting the runaround by a major insurance company (his own company) he quickly learned that good honest people need help in dealing with insurance companies. After one year of serving as a Judicial Law Clerk in Salem Oregon his career has and will remain committed to holding insurance companies to the promises they have made.
Scott and his wife Chris have two children, both recently finished college, so he is officially old. He also enjoys almost any athletic event and still participates even though his body has been telling him it is time to quit.
