Tom and Scott put me at ease the very first time I met them. This was the first time I have been involved in a law suit and consequently I had a lot of questions and concerns. They were both very patient and exceptionally knowledgeable. My calls and emails were always answered promptly and professionally. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. Tina, the paralegal, was outstanding also. I would highly recommend Forum Law Group. On a scale of 1-5, I would give Forum Law Group a 5.

Scott Kocher made our nightmare battle with a title company all work out. We knew nothing about protocols, procedures, best practices, or the psychology of presenting our side of a dispute, but Scott knew. He was the most thorough person we've ever worked with. Every detail was thought of and dealt with, including many that we didn't know existed. Our case required him to learn new background, which he seemed to do instantaneously, thinking of and mastering detailed questions. As it happened, the completeness of our "package" to the title company was what won the day.
He called us from vacation, late in the evening, and while obviously busy with demanding family ties. He was never too busy for us. His advice on how we should proceed was always sound. His instructions on what information we should gather was detailed and precise, yet clear.
His tone and demeanor were always upbeat, though he kept us grounded in the reality of possibly losing the case. But we won, and we're forever grateful for his help. We cannot say enough great things about Scott.

I have known Scott for years and have been constantly impressed with his robust knowledge of Oregon laws and civil procedure, which is balanced out by a down to earth and humble personality. He is an extremely sincere and kind individual who regularly goes out of his way to help others.
