Outstanding attorney: brilliant, thorough, incisive, humorous and a great presenter and communicator
Scott is by far the best attorney that I have ever engaged. In my job, I have worked with dozens of attorneys over a very wide range of legal actions and disputes. Each attorney has strengths and weaknesses but Scott's performance in my case was head and shoulders above any other attorney that I've encountered. As defense counsel, Scott brought a great deal of energy and intellect to my case. He kept the main points in clear focus while he prepared an extremely thorough brief and courtroom presentation with a surprising level of attention to detail. We had less than two weeks to prepare for trial from engagement to the actual arbitration but Scott was able to anticipate the opposing counsel's every move after devoting excessively long hours to research and preparation. The stakes were very high (millions of dollars) and Scott was able to obtain a good result. Not everything we wanted because that seldom happens in arbitration--but the plaintiffs knew they were in trouble from the opening statement. They were actually forced on the defensive and had to change their entire approach to the case after the first day of the trial. Scott's clients initially engage him because of his excellent reputation, successful track record and the tremendous amount of talent, dedication and creativity that he brings to each case. They become lifelong clients because of his concern, his passion, his dry humor and the reassurance that they experience even during the grim circumstances that surround legal disputes. I strongly recommend him.
