I represent clients in a wide range of real estate, general business, and fiduciary litigation. My litigation practice emphasizes a realistic initial assessment of the client's legal position and options, together with realistic attempts to settle. If intensive efforts to negotiate and settle disputes (thus minimizing legal costs) fail, I aggressively pursue all available cost-effective litigation strategies to achieve the best possible result for the client.

Highest acumen business transaction expertise
Scott has assisted me with a new business venture as well as multiple business transactions. Knowing that insurance was his specialty, I was at first hesitant to enlist his service, however these doubts were quickly proven incorrect when he produced a 38% higher revenue result than my previous lawyer during my most recent business transaction. I cannot recommend Scott highly enough after these experiences and will be using him for my ongoing legal service needs.

Convinced Insurance Carrier to Pay Claim
Our experience with MPBA has been exceptional. In addition to their high level of competency, the attorneys were very obviously invested in the effort that was necessary to achieve the desired outcome. They worked with us as our partners. Scott Easter at MPBA succeeded in securing insurance coverage and a defense funded by our insurance company under circumstances where that result was unlikely, at best. His expertise in the insurance coverage area and diligence in pursuing our interests was remarkable.

Managing Partner
I have worked with Scott Easter for more than 12 years. He has handled complicated Insurance litigation and provided invaluable general and specific counsel for my many business ventures and personal concerns. Scott has performed flawlessly for me over our entire business relationship. His integrity and wisdom has lead ultimately to a long term friendship with my family and I trust Scott for his counsel on all aspects of my life.

Not trustworthy. All he cares is money.
I would not recommend Scott Easter as a lawyer to anybody. The guy talks to you on the phone for 2 minutes and he will charge for 30 minutes. When I looked at the bill he sent, everything was doubled, tripled. If he sends you two sentence email, he charges an hour for that. He is extremely money oriented, that is all his focus is. Stay away from him.

Response from Scott Easter March 9, 2018
It is hard to comment on this review since it is anonymous. Probably I requested a retainer from a new client before providing advice-if that is the case, and the remaining comments are inferences made be him/her, and comment reflects why I use a retainer as a screening device. Certainly I do not bill for any time not in fact spent.

Insurance Attorney | Oct 23
Relationship: Co-worker
"Scott is great with really complicated insurance coverage issues. His depth of knowledge combined with experience make him a fantastic advocate in a coverage dispute."
Litigation Attorney | Apr 24
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I just finished up a case against Scott. He is an able attorney who expertly represented his client, but did so with impeccable professionalism. His approach to the case facilitated an efficient result for his client that may not have been possible had he adopted a professionally hostile approach - the kind that needlessly drives up attorney fees without moving the ball forward for the client. I hold him in high esteem, and while I enjoyed him as an adversary, hope that his future litigation is against parties other than my clients."
