About me

I started my career as an insurance defense attorney where I learned, first hand, how insurance companies investigate, evaluate, and adjust insurance claims.  This experience provides invaluable insight as I fight to get my clients the compensation they deserve for their injuries. 


 


I am a member of both the Washington State Bar and the Oregon State Bar, and have been admitted to the Federal District Courts of both states as well as to the Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.  This allows me to represent clients in all courts throughout Washington and Oregon.


 


In my free time, I am a father of four amazing children and a husband to my incredible wife. I enjoy all things outdoors--especially hiking and camping with my family and personal time on my road bike.

  • Quinn Harrison Posner

    I endorse Scott Edwards' work. Fortunately, I have worked with Scott on several matters in the past. He is thorough, insightful, and on top of his game. Even better is the fact that not only is Scott an excellent lawyer, but he is down to earth and a great person as well. If you are looking for a smart, aggressive lawyer that actually treats you as a person, look no further. You've found him in Scott.
