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.

Professional and Knowledgeable
Personally I had a wonderful experience with my attorney Scott Edwards. Not only meet my expectations but went above and beyond. Scott was very informative throughout the process and always kept me in the loop. My injury case was a really difficult and I was very pleased with the results and I would recommend him in a heartbeat. If you're looking for a fantastic attorney look no further.

Trustworthy and Reliable
Scott was awesome to work with. I felt like he always put our best interest first. He always explained things to me in clear term so we could understand exactly what was happening.
Posted by Mike | September 12, 2013
Smart, knowledgable, and productive
Scott was a great guy and super helpful with my case. He was understanding and actually honest with what he said he'd do (I know, a lawyer? Honest?) but yes he kept me up to date and fought for what was fair. I would recommend him for any case that I or a friend would come up against. If I ever need any legal advice or someone I trust to assist me it would be him. Thanks Scott for standing up for me bad helping me with my settlement. It was a headache until you came along.

Very knowledgeable
We have worked with Scott for almost 2 yrs on a case, he was always available for questions and kept us informed every step of the way. And he knows his stuff!! We have referred many of our friends to him. It has been a pleasure working with Scott and we are happy with our end results.. Thanks!

Knowledge in his field and compassion for others. Two strong traits that served me well.
I highly recommend your hiring Scott as your attorney. I had a difficult bodily injury case against a giant company with a lot of money and a lot of time to wait (cost) me out. I hired Scott with a settlement offer in hand that was not sufficient to my needs, or expectations. The settlement offer would not have covered the medical cost to date, let alone the anticipated. Through his knowledge in the field, unnerving conflict resolution, and patience, he let the giant know we meant business in reaching an acceptable settlement. He seemed to always have time for me, listened to my concerns, and provided good council. He has a top notch assistant that was on top of all aspects of my case and helpful if Scott was in court or in an appointment. The best aspect of hiriing Scott though, was that he won against that giant for me! When you retain Scott, you retain the best in integrity, and knowledge .

I ENTHUSIASTICALLY RECOMMEND THIS ATTORNEY
I would highly, highly recommend Scott Edwards to any friends or family member in need of a great attorney, and in fact - I have! You will feel confident that he's listening to you, that he really cares and that he's only interested in making sure you're taken care of. Scott took the time to ask questions and make sure he understood everything I was saying. I had worked with a different lawyer before and was shocked at how that lawyer, kept assuming he knew what I was going to say and cutting me off (and he kept being wrong). I was expecting that same response this time but was so pleasantly surprised to find him really listening and responding to what I had to say. With Scott Edwards it is extremely apparent that he is a family man, and that he holds high value, being a man of integrity. I really appreciate that, as the last thing you want is to feel like you're living the cliché of working with a slimy lawyer. With Scott Edwards, I felt safe and confident that he was there to truly HELP me. He took the time to listen to the whole situation, make sure he understood what had happened and then very clearly laid out all of my options and helped me understand any ramifications (including cost and time) that I may have to endure depending on the outcome I was after. I felt very sure that I understood my options because they were explained so clearly for me and very good with the course I chose. I have no doubts that anyone else who solicited Scott's services would feel the same way as I do, that they had made the right choice!
