A former Division I athlete and coach, Scott’s practice of law and his approach to life are shaped by that experience and by fundamental principles instilled at an early age: commitment, tenacity, teamwork, accountability, respect, and loyalty. His clients are his teammates—together collaborating on issues to work toward the desired outcome and achieve the best resolution. Clients also appreciate Scott’s ability to solve complex or unusual problems, adeptly uncovering an obscure fact, managing difficult witnesses, working with unpredictable opposing counsel, or establishing rapport with an obstinate judge.
While he works with clients to prevent or quickly resolve litigation, Scott gladly accepts the responsibility of trying a case. He is a board-certified trial attorney who feels perfectly at home in any courtroom. Scott is also a Qualified Neutral under Rule 114 of the Minnesota General Rules of Practice. His nearly three decades of trial and litigation experience make him a particularly effective mediator, assisting litigants and their counsel in resolving disputes via voluntary or court-ordered Alternative Dispute Resolution.
When not working or volunteering with various community and professional organizations, Scott cherishes time spent with his wife of 29 years, his grown children, and his over-active golden retriever. Still an avid athlete, Scott plays amateur baseball and organized hockey, albeit with a passion that exceeds his fading abilities.
