Scott considers his clients colleagues—collaborating on issues to achieve the best resolution. His easygoing, friendly demeanor and fierce dedication makes clients loyal, in turn. They appreciate his ability to solve unusual or difficult problems, as he’s adept at 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 25 years 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 28 years, his grown children, and his over-active golden retriever. He also loves playing virtually any sport—men’s senior league baseball, Sunday night hockey, tennis, or golf.
