EXPERIENCED

KNOWLEDGEABLE

Scott’s extensive knowledge of the status of the courts and the possible outcomes at trial is utilized by him during the course of a mediation to assist parties and counsel in reaching the conclusion that a negotiated resolution is usually preferable to the “roll of the dice” in proceeding to trial.

KNOWLEDGEABLE

TRUSTED

Scott will always protect the relation between counsel and their clients, as well as confidential nature of the potential weakness of each sides position, so that — in the rare situation where the matter is not settled at mediation — neither side is adversely impacted by having attempted mediation.

TRUSTED

Scott gets cases settled, and usually the parties leave having realized that a negotiated settlement was the preferable approach — rather than continuing with the risks, uncertainties and expense inherent in ongoing litigation.

SUCCESSFUL

He empathizes with the parties and is very effective in helping them appreciate the value of compromising rather than continuing to litigate.

We had a really tough matter to mediate. Not only was Scott persistent at the mediation but he was extremely persistent in the follow through.

Scott really goes the extra mile to help parties reach an agreement.

As a mediator, Scott demonstrates an excellent understanding of both the law and the facts, and helps the parties understand where they are right and where they need to bend, so that everyone can accept the outcome.
