"I worked with Scott on one mediation and one arbitration. Both had positive outcomes for us. Scott worked with us on both cases. I have found him to be very knowledgeable regarding construction, which is a tremendous help. He also has hired some other attorneys who work in his department and have engineering degrees, along with the law degree. I find his team hard to beat."

"I've found Scott to have a very good general knowledge of all aspects of construction law. There has not been a situation that I have given him where he couldn't provide expert advice. He not only provides this expert advice, but he is able to also provide guidance. He anticipates the effect of any given action and works with me to choose the proper direction to take, always taking into account the cost impact of that direction. In summary, Scott is excellent at listening, analyzing, and recommending options, while being mindful of the associated cost. What more could you ask from your lawyer? "

-Philip Neumann

"Scott truly provides strategies that assist our business plan. We are able to "think tank", if you will, through an issue and develop multiple action plans in order to create resolution. Scott has a refreshing personality with a get-the-job-done kind of action. "
