"To give is to accept--the choice is in your hands."-SSB
Scott has negotiated thousands of matters without ever seeing a Courtroom from a simple visitation issue, temporary orders, or final resolution.

""My way" is often not the "right way" when moving forward in life."-SSB
Scott is a strong believer people should find a way to resolve their disputes without having to go through the emotional, expensive, and uncertain Court process. To place your family before an individual in a robe (i.e. Judge) leads to uncertain results. Family law attorneys should strive for this ideal.
"He always had my best interest at heart and when I was at the end of my rope and wanted to simply give up and throw in the towel he talked me down off the ledge and helped me stay strong until the very end. He is a very smart, strategic and effective lawyer. He performs with great integrity and professionalism but also has a great sense of humor and is easy to relate to." --Divorce Client
"The journey has come to its end, with light in its sight; it is time to move forward."-SSB
