Tenacious. Scott is tenacious as a mediator. Like his dog finding a bone on a walk through the woods, he won’t let go once a mediation begins. All options will be explored and even after the end of the day, if the case has not been settled, he will stay in touch to assist in bringing the matter to a conclusion.
Experienced. Scott has courtroom and appellate background so that he understands what the parties are going through. He has tried over 70 cases throughout the State of Texas from El Paso to Texarkana and Beaumont. He has had cases go through trial, through the courts of appeals, and to the Texas Supreme Court and United States Supreme Court.
Understanding. Scott has handled trial matters for both insured and uninsured defendants, and for injured people. He has tried business matters, employment disputes and contract matters. He has represented people in family disputes and divorces. Scott understands the needs and losses of parties involved in litigation.
Listening. Scott knows that a big part of the means to resolve a dispute is to be able to hear the parties, to hear their needs, and to assist in directing the parties to take control of the resolution to their dispute.
Encouraging. Scott encourages the parties to take advantage of alternative dispute resolution, so that they can control the outcome. Mediation provides each party with the ability to control the resolution. A judge and jury take this out of the party’s hands. With a mediation, the party decides what the party can accept as the resolution to put the matter behind them, and move forward to the future. This control makes mediation and dispute resolution a much better experience for the party than a trial.
