SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE MEDIATION

Attorney-involved mediation/settlement conference is a mode of processing cases that has gained popularity because it is practical, consumes less time than a trial, and allows for greater flexibility in terms than Courts may order. Scott is an “evaluative mediator,” by and large, and is known not to waste time. He encourages all parties to participate by providing their analyses and proposals.


LIMITED REPRESENTATION

Scott continues to offer traditional representation of clients in a limited number of family law cases.  He encourages clients to work with other mediators and strives to facilitate negotiated settlements. 



PARTY ONLY MEDIATION

Scott excels at working as a more traditional party only mediator. Some clients have attorneys, and elect to meet with Scott to settle, while consulting with the attorneys. Others choose not to have attorneys. Scott works with all parties to design the mediation and is flexible as to the format. All that is needed to begin is an agreement to meet together.


ARBITRATION + JUDICIAL APPOINTMENTS

Because he has practiced Family Law exclusively for the past 30 years, Scott is often retained to work as an arbitrator or judge for individual cases. He is certified in several counties in Oregon as a reference judge.
