Personal Statement

Scott has a family history with deep ties to business and real estate in the Greater Spokane Area.  Scott calls on his years of experience in business, real estate and the practice of law to lead the Wolff, Hislop, & Crockett, PLLC Business, Transaction and Estate Planning team.  Scott desires long term client relationships.  A client receives the best legal advice from a lawyer that not only knows the law, advocates intelligently and assists the client in finding creative legal solution; but also has a clear understanding of the client, the client’s business and the client’s goals.  Those goals can and should include the client’s business strategy, transition, asset preservation, and legacy.  Scott’s goal is to effectuate this approach to the practice with each client; and instill this mindset with the Wolff, Hislop & Crocket Business, Transaction and Estate Planning Team.
