Scott is a Kelowna lawyer driven by a passion for finding creative ways to use the law to help people. He focuses his practice at Connect on assisting his clients plan for the future. For those beginning or ending a relationship, this includes preparing cohabitation, marriage and separation agreements, and providing advice on these documents when they have been prepared by other lawyers. To ensure that Connect’s clients have a complete plan in place, Scott also prepares wills, powers of attorney, representation agreements, and other documents used in estate and elder planning.
Scott is a member of the board of the United Way of the Central and South Okanagan Similkameen and finds this work a rewarding way of giving back to a community that has welcomed him with open arms since he moved to Kelowna. He also stays engaged with his legal peers as the Chair of the Canadian Bar Association’s Family Law section in the Okanagan. This helps him get to know and stay in touch with other local family lawyers.
At home, Scott enjoys playing with his impractical British cars, cooking a limited variety of cuisines poorly, and sipping Scotch so peaty that it tastes like dirt to everyone else. Before his legal career, Scott obtained two degrees in history, and he keeps up this interest in areas as diverse as the Napoleonic-era Royal Navy and the environmental history of the Pacific coast of North America.
