Since 1992, he has been a member of several national organizations committed to changing the way Americans plan through excellent client
service and professionalism and was a founding member of WealthCounsel® in 2000.
Being a compassionate writer, he enjoys creating
detailed, family value oriented trust provisions and helping his clients pass their personal and business assets to their survivors
with a warm and caring heart.

Since 2005 Scott has divided his time between Salem and Eugene-Springfield where he is a collaborating attorney with his long time colleague
Eden Rose Brown where he helped develop her business planning practice and often assists Eden with creating detailed, family values trust
In 2008 he had the opportunity to move his practice to a renovated home in the Historic Washburn District of downtown Springfield that
features on site parking, a ramped entry and a warm, welcoming environment.
As an accomplished public speaker, he has presented numerous seminars and classes to the public, to private groups and to other estate
planning professionals, including a State of Oregon Insurance Commission accredited estate planning class. He regularly attends continuing
legal education courses in order to keep up to date and informed on what is new, different and creative in the estate planning field.
“I’ve discovered I enjoy teaching and am committed to developing client philanthropy at a very personal level. I also believe
everyone can, and will “Leave a Legacy” if someone just takes the time to show them how. “
Scott is also quite the handyman, and enjoys keeping up the historic office building. His wife Nancy enjoys keeping her cats, goats
and chickens on their small acreage up the McKenzie, and now, her “deer-free” flower cutting and vegetable garden in sunny
downtown Springfield. Their son Justin teaches math in Junction City and is an active member of that community as a 3-sport coach who
motivates young people to be respectful, diligent and inquisitive.
When not engaged in house renovations, gardening or “farm” projects you will find the Coreys sailing, skiing, whitewater
rafting and walking or biking the scenic bike trails between Springfield and Eugene.
