Managing Partner

Scott founded Carolina Divorce Mediators in 2001 when he saw a need to help couples navigate the journey of separation and divorce. Given that it is conflict, and not necessarily divorce, that adversely affects children, he developed a thorough step-by-step settlement process that crafts comprehensive, long-lasting parenting solutions and satisfying, equitable property division/support agreements. It is these very agreements accomplished through this process that causes parents to feel a strong sense of accomplishment knowing that they have been fair and equitable to each other and have minimized the harmful impact of conflict on their children.

With a financial and business degree from the University of Georgia, Scott is certified by the Dispute Resolution Commission for Superior Court. In the interest of community service, he has served as a volunteer Guardian ad Litem for the State of North Carolina, a position which provides a voice in court for abused and neglected children, who in many cases are too young or too afraid to speak. He has also volunteered at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Dispute Settlement Program helping various people resolve their differences. He is past-President of the North Carolina Association of Professional Family Mediators and is also a member of the Dispute Resolution section of the North Carolina Bar Association.
