Scott is a shareholder attorney and the founding attorney Halloin Law Group, S.C., licensed in both Wisconsin and Illinois. For more than two decades, Scott has focused his practice on complex construction, construction-related insolvency, and insurance litigation.

Scott is an experienced construction and real estate litigator in Wisconsin. He has logged thousands of hours handling construction, insurance, and real estate related hearings, trials and arbitrations, and has handled hundreds of motions and witness examinations in the field.

Scott was one of the first and is one of a select handful of lawyers in the Midwest to practice in a narrow subset of commercial and residential construction, insurance, and real estate litigation concerning toxigenic mold issues. He has handled mold-related cases extensively since the first significant cases were filed in the late 1990s. Since then, he has dramatically helped shaped the law governing such cases. Scott has become a regular speaker on toxigenic mold issues and related topics of insurance, construction contract, design, and code compliance at legal and construction industry seminars.

Scott also has handled a substantial number of construction-related insolvency issues, including foreclosure, bankruptcy, and receivership claims. In particular, he has developed significant experience with priority issues, frequently speaking on and suggesting changes to the governing law.

Irrespective of his extensive trial experience, Scott’s passion long has been legal writing. He strongly believes that a good lawyer should be able to effectively communicate complicated factual and legal matters in an easy-to-understand (and when possible, enjoyable) manner. If you ask Scott about what he is most proud in his professional career, he will respond that it is the large numbers of judges and lawyers who highly have commended Halloin Law Group, S.C.’s brief-writing abilities.
