Columbia-based attorney W. Scott Sonntag is a plaintiffs' medical malpractice trial lawyer that serves communities within the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., metro areas and nationwide. In over 30 years of practice, including 17 years practicing medical malpractice defense, he has handled more than 200 jury trials, resolved thousands of settlements and has been distinguished as a pre-eminent trial attorney through annual listings in several publications. Additionally, he was named Trial Lawyer of the Year for 2006 by the Trial Lawyers Association of Metropolitan Washington, D.C.

While his legal career has focused on serving the needs of plaintiffs as a medical malpractice trial attorney, Scott continues to serve as an objective, professional mediator. His role as mediator allows him to objectively view and evaluate both sides of a dispute. He capably helps both sides of a dispute recognize and appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of their positions, which enables them to come closer together in terms of reaching a fair settlement. 
Just named TOP MEDIATION FIRM IN MARYLAND by the state's premier legal and business newspaper: THE DAILY RECORD.
