Scott Staples and Bill Thayer, two of the partners at Schauermann Thayer, were selected again to be co-moderators of the National Business Institute's local judicial forum, which occurred on December 8, 2017, at Town Place Suites at 17717 SE Mill Plain Blvd in Vancouver. Participating as panelists at the forum with Mr. Staples and Mr. Thayer were the Honorable Judge Scott Collier (Clark County Superior Court), the Honorable Gregory Gonzalez (Clark County Superior Court), the Honorable Derek Vanderwood (Clark County Superior Court), and the Honorable Stephen Warning (Cowlitz County Superior Court).
This full day seminar for local attorneys, which was entitled “As Judges See It: Top Mistakes Attorneys Make in Civil Litigation”, provided the attending lawyers an opportunity for a better understanding from the judge's point of view as to what works – and what doesn't work – in the courtrooms of Clark County and Cowlitz County.
Both Bill and Scott have previously served as moderators for NBI's judicial forums that it has hosted here in Clark County over the past decade or so.
