Scott A. Stoneking
Scott joined McCollum Crowley in 2009 after completing his law school studies at Hamline University. He is a ’96 graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College where he majored in Criminal Justice and Political Science. After Gustavus, Scott attended Michigan State University and obtained a Master’s Degree in Social Sciences – Criminal Justice. After spending some time working in the criminal justice field, Scott—like most insurance professionals—somehow found his calling in the insurance field.
In the late ‘90s, Scott began working as a Workers’ Compensation Claims Examiner for Wausau Insurance Companies. Since then, he has also worked for Westfield Insurance Group and Risk Administration Services. Scott feels his ten years of experience as a workers’ compensation adjuster allows him to connect with his clients on a level other attorneys cannot; he can certainly relate to the stresses and pressures of workers’ compensation claims adjusting and the many obstacles—both internally and externally—that need to be overcome. As an attorney, he enjoys problem solving with his clients and finding cost-effective solutions that best meet his clients’ needs.
When Scott isn’t analyzing workers’ compensation files, he can be found at the ice rink or soccer field coaching any of his three sons: Austin, Owen, and Evan. As an active board member of the Lakeville Hockey Association, Scott coaches multiple levels of hockey. He also enjoys watching his kids compete in hockey, football, lacrosse, and soccer year-round with his wife, Stacy. When they’re not with the kids, they like listening to live music, watching movies, attending theater performances, going to sporting events, and working on home projects. Well…he doesn’t actually like the home projects, but he finds himself constantly doing home improvement anyway. Anyone know a good handyman?
