Scott Bucy’s professional career began in the beautiful Rocky Mountains as a successful business owner. His journey into the business world began in the 1990s when Scott and his brother opened a small restaurant in Vail, Colorado. With hard work, determination and perseverance, Scott eventually opened and operated seven businesses throughout the ski resorts of Colorado and on the front range in Boulder. After the birth of his first daughter, Scott decided to combine his business knowledge with a degree in law to assist other entrepreneurs. With his history of business success and love of the law, Scott has helped other business owners in Colorado, Kansas and Oregon. He enjoys helping others who are in similar positions to where he began decades ago.
After attending graduate school at the University of Colorado in Boulder, where he studied Ecology and Molecular Biology, Scott attended law school in Kansas on a full academic scholarship. Several years later, Scott permanently relocated to Ashland, Oregon, where he specializes in probate, estate planning, general business law and business planning, as well as family law.
Scott is an active member of the local Ashland community, serving as PTO President at Walker Elementary School, on the Board of Le Cirque Center, and as a member of the Rotary Club. Feel free to contact Scott for any legal assistance you might need.SEE LESS
