Scott Hislop

Of Counsel

Scott has a family history with deep ties to business and real estate in the Greater Spokane area.

Scott has always cherished building long term client relationships. A client receives the best legal advice from a lawyer that not only knows the law, advocates intelligently, and assists the client in finding a creative legal solution; but also has a clear understanding of the client, the client’s business, and the client’s goals.

Scott grew up in the Liberty Lake area and graduated from Gonzaga University. After spending a year abroad, Scott returned to Spokane Valley, selling real estate, and attending and graduating from Gonzaga school of Law. Scott left the area to serve as an attorney in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Core (JAG). In the Army Scott served soldiers deploying within the European theater, provided base commander support, and tried cases as both a prosecutor and defense counsel.

In 2002, Scott returned to Spokane, joined his partner and father Jamie Wolff, establishing the firm Wolff and Hislop. In 2015, Scott became a founding partner in Wolff, Hislop, & Crockett, PLLC, a Business, Real Estate, and Estate Planning, transactional and litigation firm.

In 2023, Scott transitioned from a Partner in the firm to Of Counsel. Through his new role, Scott is able to serve as General Counsel for his long-term client StanCraft, while still working and consulting with the attorneys at WHC to make sure any other long-term clients have their legal needs met.

Outside of the office, Scott enjoys spending time with his family in the mountains or on the lake.
