Don has practiced law at Scott Venturo Rudakoff LLP in Calgary for over twenty five years, primarily in the area of insurance defence and commercial litigation. He has been a partner at the firm since 2005. His legal practice focuses primarily on professional liability, construction deficiency and catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death matters; including cases involving social and commercial hosts. Don has extensive experience in constructionrelated matters including cases involving complex geo-technical and structural engineering issues.

In more recent years, Don has focused a large percentage of his practice on ADR, having been involved in countless Judicial Dispute Resolution hearings, private mediations and settlement meetings over the course of his legal career. Don received formal mediation training through the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution; an intensive program offered through the Pepperdine School of Law in California. Don has been fortunate to work with (and receive training from) some of the most widely recognized and sought-after professionals in the field of dispute resolution. With his training and breadth of experience, Don has developed a clear understanding of the dispute resolution process. 

Don is known for his strong “people skills” and for having a focused and practical approach to assisting parties with the resolution of their disputes - regardless of the issues or monetary amounts involved. Don is frequently called upon to mediate cases involving complex issues of liability and damages; primarily in the field of personal injury, but also in the commercial context. Don takes great pride in his record of working collaboratively with people to successfully resolve their disputes.
