  • Melody A Alger

    I heartily endorse this lawyer's work. I have relied upon Scott's acumen and expertise in the area of business law on numerous occasions. He never disappoints and, on the few occasions he has been unable to provide an immediate answer, he has gone out of his way to find the requested information from another source. Scott has proven to be an invaluable resource, colleague and friend.
