Posted by Dave
Scott was retained as my attorney for divorce proceedings about five years ago. From the beginning, he displayed his complete knowledge of the law and individual rights. With compassion, he worked with me to steer clear of unnecessary conflicts and expenses.
During the entire process, I felt like I was with a trusted friend while receiving excellent advice. He even made himself available for many important discussions well after business hours and on weekends.
Since the divorce, Scott has worked diligently to advise me on any issues that have arisen. He helped me to resolve any and all additional concerns in a very timely and professional manner.
I am confident in recommending Scott to friends, family and associates for his outstanding legal skills and advice.

Scott has my attorney on a very diificult and emotional case for the past four years. At every turn, Scott has been there for me, able to explain difficult legal issues with patience and insight on how it would impact my case. He and his partnter, Jeff Hodge, ably represented me throughout the process, succesfully arguing many of the important issues to me of the case such as custody of our children.
Scott is very ethical in his approach, does not resort to overblown hyperbole, but presents strong, logical arguements that are well recieved by the courts.
Scott and his firm are more than fair in their approach to billings and fees, I felt that I was a part of the process throughout the case and they always informed me of the impact to my case.
I have referred two of my friends to Scott, who have needed the services of attorney, and write this open recommendation for anyone who wants a smart, ethical lawyer, they would do well having Scott as their counsel.

I retained Scott Laterra in my divorce proceedings in 2014. I couldn't have chosen a better attorney. Scott is great. He is very professional and a great listener. He made sure that everything we were working for was clear and that I understood the outcome. Him and is team are the best at what they do. I would go back to them in a heartbeat.

Scott is a very compassionate attorney who took all the necessary steps to move my divorce forward in the most cost effective way possible. He is an expert in matrimonial law. Scott made sure I understood every single option of my divorce proceeding and made sure I was comfortable with whatever decisions were made. He has outstanding listening skills and was very supportive during my divorce proceeding. LaTerra and Hodge has a great team of attorneys including Scott, Jeff, and Sunita. Valentina, the paralegal, is also wonderful. She was very attentive to my needs. The firms billing was very reasonable especially considering the amount of work that had to be done for my divorce. I recommend LaTerra and Hodge to anyone seeking a matrimonial attorney.

Scott was very helpful and honest when consulting with me. While some lawyers may take advantage and prey on a client during a vulnerable time, Scott gave me trustworthy advise and comfort during a nerve racking situation. Very professional and reliable from what I've experienced so far.

Mr Laterra was my lawyer for divorce that was finalized in August 2014. I started with mediation in January with a different lawyer - which was a disaster. The mediation lawyer was not responsive. Mr Laterra worked to get the MOU done and the PSA and subsequently the divorce in a timely manner with no unnecessary drama. His paralegal, Ms. Khadkevich, is the most professional person I have ever worked with and returned every call or email same day. They treated a difficult, emotional situation with utmost respect and I certainly would give them my recommendation.

Scott and his assistant Valentina were genuinely helpful and very professional.
From start till the end they were there for me.
There were very reasonable in their billing as well.
I wish there are more law firms like them.
I highly recommend them.

My Lawyer was very helpful when it came to getting together all my information and cover sheets. He worked with me step by step, helping me to understand what is going on with my case every step of the way. I would definitely recommend this lawyer to other individuals.

Reach out to Laterra & Hodge pre or post judgment...Scott and his team are superb. Scott is the attorney you want standing by you.

I hired Scott Laterra to defend me against false claims my x-husband brought against me. Soctt's compassion, knowledge, and guidance calmed me down and gave me confidence that my x-husbands claims would be proven false. Scott went above and beyond to help me understand what would go on in court. Scott really showed he cared about me as a client and was always very responsive to any concerns or questions I had about my case.
My day in court with Scott Laterra representing me really took away my anxiety. Scott was able to cross examine my x-husband with knowledge of all family law and the facts of the case. After his cross examination Scott asked for a a dismissal of the case without me having to testify, the judge granted the request.
I was blessed to have Scott Laterra as my attorney. He is a very honest, dedicated, professional and respectful lawyer. I will use his services anytime I need an attorney in the future. I highly recommend Scott to anyone looking for a honest and compassionate family attorney.
