I am very happy I have Scott Levine as my lawyer in a divorce matter. He is extremely professional, yet easy to talk to. He is very responsive to both calls and texts, even after normal business hours.
His billing time and rates are very fair -- he charges only for the hours he has invested in the case, not a bit more.
He keeps the process moving along, is prompt in filing the necessary paperwork, is extremely knowledgeable about court process, precedents, and procedures, and prepares legal paperwork for the courts in a clear and concise fashion. By comparison, the lawyers of other party involved seem totally disorganized and confused about divorce law and proper court document preparation.
He is also a voice of reason. He won't paint a rosy picture of the potential outcome, promise you that you'll get out of the divorce process unscathed (most people will not), and then contradict himself when something unexpected is presented.
As an offshoot of that, he also strives to achieve what is fair and attainable between both parties in the legal matter. While it may be great to think about "sticking it" to the other party involved, Mr. Levine is focused on both parties leaving the table with their fair share (no more than that for the other party, of course).
No lawyer can magically force matters through court or suddenly make the opposite side of the case see reason, but I believe that Mr. Levine does the best anyone could do in a tough situation.
It's great to know of a lawyer who is apparently atypical in the legal profession -- he truly cares about taking care of his clients. I have second-hand exposure to a friend's legal representation. and they're totally uncaring and unprofessional about providing the proper legal support at the appropriate time. I wish more lawyers were like Mr. Levine, or that he was able to take over my friend's legal matters as well.
I would not wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Levine if I wasn't thoroughly impressed with his work. I would never recommend three other legal firms I'm peripherally aware of based on their lack of quality. In contrast, I have recommended Mr. Levine both to a friend and to a coworker who are also in need of a lawyer. I will continue to recommend him whenever the opportunity arises.

I felt Scott was very fair and honest in his business practices. I found that Scott would warn me up front as to the potential costs of any litigation before proceeding, however, was always willing to do whatever I felt necessary. He always tried to keep me in the loop regarding potential costs, as well as outcomes, and I also felt his fees were very reasonable.. Likewise, he would send me updates throughout my case, whether it was 3:00 on Wednesday afternoon, or 11:30 PM on Sunday night. I would not hesitate using Scott in the future for my legal needs.

I am honored to recommend Scott Levine. He represented me in child custody matters. In the beginning we sat down and talked about the details and discussed a path of approach for achieving the desired outcome. Through the entire process he kept me informed of what was happening and aware of what to expect. As my case progressed a change of state jurisdiction occurred and Mr. Levine provided outstanding counsel in handling such matters. I feel he handled my case in a very personal way, above and beyond the scope of our contract.

I have recommended Scott to a number of people in the past couple of years. Scott handled my divorce, child custody, child support, alimony (filed by my ex-husband against me) and PFA (against my ex-husband). I imagine there are not many other lawyers who would have stuck through the unpredictability and difficulty involved in dealing with my ex-husband - but Scott did; he handled everything successfully. He was communicative, responsive, reassuring and knowledgeable. I hope I never have to go through a divorce again--but if I did, I would hire Scott.

Used Scott for my divorce and was not one bit dissatisfied. In the legal field, there are so many lawyers that try to squeeze blood from a turnip, Scott is not one of them. Very fair.

Scott is a great attorney. He is very knowledgable and did an exceptional job keeping me informed as to what was happening in regards to my case. Scott was always available via email, phone, or text and is truly working 24 hours a day. Scott has a great expertise when it comes to the law but I feel his greatest asset is that he is a good person. He is very compassionate and generous and above all, he is a straight-shooter. Scott will not always tell you what you want to hear, but rather, what you need to hear. I found this quality in Scott the most admirable. If you are looking for an attorney, look no further. Scott Levine is your man.

I am not going to lie I HATE SPENDING MONEY. But you get what you pay for and Scott Levine does get results. He leaves no stone unturned when fighting for custody. I called scott on a Sunday afternoon (he was the only one that answered) He has been handeling my divorce and most important my custody issues. I am glad I found Scott on that Sunday afternoon.

Although it was a complicated case, sine we had to deal with language barrier, different countries, and most communication were done by email, Mr. Levine kept me on the right track, and finally been able to resolve the case in a civilize way.

I am EXTREMELY happy about how Scott Levine represented me during my divorce in 2010-11. In our opening interview I explained that I wanted to be fair to my spouse with regard to wealth distribution and alimony, however I did NOT want to be taken advantage of. Scott fulfilled this goal with exceptional professionalism. He consistently provided critical information about my rights, requirements, and things I need NOT be doing. Yet, he allowed me to CHOOSE my path based on MY values and desires. He provided EXACTLY what I needed in a legal advise and representation. When necessary he aggressively defended my position and views in a fair, clear and concise manner. He provided excellent advice and guidance throughout my divorce. If you truly want to settle a divorce with your situation properly represented in support hearings, negotiations, and in front of a judge, you will not go wrong by retaining Scott Levine's services. I was completely satisfied with him as my Lawyer in my divorce.

During the difficult time in my life and legal process Scott held my hand and walked me through the process of a cumbersome nightmare - made it easy and sufficient enough for me to say Scott never sleeps he is straight in his comment.
