    Hired Attorney

    worst person / money grubbing

    My now ex husband hired him to represent him in a 1st offense minor dug arrest.
    he postponed for many months until her got paid all his fees then told this permanent
    resident w children in this country to take a plea deal. he told this good man and great
    father that if he plead guilty he would get ARD /boot camp. Once he plead guilty he was
    sent to prison and deported because this [ i use this word loosely] lawyer told him it would
    be fine and he would b out in few months to boot camp. He never responded to my calls since
    i have power of attorney now and my daughter lost her father to deportation because this man
    said he should take the deal. this wonderful,hard working,loving father will never see his
    children again thanks to this lawyer.

    Knowledgeable

    Scott is a great attorney. If you want a pit-bull in your corner he is the one to have. He does not sugar coat this not only with you but with his opponents. If you want a no nonsense straight to the point style attorney, use him!
    He is an amazing attorney and I have faith in him to be successful in any case. He will also be honest and tell you whether or not you even have a case. He will not drag you on, take your money only to lose. He DOES NOT like to lose so he will be the best that he can.

    Avoid

    Very poor business. Phone calls never returned, no work on my case in a few months and I had to fire him as a result. Other, more knowledgeable attorneys in area are much cheaper, too. Incompetant, unethical, unprofessional staff (girlfriends?), among many others. Avoid unless you want trouble.

    BAD NEWS!

    Bad NEWS! This guy is so bad I ended up negotiating my divorce with my Ex-wife and her attorney directly. This guy could not negotiate visitation terms or even win a simple case involving transportation. He would NEVER return phone calls, never return e-mails, and never consult with you about your case, strategy, or anything. He's horrible at answering our questions (HUGE ego problem - God Complex). He would never call you to let you know what happened in court when he would represent you in your absence. He is a rogue attorney who goes off and files things (whenever he gets around to it - When he feels like it) without your knowledge or permission. He even screwed up my custody case wherein my daughter had been sexually assaulted in her home by waiting for months too long to file any paperwork. The Judge yelled at him about this in court! This guy could not win his way out of a wet paper bag let alone ANY case in court! He's a useless waste of Oxygen! Please do not waste your money on this Bad, Bad, Bad Lawyer!!! Needless to say, I ended up firing his butt after I had finally had enough. I'm considering reporting this clown to the state ethics board and the Allegheny County Bar Association for his clearly demonstrated poor ethics, misrepresentation, misconduct, manipulation and theft by deception. At times during my divorce, I believed he was possibly working for apposing counsel. That should NEVER be the case. I always felt as though my case did not matter to him. All he was ever interested in was money, and how he could get more out of my pocket. Slick talker when it comes to getting you to pay him but once he has your money, he turns into a ghost in the fog. If you hire this guy (even to wash your kids bicycle) you will end up regretting it!!! Trust me, I've Been there, Done that (over a few years), and glad I fired him!! He does NOTHING honorably!

    Estate

    Phone calls never returned . Over priced .Thinks he works for the head of the estate not the estate . Caused family problems for not properly instructing head of there duties and that they may in no way have a personal gain in an estate.
    Pa estate return not filled out correct . Family settlement agreement was closing estate before house was sold . Leaving rest of family to hire there own lawyers to get questions answered because he or the rep. will not answer them . Leaving estate still open for many years .

    Not Recommended

    I was a client, but was never able to get my phone calls returned in a timely fashion. This attorney, while extremely knowledgeable, never kept me informed concerning the status of my case.
