    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Ives and I have been opposing attorneys on several cases and I find him to be well prepared and highly capable. I regularly refer cases to him when I am unable to accept them.

  • Rachel Marie Fierro

    I endorse this lawyer. I have had Mr. Ives as an opposing attorney on several cases. He is very knowledgeable of the law and argues with passion for his clients. As a result of seeing his work ethic, tenacity and skills as a family law attorney, I know that the same skills carry over to his other fields of law; therefore, I have referred several employment cases to him, a field that I do not practice. I trust Scott Ives and know that when I refer a client to him, he will do his best to resolve their respective issues in the client's favor.
