Worst ripoff artist I have ever come across. I gave him 2,500 as a retainer balance for a divorce. He completely failed to serve my wife, didnt have any paperwork ready, and did zero work except for showing up to court late twice to ask for continuations. I told him I didn't need his "services" anymore, and he gave me back $50 dollars of the 2,500. I asked him what he had done to earn the money, he said he made phone calls and did paperwork. I asked him to produce the paperwork, he said he had lost it. I asked for a list of phone calls, he gave me a phone bill that was unreadable because he photo copied over and over to where you could not read anything on the page. I was able to see that there were about twenty phone numbers on there, about a minute each phone call, and said he had made 25 calls at a hundred dollars an hour, but a one minute phone counts as an hour, so that 25 minutes of phone calls cost 2,500. He made sure the numbers were not readable so I could not call to see what he needed to call those numbers for. As a result I had no legal representation at court when my wife had an actual real lawyer and I lost custody of my daughter. This guy is a huge con artist, I thought I could trust him since I was in the Navy and he was a jag lawyer. Worst mistake of my life. DO NOT TRUST THIS THIEF!!!! You have been warned.
Scott did wills, living wills, and powers of attorney for my wife and myself. Great job. It was easy and painless.
When I needed an attorney and thought my world had come to an end, Scott Hallauer provided me with ease of mind and defended my interests perfectly. I truly believe him to be the best attorney in Virginia. I highly recommend him for all your legal needs.
