Jeff has been my attorney of choice for over 28 years. During this period Jeff has handled incorporations, estate planning, contracts and agreements and general legal advise in various areas. I've called Jeff many times seeking quick answers to minor legal questions and he has always made himself available to me. Recently Jeff has been working with my current employer on estate planning issues as well as employment contracts. My employer has been very satisfied with his work. Jeff is an attorney that I have often recommended with great success. I wouldn't use anyone else.

Jeff and his firm were extremely professional from the first day we engaged them. Unfortunately, our situation needed to be mediated and his knowledge, patience and experience kept the process moving to closure in a reasonable timeframe which ultimately minimized estate expense. I found him to be accessable and he answered all questons/concerns in a timely fashion. He maintained a professional balance in spite of a adversarial situation. I plan to use him again personally and would highly reccommend him to any of my friends.

I engaged Jeff to handle a very sophisticated estate matter for a long-time client of mine. This is a client and friend that I would not have trusted with just anyone. Jeff made both me and my client comfortable with his depth of expertise and thoughtful suggestions with respect to an estate that was both complicated and had a lot of emotional issues to it. Jeff was exceedingly deferential but also firm in his recommendations. The estate plan, which included a complex will, trust, power of attorney, deed and other instuments, was documented quickly and delivered in such a manner so as to make my client very comfortable. Without reservation, I would recommend Jeff to future clients of mine and, indeed, anyone in need of both routine and complex estate planning.

John J. Scroggin has been my business and family lawyer for over 25 years and during that period of time, he helped with many legal business decisions to be made and was most cooperative. His explanations, his expertise, his understanding of the complexities of legal matters was overwhelming. I would say that I never got 'so called' bad advice from Jeff. I conferred with him on all business transactions that I felt needed legal attention. He never failed me, my family or my company. He is currently updating my will and other matters that we are now doing at his insistence.
He tells it like it is, simply and to the point and for that I would recommend John J. Scroggin to anyone in need of legal assistance

Jeff Scroggin handled a very complex tax matter for me at a very difficult time in my life. He was thorough, knowledgeable and compassionate. I would highly recommend him.

Jeff is one of the best estate planning attorneys I have worked with. He has a passion for complicated estate and tax planning issues and always seems to be ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest rules and regulations.
Not only is Jeff highly knowledgeable in complicated estate/tax matters, he is timely which is a rare trait in the legal community.

Jeff has handled my estate planning matters for the last 10 years or so. He is an outstanding lawyer, extremely knowledgable in estate planning matters and very helpful. I recommend his services to my friends and family. I have never been disappointed.

Jeff is our trusted attorney who we turn to for
all of our legal and estate planning advice.
There is a reason he is entrusted by many well known names in Atlanta and is commonly featured in publications like the WSJ- He is not only very knowledgeable in his areas of expertise, but he also has a great deal of common sense- able to simplify the complex.
On top of that he is a personable guy- a true friend.
Take a look at his website profile to view some of his
credentials and experience:

Jeff has been the most knowledgeable attorney with whom I've ever worked. He explains clearly all facets of the problem at hand, and does extensive research if the facts are not always evident. Jeff has informed me and my family in most understandable terms, unusual in our previous experiences with our previous relationships with attorneys, mostly with the larger "community" downtown law firms. Jeff's billing is most fair, and I have always felt Jeff has done a lot more work for me than he bills me for. I give Jeff nothing but the highest accolades as a true professional and have recommended him to many of my associates as well.

great integrity and compassion, with a strong commitment to stewardship.

We have had the privileged of availing ourselves of Mr Scrogginâ€™s services for over 15 years. His advice has been most helpful in preparing our wills (complicated by the fact of our being a blended family); advising us during a parentâ€™s death; and even advice on a real estate tax matter. He has made himself available to us even when he is traveling out of town during speaking engagements. I trust him implicitly.

Jeff handled a delicate business transaction for my company. He is very knowledgeable and has a very good understanding of the law.
Posted by Michael, a Probate client, Flag
The work Mr Scroggin provided for our family was outstanding. Ours was a fairly complex issue, and he was able to clear up a situation that had been dragging for some time. His approach seemed very practical and we have been extremely pleased with the relationship.

I have found Jeff Scroggin to be very knowledgable and extremely professional. His honest and forthright approach to legal matters, such as development of our estate plan, was apparent and appreciated. His followup was admirable and unlike some attorneys he kept us well informed. He also represented us well in a complicated real estate transaction
His office staff is courteous and efficient.
I have no problem recommending Mr. Scroggin.

I have known Jeff Scroggin for over 20 years. And although I have worked with a number of top estate planning and tax attorneys, Jeff not only possesses one of the highest continuous thirsts for knowledge and passion for staying current I've ever known, but he is always on the 'leading edge' of new planning concepts and ideas for his clients.
But the other factor which comes across with Jeff is the size of his 'heart' and the fact that he truly cares about his clients and their financial as well as their personal well-being.
A number of years ago, Jeff 'nursed' me through a very painful and bitter splitup with a partner and negotiated an acceptable division of assets.

Jeff has been our corporate attorney for 25 years. He is the best at what he does. Always communicates with me on a timely basis and is constantly keeping me informed about changes in corporate law. Jeff is well rounded. He has a wealth of knowledge in many areas including tax law, corporate law, estate planning and others. I would highly recommend Jeff for all types of legal work. He is a wonderful person and genuinely cares about his clients.

We would recommend you shop elsewhere for probate services. Difficult to contact, unresponsive to requests for updates, required constant attention including having to hire an additional outside counsel to ride herd on this case. We could not get this attorney to act on a timely manner nor present information that we needed to have without browbeating him.
Perhaps the most difficult attorney relationship I have ever been involved with. The one thing you can count on is the monthly bill will always be on time. If you hire this guy we wish you good luck.
