Mr. Sikes is an always will be to our family "The Attorney Who Saved Our Son's, Life" because of his Trustworthiness, Knowledge, Strategy, and Expertise our Son is able to Medically Retire, and seek the Medical Care he desperately needs. During The Trial He was Brillant ! Mr. Sikes was Fierce in the Military Court Room Setting . Mr. Sikes and his Wife Jenny treated us like Family. I would recommend Mr. Sikes 100% If you are backed up in a corner Mr. Sikes is the Attorney you want to Hire!

I hired Scot to represent me for an administrative "Show Cause" board for the Army. He was on point in all areas. I could not have asked for a better outcome. Ultimately I was retained in the service.

I couldnt have asked for a better experience or a more satisfied outcome. Scot and his team exceeded all of my expectations and fullfilled all of my needs for my situation. Scot is a very caring and thoughtful person but also frank and honest. He will tell you exactly what he believes and will not lead you astray. He worked hard on my case and was always there for me when i had a question or problem. His team is probably the best in columbus and provided me with outstanding service. Randi is a expert and a true professional. I am so glad I chose the Sikes law office for my divorce!

I used Mr. Sikes for my divorce and custody case and he was a big help. I would recommend him to anyone.

Scot was a great attorney for me. He was very honest and fees were more then fair. Over the three years he worked on my divorce/custody case, I not only looked at Scot as my attorney but as friend. Scot got the result I wanted and more. His staff is outstanding. Randi and wife Jenny I cannot thank them enough for all the help and advice weather it was face to face or via email or by phone. If you are looking for a true professional that has integrity Scot is that attorney and I will recommend him to any friend or family member.

I hired this attorney because he and his office seemed like they would work hard. Everytime I called to get an update, I would be treated as a bother by either Jenny his wife/secretary or Randi his paralegal. They would play good cop bad cop when the wanted something from me.
Also, I would be told something by the same two and use that as law. When I would mention that they said that, they would deny saying it. They never would admit their mistakes. I was stationed away from Georgia for a long amount of time during my divorce and was in constant contact with Randi. After they requested another retainer to go to court, I asked for a breakdown of my last retainer.
A few days later they requested to remove themselves as my attorney due to no contact ith the client. I had hundreds of emails between the paralegal and myself. They just realized that they would have a hard time getting more money out of me so they wanted removal as my Lawyer. They are lazy, shady, and rude. DO NOT USE THEM!!!!

Mr. Sikes represented me in a DUI case three weeks ago. I was very scared because I serve in the military and knew that a DUI on my record would mean an absolute end to my career. I provided Mr. Sikes with all that he requested. He negotiated on my behalf and was able to get my charges reduced. I am very pleased with my outcome. I highly recommend Mr. Sikes!

Please seek assistance elsewhere. This was my first offense ever, I never had any problems with the law. I've never had a seat belt ticket or speeding ticket. I was told that everything would boil down to a hefty fine. If he could not manage that he told me we would have some bargaining room since I was first time offender. A year and half later I get a phone call saying what the solicitor and he worked out. It was nothing even close to what I was told. Here it is :1 year probation. 4 months limited driving, be careful here here Scot will tell you that you can go many more places than you are actually allowed. My fines were double what Scot told me, I found that out after appearing in court. Supervised probation, every week I must meet with a probation officer, and I now I am required to do 8 hours of community service, of the probation officers choosing for a month and half. You do not get to do the community service of your choice as he will tell you. The final thing is DUI classes. Everything I was told that would be taken care of, well ended up much worse than was definitely expected. I could not reach him on the phone to save my life, the only time I spoke with him over the phone was when he called me and told me, what him and the solicitor came up with. I never had the chance to bargain with anything. A reckless driving driving charge and a very big fine is what you should expect, from other lawyers I have spoken with about my case. I do realize that what I did was wrong, and I have learned my lesson from it, but it is extremely disheartening to run across people every week who have had a much better out come than I had.

Attorney Sikes provided expert counsel on an administrative military matter. His knowledge of military administrative law is excellent. Furthermore, he worked with me to develop a strategy for the matter that ultimately proved successful. I was very happy with the result.
