    • Scott handled my Child Custody matter.

    Scott is a very honest and straight forward attorney. He tells you exactly what you want to know and what you need to know to help your case. He listens to what his client wants and then goes after it, relentlessly. Scott helped me obtain the exact time sharing schedule I wanted and he truly cared about my child and I. I would definitely use him again if needed and I recommend him to anyone who needs legal representation.

    Scott was the most caring, compassionate and understanding attorney I had spoken with regarding my situation. I could not have asked for a better person to handle my case for me. With a successful ending, Scott and Colleen helped with sincere compassion. I knew right away they cared about my situation and truly wanted to help in reaching an outcome that was good for all involved. Thank you can not express enough how I feel about them both.

    • Scott handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    My divorce was a very emotional one. My husband committed an awful crime and was in jail awaiting trial through the entire divorce. I am 75 and we had been married for 28 years. I originally had another attorney who had to close down their practice. I am very glad for that now. The first attorney wasn't near as knowledgeable as Scott. He fought hard for me and I came out very well in the end. On top of that, he was very compassionate and made sure I was alright throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
