    A lawyer becomes a legend

    Many reviews can be long-winded. This review is concise, and is the only one you need to read to make your decision to retain Scott. Becoming a legend requires expert knowledge, strategic thinking, and tactical execution. If you're reading the reviews like I did before retaining Scott, he made your short list. I'm here to tell you he needs to be at the top of your list. Every attorney is expensive, but not every attorney is worth it. Scott IS worth it! If you are looking to save $125K, then you need to hire a legendary attorney. Scott is a legend!!

    Effective, ethical, and worth every penny!

    I hired Scott in 2013 to help with a post modification child support judgment. My case was highly complex and the opposing party was very uncooperative. When I procured his services, I was receiving $0 per month in child support for two children, no medical support, and had a sizable amount in back child support owed to me. Mediation was not surprisingly, unsuccessful. The OP (opposing party) would not negotiate or be reasonable. As Scott's staff diligently prepared for trial, they were able to find several ways in which the opposing party had lied, misrepresented his income, and basically played the system. Without his paralegal's exceptional work, my outcome would have been very different. At trial, I was amazed by Scott's courtroom presence. He was confident, knowledgeable, and he definitely got the job done! Throughout this almost two year process, Scott and his staff were there for my family every step of the way. He was kind, caring, but also very realistic about what we could accomplish. The final judgement far exceeded my expectations. I honestly could not have asked for a better resolution. OP now has to pay a monthly child support and arrearage payment and must contribute to medical expenses. A considerable amount was also paid towards the arrearages and OP was responsible for my lawyers fees. When lawyers fee came up in court, the judge hearing my case stated that many other lawyers would have charged double what Scott did for his services. I cannot say enough good things about Scott and his team of paralegals. I understand that my case may be exceptional, but words cannot express the difference this lawyer and his paralegals have made in the my life and the lives of my children. If you have doubts about hiring him, DON'T. The only thing you will regret is not hiring him sooner.

    Very pleased with the outcome and service!!

    Scott did an excellent job representing me with my case. He was professional and diligent in making sure that I got everything that I wanted in mediation. Anything involving the legal system can be very complicated, but Scott was very informative and gave great advice. Lucky for me, I was able to settle my custody case in mediation, instead of spending thousands of dollars for litigation. He spoke up, had my back and made valid arguments that ultimately lead to a win in court for me!! I will definitely be recommending Scott Schlegel to any friends in need of an awesome attorney!!

    Seeking Excellence?

    Mr. Schlegel executed my case extremely well. He was diligent, he was supportive and he went above and beyond to exceeded my expectations. When you're going through a divorce, the last thing you need is added stress from an inadequate attorney. Well, Mr. Schlegel was far from that and the perfect choice for me. Although I had been going through emotional distress due to my divorce, I ultimately found peace in knowing that I had a great attorney to defend me. I am beyond pleased with Scott and recommend him to all!

    Dedicated and Knowledgeable

    I contacted Schlegel Law Office when my current parenting plan no longer was in the best interests of my child. Other attorneys had told me there was no chance of modifying the existing parenting plan. Scott disagreed, and after a long legal battle we received a very favorable ruling. Scott stayed involved with my case and realized how much it meant to me and my son. I highly recommend Scott Schlegel.

    Best Family Law Attorney in Orlando!!!

    I'm am so thankful I have Scott Schlegel on my side. Scott and his wonderful staff made me feel at ease and were always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I would without hesitation recommend his professional legal services. When I was in need of advice he listened with an open ear and made me feel as though my situation was a priority. Caring and thorough in his analysis of my case Scott provided the best possible solution to my situation and the result was a positive outcome I never would have imagined. He inspired confidence and helped me to see that I had options and most importantly that I could move forward with my life.

    worst lawyer ever

    This was my first time having to hire a lawyer and by far a bad experience. I contacted Mr. Schlegal regarding my case. I was giving my amount, I was told that as soon as I paid half i would be represented. The same day I did so. A week before my appearance I was told he could not represent me because my court date was closer than they thought. I asked for a refund and was told no. Finally after arguing and threatening to contact the news I was told I would be represented. The day off the appearance he did not come prepared and seemed to help the person I took to court more than myself. After I contacted his team and was told someone would contact me. No one ever did so I called and called. I left messages and finally got through to Crystal. After 5minutes on the phone she hung up on me and did not call back. I left it alone and figured what is done is done. It's been months and they have not filled my paperwork and when I called to ask questions I was told it was $150.00 a hour because my case is now closed. I have never felt robbed like this a day in my life. I would never ever use him again
