4.5 stars 22 totalReview Scott Schlegel
Scott is an amazing attorney, and has been such an immense help in modifying timesharing with my daughters. Scott is knowledgeable, aggressive, and truly cares about me as a client and the work he is doing on my behalf. I feel so much more comfortable with this process with Scott on my side. Retaining Scott as my attorney is easily the best decision I've ever made and I will continue to recommend him to anyone who needs a family law attorney.
Scott was very responsive before the first check was received. After that, i felt I was chasing him for information. My case took much longer than it should have (confirmed with other attorneys) My impression was he has over booked himself and doesn't give you the time you deserve. One year after my settlement agreement was signed I went to another attorney, who flat told me I never should signed what I did. Long story short, I was not happy with the "service" I receieved. If you are looking for a personal approach to legal services, this is not where to go.
Mr. Schlegel and his team are great to have on your side. Knowledgeable in family proceedings. Always kept me up to date on matters and made life less stressful when my son's mother attorney was acting up. He was able to get 98% of what I wanted so I'm very pleased with the outcome. Definitely recommend Mr. Schlegel and his team.
I contacted Scott for a difficult case. His team walked me through step by step, so I knew what was going on at all times. By the end of my divorce he was able to get most of what I was asking the court for and when it came to custody of my daughter he managed for me to obtain 70%. His prices are very competitive compared to other lawyers and he is straight forward about he can and can’t do.
When I first contacted Scott Schlegel, he said he could be as calm or as aggressive as he needed to be for me. When we finally went to mediation, that proved to be the case. I felt very safe and confident with Scott on my side. He is a great negotiator and steps up when he needs to. Thank you Scott for making a very difficult time better for me.

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!!

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.

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!!

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!

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.
