  • Peter Stuart Heller

    I have had the pleasure of working alongside Scott on many criminal cases over the years both as co-counsel and as attorneys representing co-defendants in both state and federal court. What I most admire about Scott is Scott's meticulous work ethic as well as his insatiable desire to advocate for his clients at an extremely professional and ethical level. Besides the cases we have worked together, I direct all family court matters that I come across to Scott without any reservation. The personal touch and his compassionate "bed side" manner are beyond reproach. I routinely receive calls from clients I have referred to Scott thanking me profusely for putting them in touch with him. What I hear most is how well he treats his clients and how accessible and competent he is.
