About Me

My entire career as a lawyer has been dedicated to the practice of Immigration Law.  In 2002, I became Board Certified in Immigration and Nationality Law by The Florida Bar.  I am only one of approximately 50 lawyers in Florida with that designation.  I represent clients in jurisdictions all over the country and can practice immigration law in any state.  I handle all types of immigration cases such as family petitions, deportation and removal defense, naturalization, business immigration cases such as E, L, H and O visas, labor certifications, investor, student  and religious visas.  I have filed successful battered spouse cases for both male and female victims of domestic violence as well as U visa cases.  I have sued the government in federal court and I have been recognized as an expert witness in state court on immigration issues.  I have been extremely active in the South Florida Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).  I have held numerous postions on their Board and was honored to serve as Chapter President from May 2007 to May 2008.  I am currently the liaison between the chapter and the West Palm Beach USCIS office.  I won't do anything illegal or unethical (so don't ask) but I am aggressive and committed to giving you the highest quality representation available.  If I can be of service to you please feel free to call me at (561) 478-5353.

    Mr. Devore has a fantastic reputation here in South Florida. I ended up consulting with him on a legal matter related to a close family member. He was incredibly considerate, respectful and knowledgable. I will always appreciate his advice and wholeheartedly endorse him.

  • Dave Kumar Roy

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Scott for a few years. I just referred Scott to my best friend which made me think to endorse him on Avvo. Scott is amazingly talented as an immigration attorney. In fact, when I think of immigration, I would not send my clients or friends to anyone else.
