I hired Scott going by the reviews he received, now I know those were all lies. He was hired to do a bankruptcy and failed to file the final paperwork and my bankruptcy was denied because of it. I asked specific questions regarding not filing bankruptcy on my home, and now I find out that he was wrong, my house shows that bankruptcy was filed on the mortgage and no re affirmation papers were filed by Scott. Scott never returned any of my phone calls and still does not return my calls regarding my home.
Scott recently helped me with a traffic case and I cannot say enough good things about him. He was always there when I had any questions or needed anything. I was very happy to be dealing with someone I could actually trust.
Helped me with a misdemeanor case in Rochester. Rochester is a tough district court and the odds weren't in my favor, however Mr. Zochowski was able to pull it off and my entire case was dismissed. He went above and beyond with my case, meticulous, witty, and friendly. Highly recommend him, without a doubt.

I run a small business and switched payroll services a couple years ago to save money. I guess there were some discrepancies with my quarterly 941 payroll tax forms, and that triggered an audit. Still trying to save money, I was working directly with the local IRS agent and thought I had things under control. That was until my bank called me and told me that all of my business and personal checking and savings accounts had been garnished by the IRS.
Scott's office not only got the IRS levy released and my funds put back in my accounts. They did it in 24 hours, and as a result I did not have any interruptions to making my payroll that week. After that, we reviewed my income tax records and agreed that I had actually overpaid for the year being audited. 1 month later, I got a large refund check from the IRS.
Finally, we reviewed my personal property taxes and I was given a form that will let me claim an exemption from local property taxes this year. All total, between the reduced tax liability, the tax refund and the tax exemption, I saved about $15,000 with the help of Scott's office.

Scott Zochowski won our custody case in family court, but it can be simplistic to review one’s legal counsel based on simply the judgment rendered by the court. In our case, with Mr. Zochowski’s advocacy, we won our claim for legal custody and parenting time, but our case did more than that. It saved our two children from a biological parent who is now a convicted felon and abusive caregiver.
While we had a solid basis for our claim, the complexities and expectations of the family court system can be challenge; in this case, the biological parent retained another lawyer at the last minute who was every bit the worst example of his kind in his manner and his practice of law. With all of that, Scott Zochowski took our case and was able to swiftly deal with every legal maneuver attempted, even being able to effectively argue our case and examine witnesses at an evidentiary hearing that took us painfully through an entire day of wrangling. He understood the urgency needed by our family for a judgment and he understood how desperately my children needed to be protected from their father. Unlike so many lawyers, he was prepared for that effort, not being double-booked or allowing any other priorities to distract him.
I am certainly thankful for our victory in our case, but I am more thankful for the care, compassion, and seriousness with which Scott Zochowski approached our case, and the thoughtful and dedicated work he brought to bear on our case. If you are looking for a lawyer who will treat you like a person, deliver the best legal counsel, and treat you as his most important client, you can do no better than to retain Scott Zochowski.

Scott is a fantastic attorney. My ex husband had been convicted of a crime involving criminal sexual conduct-Scott fought my ex and was able to get me and my children sole legal custody and suspended parenting time so they don't have to see their father. Scott did this on very little notice and with a full day trial. He was wonderful, professional and calm, despite the really crazy things my ex' s attorneys threw out.

Scott is a tremendously effective and efficient lawyer. He will listen to you and help you get what you need for a positive outcome. He not only helped me find a resolution, he was able to get the charges reduced, no sentence, and reduced fines owed. AND he did this with just one visit to court where we expected to have to go at least three times, he did it in one visit. He exceeded my expectations. He will fight for you and make you feel like you are his only client. I highly recommend Scott for any advice or legal needs you have.
