    I did not meet with Scott but rather an associate.. She was very good and did a nice job of explaining all the different aspects of the will and trust papers. I was quite satisfied.

    Scott and his staff explained the divorce process to me clearly and concisely. They answered all my questions and when I had special requests they complied. Even best was that there were no charges above and beyond what I expected. I appreciated their efforts and help and the final outcome was what I had hoped for. I recommend Scott Sumner, and I will seek out his services in the future should I need them. Thanks.

    • I recommend Scott Sumner.

    We met with Scott Sumner to revise our will. He was efficient, well prepared for our meeting, and very thorough in the services he offered. After that meeting, his assistant was available to answer numerous questions as we considered our options. When we needed further advice, he was willing to give a detailed and clear written explanation that helped us make the best decisions for our complicated circumstances. We definitely recommend Scott Sumner and his staff to anyone needing to set up a Family Trust.

    Mr. Sumner was very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful o my wife and I in setting up our estate plan. We initially met with him whereby he reviewed our current status and goals, he asked us about our plans for the future and explained everything in simple terms about estate planning. He gave us homework to compile a list of all assets we owned. We met with him a second time where he presented to us our finalized estate plan in a leather binder an customized to our needs. He explained next steps and always made himself available to answer and follow up questions we had after we left his office.

    We had our trust set up through Mr. Sumner. He did an excellent job and everything went very smoothly. A few years later our credit union gave us some trouble regarding our trust. Mr. Sumner and his office responded quickly to resolve the matter for us. It was an error on the credit unions side.

    We would highly recommend his services.

    I worked with Scott to develop a will and living trust.
    The entire process from setting an appointment, meeting and receiving the binder of documents was a very reasonable process.
    I found Scott to be thorough, professional and very knowledgeable.
    In the event I have similar issues or required consultation, I would certainly consider calling him again.

    When we go through the trials of life there are things we need to be ready for including the death of our beloved parents. If you put off your family legal affairs until it's to late you will regret it. Trust me, the last thing you will be thinking about after a parent passes is legal paperwork, I learned it when my Mother passed. Not one single thing was prepared legally and it was a living nightmare.

    I have one parent remaining and I wasn't going to live a nightmare twice. I needed a professional attorney who could get it done correctly so that when that times again I will not have to fret over legal paper work.

    Mr. Sumner was professional and courteous and I would recommend him to anyone, he will be our family attorney as long as we remain.

    In a lapse of judgement I left the scene of a parking lot fender-bender. I was charged with a misdemeanor for fleeing the scene of an accident. As a public schools administrator this could be potentially very embarrassing and could have negative implications for my career.

    Scott Sumner was able to successfully plead my case down to a civil infraction which is the equivalent of a traffic ticket. Thanks to Scott I still have a clean criminal record and that is a huge relief! I highly recommend Scott Sumner as an attorney who will know what to do to ensure the most favorable outcome that is possible. I am very grateful I hired him to defend me.

    My brothers, sister, and I are very pleased with Scott Sumner. Scott is a very kind and knowledgeable Attorney. He walked us through and completed the estate planning process for our elderly parents and educated us along the way for our own future estate planning for our own children. We are confident our parent’s estate will be dispersed to us in an efficient and orderly manner. We would definitely recommend Scott for this service and any other legal services. Thank you Scott!

    Scott was professional and knowledgably in his Estate Planning services. He spent time evaluating our needs and making recommendations. His office packaged all of our Estate Planning documents in a nice binder for storage. I would highly recommend Scott.
