    My husband and I were very happy with the professional service we received from Scott and his team . He explained the estate planning process very clearly and answered all our questions . His associate attorney and paralegal were also extremely helpful . They made the daunting process very easy . We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this firm to others .

    My wife and I had a will/trust set up. Much of this was new to us - Scott did an excellent job explaining the details of what we were doing and why, was patient in answering our questions, and ensured we were satisfied and understood things before we left. I'd recommend him to anyone thinking of setting up a will or trust.

    I'm a University of Michigan retiree and in 2015 they offered legal services through Hyatt. So I took advantage of this to get a trust set up saving about $2,000. One of Scott's associates was very helpful working with us and we got it taken care of.

    Had good experience with preparing living will & trust. Scott and his staff made my visits pleasant and extremely comforting by providing most information and answers without having to list many questions. Would definitely use this law firm again.

    We used Sumner and Associates to assist us with a home builder who failed to complete several repairs on our newly constructed home. Scott was very professional and comfortable to work with. He contacted the builder and was able to expedite the needed repairs, much to our satisfaction. Scott has also represented me for traffic violations, again with excellent results. We would highly recommend Sumner and Associates.

    I used Scott as my divorce attorney. On the day my divorce was to be final he indicated to me at the courthouse that there may be an "issue" with my divorce being final that day as he learned that a clause regarding the HAGUE CONVENTION needed to be in the divorce judgment effective the prior week. The judge did not honor my divorce that day due to my attorney at Sumner & Associates not having this clause in the judgment. I took a half of day off of work & was still billed for this court date due to his error and the judge indicated that we did not need to appear in court again & that my attorney just needed to forward paperwork & she would get it stamped asap. I also got charged a couple hundred dollars for that procedure where he did not have to appear in court & for the court date he was not prepared for. I questioned his office on this after I noticed it was never credited they still charged me for it with a large interest rate with my final bill I owed and than sent in a garnishment to my current employer. If he is a practicing attorney he should be aware of what needs to be in current judgments. I feel this was very unethical & their unwillingness to work with me especially after I was wrongfully terminated from my job of 14 years & having little income or much child support for my children & myself.

    Scott J. Sumner’s response: “Colleen, We are sorry that you feel your case was not handled in the utmost professional manner in which we strive to serve all of our clients. The facts of your case were simple and straight forward and we were able to get it settled quickly. We were also able to obtain terrific results in your favor. Afterwards, we attempted unsuccessfully to work with you on your outstanding legal fees. Due to your financial circumstances, you were not able to meet your financial obligations to our firm. The firm had no other choice than to attempt to collect a debt. We feel your negative review has more to do with the financial obligation you were not able to fulfill rather than the way your divorce was handled.”
