  • Diane Lynn Mancinelli

    I endorse this lawyer. Although, Scott is my younger brother, this endorsement is based on the legal work we have done together through the years. He is by far the most detailed lawyer in litigation matters I have ever worked with. He is an excellent writer and an innovative thinker. These qualities make an excellent litigator. I would not hesitate making a referral to him.
