    • I recommend Roy Scott.

    I was charged with a serious felony charge regarding my wife's children. No lawyer would believe me, they all wanted me to take a plea and go to prison. They wouldn't even listen to my story. Mr. Scott listened and said this is what we can do. He was great. He did everything right. He took my case to a jury trial but right before that actually happened, he called me and told me the charges were dropped. I am so grateful to this man. I would recommend him to anyone with a serious criminal charge. I was innocent and didn't want to take a plea. Mr. Scott said then you shouldn't. That was so good to hear.

    • I do not recommend Roy Scott.
    • I hired Roy 1-3 years ago.
    • Roy handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Let me start off by saying that this attorneys law firm came recommended to me by another attorney. NOT this attorney. I was told to hire Damian Castillo, but ended up hiring Mr. Scott. My case was the kind of case "the good ol' boys" needed to handle. Its amazing to me Mr. Scott has a bar card. Every aspect of my dealings with Mr. Scott and his law form was terrible. His staff are rude, unprofessional, and just plain neglectful. After retaining Mr. Scott for the hefty sum of $10,000 dollars, a couple of months into it another charge (the exact same charge) was added to my case. I was told I needed to pay 15,000 MORE dollars. I scrapped the bottom of the barrel to come up with the funds, b/c he assured me my case would be resolved in my favor, and his law office already had all my files and were pretty familiar with my case. That was the biggest mistake I ever made, and I learned a hard lesson from it. I was already very unhappy with the treatment I received from the firm, but I was desperate because I had already invested 10,000 dollars into it. He is completely unreachable. For that sum of money I DESERVE to have a cell phone number given to me so I could communicate, but was told "we don't give out cellphone numbers". I have retained other attorneys since then, and are always given cell phone numbers. To make a long story short, 2 years and 25,000 dollars later I was talked into the worst plea bargain for my case. Mr. Scott is the worst negotiator I have ever seen, he wouldn't even try to get the 10 year community supervision reduced. If you have had the misfortune of being assigned to him as your court appointed, hire someone else.

    This one charged me alot, and I got nothing. He said over the phone my case would be a done deal, just bring the money. That was 6 months ago. Moved out of Texas. Got a letter a day before a hearing, and had to fly down there at last minute. He said he talked to County Attourney and it was all wrapped up. Got a letter Saturday, said a jury trial is scheduled for next week. Never got phone calls, never got them returned. Never got proof that he was doing anything. Never got anything but lies and hassle. I wouldn't even give him 1 star!
