Scott was very informative, kept me up to date, answered any questions I had, let me know what was going to happen before it actually did, he gave me all the options. Scott was always on time and kept his appointments. I would suggest Scott to everyone and would use him again in the future.

Scott handled the bankruptcy filing for my older brother. My brother is a very hard worker, but the recent economy has not been kind to small contractors. He is great at what he does, but had no clue how to deal with the overwhelming debt left by people unable to pay him.
My work frequently involves working with or hiring attorneys in Michigan. It would be an unusual week that I am not meeting with or preparing documentation for an attorney or legal department. One of the attorneys in Michigan recommended Scott. My wife (a CPA) and I flew to Arizona to meet with Scott and help my brother figure out what to do.
Scott was very clear about the options, the costs, and the complexity. He had very long, very specific worksheets to aid in the data organization. He was both clear on what we needed to provide and quite patient when asked how it would be used. My brother, while very good at what he does, had no clue what was going on with the legal side of getting this resolved. Scott was consistently very prompt in returning calls and emails and was able to shift away from legal language and explain to my brother, in plain English, what was happening.
Like many clients, my brother asked for some things that could not be supported with documentation. Scott was polite, but clear that he would assist in every way possible within the law, but would have nothing to do with anything beyond that.
Scott was clear about time-frames and equally clear about the parts of the process that he could not predict. Some parts are decided or scheduled by others and he was able to say he did not know. This is not a real common trait in professionals.
I would highly recommend Scott as an attorney. His ethics, his attention to detail, his patience, and his frequent reminders combined to get this problem resolved as quickly and simply as possible.

Although results can never be guaranteed, Scott used his knowledge and expertise to fully provide us with options, best case scenarios, worst case scenarios with our case, and with that valuable information we were able to make a sound decision and move forward to resolution. He provided professional representation from properly filed paperwork to meetings before judges. He cares about the outcomes for his clients and does all he can to achieve success. I would recommend him to any friend, relative, or business associate if they needed this type of representation.

Mr. Hyder was great to work with during my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Mr. Hyder promptly returned my calls, kept me informed during the process as it unfolded, and answered all of my questions.

I was very pleased with Scott W Hyder. He is very knowledgeable in his field. He comes highly recommended based on my recent experience with a bankruptcy case.
Everything went very smoothly from start to finish. Scott kept me informed every step of the way. He was able to answer my questions before I even asked them. He explained everything very detailed and kept my mind at ease throughout the whole process.
If you need a good lawyer, without a doubt, I would highly recommend Scott W Hyder.

Scott was very thorough and accurate, he explained to me what I needed and when I needed it and because of his ability to be so precise my case was handled in a timely manner and to my satification.

Mr. Hyder is excellent, detailed, and professional. Any time I had questions he knew right where we were in the case and what was needed. This removed a lot of stress I would reommend him to friends and family . He is tried and true , why hire anyone else?

I was researching Lawyers and Bankruptcy information when I came across Scott's name and credentials. I narrowed my search to 3 Lawyers near me and contacted each one. Scott was the only one that spoke with me openly and did not keep trying to get me into the office. We covered a lot of information for what I considered a long time in the Lawyer billing world! (No charge)
My wife and I waited for 6 months prior to contracting with Mr Hyder while we saved some money and I tried to handle some creditor issues myself (I wouldn't recommend that, its not for the faint of heart). Our first in person meet with Scott went great and he filled in so many details and gave us both direction and a sense of relief. Scott answered every question we had, in a timely manner, we never missed a deadline. The day we showed for our creditor meeting in court we were suprised by all the other folks there in our same position, the diffrence was quickly evident; we were prepared thanks to Scott's attention to detail! We saw many people unprepared, with representation that was just as unprepared, we were very proud to have Scott by our side!
Our particular situation required a unique approach and Scott took us through it successfully!
We would use Scott again but hope to never have to! I have recommended Scott to family and friends and I will continue to do so.

One of the nicest and thorough attorneys I have ever worked with

Scott is one of the best lawyers I've used. He's is knowledgable and really does right by his client, while not acting like a "lawyer." Scott is also good at keeping you in the loop and explaining legal matters.
