I hadn't lived in Arizona for more than a couple of weeks the first time I met with Attorney McWilliams. I had just purchased my first car and I, like many young adults, was taken advantage of by the dealership and their finance manager. I went to The Law Office of Scott J. McWilliams, L.L.C. to have Attorney McWilliams review my contract, and to hopefully have him address a few of the issues I had with the finance manager at the dealership. To my surprise, and utmost satisfaction, it took Attorney McWilliams just a few phone calls to the dealership to have my payments lowered by almost one hundred dollars per month. His ability to pay such close attention to detail also led him to notice other discrepancies on the contract I hadn't, and was able to get me a full refund for a service I didn't even know I purchased when I purchased the car.
It was evident to me, from the moment I met him, that Attorney McWilliams is extremely diligent and works very hard for his clients, regardless of the size of the case or situation at hand. Attorney McWilliams kept me completely informed throughout the whole process and never made me feel like my problem was too small or my concerns were illegitimate. He exceeded my expectations in every aspect of his representation of me, which is why I sought his advice when it came to my next endeavor, purchasing a home.
I did not want to get in the same situation with my new home as I did with my car, which is why I brought all my paperwork and contracts into Attorney McWilliams prior to signing any documents. I was able to rest assured knowing that Attorney McWilliams was on my side making sure I understood what was on each piece of paper before I signed it.
I have and continue to refer anyone I know to The Law Office of Scott J. McWilliams, L.L.C. LLC and Attorney McWilliams. If you're in need of legal representation, or just have a few questions you want to ask an experienced attorney, Attorney McWilliams and The Law Office of Scott J. McWilliams, L.L.C. is where you should turn.
After the initial consultation we retained his office for our case. We had already filed the initial paperwork & attended the 1st hearing without representation at which time it was decided we should retain counsel as opposing side had. Based on a recommendation from an associate we met Scott & initially liked what we heard, but asked on a scale of 1-10 how good he is, he stated an 11, not true, and referred to opposing counsel as a 4 out of 10 when asked. Confident we needed representation, we signed the standard contract for payment based on the estimated cost of our case, with little concern we should require any more cost based on what needed to be completed through the finality of our case. But (2) days prior to hearing we received a call from Scott at which time he notified us that our case would cost significantly more than we had signed the contract for, increased our cost by 65% more than agreed too & that if we didn't agree to it, he would not represent us in court, in 2 days. What do you do when you have fulfilled your contract payment for representation at a cost of thousands & right before court he calls you to tell you we have used all that $$$ up & needs thousands more to represent you further. That right there should tell you 1 of 2 things, either he estimates low to get your $$$ & a signed contract or basically he can't add properly. Maybe both, since it works either way in his favor. With that said, we won the case based on work WE completed through the courts, not his representation. Scott was not prepared at all for the immediate ruling we received, but just the opposite, which a ruling would have come down a few days later via minute entry from the judge. We were not prepared by our attorney in any way to cover the decisions the judge required right after his ruling which in the end cost us dearly in monetary value, not Scott.
So in an overview, we were charged more than our original contact, Scott didn't prepare us or himself for the immediate ruling from judge, didn't request a clarification from the judge on his calculations, which cost us, not him, & left us to deal with the debacle he created by not being fully prepared like the 11 out of 10 he portrays of himself. We should have saved our $$$ & just represented ourselves, couldn't have been any worse than what we received hiring Scott MsWilliams....
Finally after waiting weeks for a follow-up call from Scott to submit the "Clarification Request" motion, I stopped by to see him to discuss options & his math on additional charges above the original contract. We met in parking lot as I was coming & he was going & for the life of me I will never understand HOW he couldn't remember me, but he clearly didn't. After a few minutes I stated my name & his only reasoning for not recognizing me was from him having too many clients. My belief is he is consumed by quantity & not quality of his clients, with that said he does not represent what you should receive from an actual attorney. Some care about the money & show it off by driving very expensive sport cars, others actually care about what they represent in the matters of law, look for the latter if your serious about getting your moneys worth from your attorney,because we didn't.
I recently hired The Law Office of Scott J. McWilliams LLC, and am very happy with the work done. The law office and Attorney McWilliams handled my legal matter in a professional and timely manner. Mr. McWilliams personally went through each document with me and explained everything to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend The Law Office of Scott J. McWilliams LLC to others and would use the office again if another legal issue was to arise.
