My experience with this law firm was extremely disappointing to say the least. Mr. Scoresby is over his head in terms of volume and supervising his office. He proved passive, jeopardizing my position. His supporting office is very poor. He was arrogant and did not put his client first in terms of answering repeat questions or advocating on his client's behalf.
I hired Scoresby Family Law Firm in September of 2011 to handle my divorce case and I count it as one of the best decisions I've ever made. Mr. Scoresby and his paralegal Sylvia ensured that I was informed of every aspect of my case. If their office received a communication from the opposing attorney, I had an email with an attached scanned in copy of the communication the same day. When I had a question, they responded, often times within an hour of my initial question. Sylvia, the paralegal, pays attention to detail in her responses. I would ask a general question and her response would cover all of the bases and include other items that I had not previously considered. It wasn't uncommon to get an email from her late at night or over the weekend after I had asked a question after business hours. When I was told that specific documentation would be drafted for my review by a certain time, it was sent to me as promised. Because of their responsiveness and feedback, my anxiety about the case and proceedings was greatly reduced.
They were proactive in the case as well. They didn't assume anything and they ensured that I completely understood the proceedings and available options before planning a path forward. I was an active part of the strategy and they always requested my input before going forward.
You would think that this sort of service would cost a lot, but many of the items which appeared on my invoice I was not billed for. When I got my first bill, my jaw dropped. I had hired Mr. Scoresby after a horrible experience with another attorney and given all of the work that had been done, I expected the bill to be high. It wasn't. I think the reason I received such incredible value is because Mr. Scoresby runs an efficient, organized office with processes in place to ensure clients stay informed. You may not think this is important when hiring an attorney, but trust me, it is.
I highly recommend this attorney and his paralegal Sylvia. Hiring them made all the difference in my case.
