Recently, Mr. Scott was involved in a particularly contentious custody case. His client came to him in dire need of help. She had given birth to her child a mere 20 days earlier. At the time she first met with Mr. Scott, the infant was in the custody of the 20-year old father, who had the mother arrested by accusing her of domestic violence. This father had used this as a means of obtaining temporary custody orders and was requesting permanent physical custody of the infant. Within 2 days, Mr. Scott was able to get family court orders returning the child to the mother and ordering that the father have only supervised visitation. Christian Scott then represented his client in the criminal case which arose from the father’s original accusation of domestic violence. After a 5-day jury trial, his client was found to be not guilty of the charges. Subsequent to the jury trial, Mr. Scott returned to family court and obtained permanent orders granting mother sole legal and sole physical custody of her child.

I've not only worked on matters alongside Mr. Scott, I've also observed him working in the community and am aware of his strong reputation. He is dedicated, smart, and knows when to be a fighter and when it is best to seek a good resolution. When my clients ask me for a good family law attorney, Mr. Scott is at the top of my very short list. I strongly endorse Mr. Scott.
