    If you're looking for a no nonsense, experienced lawyer, Scott's your guy.

    Scott Cliff was responsive, professional, and knowledgeable throughout the entire time we worked together. My case was very emotional for me, but Mr. Cliff put me at ease with his many years of experience and professionalism. I appreciated his honesty most of all. He always told me what was strong and what was weak about my case and came up with an excellent strategy that resulted in a favorable outcome. I'd recommend him to anybody who has an employment issue.

    Excellent Legal Advice - Supportive style

    Mr. Cliff provided excellent legal advice to me when I was placed in a compromising situation with a former employer. I appreciated how thoughtful and objective his advice was, and he helped me understand the employer perspective while explaining my rights. He is also very pleasant and supportive to work with. His rate seemed fine, similar to a few other attorneys I researched, and the invoice was lower than I expected for the thorough advice he gave. I think he is a tremendous bargain for dependable legal advice, and I will not hesitate to recommend him to either an employer or employee in a difficult situation.

    Dropped me with no time to find a new attorney!

    I had been working with Mr. Cliff for months on a claim against my employer. On Mr. Cliff's advice I quit my job (and therefore gave up union representation). After Mr. Cliff filed a tort claim, on my behalf, he said he had hoped my employer would settle out of court and when they didn't he decided he didn't have time to finish my case leaving me about 8 weeks to find a new attorney and file suit because of the deadline he created filing the tort claim. I have contacted about 20 attorneys now, they all say they don't have the kind of time available to pick up the case last minute and that what Mr. Cliff did is not "normal". I'm going to lose all my rights because of the path that Mr. Cliff led me down. I would keep shopping, if I were you. You don't want to be left hanging like I am.

    Scott T Cliff’s response: “I cannot reveal privileged attorney-client communications, so my response here is based on my practices and policies from which I have not deviated. First, it grieves me that even a single client, out of hundreds, feels I failed her by not pursuing a case. Suffice it to say, however, that there are many factors I must consider in deciding whether to pursue a case into litigation, including whether my case load will permit me to spend the amount of time a case is likely to require. In many cases, I may assist a client in protecting his or her rights to pursue claims against a public body by serving a Tort Claims Notice. Doing so is not the same as filing a claim or lawsuit; it simply preserves the right to do so before it is lost. I did so at no charge in this case. I have never advised a client to quit a job. To the contrary, I make a point of ensuring that clients understand the extra burden of proof in proving "constructive discharge" (i.e. the point at which no reasonable person would feel they have any option but to quit). When a client and the client's medical providers conclude that point has been reached due to emotional and physical stress, it is my job simply to evaluate the probable strength of the constructive discharge element of a claim and provide that assessment; the client decides whether he or she can hang in there a little longer or is at the point of having to quit. I am also a strong believer that any employee represented by a union should make full use of the protections and procedures afforded by their union and their collective bargaining agreement's grievance process. I wish this person all the best despite some obvious misunderstandings and hurt feelings.”

    A Caring, Excellent Support for difficult times

    Scott Cliff was kind, caring and did an excellent job advising me of my options, and helping me to choose my next steps during the process. He listened so well, asked important questions and truly supported me to move through some really tough times. I am so grateful.

    Excellent service from an excellent lawyer!

    Hands down, Mr. Cliff's experience and personable style kept me at ease and confident in the decisions made for my case. He let me know step by step what was being done and why and allowed me to determine what was best for me based on all of the information. He kept aware of the pros, as well as the cons of each and every part of the process and even gave me extra information that was relevent to the other party. He is a great strategizer and drew from past cases like mine to help guide his judgements as well as mine.

    Very responsive and efficient

    Mr. Cliff assisted me on 2 occasions dealing with the same employment issue. The issue required a quick response and Mr. Cliff was responsive and timely in his advice and paperwork. I also felt that he listened and understood the issue and cared about the outcome.

    Adept, Responsive and Fair

    Under trying circumstances, not instigated by myself, Scott was invaluable and negotiated a significant settlement in my favor. When seeking legal counsel FAIR and INTEGRITY are important qualifiers and rest assured, this is what you'll get from Mr. Cliff-along with excellent legal knowledge of tactics and strategy.

    Responsible & Trustworthy Leadership-A Refreshing Spirit

    In our hour of desperation Scott was easy for us to contact and prompt to respond with appropriate actions. It's a comfort knowing he's there for us and clearly communicates available options.
