Scott Kalkwarf handled my mothers probate case and paid himself thousands of dollars for virtually doing nothing but stalling the settlement. He was not truthful or trustworthy nor did he act in good faith. He protected the interest of the personal representative only not the estate and all heirs involved. I ended up paying him $4,000 to work against me and that cost me thousands more. I would sincerely not recommend this attorney to anyone.
My husband and I found Scott to be knowledgable, concise and effective, especially in his successful discerning of the important points and facts of our case and logical filtering out of those points that were superfluous. Scott does not overreact in his communications to the opposing party, instead tempering his tone and cadence with appropriate respect, yet firmness.
We found Scott to possess more than adequate immediate knowledge integral to addressing our particular issues, in addition to exhibiting the humbleness and willingness needed to pursue further research to validate his initial impressions.
Most importantly to us, because, in our case, we wished to ensure that the opposing party was treated with respect and dignity in court and in communications, despite our disagreements, we chose Scott because of the values and ethics we had observed in his treatment of us. This, to us, indicated that he would not likely be the type of attorney to spew baseless arguments in court and at the other party, who is a neighbor, but that he would, hopefully, rely on the truth to tell our case through detailed, documented presenting of the facts, maintaing what we believe to be ethical behavior and effectively championing our cause.
We have a great deal of faith in Scott and continue to use him as our attorney.
