Confidence
Mr. Gleason is currently handling 2 cases of mine and has done and continues to do a stellar job. Some people obviously confuse cockiness with confidence, a quality imperative when choosing an attorney, and one Mr. Gleason excels at

Caveat Emptor
This review has been a long time coming. I felt I had to wait until it longer mattered to my profession. It was in fact why I went to Scott Gleason in the first place - because I was concerned that I might lose my security clearance due to a traffic stop in which the officer detected that I had imbibed in marijuana. This occurred back in 2009 in New Hampshire. Scott impressed upon me that I indeed had something to fear - calling NH "a law and order state." After an impressive sales pitch in his office, he announced that his fee for my case was $4,500. I think he could sense my sticker shock. He assured me that he would fight for me with everything at his disposal. So - feeling reassured that he could help salvage my career, I went on with life until my court date the following spring. He wasn't at the court house. Instead he sent his brother - also an attorney. After his brother was briefed on my case, he met with the judge and petitioned for a reduction from misdemeanor to violation - the latter not resulting in a blemish on my record. I'm grateful for the legal action that helped me avoid any criminal documentation. But I highly doubt that the 20 minutes of mundane lawyering (my perception of course) that Scott's brother provided warranted the price tag. If I were to give Scott the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he charged me that - not only because he thought I could afford it - but also because it would allow him to take it easier on those who were desperate for his services but were too impoverished to afford it. That's my idealistic side speaking. Realistically I see it as a good old-fashioned money grab. Buyer beware!

Terrible liar
This lawyer is a liar and takes clients money. I hired him for a case he told me he will dismiss my case with all the proofs that i presented to him. Before my first court day he told me he would dismiss all charges that they had no validation when the court day arrived he goes in and tells the judge to give him another court day because he was not prepared for the case. The following court day he did not appeared. Never presented himself statitng he had another case and sent his collegue that had no clue of my case. At the end of the trial he declared me guilty which he made a deal with the DA without my knowledge

Terrible
I had a very terrible experience with him. it was a very simple legal matter. Everyone told me he was wonderful. He was never in court when we were scheduled to be there, and when the day of the trial finally came he went into court completely unprepared, he did a terrible job with the witness, didn't introduce any exhibits, and we lost. This was something that I also did not need to go to court over. It was a very big waste of money for me, and his bulk pricing is extremely padded. Please shop around, he is riding on a reputation that he does not live up to, and his bedside manner is atrocious. His foul and rude language is not something that I am accustomed to. There is truly much better. Trust me when i tell you, you are taking a chance by working with him. The man in the office and consult, is not the man in the courtroom. How disappointing.

Arrogant
I used this lawyer and he convinced me to take a plea deal. Everything this man told me was untrue and the exact opposite of what he expected to happen, happened every time we appeared in court. This lawyer does not do his homework, he relies solely on his relationships with prosecutors to let his clients off with a light sentence as long as they plead guilty and not effect the ADAs conviction rate. This man's practice is corrupt and he contributed to me losing years of my life.

Cocky, lousy attorney
Mr. Gleason recently handled my case with very misplaced bravado, often lowering his eyeglasses when interrogating a witness as if, in a sensationalistic manner, to place people in a false light. He also taunted his opponents for needless show to attempt to impress his female clients, especially in depositions where a judge couldn't see his antics. All of that, yet in the end and despite his frivolity, he lost a needlessly expensive, time consuming case.
