Our "go to" Guy
We hired Scott after our attorney had a conflict and couldn't represent us. Scott is now our lead attorney. Did a wonderful job for us in regulatory hearings

Honest, Fair and Responsive
I hired Scott to help protect my elderly mother's tenant rights. Scott undertook the challenge, talked to the landlord, met with my mom in her rehab facility and showed compassion and concern for her situation. He was professional, fair and cost conscious. His representation ensured that my mother's rights were protected and her life was not disrupted. He achieved the desired results. I am eternally grateful for Scott's help and highly recommend him. You can't go wrong.
