Excellent Service for my Small Business
My company is brand new and we're trying to take care of some of the essentials to allow us to operate. In doing so, we got into contact with Jordan after speaking with several lawyers about assisting us with a merchant business agreement. Jordan was responsive, honest and very knowledgeable about what we were trying to accomplish and let us know up front what to expect. Given our limited budget, he worked with us to minimize the costs and complete the project as quickly as possible. I will definitely reach out to Jordan for any legal-related issues for my business moving forward.

Courteous, prompt service - a pleasure to work with!
As a professional photographer, I was searching for a trustworthy lawyer that could go over my legal documents and make sure I was protected. I love photography - not law - so I wanted to leave it to a professional that had my interests in mind. I didn't want to leave myself exposed, so I asked around for a recommendation. Mr. Scott and his team came highly recommended. My impressions are nothing but positive from our first interactions. He gave me a quote that I was very comfortable with. He was very responsive (as was his team) with any inquiries or follow up questions I had. He also assured me that he would never hit me with some crazy fees that I wasn't prepared for. This was very important to me, this transparency, because as an entrepreneur with an income stream that isn't necessarily steady day to day, I wanted to know ahead of time what I was getting into. With Mr. Scott & his team I felt comfortable that he wasn't going to add hidden fees. He was very upfront in letting me know that he wanted to establish a lasting relationship and not just out for earning a quick buck. He was also very quick to respond to any of my questions. In my line of business, a quick turnaround is important or you could potentially lose a client. I have referred him to another photographer after my dealings with him. I look forward to continue using Scott & his team for my future dealings. Thanks Mr. Scott & Ms. Lynn.

Best Experience and Best Outcome from the Best Representation!
It is with great pleasure that we write this review about Jordan Scott! Jordan represented us in a legal dispute with a former landlord and, from the first phone call until the successful resolution in housing court, he provided comprehensive support, guidance and action. He was reassuring, informative and articulate. He was quick to respond to any questions from us or inquiries from the other party, and we never felt a moment of worry about how our case was being managed. Never having been through a legal dispute of this kind, we had endless questions and concerns and Jordan addressed everything in a straight-forward, easy-to-understand manner. His knowledge and experience with the law, not to mention his patience and humor, allowed him to translate all of the legal explanations and processes so that we could easily understand what was happening at each stage. Being involved in this legal dispute was one of the more stressful experiences that we've encountered, and being represented by Jordan allowed us to let go and continue with our daily lives, knowing that we were well represented and that he was personally invested in us as individuals and in the outcome of our case. We highly recommend Jordan Scott!

Competent, ethical, and compassionate
I had a harrowing issue with a former employer of mine that was failing to provide accommodations or honor my FMLA request. I spoke with several other attorneys via telephone who gave me awful advice that was only in their best interest (for example, one said, "I can't save your job, but I can get you severance"). I was referred to Mr. Scott and was exceptionally pleased - he truly conducted his actions in a manner that behooved me, the client. He worked to preserve my job, providing some 'muscle' behind my bargaining while still remaining professional and not overly aggressive. He never left me in the dark and always presented me with options from which to choose before making decisions. He presented options in an unbiased manner, giving me the pros/cons to each. His knowledge of the ins and outs of employment law was very helpful. It was clear to me that he practices law for the correct reasons, and although my case didn't fatten his wallet much, he performed expediently and competently.

Superb Attorney
Jordan Scott, and his partner, Chris Desmon have served as our "de facto counsel" for the past 4 years. Initially, I selected Jordan as he had the proper background: Boston University, GW etc. and he showed a strong understanding of what our business needed. After years of work, talking with him almost weekly and emailing nearly daily, here are the facts: - Jordan Scott is responsive - emails are returned within a day, and usually an hour - Jordan is thorough - he not only give feedback based on questions asked but will also research the topic for his general cognizance and provide alternative views without wasting time and ensuring the best legal advice is followed. - Jordan, Chris, and their team are versatile - we run a medical practice consulting company, a medical practice, a pharmaceutical sales company, and a web development and SEO company. The breadth of corporate law understanding necessary to master is large. Jordan truly gets it and his advice is spot-on. He has led us through a frivolous lawsuit, helping to settle it amicably at a low cost, has developed documents, exceptional non-solicitation and non-compete agreements, 65 page contracts for long-term management, as well as short agreements between businesses and partners. Jordan is down to earth as well with a warm demeanor and good sense of humor. I refer essentially everybody in need of a good attorney to him. He even liases with my wife who is an employment defense attorney in another state and she says he is superb. In a world filled with the mediocre lawyers who I have unfortunately retained, make a good decision and call Jordan Scott today.

J. Jordan Scott
I have been working with Jordan and his law firm for my business for some time now and have never had any problems. He is very quick to return a call or email and I never need to question his integrity or honesty in his response. I am very happy with the relationship we currently have and look forward to years of doing business with him and his firm.
