From my first phone consultation where I explained my rather complex case, I felt right at ease with Scott. He was attentive and clearly able to sift through my complicated legal issues in order to take actions to help me. Scott outlined a plan and kept a clear and tight communication with me throughout our case. I was always in the loop and whenever I emailed or phoned him, Scott always answered me in a timely, efficient and clear manner.
I found Scott to be honest, kind, sincere and with good will. He possesses a strong work ethic. He is intelligent, warm, knowledgeable and friendly and when he said he would do something, he did it! I hold Scott J Summer in my highest esteem and I highly recommend him. It was both an honor and a privilege to have him represent me and I will use him again in a heartbeat should the need arise!

I worked with Scott on an unusual real estate transaction. Scott not only gave me all of the information I needed at each step, but also provided sage council and was both a friendly ear and fierce advocate.
Throughout our two-month long dealings, Scott was in constant contact with me about the progress and always took the time to explain the process to me and answer my questions. At times when it was important to relay the urgency and seriousness of a situation, Scott was exemplary and was successful at getting the other parties to act.
I have had many business and personal dealings with various lawyers and I can say with confidence that Scott sets the benchmark! He is hands-down the best!
I have and will continue to strongly recommend Scott.

It has been my privilege to get to know Scott over a number of years as a fellow member of the NORML Legal Defense Committee. He is very helpful to fellow members and has a nationwide reputation for providing his clients with excellent representation. I endorse this lawyer.
