Very dedicated, "Matter-of-facts" Lawyer!
Attorney Ron Scott is an excellent lawyer. He represented me (pro-Bono) in a divorce lawsuit that was embroiled in a tedious custody & child support gridlock, with international jurisdiction complications. In all, and throughout the unnecessary 2.5 years lengthiness that included lawsuits in family courts and the higher court of Appeal, he provided top notch representation by brilliantly assessing facts and impeccably arguing to achieve victory, in multiple motions and hearings. His negotiation skills are stellar and he works very well with the different aspects of the entire ordeal including court administration, the bench and interface civil and public legal system reps (e.g. GAL, Family Relations, Child Support Bureau). I gladly recommend Attorney Ron Scott to anyone looking for a lawyer and hoping to achieve victory in family related lawsuits.

Excellent all around
Attorney Scott first represented me in 2009 in a divorce and did a thorough and professional job. He has since represented me on a number of other legal matters with my ex wife, and each time, he has impressed me with his compassion, his responsiveness, his legal savvy, and his legal knowledge and preparedness. Each time he took difficult and tense moments, and simplified and eased them so that we were able to arrive at favorable outcomes. I would recommend him without hesitation, and I would hire him again if the need ever arose.

HIGHLY Recommend Attorney Scott - Very Responsive , Resourceful, and Caring
I had an out of state custody case but needed clarification and a legal document from a CT judge regarding jurisdiction. I called on Attorney Ron Scott. He took my call right away, worked miracles to get exactly what I needed and in record time! It might have been a small request compared to the large cases he handles but his timely facilitation of the legal paperwork was far from small. I wasn't going to move forward without it. I was very impressed that he even took my call, returned all my calls quickly and expeditiously handled my requests! He made no distinction between a very small client and one who would bring in a huge case for the firm. I can't give him enough praise at how impressed I was.
