"Hammer and Hope"
I made the right decision to have Attorney Scott Camassar represent me for my medical malpractice case. He did an OUTstanding job. He really took the time to learn all of the details of my case. It was a very long process and he always kept me informed with the status. His professionalism, dedication, and understanding are unmatched. I felt extremely comfortable with him. He was knowledgeable, honest, compassionate, and supportive. He believed in me and in my claim and I felt that he went above and beyond with persistence and diligence to portray that. I trusted him completely to tell the facts of my case. He was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anyone! If you want the job done thoroughly and with commitment you will get that from Attorney Camassar.

Grateful and Appreciative
I hired Attorney Camassar to assist me in filing an out of state claim regarding an automobile accident. Mr. Camassar listened to all of my concerns and handled the case efficiently. Although it was a small claim, he worked hard to get me the largest sum possible. I would highly recommend Attorney Camassar to those needing a lawyer.

Grateful and Relieved
Attorney Camassar helped us through one of the most difficult times in our lives. We really didn't know what to expect after filing a lawsuit against a national company following an accident when one of its delivery drivers rear-ended me, causing a life-changing injury. Scott was well-prepared and ably handled our case through all the stages of Federal Court to a successful outcome.

Car accident injury
Scott is a great lawyer who always kept me up to date on information pertaining to the case. He always answered any questions that I had and got me a great settlement.

Excellent Personal Injury Lawyer
Scott was a great lawyer for me. Another lawyer referred me to him after I was injured in a car accident. I was a student at the time and was living out of state at the time the suit started. Scott and his firm made it easy for me and kept me informed every step of the way. He worked hard on my case and I was very pleased with the settlement.

Excellent Attorney
Scott is an excellent attorney who is very adept in the law and litigation. He represented me in the very sensitive matter of neglect and wrongful death. Not only was his representation and professionalism of the highest standard, but his compassion, kindness and genuine concern made me feel that I was represented by a true advocate for justice and someone who really cared. Scott is a person of great integrity who worked diligently to prepare a case which was brought to settlement through successful mediation. Scott’s willingness to listen and his ability to provide sage counsel made working through a very trying experience far less difficult. I highly recommend him as a very skilled and honest lawyer with great dedication to both his clients and his profession.

Experienced, Intelligent, and Thorough Professional
I have personally experienced Scott's organization, preparedness, and extensive knowledge and application of the law in order to ensure that several severely injured individuals obtained the justice that insurance carriers wrongfully and vigorously denied. His carefull attention to each case, as well as his zealous abililty to successfully manage significant matters through litigation have achieved great results for victims. Scott is one of the most professional, courteous, and trustworthy attorneys that I have ever met, and his honor in representing injured individuals make any person fortunate to have his legal counsel.

my personal injury lawsuit
Scott was great through my whole personal injury case. Unfortunately the court system dragged out my case for a long time but Scott kept me informed and made it pretty painless on me end. I definitely recommend him to anyone in the future!
