I recently received my E-2 visa for my start-up consulting business in US. Ian and his firm provided the crucial help in the success. Ian made his services different from many other agents in the market. First of all, he is very approachable which was the first impression I got when I made my first call to his company. Second, he as well as his colleagues are very familiar with the true requirements about E-2 visa. I carefully talked to at least 5 different firms including a few hr long consultations before I get connected with Ian. Their knowledge on E-2 visa really helped me a lot during the entire preparation process. Thirdly, they are very serious about their work and carefully reviewed every single piece of document I sent to them. Overall, I was very happy about the excellent services provided and would fully recommend Scott Legal to any of my friend who might be interested in the E-2 visa down to the road.

Im not only thankful for the job provided to myself and my family but also impressed about Ian's team.
I applied for an E-2 Visa to the US. I have Swiss and Argentinian nationalities.
Ian was always very positive and supportive during the whole process.
I like when people are responsive. Ian and his team are incredible, you get a response no matter the question in no time! This is something admiring about them since you get an overall support no matter what.
Ian and his team are always available. I had the pleasure of working remotely with Angela and Kelly. Both gave me excellent services.
I would definitely recommend Ian and his team if you are planning to apply for a Visa to the US.

As a Canadian, I hired Esq. Scott for my E-2 visa application, as well as my company entity setup and the writing of my business plan. Him and his did a wonderful job putting each and every detail together, especially for my visa application, and I felt very well prepared going in to the interview with the Consulate. I had a very well organized application and solid supporting documents for everything, and ultimately my application was approved. I must say that I saw many business owners go in to the interview at the consulate that day and I witnessed first hand the importance of being thoroughly prepared, and I was thankful I had decided to have a professional put together the application for me.
I was also extremely pleased by how quickly I would receive a reply every time I emailed a question or voiced a concern, and although most of our interaction took place via email (as per my request), we set up several phone meetings throughout the application process to discuss important decisions, and also to prepare me for the consulate interview.
I have nothing but positive things to say about Esq. Scott and his team and I warmly recommend them to anyone seeking legal assistance with immigration.

My wife and I are Canadian citizens living in Texas and we love it here!!! We were sent here on an L1 work visa through her Canadian company in 2011 when they decided to open an office just north of Dallas. We kept extending the L1 visa to its' maximum of 5 years which came to a conclusion just a few weeks ago. Back in the spring, we contacted Mr. Scott for a consultation to find out what we needed to do to open our own business and apply for an E-2 visa. Mr. Scott and his team were fabulous and hired shortly after the initial consultation and held our hands all the way through to our approval on August 5th. I can't believe that we were able to make this happen and both my wife and I are ecstatic that we've been approved for a full 5 years and look for to see where our business takes us!!! Ian, Kelly and Angela.....Thanks again for everything.....We could not have done this without you!!!

Ian and his associate Angela helped me with my E2. It was a joy working with them. Both of them are down to earth and were easy to work with.
The biggest different between Ian and few lawyers I consulted before was, unlike some other lawyers, when I asked a question, Ian would give me a straight answer. No dancing around, just very clear, helpful, to the point, straight answers. He also has a very calm demeanor that can always put your mind at ease. Angela was great at getting all the documents ready. All these were extremely helpful during this document intensive and somewhat nerve wracking process.
Thank you Ian and Angela.

Ian and his team did an excellent job in guiding me and preparing for my E-2 visa application. I felt very confident with Ian's and his team's experience and professionalism in E-2 and other immigration matters. They have been very responsive to all my questions and requests thru out. The entire application process went very smooth for me.
I also needed corporate counseling for a number of other matters not related to visa application, and Ian has provided an excellent service and many invaluable legal advises.

Ian was a great help with clarifying the visa process for a professional Canadian engineer pursuing work in the U.S.
My case started with an job application complication with a well renowned entertainment company in the U.S . Essentially, I had went threw the interview process, was chosen for the job, but then was disqualified because I could not produce work authorization.
I did some research and learned of the TN visa. It is a simple visa made available to citizens of Canada and Mexico. Upon informing the HR department that this visa was an inexpensive, simple, streamlined work visa option, they dismissed it on the grounds that I would still need to be sponsored by their company.
Weeks later, I stumbled upon Ian's website. He explained that the TN visa did not require sponsorship from the employer. I called him to confirm this information. He was friendly and confirmed that this visa should have satisfied my employers needs.
The engineer that had wanted to hire me wanted some information to bring to his HR department. That was when I had first got in contact with Ian
Ian then went a step further by volunteering to write a letter to my would-have-been employer, dispelling the conception that the TN visa needs sponsorship. My potential employer now has a leg to stand on as he brings this issue to the HR department, which largely seems to be unaware of the TN visa.
Thanks to Ian for helping me considerably and bringing some closure to this experience. Thank you

This is a glowing review for Mr Ian Scott. He is a dedicated, honest and very knowledgeable attorney. Mr Scott responded promptly to my inquiries and requests in regard to my immigration case, and his team and him worked quickly to deliver results for me.
I felt confident and trusted when I was working with Mr Scott on my case, and I would certainly turn to his firm again.

I was able to consult with Ian when my firm sponsored me for a green card. While my employer hired a different immigration firm, it was important for me to be able to double-check some of the advice I was receiving because I was not paying the firm, therefore I was afraid my interests may come secondary to that of my employer, and because, even though I am myself a lawyer, the green card application process is very complicated.
For example, I once called Ian because I believed the immigration firm had filed a document late and, as a result, I would need to leave the country immediately. The explanations I received from the firm seemed contradictory. Only when Ian walked me through the issue was I reassured.
Anyone who has been part of the U.S. immigration process knows that it is byzantium so having someone who not only has a great grasp of the law, but who can explain it clearly and calmly is very important. Now that I have my green card, I am very happy that I had Ian in my corner and would definitely recommend you hire him!
