Practice areas
For over two decades, my passion has been defending the rights of my clients. My goal with every single client is to help them move forward with their lives as quickly as possible with the best possible outcome.
My practice focuses on the areas of Criminal Defense and College Disciplinary Law. 
 
• Criminal Defense
With integrity, honesty and over 20 years of experience, I work tirelessly to defend clients in state and federal prosecutions throughout Long Island and New York City. I personally handle every step in the process, from meeting with the client and explaining all possible and probable outcomes, evaluating the strength of the case, and exploring every possible defense, to negotiation with the prosecutor and conducting hearings and trials.

• College Disciplinary Law
When a student is accused of a college disciplinary violation it can be an overwhelming experience.  It is possible that one mistake, one error in judgment or one false accusation could have ramifications that will live on forever.
 
When retained, I work to defend, and give guidance to students charged with violating their schools code of conduct. I determine the particular schools procedures, what protections my client is entitled to, then create and implement a defense strategy.

In addition to the above, I also host a weekly law practice management podcast, "Reboot Your Law Practice." Available on .

Excellent attorney
I just wanted to leave a quick review here because I picked Scott because of the reviews on this website he is not only a good attorney but a good person I hired him because of a nonsense arrest in which I received an appearance ticket for, and when I needed to go get fingerprinted I was apprehensive and afraid to go on my own so Scott came with me which is something I'm sure most attorneys would not do so if you need not only a good attorney but a decent human being you can't go wrong with him. I appreciate the hand holding throughout this whole experience because I'd be lost.

An excellent lawyer you can count on
Our son was falsely accused of Title IX violations at college. His future was at stake. We knew we needed to hire the right lawyer to defend him. We hired Scott and not only did he defend and advise him, but we won the case and all charges were dropped! The cost of hiring him was an excellent investment. Scott was honest, professional, extremely knowledgeable and the right man for the job. He made my son comfortable throughout the terrifying experience. Highly recommend him.

Amazing Lawyer
After talking to many attorneys that were judgmental and left me anxious and worried. I finally spoke with Scott Limmer and he was so supportive, and did not judge the situation not one bit. He alleviated all my anxieties about it. He is reliable he answers back expeditiously and helps you get your case dealt with as soon as possible. In my case I went from calling lawyers to actually seeing court in a matter of 1 day. He cares about his clients and cares to alleviate their fears about the charge and process. He’s so honest he actually told me he wouldn’t want to take my case since a regular legal aid could take the case and there’s nothing to worry about and he wouldn’t want me to spend money getting something this simple resolved . He even explained what the legal aid would say and do along with the entire process. He advised me even though I was not his client and was giving me advice for another attorney. I immediately hired him ON THE SPOT and he gave me a discount since he felt it still unfair to take my money. I never spoke with a lawyer that actually looks out for your well being. I could’ve cried and I did. He understands that mistakes happen but also understands the unfairness of harsh punishments. The day of court I actually found out the case was already closed. And even though we spent 2 days prepping and talking over the phone the morning of he refunded me all of the money spent for his fee. He’s an angel and a godsent. He also understands the legal system extremely well and can explain it in layman terms which was a relief after talking to other lawyers that were rude, seemed almost annoyed to converse, were negative about the outcome, judgmental, and overpriced. Scott Limmer is the most amazing lawyer that actually cares about his clients and I would hire him again in a second if I ever got into any trouble. You should too!

Best legal defense
I am a Long Island college student who was wrongly accused amongst others for academic dishonesty based on a professor’s assumptions. When I was first notified of the false accusation, I was surprised and extremely nervous of how this could impact my future as I have had no other disciplinary issues in my academic career. The steps leading up to the hearing which included the appeal process was misleading and confusing. I researched lawyers and was fortunate to find Scott Limmer who is an excellent academic disciplinary attorney. Scott was an amazing attorney who made me feel comfortable throughout this difficult process. He was always available to answer any questions I had and offered expert legal advice every step of the way. At first the school told me that I was not able to have an attorney present at the hearing. Fortunately, that was not the case as in the end Scott Limmer was able to attend my hearing with me after all. He prepared me extensively for the hearing, going over the evidence and arguments for weeks prior to the hearing date. This accusation could have damaged not only my GPA but also my integrity and reputation. I am so grateful that I had Scott Limmer as my attorney and I would highly recommend him. With his legal guidance, I was fortunate to receive a favorable outcome as I was found not responsible for academic dishonesty and I received my final grade for the class with no penalty.

Man of his word
Never in a million years did I imagine having to need a Lawyer for anyone in my family. I was a worried parent for her child and Scott gave me the assurance I needed and the result was exactly as promised. He gave me the attention I needed and responded quickly to every call or text. Scott Limmer actually cares about his clients and their future. I will be forever grateful.

Excellent work
I reached out to Scott after a police officer contacted my employer. Scott kept an open line of contact with me the entire time and was very responsive throughout the entire case. I was worried that my case could have a negative affect on my employment situation and freedom. Scott kept my mind at ease and ensured we would not plea guilty and rightfully so. By the end of my case, I was not convicted with any crimes. I could not have asked for a better lawyer experience.

Highly recommend
From first contact, Scott was approachable, very responsive and engaged, professional, and compassionate. He took time to talk through every concern and explained the process thoroughly, gave best and worst case scenarios and didn’t not over promise. In fact he under-promised and over-delivered. My family will forever be thankful we choose Scott to represent us. He is a down to earth, smart, highly capable professional.

High school issue
I had a very big issue with my 14 year old son being harshly punished by his school district for something he did not do. I consulted over the phone with 6 lawyers who all basically told me that I was at the mercy of the district. I refused to accept that and I’m glad that I didn’t because as soon as I spoke with Scott Limmer I knew he was the lawyer I needed. He immediately agreed that this was not acceptable and I could hear in his voice that he was outraged by what I was telling him. We showed up for a disciplinary hearing and after Scott spoke with the schools attorney they opted to cancel the meeting immediately and let my son return to school. Scott was able to get this incident removed off my sons record as well by investigating and outlining exactly what they did wrong in an appeal to the superintendent. Scott is professional and knows his stuff. He advocated for my son and was not afraid to go up against a school district as many other attorneys I spoke to were. I would highly recommend him .

Excellent Attorney
Scott Limmer defended our son in Family Court and helped us to get the best possible outcome we could have hoped for. This was an incredibly emotional and scary time for our family, but working with Scott was a great experience. Scott is knowledgeable, responsive, professional, and well connected within the system. He talked to us in everyday language, prepared us for what to expect before each appearance, helped us to understand all the potential outcomes, and ultimately, helped us get the best outcome in the end. He also worked with our school district when they were being unreasonable, and helped us to negotiate acceptable terms that were appropriate for the situation. I highly recommend Scott Limmer as a defense attorney.

He was able to convince my school not to have a disciplinary hearing against me. If someone made false allegations against you, he would do a phenomenal job.

Excellent lawyer
I am a student who was falsely accused of a Title IX offense. At first, I thought I could handle the school’s procedures by myself without an attorney, but things started getting complicated. At that point, I knew I needed professional help. Even though I was falsely accused, the procedure needs an expert to navigate through the school’s rules. Scott has confidence due to his experience in Title IX cases in other universities who all have different rules and procedures regarding Title IX. He is committed to his clients. He went to the school several times without me and knew every detail of my case. Scott was always available to answer my calls and text messages. He gave 110% into my preparation and defense hearing, and met with me several times to go over any questions and concerns my family and I had. He would listen to everyone’s thoughts and told us the right way to go about my case. As a student, I would highly recommend Scott for representation in any kind of defense and/or Title IX cases. I can not thank Scott Limmer enough for agreeing to represent me. Being in a situation like I was in was very stressful, but he pointed my family and I in the right direction for how to go about my incident. It was my pleasure writing this review.

Look no further, Scott is the Best Attorney one can ever hire!
Scott is very knowledgeable and was extremely helpful and understanding throughout the entire process . He was very informative and when I was a nervous wreck and many times in the beginning felt sick to my stomach he assured me that I would be ok. Scott made me feel safe and confident the whole way through because he was so confident with my case. All I had to do was show up and he did the rest. Scott is very dependable and easy to talk to. Gets straight to the point as well. I would definitely recommend his services. I can't thank him enough.

Mr. Limmer provided advice, guidance, and written documents to help us with a college matter for my son. His documents were extremely professional, well-written, and thoroughly researched which resulted in a very successful outcome. Mr. Limmer is very knowledgeable and is able to easily explain complicated issues. I highly recommend him and I will hire him again should another matter arise.

Scott is your guy
I am grateful for everything that Scott has done for me. If you are looking for a lawyer look no further. Scott is a world class person, he is kind, genuine, empathetic, amazing, just a stand out guy. Scott went above and beyond for me, he did everything in his power to help me. He made me feel like I was his only case he was dealing with because that's how hands on he is. He always made sure I was ok, and he did a kick ass job at preparing everything for my trial. And because of him I have my life back and it's intact. I was innocent from the beginning but if I did not have Scott, I do not think I would have won. He is one of the smartest people I have ever met. He thinks 10 to 20 steps ahead in any scenario. There isn't one thing bad I have to say about this man. To all those out there who need representation, Scott is your guy. I am thankful everyday that I had him in my corner, and you would be smart and lucky to have him. The one thing that means more than anything to me is that he ACTUALLY cares. Not many people are like that anymore, and he is amazing. He cared about me when he didn't have to, he just had a job to do. To have a lawyer who actually cares about their client and doesn't see them as their next pay check, pick Scott. I cannot stress how amazing of a lawyer and person he is, he will fight tooth and nail for you because he cares about every person he meets.
