This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Scott Wiss is an amazing lawyer!
Scott Wiss superbly represented me in a rear end car accident case this year and with much persistence he won me the maximum on the policy. He also represented me in a Slip and Fall case in 2012, I received a six figure settlement. It was a pleasure to have Scott represent me. I always felt he would get the best possible settlement. Being permanently disabled was a real financial stress. Scott's persistence and professionalism enabled me to focus on my medical treatment and not stress or worry about the outcome of the case. I am so grateful that our families' real estate/estate lawyer referred me to Scott. Both cases were settled through arbitration which saved me the physical and emotional stress of sitting in court. I never needed to call Scott and worry about the outcome of the cases. I always felt we were on the same team and Scott was a star quarterback!

Curtious and professional.
I was kept up with what was going on with my case at all times, I didn't have to keep asking. Mr. Wiss provided me with honest answers to all of my questions. He did not promise me things that he could not deliver. Over all the assistance I received from Mr. Wiss and his staff were very kind and helpful.
