Thorough and Thoughtful
Scott helped guide me through the review of my divorce settlement. He provided great feedback along the way and thoroughly reviewed the document to be sure I was being treated fairly. I really appreciated his attention to detail giving me confidence in my outcome.

Knowledgeable, easily reachable, reliable, simply the right lawyer
Scott knows what he is doing. Knowledgeable, willing to go the extra mile, very reliable. He can explain complex law lingo in layman's terms. It is no fun to go through a divorce, but Scott makes me hope there is light at the end of the tunnel. It is a pleasure to be his client.

Thoughtful and thorough consultation
Contacted Mr. Levine to get assistance with a child custody agreement. Early on in our phone call it became clear on that i would not be able to retain him as my attorney due to travel restrictions . He still took over an hour of his time to help walk me through all of the potential outcomes of my situation and the process involved in each scenario. A true professional, thank you for your help!

Knowledgeable and Thorough
Scott was a steady hand when I needed someone to get me through an unexpectedly rough divorce. He was very knowledgeable about the system and the law. He also knew when things were important to push and when I should calm down and let things go, and told me so. I appreciate all his guidance and support and would recommend him to anyone going through a tough time or even if there is a situation that just needs mediated.

Most Attentive
Scott Levine is hands down the most attentive custody lawyer I have ever spoken to. He gave me over an hour of his time to discuss the options in my case. He was knowledgeable and had a lot of information to share. It was refreshing to find a family lawyer that really cares about helping clients.

Your Search For A Divorce Attorney Stops Here
I was truly impressed about how thorough and concise Attorney Levine was during the consultation. He is the one stop shop for all your divorce matters. The highlight of my experience with him was how he took the time to fully understand my story in order to provide tailored and creative strategies for my case. Attorney Levine comes with my strongest recommendations.

Highly Recommended
Mr. Levine is incredibly knowledgeable regarding family law. Throughout a difficult and lengthy divorce process (for reasons out of his control) he was continually dedicated, patient, and supportive, and my confidence in his representation never wavered. I can't recommend Mr. Levine highly enough.

My Story
My experience with Scott Levine was great. My case was a long one however was one we fought to the end..and won. I would recommend him as an attorney to anyone. He works hard for his client . He stays on top of the situation. He is fair and caring. I want to take this time and say Thank You Scott.. For all your hard work. This part of my life was over for years. It just had to be closed legally. And he has done that for me. Thank you. From myself and my family.

Legal Genius
From the moment I spoke with Scott he calmed my anxieties and brought me to a full understanding of how my case was to proceed. He covered every aspect with detail and was very professional. He was wise and confident through out the case which lead to an outcome of which I couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend him and will continue to use his services.

Thorough and effective
I hired Scott to defend a PFA and couldn't have been happier with his work. He took time to listen to my case in detail, explain potential outcomes, and he researched similar PFA cases to better understand the situation. He negotiated a favorable consent order with the other party and we ultimately didn't have to go to trial. Absolutely would hire him again for the peace of mind during an extremely stressful situation.

Scott is representing me in all aspects of my separation and divorce. He was able to secure an extended protection from abuse order. He has compassion for his clients. Scott understands that timely communication is extremely important in not only reassuring his clients but also being very effective in getting results. My family and I have been extremely impressed in his professionalism and thorough knowledge of the law. His qualifications and performance speak for themselves and I highly recommend Scott Levine as an attorney.
