Best attorney that I have worked with!
Mr. Feldman represented us in a dispute with our Landlord. He filed suit but we never had to appear as our LL worked with us and agreed to resolve. Thank you.

Superb, confident, seasoned and pleasant all around attorney. You'll be more than pleased with his commitment and Etiquette.
Working with Scott was a pleasure and the man, not only cares for his clients, but even in my own aggravation and my own self doubts and concerns with the corporation we were making demands with, he was more than respectful to me, as well as the opposite party. His demeanor is excellent, I couldn't have hired a better person to represent me. Scott taught me things I'll remember for awhile, the bond between an attorney and client who never even met in person was the most comfortable, and heavily appreciated experience I had in a matter like this so far. He advised me about protecting my cats, and made sure I knew I'd be alright if I chose to go another way. It was well worth the retainer fee, his dedication and persistent responses are to be appreciated. This is an attorney that won't put your thoughts last, and won't ignore you. When he has a system going, he keeps it going. Even when I made mistakes myself, he was just as respectful after, and as Scott says, lessons are learned. This is an attorney you can build a great relationship with, and always know you're in good hands. He helped me, he helped my ESAS, and he did it in such a short amount of time. Make sure though, you let your attorney know what your wants are, don't change stuff up later, he's definitely on the ball, so give him the same respect if you hire him. Thank you very much Scott, for a pleasant, and trustworthy, straight forward representation. You have my thanks, as was previously discussed. :).

Professionalism and Respect
I'm so impressed with Scott's service. I had three matters he helped me with and each worked out very well. I even noted the professionalism and respect he had for the people he was helping me collect from. He's a top quality attorney and really knows his area well. I'd use him again in a second, he's my guy, for sure!

Scott Feldman: The Attorney You Should Always Call First
My wife and I hired Scott Feldman to help us navigate through some property loss issues we had with our insurance company as well as the public property adjuster we hired. Scott is extremely knowledgeable, organized, efficient and gave us great personal one on one service. Hiring an attorney can be a daunting process. If you are looking for someone who definitely has your back, I strongly recommend that you call Scott first. It will save you a lot of time and aggravation.

Review of Scott L. Feldman
I hired Mr. Feldman 6 months ago to represent me in an unemployment hearing and I was extremely pleased with his work. He was knowledgeable and well prepared, He was confident and was very professional in the court room and always treated me with respect. He was a pleasure to work with and I would absolutely use his services again in the future.

Thank Godness I had Scott at my Hearing!!!
I went to an appeal for un-employment compensation. I am very aware about legal matters but was not prepared to face what transpired. I was so grateful I had Mr. Feldman. He was dealing with insanity but was always ahead of the other attorney.and represented me admirably.Only a fool represents himself.Thank goodness I listened to my sons admonition.Highly recommend this gentleman!

Finally a competent and honest lawyer
I gave Scott Feldman 4 stars because no attorney deserves 5. My divorce lasted 5 years. I had gone through five attorneys (some recommended by my father - a former Philly ADA) before I used Scott's services. Over the years I have consulted with Scott regarding some employment contracts as well as opinions regarding my divorce. The details of my divorce were so complicated with a settlement document over 100 pages. The attorney that sat helped settle the divorce screwed me. I wrote a Google review on his negligence and incompetence (Arnold Machlas), but took it down after several months because he is a friend of my father's. Scott Feldman dealt with the complexities of my case expeditiously, while reaching out to his colleagues when some of the intricacies were out of his scope. He did not bill me for consulting with his lawyer friends. In the end, Scott helped get me out of a hell hole for a very acceptable fee. I believe total was under $1000. I wish I had used him all along. The incompetence of the other lawyers and their exorbitant fees were well over $45,000. I just stopped counting. Since then I have used Scott for notary work and random legal questions. He is always responsive and fair in his billing. I highly recommend Mr. Feldman for any civil litigation matter.

Do not work with Scott Feldman
I urge anyone seeking legal counsel to read through this review. Having been through a very tedious lawsuit, I now realize that the most important thing before retaining an attorney is to take advantage of the internet and do basic research. While writing this review I googled “Scott Feldman Attorney,” and found numerous reasons as to why I should have never hired Scott. The first thing that shows up on Scott Feldman through Avvo.com is a warning notice that states “This lawyer has been disciplined by a state licensing authority. Furthermore, he’s even on the Ripoff Report. A previous client stated “…. I don't know for the life of me how this guy even passed the bar. Scott L. Feldman will take your money and run… I was and continue to be dumbfounded by Scott Feldman’s legal and business practices. His abilities as a lawyer are utterly lacking: Scott did not emphasize the points I wished to stress and instead he spoke about things that were not helpful or pertinent to my case. Due to his decision to lead my defense in this manner, I found myself speaking about irrelevant points I was not comfortable with. I knew I was in trouble when I became confused by my own lawyer’s defense. To no surprise, Scott lost the case and I was told to reimburse the plaintiff. I considered an appeal, but I knew that this would cost thousands of dollars more in attorney fees. Conflicted, I spoke to others who had been in similar situations and everyone suggested I save money and settle. Now- here is the point in which I realized that I was being completely hustled by Scott Feldman. I expressed my doubts and concerns to Scott, but it was clear he wanted to go to court. I was very uncomfortable with how he kept on pressuring me to appeal. When I asked him approximately how much an appeal would cost me, he stated he was not comfortable giving me a number. This is the LAST thing I wanted. I wasn’t sure if he was so inept as a lawyer that he had no abilities to gauge how many hours preparing an appeal would take him or whether he was a complete crook – probably a mix of both. I immediately sought a new attorney who advised that I stick with Scott and settle as quickly as possible. Put simply, even if I won the case I would have spent around $5k in attorney fees, when I could have spent around $3k through settlement. Around this time, I received a bill from Scott for things I was unaware of. I asked him several questions about this bill and he never responded. Instead, a month later he sent me another bill with charges I yet again disagreed with. There were many discrepancies because much of the billing was for work that I specifically requested he not do. After receiving the final bill, I waited for Scott to either answer my questions or call me regarding payment. However, I never heard from him and never received any type of reminders or requests to remit payment. Instead, he decided to sue me for legal fees. Working with Scott was more difficult than dealing with the plaintiff. He continues to remind me of every negative lawyer stereotype that exists: liar, thief, crook etc. I was very disappointed and disillusioned by this experience because I could clearly tell that my attorney was more concerned about making money than helping me get out of an unwanted situation. He took complete advantage of me and tried his best to drag out my case- making my life miserable and his profitable. Do yourself a very big favor and stay away from Scott Feldman.
