Honest and worth every penny
From my first consultation with scott to the last day of our litigation process scott demonstrated how to be a real advocate for his clients. Scott demonstrated professionalism and knowledge and was always one step ahead of the opposing sides lawyer. I'm extremely happy with the service we received and the cost of the services was more than fair. We had a total of two hearings both of witch we won and without scotts guidance and direction we would have been able to win our case and receive 98% of our intial claim. I would recommend scott to anyone seeking a lawyer he has the experience and knowledge to help you win your case.

I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer
At a time in my life when I was scared and uncertain, Scott MacNair was by my side talking me through the whole process. He was always available for questions and advice. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to represent me through a difficult situation.

If you want a lawyer that will defend you as though it is his life on trial, and his future at stake, then I highly recommend retaining Scott A. MacNair. I will never forget how Scott A. MacNair passionately and eloquently argued for me in court and after we won the Jurrors waited outside the courtroom to meet and shake his hand. Thanks to you justice was served!
