Informative consultation
Mr. Scott explained my options in great detail and in a way that was easy to understand. He's knowledgeable in corporations and non profits and now I know how to move forward with revamping. I intend on hiring him to assist with the businesses transition.

Professional and Effective Attorney
I highly recommend Mr. Scott. I was the victim of a crime and he made a world of difference in helping me navigate my situation. He not only took on my civil case, but he was there for me through the process of being a witness in a criminal proceeding as well. Watching Mr. Scott in the courtroom is truly impressive!

Great lawyer, always there to support you
Nigel has been working with our startup for over three years now. He's always responsive and always available. He truly puts clients first. It's been great working with him (and getting to know him).

Excellent lawyer
Mr. Nigel Scott answered my immigration-related questions promptly and professionally, he was very patient clarifying and explaining, and all the information procided was up-to-date and accurate. My situation changed, so we did not hire Mr. Scott, but I am sure that he would have done everything properly.

Procrastination and Minutiae
Mr. Scott appears to be bright and knowledgeable, however, his communication style comes across patronizing and condescending. Because he knows something about the law, he believes he is equally versed in other areas. Communication with him is not easy or effective. It's a sign of his insecurity. His approach prevents a successful end and closure, to major issues. Mr. Scott over compensates in his delivery, which comes across tentative and he appears unsure of himself. It appears that he is working for the defense attorney, and not for his own client . This left me with little or no confidence in his representation.

Response from Nigel Scott September 26, 2023
There are a number of things that are suspicious about this review, not the least of which being the highly personal nature of the comments, and that it has been submitted anonymously. That being said, I am always open to constructive criticism, if you are legitimately a client of mine I invite you to contact me offline to discuss the situation, I would be more than happy to address your concerns and try and make the situation right.
