Scott has helped me since 1999 on a variety of legal issues including:
- formation of corporations including corporate charters, shareholder agreements, employment agreements and ISO plans
- contracts including sales of equity in privately held companies, consulting agreement
- taxes questions where my CPA required opinion of an attorney
- estate planning
- help navigate legal disputes such as breach of contract and reach settlement before actual litigation (he has referred me to other counsel if I were to proceed with litigation)
Scott is a great all around legal resource and is the best place to start with most legal questions.

Scott has been my company's trusted legal advisor since our inception over 12 years ago and before that in several other ventures. He offers sound advice and legal service on issues including employment matters, corporate governance, contract negotiation and tax compliance. He has always been incredibly responsive and succinct in helping us work through our legal matters. There are very few of our advisors who have lasted the test of time like Scott.
I couldn't recommend him highly enough.

Mr. Dondershine and his staff have always been very professional and responsive to our needs. In addition Mr. Dondershine and his staff are very reasonable when it comes to pricing.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Scott and I worked together on a matter involving judicial modification of an irrevocable trust. It was obvious Scott has in-depth knowledge of the intricacies of trust law in Virginia. I hope we have an opportunity to work together on another project in the future.
