Child custody
I could not have asked for a better attorney. Abigal B. Scott was knowledgeable, professional, patient, and hard working. I was comfortable with her from the very beginning. I trusted her guidance. I know she genuinely cared about my family. We won our custody case.

If you are looking for an Honest and dependable lawyer look no further. My attorney Abigail is amazing. My first encounter with Abigail was for my divorce, she helped me got the best result anyone could hope for. This is why I came back to her for my traffic ticket. She is very attention to detail and great communicator. She listened to all of my concerns and addressed every blade of grass in the case. Abigail is the definition of a true professional with great character. I got a 5 pointer ticket that she handled and she represented me in court and I walked out with ZERO points. I would highly recommend Abigail to represent anyone. The two times she has represented me (divorce and traffic) on both occasions I got the best results anyone could hope for.

Professionalism, Responsiveness, Proactive, dedicated, Dexterity of the law
I never dreamed I would ever need a divorce attorney but I was wrong. Going through a divorce is one of the most stressful situations one could go through in life. Ms Scott understood that and walked me through over every barrier/hops and she was very thorough and stern. Her dexterity of the law is unmatched. She represented me in a manner that made my experience the best it could have been under these circumstances. She advised me all the way. She has a lot of patience. She took her time and explained things to me very clearly. Ms Scott accepted my calls whenever I needed her. She was in constant communication with me even at odd hours of the day. I never felt like I did not know what was going on in my case. Overall, I give Ms Scott and her staff the highest recommendation.

I hired attorney Abigail Scott to represent me in my custody case. She limited the amount of stress I felt during the duration of this case by thoroughly explaining the process and guiding me every step of the way. She was always available to answer any of my questions and helped us come to an agreement before trial, that benefited all parties and most importantly my child. Her professionalism was top tier and I would recommend her to anyone in need of a family law attorney.

Fast Immigration process
This is my first experience using an attorney and Abigail made my experience seamless. I am so glad she represented me. Abigail is knowledgeable and if all your documentation is complete then your process will be very fast. I just received my GC and my husband and I are so happy.

Criminal Defense
Ms. Scott. Produced exceptionally satisfying results with my criminal case. Of all the other cases & attorneys I witnessed, I feel I had the best representation. Ms. Scott was meticulous, & sharp. Confident, & thorough in the presentation of her argument on my behalf. She's an impressive, powerful energy. In comparison to others, she's a star. I am so lucky, & thankful to have had her representation.

Fantastic Service!
Ms. Scott assisted me with a motion to seal a criminal record. She was efficient and thorough. She always responded to my questions promptly and with great detail. My case was sealed in record time thanks to her given the court was DC. I highly recommend Ms. Scott!

A professional as well as accessible lawyer: highly motivated
Ms. Scott assisted me during a time period when my Mother was just recovering from cancer surgery and I had been out of town for over a month caring for her, only to come home to frivolous litigation initiated by a roommate. I was stressed by the whole situation, but Ms. Scott was patient and efficient. She took the matter in hand and rapidly assisted me in dealing with the situation. I could not have asked for a better representative in court. She made sure I was informed. She was extremely well prepared for the case. It is my hope to see Ms. Scott continue to expand her practice. I am grateful for her representation. The case was dismissed and my stress levels dropped accordingly. Now I can focus on my family needs again. Ms. Scott made my life a whole lot easier recently. Her motivation to help clients is sincere and solid.
