Attorney Scott was professional, knowledgeable and understanding. She gave me exactly what I needed during the difficult time of my divorce. She was on top of everything. She kept me grounded during the process so that I could make decisions based on logic not emotions. I would recommend her services to anyone in need of legal assistance.
