Good outcome
Very helpful, very friendly, easy to talk with. Felt comfortable in sharing information. Very happy with the outcome, was able to avoid going to court.

Scott was great to deal with in my case. I cannot recommend him and the firm highly enough. Absolutely would use them again.

Highly Recommend
Scott did an amazing job at helping me paint the picture of a traumatic experience that I had to relive in order to persuade the court to provide protection from a terrible mistake. During my testimony, he knew what questions to ask but also handled the situation with compassion. I was very impressed and pleased with his closing argument. I believe it helped the Judge to make the best call and my children and I can continue on living life with more ease.
