  • Stephen Watrel

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Scott for nearly 20 years and he is one of the brightest, hard-working lawyers I know. There are very few lawyers in the State of Florida with his breadth of knowledge of the law and courtroom procedure. He fights hard for his clients and has always been a staunch supporter of the civil justice system and right to jury trial. I would recommend Scott to anyone looking for a real advocate.
