I hired him for a criminal defense case. He was quick to answer all my questions and knowledgeable and right to the point. I knew what was going to happen before any proceedings and we worked well together. He was very personable and professional. I won and I did not want this to be on my recor because it might effect my career path as I am a student. I was very happy with the outcome. I recommend this attorney.

I've just hired Scott to represent my husband because he came highly recommended. I feel that it is the wisest decision I could have made in an extremely trying time. When things seem to be more than I can bear, just talking to him makes me feel calmer and more confident that everything will work out okay. Not once have I felt that I could have found a better lawyer!

Very knowledgeable, took time to answer all questions and clearly explain case, returned all calls, answered questions within a reasonable time frame, dealt with a difficult case for my son , he went above and beyond my expectations, handled everything well and in a timely manner with exceptional knowledge of the law, grace, and professionalism. I was comfortable with his fee's, his educational background, when I had questions his responses were educated and he immediately knew what the laws involved were and explained everything extensively, his presentation and speaking skills are excellent. He seems to have a passion for what he does and it was apparent through out the case. My son's case was won.
