4.5 stars 30 totalReview Scott Schlegel
Posted by Ellen
Mr. Schlegel was phenomenal in court. Opposing counsel was obviously ill-prepared, but Scott came in looking and acting very well put together. He was very organized and meticulous in his note taking during the entire proceedings.
Not only was Mr. Schlegel punctual and prepared, it was apparent that he retains a wealth of knowledge regarding case law. He was able to easily reference past cases to make valid points while arguing mine.
Concise and direct, Scott did not waste any of my time during preparations or during the actual court proceedings. His questioning helped me to feel at ease in a tense divorce proceeding.
I give him so much credit for the very favorable outcome that was handed down.

I am super satisfied with Scott's work. Not only is he extreamly bright, he is a thoughtful person and "in tune" with the emotional rollercoaster that occurs in a divorce case. Patient, analytical, great listener, sound advisor .... these are all qualities you need to seek when selecting an attorney who is going to walk down this highly personal path with you. Rhiannon, his paralegal, is awesome too. Kudos to you both! Great that we could work everything out in mediation and not have to go through an ugly court battle. Thank you so much!!! I will be feferring my friends to you. Take care.

Scott was understanding and very compassionate. He understood our issues and helped us to understand the legal process. Scott represented our issues and used the law to get our revised plan that was much more fair than the original plan at the time of the divorce 8 years ago. We had to go to court twice and mediation once. He won both cases hands down. When my ex wife did everything to obstruct the process he continued to use the law and get our rights recognized. Scott's legal brilliance kept a very stressful event manageable and we all worked together to accomplish our goals. His legal team are very talented and suppoetive. If we have to go back to court Scott is who we will definitely use.

I have been working with Scott in a very complicated separation and divorce over the last 18 months. He has been professional, truthful, highly ethical, and aggressive when need be every step of the way.
He has always put my kids and family first, and calmly fought the correct battles to get the best outcome. He refuses to mud sling and when the other side tries scare tactics, he stays high and stays focused on the matters at hand.
We are not yet finished with my case, but the outcome of our first time in front of a judge was more than I could have hoped for or expected.
Scott and his office (especially Rhiannon) are quick to respond, caring, knowledgeable, and NEVER have treated me like just another client. He is very well respected, outstanding in mediation and court, and gets results.
Will highly recommend to anyone that has a need for a family law attorney.

Scott Schlegel represented me in a very complex divorce modification involving child custody and out of state relocation. I was consistently impressed with his level of professionalism and communication. Scott clearly explained the law to me, set my expectations for the most likely outcome, and then relentlessly pursued the best interests of my child. His experience and network of contacts in the Orlando area really paid off, as Scott coordinated everything we needed to support our case. Scott had just the right combination of knowing where to pick and choose his battles, respecting my budget and not inflating hours unnecessarily, but also knowing where to invest his time for the best result. He and his office kept me updated nearly real time on any developments in my case, and he was always available to me when needed. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of my case, and recommend Scott Schlegel without hesitation.

Scott and his team were vital in navigating a very difficult time in my life. They got to know my family and our situation and really went to bat for what we needed.

Scott Schlegel is heaven sent! My case has been going on for almost 2 years. First I invested in Donna Hung and she did not give me the results I was looking for and she didn't show up to my mediation and the case got nowhere. After not being able to not see my son I decided to hire another lawyer Scott Schlegel as referred to me by my wife I was first skeptical but after talking to Scott he insured me that I will be able to see my son. I consider myself lucky my case was hard to fight. Most of the lawyers I talked to were not sure if they were going to be able to get me what I was asking for. I hired Scott 2 weeks before trail for my paternity case he was so aggressive that my son's mother asked for mediation and gave me everything I asked for. Save yourself time and money by hiring Scott he is reputable and extremely knowledgeable.

I emailed the office to set up a free consultation. His office never contacted me, so I had to call them back. I requsted a "free consultation" as was advertised on his web site, but was informed it was only free for a 30 minute telephone consultation. To meet the attorney in his office for a consultation would cost $200.00! After giving my information and scheduling a phone appointment, the receptionist called me back immediately to tell me Mr. Schlegel would not be able to do a consultation of any kind, phone or otherwise. She refused to provide a reason he did not want my business, and was very abrupt. I can only assume there is no money to be made on the type of services I requested!

Scott is an amazing attorney, and has been such an immense help in modifying timesharing with my daughters. Scott is knowledgeable, aggressive, and truly cares about me as a client and the work he is doing on my behalf. I feel so much more comfortable with this process with Scott on my side. Retaining Scott as my attorney is easily the best decision I've ever made and I will continue to recommend him to anyone who needs a family law attorney.

Scott was very responsive before the first check was received. After that, i felt I was chasing him for information. My case took much longer than it should have (confirmed with other attorneys) My impression was he has over booked himself and doesn't give you the time you deserve. One year after my settlement agreement was signed I went to another attorney, who flat told me I never should signed what I did. Long story short, I was not happy with the "service" I receieved. If you are looking for a personal approach to legal services, this is not where to go.
