I love practicing family law and help clients and their families create a new future. I know that those needing a family law attorney are often going through the worst time of their life.  My caring staff and I are here to help you navigate through an imperfect process with strong advocacy and empathy.  My clients have my cell phone number and I am easily accessible despite my second job as the Mayor of Coral Springs.

While I am an imperfect man, attorney and Dad, I am committed to others' well-being and peace of mind.  It is a blessing to have the opportunity to help my clients and their children create new possibilities and attempt to have closure after the transition through the divorce process.

Because of Covid, I have also developed a digital/virtual practice and can meet my clients through electronic means without requiring them to come to my office.

Simply amazing!!!!!!!!!!
I've had few positive experiences with attorneys. I say this because a lot of them think they are above most people with an arrogant air about them. Mr. Brook is far from that. From the moment I stepped into his office for the consultation he put me at easy. He explained everything and we discussed thinks at length and he actually listens to understand vs listening to just hear what's being said. That is very important when choosing an attorney, He also gave me an example from his life that corresponded with an event in my life. I can't stress how few people show empathy now a days. It was quite refreshing. So far every interaction I've had with Scott and everyone of his office personnel from Kim to Krishna to Amanda has been amazing. I can't say thank you enough to all of them for helping me through this very trying process. Let me say this has not been a typical easy situation for any party involved either. I will definitely say that should I ever need any legal help in family law in the future. I will definitely be calling Scott back again

Amazing family law attorney
After several consultations with other attorneys, Scott Brook was recommended to me from a very close friend. I knew at our consultation he was the right one. We are several months into my case and Scott and his office team have been exceptional in every way. They are always there for me regardless the question or time of day. They make you feel comfortable during this scary time of divorce. I am so grateful that I have Scott and his team to get me through this. I can’t thank them enough, and highly recommend Scott Brook and his team.

An Amazing Attorney and person
Scott Brook is an exceptional attorney who I would highly recommend. My case was unique and complicated that my previous family attorney recommended Mr. Brook to me. My ex wife had filed a motion to vacate our final judgement of dissolution of marriage. I was very stressed and fearful of the judgement being overturned. After my first consultation with Mr. Brook I felt very relieved. He has calm and steady voice that puts you at ease. Throughout the case Mr. Brook was excellent in communicating with me and was very responsive to my emails. As far as the case, Scott was able through strategic ways prevent the final judgment of marriage dissolution to be set aside. I am so thankful for him and his staff. He is very professional, honest and an experienced attorney. I would highly recommend him for his services.

Family Law
I would like to express how happy I am that Scott Brooks and his Paralegal Krishna Barrett has agreed to represent my son and his daughter. For many years my son has been locked in a nasty court battle with his ex wife and the shared custody with his daughter without any hope. Today Mr Brooks and his team are the legal representative for us and I am very confident that the outcome will be in the best interest of my grand daughter. I would definitely recommend Mr Scott Brooks and his team to anyone with a family situation that requires legal attention. He has been a beacon of light in a dark situation. I most definitely appreciate his hard work and tenacity that he puts into each case. He treats each client not only as a client but as a family member Thank you Scott Brooks for being there for my family Pamela Powell

Supportive and Amazing
Amazing and Supportive Attorney Scott Brook is one of the best family related attorney you can get around in Broward County. Before I was filing for my divorce, I went around and met many lawyers around the area. My case could have been complicated so I want to meet the best attorney possible and I sure made the right choice. Everything went smooth as expected. Oppossing counsel was a very pushy one but Scott has given me suggestions throughout to get a desired outcome. Number of type of documents required for filing can be overwhelming, but Scott's staff helped me throughout with this process and was able to process this smoothly. It was very easy to make appointments with him and meet him personally to talk If you are looking to hire an attorney,Scott and his team are amazing professionals who truly look out for their clients

Thank you so much Attorney Scott Brook!!!
Attorney Scott Brook represented me better than I ever could have imagined. During my very difficult time (divorce related issues) my needs were put first and I was treated as a friend rather than as a number or a stranger. My doubts and extreme anxieties we're always reassured and my feelings and opinions were valued. My nerves were calmed personally by Attorney Brook himself, he went above and beyond and he did everything he could to achieve a great outcome! Attorney Brook and his office team are highly professional, responsive, and caring. I am very thankful and appreciate of Attorney Scott Brook and highly recommend him because he is truly there for you!

Amazing Family Law Attorney
When you are going through a major life transition like a divorce, you prepare yourself for very difficult days ahead. Other than the support of family and friends, the very positive experience that I had with Attorney Scott Brook stood out as a beacon of light during a difficult period. From the time that we met to discuss the details, throughout the process and right up to the final hearing and even beyond to finalize details, Scott, his paralegal Carmen and associate attorneys were skilled, helpful, compassionate and showed a level of empathy rarely found these days. Thank you to Scott Brook for making my life easier when I needed the help of an attorney. He is the best!

Best there is
Mr. Brook has represented my fiancée and I in a very complex case and has shown nothing but compassion and professionalism throughout his representation. In the courtroom, Mr. Brook has shown his knowledge and confidence and commands the attention of the court when he speaks. We have also witnessed the level of respect his peers have for Mr. Brook

Scott Brook
If you are going through a divorce and have the opportunity to have Scott Brook as your attorney, you are one of the lucky ones. Scott is a superb divorce lawyer and so much more--as a professional and a person. He's a litigator and a negotiator. Scott Brook is a pillar of strength, a "sniper" and smart. He has patience and laser-focus. He's an intelligent and intellectual human-being, and more than anything a "human-being". Scott listens, and he is patient and respectful; he takes the time to explain all angles of every aspect of your case. Scott is direct, answers all questions, and advises you. He cares about your case; he cares about You. Working with Scott, I have been protected and I feel safe. Scott is trustworthy. And, trust me (an attorney), you want him to be Your attorney and not your adversary's. Put yourself in Scott's hands and let him guide you forward.

Amazing lawyer
I went to Scott with a pretty complicated family legal matter, he was by far the best person for the job. His understanding, his conviction, his professionalism, his genuine caring, support and legal knowledge went beyond what we could have ever expected. The emotions of a case like ours were extremely hard to mange from week to week, Scott used his calm and caring way to keep us grounded and not too worry, he always explained the status of things and never promised anything he didn't think he could deliver. In the early stages of the case we thought that Scott might have been to "low key" since we were so angry at the situation life had presented us with, we wanted a pit bull, as it turns out, Scott is, precisely that, a pit bull but in a calming, smart, intelligent and organized manner...The guy is GREAT!!!! We can go on and on with his praises but we won't, we just wanted everyone to know that we got ALL that we had hoped for. In addition to Scott, the team that worked on our case deserves recognition, they were ALWAYS kind and supportive. When all was said and done, the results were in, WE WON! Scott saved a family and brought joy to our lives, for this we will always be grateful....
