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.

Mr Brooks was hired for a 3rd party custody case. This case was extremely complex. After paying his 295.00 consultation fee, which by the way, he stopped the zoom meeting to make sure payment went through, I informed him how complex the case was. The red flags went off when he did not know the law in how long a child holds Jurisdiction in a state. I actually had to educate him, he later confirmed I was correct. That should have been a red flag for me. Once I explained the case, he stated during his paid consultation, that he knew exactly where to go with the case. We would start with emergency petition for temporary custody for the child. The child is my nephew who I have cared for, and raised for over 2 years ( deadbeat parent case). So I paid Mr. Brooks his 5,000 retainer, he also asked for another 1000 just for court cost. Prior to him starting the petition, I sent Mr. brooks a highly detailed email. I sent him evidence, therapy letters, report cards, and a timeline. I am a very through person. I received a petition a few days after our initial conversation. After reading the petition, I thought it was written by a high schooler. I had to not only edit, but correct everything on the petition. I spent hours collecting all the data needed to put together a strong petition. Making Mr Brooks job very easy. I informed Mr. Brooks of my disappointment in the level of incompetence in the petition that was orchestrated. I could not believe that would come form a paralegal. It was clear, Mr. Brooks did not review the petition prior to allowing his paralegal to send it to me. After I emailed him my great disappointment, he agreed with me. Mr. Brooks stated there would be no charge for that petition and he apologized. Fine, I gave him another shot.
He then reassigned the petition to another paralegal in the office. Ericka, who was amazing, and sadly no longer with the firm; within 2 hours wrote a wonderful written, to the point petition with very minor issues. She was on top of it. After I approved the petition, I told Mr. Brooks, it sounds good, but I am not a lawyer and now everything is in your hands. 2 days later Mr. Brooks called me and said " well the judge denied the petition" ( crickets). I responded with frustrations once he had no further answers or steps to move forward. " Ok so what is next"? He said 'I guess we have to wait for the hearing in 2 months". Mind you, my nephews deadbeat parents decided to call kidnapping charges on me and law enforcement after giving me a POA to take care of their child for two years.
This child sustained neglect and abuse from them, I was NOT going to let them come and take him. So I had to push Mr, Brooks into giving me the next step. Scott like to act like he is Mr. Calm, cool, and collective by telling you " I'll talk to you tomorrow" when you, as a client are looking for answers. He talks to you like a child, when you are his client paying him thousands of dollars.
My husband and I are very concern for this little boy, and we are giving all we have to keep him safe. I lost sleep many nights thanks to Mr. Brooks. My attorney should be fighting for me, I felt as if I was fighting my family and Mr. Brooks.
After 1 petition, and his bright idea to amend the petition and resubmit it again to the judge, we receive his bill. For the 2nd time his bill was way over. We spent almost 1800 on an amended petition, which only added 3 more paragraphs to the petition filed initially which cost us 2700.00. He charged me 30.00 for a text messages and 2 sentence emails, he charged me for doing research and it took him 2 weeks to file an EMERGENCY petition AFTER I EDIT IT FOR HOURS. He triple charged me for many items and when I confronted him, he withdrew my case!
In the consultation he expressed "my daughters are not mine by blood, but they are mine, so I know exactly how you feel", he comes off like a sincere person, but he isn't, he is a politician.
DO NOT HIRE!!!

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

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

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!

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!
