I retained Mr. Scott Ferris to represent me and my daughter. He always responded no matter what time of the day or night, I had questions or situations. Mr. Ferris defended my interests and my daughters in a very meticulous and diligent way. He helped bring positive solutions to my process that turned negatively in the middle of it. His advices every time, direct but caring and conscientious.
Mr. Ferris, was always there for me during a very difficult and sad time of my life, and for that I will be always grateful. I recommend Mr. Scott Ferris to represent anybody in their separation, divorce, mediation Family Law process. (Hopefully nobody has to go thru it). Thank you and God bless, LAC

I hired Scott Ferris for a modification of child support and visitation. Scott is very detailed, knowledgeable and diligent. He fought for my children's best interest and I'm very happy with the outcome. I recommend him to everyone I know!

Scott helped me through a very difficult time in my life. He made my divorce process a lot less stressful. Scott wasn't just my attorney but with time he became a very good mentor for me. He definitely fights for his clients or should I say friends/family.
Peter Heller, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Scott on many criminal cases over the years both as co-counsel and as attorneys representing co-defendants in both state and federal court. What I most admire about Scott is Scott's meticulous work ethic as well as his insatiable desire to advocate for his clients at an extremely professional and ethical level. Besides the cases we have worked together, I direct all family court matters that I come across to Scott without any reservation. The personal touch and his compassionate "bed side" manner are beyond reproach. I routinely receive calls from clients I have referred to Scott thanking me profusely for putting them in touch with him. What I hear most is how well he treats his clients and how accessible and competent he is.
