Scott Levine is my super hero!
Scott Levine came to my rescue in my divorce case. After being mistreated by another attorney, Scott stepped in and worked magic! Scott is so knowledgeable about family law and took tons of time to carefully review and explain all the details about the divorce process. He answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable in all aspects of my case. His work ethic is impeccable and he performed with great diligence and efficiency on my case. Cannot thank Scott enough!!

5 stars isn't enough! Scott Levine is the best!
I had a difficult case. A true not me case. Because there was no arrest or fingerprints it was very hard to prove it wasn't me. I discovered I had a warrant for my arrest when I applied for an apartment and they did a background check. I talked to him after researching for a couple weeks. He gave me more information in a 20 minute conversation than I could find in 2 weeks of research, before I even hired him. He did way more than originally thought necessary. His diligence, wisdom, knowledge, years of experience & research that left no stone unturned, eventually cleared my name. He also insisted the warrant be lifted while clearing up this huge mess. I could go through the process feeling safe w/o fear of going to jail. He actually did way more than what I originally hired him for. He didn't charge me more even with me asking about it. Scott Levine is amazing! All that experience, wisdom, knowledge, connections, diligence and tenacity, yet still generous at heart. I would hire him for ANY & ALL legal matters! Scott Levine would be a great deal at twice the price! Your in good care with Scott & can trust Scott Levine implicitly!

Made things happen and got the job DONE!!
Scott was referred to me. At the time I hired him my divorce had been finalized 4 years prior, but I was not receiving anything due me from my ex .... no child support and no alimony. Scott was meticulous in how he went about moving things along. Scott is extremely knowledgeable and his experience shows he knows exactly when and what to do at the right time. He seems to know just how to deal with certain "types"! He sure does have a lot of patience and was very understanding of my needs. We never had to go back to trial as he made it all happen during mediation. It's hard to put in words just what a great job Scott did for me. He was extremely professional at all times. I highly recommend Scott to anyone who needs a family attorney!!!

Knowledgeable and compassionate lawyer. A true gem!
Scott handled a post judgment issue for me. He was very smart and caring throughout the process. He knew the law and was straighforward with me from the beginning. He was aggressive when he had to be and handled my case well, He cares about his clients.

One word amazing!
One word amazing! No really, I have had very costly passed experiences with attorneys. Mr. Levine himself answered the phone and talked to me about my child support issue for about 20 minutes in which he explained where I can get the records, how much it would cost, even gave me my case numbers. He then explained what I needed to do after I get the records. He didn’t charge me did tell me that I needed him. No charge? None. I hope that no one has to deal with family court but if you do my advice is Scott Levine. Mr. Levine, thank you again. Andres V

All around excellence.
Attorney Levine tapped out - what appeared effortlessly -several brilliant last minute motions for me on the keyboard on several occasions. He knows his craft and has nurtured, established contacts in his network. He thinks on-his-feet and was the consummate professional when the Broward court system changed court rooms, Judges, and other Agenda's on a moments notice. He personally fielded my numerous phone inquires through out the process. He was patient and detailed in ensuring I was included and understood all proceedings. I liked the fact he took an interest in my military Veteran status and expressed his appreciation for my having served. I will definitely go back to him in the future if the need arises, and definitely am comfortable referring him.

Awesome Attorney
Mr. Levine was extremely knowledgeable about family laws, child custody, mediation & alimony. He was available to take my questions & answered in a way that I could understand, not a bunch of leagal terminology that I am not familiar with. He always told me my options, good or bad. I told him what I wanted during the whole divorce process and thankfully he guided me towards a happy resolution that I could live with, not just one that lined his pockets.
