If you hire this lawyer you will be making colossal mistake that will not only affect you monetarily, but also contribute your stress. Scott and his team are some of the most unprofessional individuals I have ever dealt with, and it is a very unpleasant experience to speak with them they have no regard for the consumer. A lawyer that practices this type of law has to have a sense of compassion towards the consumer, and the reason why is you are dealing with people's homes they may have worked their entire life to fulfill the American dream and own a home. Scott and his firm don't care about their consumers or what happens to their home they care about generating the most net income they can even if it means operating in an unethical manner. Scott was contracted by us for over three years and he was paid over twenty grand and produce absolutely nothing and this amount does not justify the amount of motions filed for this case; There are many other lawyers that will charge you less and do a much better job and treat you with respect. There were many instances in which I spoke to his staff and they used vulgar language and spoke with such veracity towards you it seemed like they had disdain for the consumer. Then during our engagement I brought actual figures which their representative was clueless of, and they agreed I would not have to pay them from that point on this would be considered a verbal contract an offer was made by the offeror and me as the offeree I accepted, but they ended making this null. Once they saw the case was dragging on further and further they called for money and threatened to drop the case if I didn't pay, so they use intimidation tactics against their consumers. They also charged my credit card without authorization I could have easily disputed this charge and won. Scott studied law for all the wrong reasons he doesn't want to help the consumer he only cares about profit, and you may not see this because you are blinded by his promises which he will never deliver on or the many other fallacies and unethical tactics he employs. I am still dealing with the foreclosure process, but we no longer deal with this attorney and his firm they don't even as much call me. In the end the best advice I can give you is never contract this firm you will save an abundance of I am an accountant so I know, and you will most likely achieve a better result than you would with this firm.

My case has been going on for several years now. I paid this firm over $25,000 and am in the same position now as when I started. Podvin is very difficult to get a hold of. His office staff never seems to be on the same page. I hope that if Podvin hurt you, please file a complaint against with the Florida Bar.

This law firm is a wolf in sheep clothing. They will tell you how great and successful they are in achieving results. You, Scott Podvin and your staff will reap what you sow just like Bernie Madoff and the likes. You have taken advantage of me and many other clients. The law will catch up with you. The Wheel of Justice works very slow; however, it works perfectly well. It hurts when you take advantage of people who are struggling. A thief will always be a thief... You sure don't have the reputation of being a fair and honest lawyer. Hope you change and don't take advantage of another client. Your business practice is very unethical.
