Successfully got my case dismissed
Charles Scott represented me diligently throughout the legal process. He demonstrated tremendous tenacity in pursuing information that led to the dismissal of my case and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Highly recommended.

Best Lawyer in Tampa Bay
I came to Mr. Scott after my auto injury. I was in a lot of pain, and was unsure on what to do. Mr. Scott explained to me the medical ramifications that I can be exposed to if I did not seek medical treatment. We started my case and I received the treatment that I needed. Mr. Scott was very aggressive, smart, and tenacious knowing exactly what to do (in addition to Mr. Scott being in this business for over 20 years) and settled my case with a very nice outcome. I would recommend Mr. Charles Scott to everyone. He is my Lawyer for life.
