Great help with child support/passport issue
Ms. Scott helped me tremendously with my child support issue by educating my on rights that I had regarding obtaining a passport. Even though I am paying back child support and was told that I could not obtain a passport, Ms. Scott showed me how I was indeed eligible to receive a travel passport. She was professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable. And the whole experience was very cost effective for me, as Ms. Scott also laid out various payment options available to me. I didn't feel like just another client, as I had with other attorneys, but I truly felt Ms. Scott sincerely wanted to help me resolve my issue in a timely manner.
Highly recommended Divorce Attorney in St Peresburg
The Law Office of Tara Scott was very professional, they helped me through a very difficult time in my life. I would highly recommend her, for her caring and thoroughness in my situation.
Professional, ethical and affordable
As an independent bankruptcy paralegal, I work with approximately a dozen law firms in the Tampa Bay Area. I always feel that Ms. Scott's clients receive compassionate yet firm, knowledgeable counsel when they are represented by The Law Offices of Tara J. Scott. In addition to her hands-on approach, she has surrounded herself with a detail oriented staff who treat their clients with a dignity and level of attention that I don't often see from firms comparable in size.
As a petition preparer for pro se Debtors, I feel 100% confident in recommending Ms. Scott to individual Debtors who may require legal representation beyond the scope of the services I can offer.
Extremely disorganized and unprofessional. This attorney and her staff have lied on several occasions and have charged thousands of dollars for work they did not do. Do your homework before hiring her.

As I do not know the source of this comment, it is impossible for me to assess the factual scenario of the situation. However, the most common source of a client's dissatisfaction is the fact we are unable to always obtain the result the client wants. As the lawyer, I am only one factor of many when it comes to the outcome of a case. Second, I have had individuals who are not clients post reviews as a strategy to hurt my credibility for other reasons than being dissatisfied. The Law Offices of Tara J. Scott, PA has an excellent reputation in the legal community.
Sundae handedly ruined my financial well being
I would advise anyone who is seeking a divorce attorney to look elsewhere. This woman single handedly ruined my financial well being. She does not advocate or fight for her clients. My husband of 15 years broke my right hand and took our business. Tara told me I should stop living in the past and get a job. Well I had a job- an amazing business that my ex took from me. I would love to forget the past but my mangled right hand is a constant reminder of what he did and took.
That was her advice to me? She took $4500 and did nothing. No court appearance, no advocating, nothing but agree with my ex’s attorney that I should get all of the household bills, mutual credit card debt, and all business debt and pay for all of this with $2,000 a month. As well as take care of our two children. While my ex should get the business and all of its income???? I don’t know who in their right mind would think that’s doable or what the court ordered. It’s not- she was in over her head and instead of saying so, she took my money and my time and left me out to dry. I had maintained my credit and financial well being until she became my lawyer. EVERYTHING FELL APART AS SOON AS I MADE THE MISTAKE TO HIRE THIS INCOMPETENT ATTORNEY.
It’s been a long divorce due to Covid- there are a lot of pieces to my case. I get it’s a lot- she knew what was going on and said she could handle it. She didnt. She is the epitome of lawyer jokes. Please don’t waste your time like I did. Unless it’s an extremely simple, no assets, no kids, no ABUSE case. I’m sure she would do just fine on that type of divorce. Anything besides the straight forward and u are wasting your time.
I wish someone had told me this info before I wasted time and energy with this horrible attorney.

I am so sorry to hear that your experience with us was so negative. Unfortunately in the legal system, within the branch of family law especially, there are too many times in which what the law permits and what is fair to the parties don’t align. I don’t take those times lightly and it doesn’t ever get easier having to deliver hard news to my clients in difficult cases such as yours – I can’t tell you how often I wish I had the ability to change the laws and the requirements of the Court, but I firmly believe that we did everything within our power, and within the bounds of the justice system, to prevail in your case. Regardless, we want to thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate your feedback and will use it as a learning experience moving forward.
