Real 5 Star Legal Services
Idk How much experience Ms.Scott had previously in Auto Dealer Fraud , but she heard my case & agreed to take it. And in the end I am more then satisfied. I've used both criminal and civil lawyers before , & I have to say her legal services could be easily " Top 10 Worldwide" honestly! In less then 60 days I had results I could live with.
