Scott Allums
I was in a very difficult financial situation and as a last resort decided to speak to an attorney. An acquaintance overheard what I was going through and recommended Scott Allums. After the initial consultation, I hired Mr. Allums. I am very happy with both He and his staff. They were professional and compassionate. I would highly recommend Scott Allums to anyone needing an Attorney.

I was a nervous wreck to the point of making myself physically sick over my finances. Scott and Jean quickly set my mind at ease and they handled my case in a very friendly and professional manor. I mow have a plan that is manageable and its wonderful to be able to sleep. Thank You very much and God Bless you all
