Wonderful
Mr. Scott Wantland is very responsive and knowledgeable. He assisted me in the finalization of two estates. I do not live in the state and she helped to reduce the amount of time I would have to travel down to handle the legalities. He is efficient and assisted me in knowing what needed to be done. I would have been lost at what I legally had to do to close these.

Great guy and team!!
Scott helped me when I needed it most. He is a complete straight shooter and completely honest, even when you don’t like what he tells you, you can tell that he cares! His staff members are extremely compassionate and always get back to you in a timely manner. I’ve felt comfortable going to them with any question. I will absolutely recommend him to all friends and family.

If you want results!!
Going to an attorney is extremely stressful in and of itself and I found myself extremely stressed in my situation. I went to Wantland Law and talked with Scott. He was very knowledgeable and straight forward. I didn't feel like he was telling me what i wanted to hear. Is he a miracle worker, no. But he works hard and strives for results, and when i hired him i got the results i wanted and needed. Thanks Wantland Law!!

The best!
I was in real financial trouble and I knew I had no other option than bankruptcy. I was terrified to make that step but after meeting Scott my fears were put aside. Him and his team really made me feel more at ease in this highly stressful time in my life. I have since got back on my feet and I owe it all to the team at Wantland law!

Best Lawyer in Bullitt County!
Scott Wantland is, in my opinion, the best attorney in Bullitt county! He is cutthroat, honest, and gets the job done! Wouldn’t have trusted anyone else to handle my case!

Is Scott Wantland the best Attorney?
I was involved in a nasty custody case. I had used another lawyer who was not getting any results. My children were in a desperate situation. A person at work said try Scott Wantland. Scott listened and fought for what was best for my children. With every move he made we got a step closer to getting my children to a safe place. He is not a miracle worker, but if you will listen to his advice, good things will happen. How do you say thank you to someone who has helped your children Is he the best Attorney maybe. Is he someone you want standing beside you in court? Absolutely!

Scott Wantland is honest, hardworking and ethical!
Scott Wantland has been my attorney for years. I trust him completely. He is honest and cares about his clients. When dealing with a child support and visitation issue, he made sure my daughter’s well-being came first. I highly recommend Scott Wantland if you are looking for someone who is honest, hardworking, ethical, knowledgeable and willing to work tirelessly for his clients.

Great Firm
Great firm with the best personal service. I recommend them to everyone. Their team is second to none. I cannot say enough to describe the fantastic experiences I have had when dealing with the Wantlands and their top notch supporting staff.

A lifesaver
Scott was highly instrumental in mitigating my traffic violation. As an out-of-towner with a speeding ticket, he went the extra mile to limit my stress involved with the case, prevent me from driving hours to appear at a court date, as well as reduce the fines associated with the citation.

Eased my fears of the creditor harassing me at my home!
I was afraid to file bankruptcy because my creditor said they would sue me if I did. I was terrified because it seemed this one particular creditor made it personal and would call me at my work, my home and then started calling my family. I had no choice but to call for help. I called Mr. Wantland's office and they treated me with much respect and calmed my nerves down. They told me the creditor would stop calling me after I filed and if they called again they would be in trouble for having done so. I could sleep soundly again and wake up with a smile on my face instead of dread. Mr. Wantland was very sweet to me and walked me through everything with kid gloves. I am thankful to have hired Mr. Wantland's firm.
