Incredible Work Ethic!
Scott is the reason I spend so much time with my Children today. I have never felt more empowered knowing Scott is advocating on my behalf. And I am wildly impressed with how much effort he devotes to understanding my issues and working to achieve the best possible legal outcome. Always returns calls, emails, provides regular updates, is honest, logical, diligent. For the last two years I have never doubted Scott's decisions, and I have always been astonished with his ability to listen and understand all aspect of each circumstance. I am grateful he is on my side.

You want Scott as your attorney
Scott Sylkatis is truly a genuine guy. He was very hard working for the entire duration of my child custody/divorce case. He truly cares about his clients and their families and works his hardest towards your wants/needs. He is very knowledgeable in law, extremely detail oriented, kept me well informed, and answered any questions that I may have had quickly(whether it be through direct phone calls, texts, or emails). I never felt as if I was “left in the dark” during this case. He made sure to explain every detail of the process to me. I truly trust him as an attorney and would recommend him highly to others. He isn’t one to play games and nickel and dime you at every turn but; to the contrary, tries his best to save you money. He has a fair price and always worked through payments with me. Thank you again Scott for all that you did for my family and myself.

Fantastic Lawyer!!
I wish I could find all the right words to explain how extremely lucky I felt to have found Scott to take on my very lengthy custody battle. I had met with other lawyers in the area and was feeling defeted in my search for representation until I met with Scott. He was extremely professional, was quick to respond to questions/concerns, and was 100% upfront and realistic about the process. He fought hard for my child and I and reached the best outcome possible!

Honest and fights for you.
Scott is very honest with what he thinks which i refreshing for a lawyer. He wont waste your time or money on nonsense. He is a very nice guy and very firm in the courtrooms. He is amazing at getting results. I have had the chief of police tell me i got a good "hound dog" which if i were scott i would take that as a compliment.i am so happy he is/was my attorney

Best Lawyer
Scott Sylkatis is the best lawyer I have ever had. Honestly, he returns all my calls on the hour and has a reasonable price. Scott and his staff are down to earth people with respect. I have had many lawyers and have always talked down to me or over priced their services. Scott got my divorced finalized as fast and efficient as possible. Thank you Scott and staff.

Absolute Quality
I worked with Scott on my divorce. He is excellent and returns phone calls and emails quickly. I switched lawyers during my divorce not because of Scott but because I didn't know better (didn't realize that the court system is so slow); however, I know he continued to follow my case. He is concerned, personable and truly is a quality man. I work recommend to anyone who is in need an ethical lawyer that gets results.
