Divorce
Scott was exceptional, really courteous and helpful on all aspects of the divorce. He walked me through the process and I thought going into the courtroom we were fully prepared.

Professional and Trustworthy
Scott is very professional, honest and down-to-earth. He does not hesitate to tell it like it is and make recommendations based on facts and experience. He is quick to communicate and respond. He was able to help me through a difficult divorce and again with another issue tied to the divorce a few months later. I believe Scott cares about his clients and I would not hesitate to recommend him or use him again.

Straightforward and responsive. Reliable and trustworthy.
Scott Russell is a true professional. I walked into his office for our initial consultation full of questions and anxiety regarding my impending divorce. My stress was quickly alleviated within moments of beginning our consultation. Scott answered all of my questions and fully prepared me with reasonable expectations of the outcome. Throughout the process, I was continually impressed by the effective communication and responsiveness received by him and his staff. In dealing with the most difficult time of my life, I know with certainty that I could not have been better represented. I've recommended Scott to several people and he apparently treats everyone with this level of professionalism and respect. Can't say enough great things about this attorney...he is the attorney to meet. I used to think attorneys had a bad reputation but this changed my view! I know he has represented at least 4 of my friends and know that they were all very happy with his representation! 5 stars aren't nearly high enough for this level of service!!

Very professional
Scott is an excellent lawyer that goes beyond the "typical" expectations. From day one, I felt comfortable with him and his staff. He is extremely professional, but personal, too. Divorce is never easy- especially when there are children involved- however, he handled the case with respect and true commitment. He was both prompt and clear with his responses and explanations. From start to finish, Scott handled my case with professionalism, care, and respect.

Earned my trust and friendship
I appreciate Scott taking a personal interest in my case during my traumatic divorce. His professionalism and relationships provided a solid platform for me when my life felt like 'shifting sands'. The divorce is not what I wanted, but his guidance provided a path forward to protect my interests. He is thorough, diligent, patient, networked and knowledgable. I am thankful for his service.
