In a lapse of judgement I left the scene of a parking lot fender-bender. I was charged with a misdemeanor for fleeing the scene of an accident. As a public schools administrator this could be potentially very embarrassing and could have negative implications for my career.
Scott Sumner was able to successfully plead my case down to a civil infraction which is the equivalent of a traffic ticket. Thanks to Scott I still have a clean criminal record and that is a huge relief! I highly recommend Scott Sumner as an attorney who will know what to do to ensure the most favorable outcome that is possible. I am very grateful I hired him to defend me.

Mr. Sumner was very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful o my wife and I in setting up our estate plan. We initially met with him whereby he reviewed our current status and goals, he asked us about our plans for the future and explained everything in simple terms about estate planning. He gave us homework to compile a list of all assets we owned. We met with him a second time where he presented to us our finalized estate plan in a leather binder an customized to our needs. He explained next steps and always made himself available to answer and follow up questions we had after we left his office.

Scott did an excellent job of preparing my Trust as well as educating me with all the particulars of the document. The process was very comprehensive and covered all aspects of my situation, his knowledge and suggestions were helpful and welcome. His pleasant disposition made it easy to ask questions and discuss any particular concerns relevant to the Trust and my personal circumstances. I now have a comprehensive Estate Plan and can take great comfort in knowing that my desires will be executed as planned.
