I learned about Scott from another satisfied client. He (and his staff) did an excellent job for my child custody case from beginning to end. I didn't really know what to expect, but I cannot imagine anyone being able to do a better job. Friendly, knowledgeable, easy to work with, and he really cared about the outcome for me and my children.

I hired Scott as my divorce attorney several years back and while no one wants to have to get to this place, I was so happy to have him in my corner.
He was extremely professional, smart, kind, and sensitive to hardship and feelings that go hand in hand with divorce. Scott was also extremely sensitive to my now ex-husbands feelings as well. Always making sure that we tried to work together and not against one another.
He made sure that we went through all avenues good, bad and ugly. He made sure that we were making the right choices for our children and their best interest. He gave me great, solid advice that sometimes I didn't always want to hear, but knew he was absolutely right.
I trusted him 100% and still do to this day. He was grossly important in making sure that we used our PC and walked me through all the decisions that were made by them again, even when I didn't like the answer.
Scott and his staff were beyond professional and I am absolutely certainly that he always had my best interest in hand. He was timely and efficient, he listened and always gave good sound advice. He always returned my calls, emails, even when he was very busy. He was dedicated and most importantly, I knew that he cared about my case and my family.
Divorce can certainly be a nasty, hard and sensitive subject and he helped me, my kids and my now ex-husband get to a place that we didn't really expect when the process started.
I would absolutely recommend Scott and his staff. Not only did I have a great attorney, but I also have a really great friend who helped me through one of the toughest times.
I am really very grateful for his professionalism, smarts and kindness.

Scott is an outstanding attorney. Scott has assisted me with legal matters since October, 2009. He is both kind and realistic. He has a unique way of speaking the truth and being direct without being harsh. He provides options and resources and has guided me to make appropriate decisions based on my circumstances. He tailors his approach to his clients needs, values and priorities and doesn't have a on-size-fits all mentality. Scott is also very good at listening to my goals and helping me formulate the best strategy to achieve those goals.
I met Scott during a very painful, vulnerable chapter in my life, and he was my anchor. He helped me stay grounded and focus on what was most important, my children. He helped me set my own emotions aside and explained my legal options in terms that were easy to understand. He then worked through those options with me and advocated on my behalf.
Scott has a no-nonsense approach and an impressive understanding of the law which he is often able to recite at will. :) He was respectful of both my time and resources, and he negotiated a very successful outcome for my case.
I recommend Scott without reservation. He is a competent, direct, ethical attorney who really knows the law and will passionately advocate on your behalf.
