Motor vehicle accident
Scott and everyone is that office are amazing caring people. 10/10 would recommend. They cared so much about me. They responded to emails within just a couple hours with any questions I had. Kept me updated regularly. Only have good things to say about them

I came to Scott's office very skeptical of attorneys due to more than 1 previous encounters with hiring an attorney. I'm sure Scott saw me as a challenge although I believe my case was relatively simple because liability on the other persons part was never in question. Scott and his staff worked with me throughout the process and we eventually settled my case and he restored my faith in attorneys once again. Should I ever have a need for his services again I would not hesitate to hire him. Not to mention refer others to him for representation to someone else. Thanks Scott

My personal injury case
After being in a car accident, I went to two separate attorneys and both of the attorneys told me that they felt the case was too insignificant and therefore they could not help me. I then went to Scott Hoy, who was very positive and helpful with my case. Scott did say that because the impact that happened to my car was minor, that it would take more time and effort but he would do what he could to help me. It did take several years but Scott did not give up and we were awarded a settlement. I am so grateful to Scott for his help and also to his staff and his wife. I felt very comfortable talking to them about the issues in regard to my case. I would highly recommend Scott Hoy for anyone needing an excellent attorney. That you, Scott!

Scott is honest and hard working. While you are healing and recovering from your injury he is hard at work compiling information to help you with your case. He will contact insurance companies and doctors. He helped us in so many ways, and we really appreciated his care and compassion.

Sincerity and support
I cannot say enough about the way Scott and everyone involved worked to understand the uniqueness of my case. His real desire to know my story so that he could communicate it in the courtroom was far beyond my expectations. The comfort and support from the whole staff created a real feeling of safety in a difficult time.
