I want to begin by thanking you for recently representing my grandson in DuPage and Kane County. I cannot put into words how grateful I am that you were willing to take his case.
My grandson made several bad decisions just after turning 18 years of age which resulted in his arrest. Facing multiple felony and misdemeanor charges, my wife and I were at a loss on how best to help our grandson. After contacting your firm, a good deal of our burdens’ were lifted.
For almost two years, Mr. Kent worked on my grandson’s behalf. Dealing with aggressive prosecutors, guiding us thru numerous court proceedings and appearances, and answering all of our questions. Due to your firm’s efforts, the felony charges were reduced. Although my grandson is currently doing minimal jail time, the potential outcome could have been far worse.
My family and I will forever be grateful. Thank you Julie, Mr. Martin and Mr. Kent.

Scott basically gave us 3 free consultations over an issue. Never acted like we were bothering him, gave us great advice and was extremely warm about it. Seems like a fantastic attorney and an even better guy. Thanks Mr. Kent...appreciate it.

I didn't need representation but just advice about a domestic violence case.I told Mr. Kent I was willing to pay for the advice but he happily just gave it to me.He never made me feel like im just wasting his time and reassured me that there was nothing to fear from what I was planning to do. If ever I get myself in trouble again I would definitely hire his firm. (I previously talked to his partner Mr. Martin, who is equally kind and easy to talk to).I appreciate the fact that they treat you like a person and not a dollar sign.

Mr. Scott Kent is hands down the best lawyer you will ever have. Outside of his outstanding legal help and advice, I can honestly say he's a great friend. Mr. Kent has helped me on a number of cases and I'm telling you, he crushes it. I won't get into specifics about my recent case but I will tell you this. The state gave me a mandatory 180 day jail sentence. ( mandatory ) I serve 15 days. This gentleman is a straight shooter and a true professional, very passionate about what he does. To Scott and everybody at the law office of Martin Kent and Reidy, my family and myself truly thank you all. Sincerely, Brad

Mr. Scott co defended Mr. Niccolai. He was instrumental in researching and documenting the necessary information to help defend Mr. Niccolai. The family was pleased with his professionalism & how the case was handled.

I just got back from a bench trial. My daughter filed charges because I reprimanded her for acting foolishly. Attorney Kent laid out the case for me, told me exactly how it would go down and what the results would be. He was right on every count. I was acquitted!
We were before a female judge. Knowing she would be sympathetic to my daughter, he was very gracious and even tender when cross examining her. At the same time, he didn't pull any punches. Although I got a lecture from the judge, she had to dismiss the case because it had no merit.
Scott did a great job and I would recommend him highly.

When I was pulled over and charged with my second DUI, I was terrified. My first conviction came from when I was freshly 21 and quite stupid, and I've always regretted that decision. This being my second scared the living daylights out of me. I had no idea what would happen in the future, how this would affect me, or what kind of consequences there would be - but I knew if it was anything like the first time, I was in for a long, painful process. I was referred to Martin & Kent by a family friend and Scott immediately put me at ease, and took all (er, most) of the worry off of my shoulders and onto his and Tim's. Unfortunately, if you're ever in this kind of situation, there's no way you'll feel better until it's all said and done, but it's a great feeling to know you're not alone anymore. I didn't call any other lawyers because he gave me the reassurance and piece of mind I was looking for. Also, in terms of costs, they are in line with any other attorney in the DuPage area. Trust me - I went with a cheap lawyer the first time I needed to do this, and it did not turn out well. After my initial court hearing, Tim Martin (Scott's partner) said he'd like to bring it to a bench trial - which was great! I actually had a chance to beat this thing! This past Friday, Scott joined me in court for what turned out to be a four hour trial, and continuously impressed me. He argued about things that I would never have begun to think about. I understand that this is his job, and something he knows how to do very well, but you'll never understand the level of thoroughness, intelligence and fight in Scott until you see him working and fighting for you. When I have gone to court in the past, and even at the trial, everyone in the room makes you feel like a non-human. The states attorney, judge, and everyone else present will often look at you and judge you as a criminal. When I had Martin & Kent with me, there was finally someone who believed me and stood up for me. Throughout the process, I was honest, punctual, and polite as I could possibly be, which helped my case. As long as you can fulfill your duties, they will come through for you. I ended up being found not guilty for the DUI charge and was only given a speeding ticket and court supervision - which Scott even brought down to only 6 months! I can not express how thankful I am for his expertise and persistence. Scott and Tim, you're both fantastic at what you do! Thank you!

I was in a bind and needed help from a lawyer. I called many lawyers, even some who were recommended, only to be told that the charge I had could not be lowered. I called Scott and he immediately called the prosecutor and I had the court date within a week. Scott reassured me that it would all be taken care of and it was. Don't waste your time calling anyone else if you need help. Scott will make you feel at ease and he will get the job done for you.
