I have hired a few lawyers in my life so I can state that Bill Scott was and is by far, the worst lawyer I have ever used. Never prepared. Over billed and a total screwup. I had to take over my own case in order to win it. A woman in the courtroom told me that I did a better job than my lawyer. And I did. He turned my life into a hell until I finally got rid of him.

Main complaints: Completely unprepared! Arrogant beyond belief! Over billing/hour padding was a constant hassle although I didn’t catch it until a few months in. He even billed me for continuances due to his schedule issues or his being unprepared. You must watch him carefully! He runs off his ego not skill, or hard work. We were supposed to set up depositions, and he blew them off. His excuse was oh, I forgot, but we won’t need them anyway. When before the judge it was as if he knew very little about the case. He might have been talented once, but that apparently has long past. Definitely not an attorney worth employing! Truly one of the most morally bankrupt attorneys I have ever come across. He is what gives attorneys a bad rap! Again, if you have a case that likely will go to hearing, run from this attorney. He will make your life an even worse nightmare! You’ll pay a lot for him and then more for another attorney to fix the mess he’ll leave you in.

I have known Mr. Scott for several years and had one opportunity to deal with him as an opposing counsel. He is thorough, knows the law, represents his client's interests well, and is unfailingly polite. His clients are well served.
