Better than Excellent!
Scott was thorough, knowledgeable, intuitive, confident, skillful, and relentless in pursing a recovery for the claim. In addition to his legal talents, his inter-personal skills with clients, witnesses and opposing counsel is more than a plus. We would not hesitate to ask Scott to help us in any legal matter than might face us.

Best Lawyer Ever!!!!
I have known Scott for about 11 years or so and he has been the best lawyer to not only me but my family. Scott has been everything and if he couldn't help he always lead us in the right direction. I would recommend him to any and everybody. He always allows you to walk away from any situation with a smile on your face. Love Love Love my lawyer, I refuse to go else where unless he sends me in another lawyer's direction. Thank you so much Scott for being a great lawyer!!!
