Excellent Representation
I hired Scott Mann to represent me in a contentious divorce. My husband hired duel attorneys however Scott’s professionalism & legal knowledge secured the desired outcome of my case. I highly recommend him.

An excellent attorney
I have worked with Scott over the years, and am currently working with him on a very challenging case. He represents his clients well, and also works well with fellow lawyers and other professionals.

I never really felt like he was on my side
I recently hired Scott to assist with my divorce case. Throughout the entire process, I never really felt like he was on my side. It felt like he talked down to me many times, and it seemed as though he would wait for the other attorney to submit something, and then send it to me to review and respond. I found it difficult to navigate this divorce, because it felt like I had nobody on my side. Then came the $10,000 bills from Scott, totalling over $65,000. When I questioned what these bills were for, and what work he had done for me, he fired me about a month before my court date leaving me without counsel during my trial. I felt like my case was just a means to an end for him, and that he was more interested in prolonging the length of my case to generate more money, and the second I started questioning why it was costing so much he bailed on me. I wouldn't recommend this lawyer to anyone seeking a legal representative who truly has their best interests at heart. I believe it's crucial for a lawyer to have a strong client-attorney relationship built on trust and transparency, and in my experience, that simply wasn't the case.

Response from Scott Mann February 6, 2023
At MannTuckerMuir, we strive to give each client superlative service and attention, and a highly professional experience, and we are always sorry to learn that someone did not have an excellent experience with our representation. We always appreciate the opportunity to discuss any concerns a client may have had with our representation, and would encourage this reviewer to contact us directly. We always send a survey for the client to have the opportunity to review our service and to help us improve, so we are not afraid of criticism and are always appreciative of client feedback, whether positive or, as it is here, negative. We recognize that a divorce is never easy for our clients and that they frequently may be angry or frustrated with the legal process, their spouse, or opposing counsel, and that sometimes means we also bear the brunt of that frustration and anger, which is why we always take time to carefully explain to each of our clients how the process works, what we can and cannot realistically do in their specific situation, and proactively try to resolve their case as quickly, quietly and inexpensively as is possible under their unique circumstances. We pride ourselves at listening carefully to the concerns of every client and understand that divorce can be very emotional for anyone going through that process. Thank you for your feedback.

Worthless
Scott Mann did as little as possible in my divorce case. Never read my emails fully. Did not respond to the questions in my correspondence. I basically did my divorce myself, got no guidance or direction, and was charged a fortune.
