The best lawyer!!
What else could I say but that Scott Palmer is our hero! We had a family member that did something stupid and became involved in a legal situation that required an attorney. At first we didn't know where to turn until we were put in contact with a person who knew someone that had been in a similar situation. We were told that Scott had gotten them the "deal of the century". We contacted Scott and from the very beginning he began to make us aware of the consequences of what had happened and explained what he would try to do. He made us aware of things that we had no clue about and was genuinely interested in the case. We met him and walked away convinced we had contacted the right man for the job. He showed real interest in the case and kept us informed all along the way telling us what was going on and what he was doing. In the end he resolved the case with the best possible outcome available (and it was the best outcome.) HE WAS GREAT! I'd give him 100 stars if I could. He was just the best and I will be forever grateful for what he did for us!

Highly recommend!
I could not have been more pleased with the outcome and experience I have received from Scott Palmer and his associates! I was charged with a Third degree Felony! I thought my life was over! Period!! I hired Scott Palmer and his team he worked very hard hard and was able to reduce the charges to a state jail felony, again I thought my life was over again…He thought up a plan and through hard work and dedication of he and his team he was able to reduce a Third Degree Felony down to a misdemeanor with only probation! I cannot tell you how highly I recommend this law firm. His firm was recommended to me, and now I am recommending them to you! Hope you have as good of an outcome as I did!!

Best Lawyer in DFW/TX
Mr. Palmer was very informative and thorough guiding me through my case. I initially went for a consultation but his professionalism and tentativeness made me hire him immediately. I had a misdemeanor case expunged thanks to him and his firm. As a client, they made the process very clear during the whole procedure, and I knew what to expect during each step. Could not recommend a better, more experienced lawyer than Scott Palmer.

Works MAGIC
Scott Palmer law is the best law firm in Dallas to work MAGIC for you. Their well-known reputation and hard work got my theft charge COMPLETELY DROPPED, despite all of the evidence against me (a lot!). They were also able to remove my third degree FELONY for possession of a controlled substance, and let me tell you, it was not for marijuana. I was arrested for a felony and theft charge later on, and walked away with only short term PROBATION because of the dedication and savvy of Storage Huff at Scott Palmer law. She made my case her personal mission, and went out of her way to remind me of court dates and have them tailored to MY work schedule. Being a single working mom, I needed a little extra help keeping up with court paperwork and dates and she was there for me. Now I can still work in any career field that I want to pursue WITHOUT OBSTACLES! Thank you, Scott Palmer Law!

Only the Best!
Five years ago, in November of 2016, a big red truck smashed into my 3 month old car pushing it up over a curb causing 10k in damages. Although I was shaken up, I did not sustain much physical harm. It was suggested to me to contact Scott Palmer Law Group. This decision proved to be one of the best decisions that I have ever made. The aforementioned accident settled out of court fairly quickly with the TX Farm Bureau Insurance. Unbelievably, 10 months later, a young man flew in front of me in an intersection totalling the same car and sending me to the hospital in an ambulance! This wreck caused me 20k in medical bills and permanent bodily injuries. Allstate Insurance wanted to give me 8k for the entire settlement! I think the phrase goes something like, “I’ll see you in court!”. Four years and four months later, we did just that. My court case was recently heard on November 15th, 2021. The purpose of this review is to sing the praises of the man who represented me, Mr. Grant Gerleman from Scott Palmer Law. After the trial was over, on the trip back home to the Austin area from the courthouse north of Dallas, a myriad of affectionate accolades and adjectives were flying from my heart out of my mouth about this Grant person. Even though I had met Grant during the deposition nearly two years ago, this was the first time I had seen him in action representing me in court. While the jury was out deliberating, I wrote Grant a note which said something like, ‘Regardless of the outcome, you are doing an absolutely fabulous job’ and that I appreciated him. Well, I am pleased to report that the outcome was gloriously in my favor. For the entirety of our time in court, Mr. Gerleman was cool, calm, and collected. He was amazingly prepared, articulate, strategic, and smart. He moved and spoke with such ease and confidence, but was unassuming and humble with his delivery. His interaction with me was kind, sweet, and compassionate. I believe there was no way the members of the jury could dismiss or not believe every word he spoke. There is no doubt in my mind that Grant Gerleman lives and breathes to help people. I truly believe he is Divinely gifted in so many areas of his being. I am extremely blessed to have had him not only represent me in court, but to be the catalyst in getting me my due justice. The last time I spoke to Mr. Palmer, I thanked him for being excellent. In any situation with a leader or head of a group, company, church, family, etc. everything flows from the top. Everyone that I had dealings with at this law group were always striving for excellence which of course, comes down from their leader, Scott Palmer. I sadly say that I hope I never need Scott, Grant, Norma, Shelly and the rest of the team at this law group again, because I never want to have another accident. However, if you EVER need an attorney to represent you for personal injury anywhere in Texas...put this # in your phone NOW…214.987.4100. You’ll thank me and be glad you did. Thanks for your time.

Wonderful Experience
I can explain how great a job Scott Palmer and his team did for me. They were able to have the felony case against me dismissed! I would recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal advice and council.

Knowledgeable, Personable, Responsive, and Effective
Having a loved one falsely accused of a crime is one of the loneliest and most helpless feelings in the world. Finding myself in this situation, both confused and overwhelmed with anxiety, I reached out to Scott. What I found was someone who not only responded to me immediately (and on a Saturday no less!), but who also expressed genuine concern and personally walked me through the steps to resolve our situation, offering assurances even prior to my becoming a client! This level of care is not just a professional courtesy but rather it speaks volumes about his personal sense of compassion. When we finally met with the team, I found them to be highly knowledgeable and strategic in their approach. They were transparent about the steps they would take in the process and offered no outrageous guarantees, other than their own hard work on our behalf. Needless to say, I am beyond pleased with the lifesaving results the team was able to produce. After months of sleepless nights and days filled with trepidation, Scott and his team have restored our peace. If you or your loved one's freedom is on the line, Scott is absolutely the first person you should call. You'll be glad you did.

SORSHA HUFF IS AN INCREDIBLE AND PASSIONATE ATTORNEY !
I might want to thank Ms. Sorsha and her whole team in helping me with my criminal case. What would i be able to state, She did all the research she can particularly considering my Immigration concerns and conveyed the best recommendations she could. She comprehended my circumstance very well than some other attorneys I talked previously and this is the main part for any client who anticipates a decent assistance. She reacted positive and brief whenever we talked via phone and this made my life simple. She is straight forward and consistently hit me up with what I have mentioned for. My whole case was wreck and she did handled it cautiously which was helpful for me and my family both. She attempted to astonish my DUI case however much that she could knowing the realities we had on the plate and I am happy with the legitimate assistance gave. She aways made a stride further in gathering the data and deliberately handled both Criminal and Immigration matter. Dallas is a major city with numerous attorneys, But a GOOD LAWYER is in every case hard find and she is one of them for me. Thanks for the whole team for supporting me through this.

Legal Miracle Worker
When I had a very unique case that no one else was willing to represent me for, Mr. Palmer not only lent his legal expertise but also went out of his way to keep me updated as the case unfolded. He really went the extra mile, going as far as accompanying me to the county jail and helping me with the bond when I had to turn myself in. His legal team was very welcoming and understanding, and I am incredibly grateful to have had them on my side throughout the stressful ordeal. If you're having legal trouble and need somebody who knows their stuff, look no further. It's money well spent, you won't regret it!

Treats you like family
In two words, phenomenal experience. If your life has been shattered and your world in chaos, this is exactly the type of customer experience you would want from an attorney, but surprisingly most won’t expect. I got a free initial consultation where I got a very genuine, understanding yet honest assessment of my case. I immediately felt like I had someone in my corner, willing to fight for me no matter what. I think in a situation where there is potential jail time, or a criminal charge on your record, the most important thing on your mind is who’s really going to treat you like family and get you off the hook or the best possible outcome. This was certainly my experience. A few hours after my initial call, the lead attorney and owner of the law firm personally called me to go over the case in further detail and compare to similar cases. Without promising me anything, he put me at ease. Throughout the process I had regular text and phone communication, even late into the evening. Ultimately they got my case rejected and it wasn’t even filed and prosecuted by the D.A. Highly, highly recommend! I consider Scott Palmer a friend, have him saved in my phone and will be the first person I call if future legal issues ensue. Don’t hesitate on this, it’s a no brainer!

Surprised
I’m charged with a felony I didn’t commit and after I was extradited from my state back to Texas he had me out and on a plane in 25 hours after arriving. And the bond was lowered from 50k to 10 k on a Saturday no less which I have never heard of being done before. Thx Scott and your team as well, my wife and I appreciate that.

Best Lawyer and staff in Dallas
Scott Palmer is the greatest lawyer in the Dallas area hands down!! Scott has been working with my case for over a year now. I was at ease when he explained the process, and once in court I knew I wouldn’t have to worry. He’s determination to represent me exceeded my expectations. He never backed down, and was always on top of everything. Anytime I needed clarification in the process, he was there for me at any given time. My case was dismissed thanks to him, and his awesome team! I highly recommend Scott and his law firm for any representation needed, you won’t be disappointed at all!

Best Lawyer sent from the Angel superhuman.
I can’t even explain in words how Scott Palmer saved me. Let me just state I was charge with a F1 and was hopeless about my future life family etc, But then Scott and his team put the magic touch to have my case dismissed. That wasn’t everything, the fact he got it dismissed it on the date I could have been paying trial fees says a lot about his character and put his client first before any monetary gains. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact them no better lawyer in Dallas. This people are their to fight for you until the end. From bottom of my heart I thank the whole team and staff from Scott Palmer Law Office. I’m now living stress free and back to my normal routine for first time in years. Thank you. you guys are a blessing from the sky.

Scott / Rebekah helped get my life back
I hired Scott / Rebekah when a single stupid mistake could of easily changed my life forever. Having a very heavy charge hanging over my head and not a clue where to begin, Scott/Rebekah helped guide me through exactly what to expect and how to proceed from day one. Scott and Rebekah are not ones to beat around the bush, they tell it how it is which provided me a clear picture of what was to occur in the coming months. Rebekah (who is a former prosecutor) helped me understand how a prosecutor would act in my case and what the state expected of me to ensure no further mistakes would be committed. Over several months Scott and Rebekah were very attentive to my questions and general anxiety regarding my case. Without them, I don't know where I would be and am very thankful for how things turned out. I was able to get the best possible outcome in a very bad situation which is why I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking help.

Scott is an angel. Seriously. From my initial consult and through the entire process he was supportive, knowledgeable, professional and extremely patient. If you're looking for a GREAT lawyer, look no further. Hopefully, I'll never need his services again, but if I do I know he'll take care of me!

Great Defender
When I hired Scott Palmer to defend my federal case in 2016 I did not realize what this man would come to mean to me. Having never been involved with federal litigation I was terrified at what might happen. Throughout the entire time of my ordeal he was by my side. During a time of great uncertainty as to how everything would turn out he assuaged my fears and kept informed of options. Scott educated me on the laws pertaining to my case and what he believed was the best direction to take. He vociferously and successfully defended me during my pre-trial sentencing which allowed my continued employment. My confidence and faith in his ability to defend me against unsurmountable odds was never stronger. Although my case resulted in incarceration, he negotiated the best deal available. I'm forever grateful to Scott and his team for taking my case and caring for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for criminal defense. I am forever indebted to him.

Attorney/Client Gives Scott Palmer Highest Recommendation
As an attorney the highest recommendation I can give any attorney is to hire them to represent me in my own case, which I did with Scott Palmer. One thing that I have learned over the past 20-plus years of practicing law is that all attorneys are not created equal. Prior to being falsely accused of a crime I had never spoken with Scott Palmer and only knew of him by reputation. I have a relative who is a former law enforcement officer who had dealt with Scott Palmer during litigation involving his department. He was very impressed with Mr. Palmer even though they were on different sides of the litigation (Scott Palmer sued my relative and his department). He gave Scott Palmer his highest recommendation. After a tremendous amount of research, investigation, and legal briefing Scott Palmer got the charge against me dropped and my case dismissed. You do not always get what you pay for but in Scott Palmer’s case you do. He was money well spent and I would do it again without hesitation.
