My Super Lawyer
One of the smartest people I've run across in my 73 years. Mr Mackenzie kicked tail and took names when he defended me in a frivolous lawsuit filed against me. He totally humiliated the opposing attorney. I wish I had it on video. Scott was incredible.

He won my case!
3 other law firms turned my case down because they said it would be impossible to win. Scott took the case and in 3 months we settled the case! Thank you Scott!!!

Very helpful! Highly recommend
I got in a car wreck 6 months ago and had Scott help me out. He made everything super easy and stress free. He was always available to answer my questions, I am very pleased with how everything turned out and will be recommending Scott to my friends in the future!

A GREAT Attorney!
Scott Mackenzie successfully represented me in an accident where an 18-wheeler cut me off, totaled my car, and caused me injuries in my Cervical intervertebral disc area. He turned down 3 Settlement offers and we settled for $275,000. He is a tough, tenacious pit-bull that doesn't let go of his bite until the offending party surrenders. A SUBPERB Attorney!! Thank you, Scott!

Got outstanding results!
Scott Mackenzie represented my family when my uncle and I decided to go after a huge Attorney firm that had willfully done us wrong. In a sentence.....Fantastic. Scott prevailed for us, and we settled for $500,000. He even drove hundreds of miles and picked up the check. He is a gifted and resourceful Attorney, and if I ever need a great lawyer again, I will be calling him.

Scott did an Amazing job on my husbands cases! Was able to obtain a pre-indictment deal with DA... and get my husband home quickly . My husband is a Veteran with psychological issues and had 3 felony charges. 2 dropped, 1 deferred. If you are looking for an Expedient, dedicated Attorney Scott is whom you should hire. If you don't hire him, you may be doing yourself and family a disservice.... thank you, Scott We could have not had this outcome with out you!

Great advice and representation!
I was arrested for DWI about a year ago. After dealing with Mr. Mackenzie, I am thankful that I chose him as my attorney. He kept me informed every step of the way and did a phenomenal job with explaining the law. Given the circumstances, he got me an amazing deal; for that he will be my attorney for life. I recommend Mr. Mackenzie to everyone I know. If you want great advice and superb representation, hire Mr. Mackenzie!

Tough, honest attorney who's not afraid of the fight
We hired this attorney to handle a family courts issue and he was up against the most dreaded and diabolical firm in Dallas, but he did not shrink back and he beat their TEAM single-handedly on every issue. He stays focused on the issues rather than the rhetoric. He is a real David in the land of Goliaths. I would recommend him for any type of law representation. You can depend on him to stay true and not crumble under pressure or the temptation to be bought off.
