WILLIAM V. SCAZZERO received his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science in 2007, from the University of North Texas, in Denton, where he was a member of Phi Alpha Delta, the UNT chapter of a national Pre-Law Honors Society.

While at SMU, he was elected first Vice President, and then President of the SMU Chapter of the Federalist Society.

only the best...
Without doubt counselor Scazzero reflets the best of the legal profession. His academic credentials are impressive coupled with superb communication skills. As a novice client, I felt confident and reassured with him, and his team, as my guide thru an unfamiliar legal landscape. I give him and his team my highest recommendation and wish future clients the good fortune to experience his sage council and advice.

What a class act
William was there for me when no one else was willing to be, and for that I will be forever grateful. His attention to detail and his genuine demeanor were nothing like I’ve ever gotten from another lawyer before. He walked me through every step, and then some. I don’t think I will ever hire another lawyer other than him ever again.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with him and his team. I would highly recommend and will continue to use William and his firm in the future. Don't hesitate to give him a call!

Glad he is on my side.
If you need legal representation in the Dallas Fort Worth area choose attorney William Scazzero. He is hard working, honest, experienced, talented and professional. You will be glad he is on your side.

William 'Billy' Scazzero was a lifesaver! We had an issue with an oil/gas company regarding a recent sale of our property. He was prepared, prompt, and polite. I cannot speak highly enough of his work and advice. He's a 'straight shooter,' and, in Texas that is possibly the highest compliment bestowed upon an individual. We cannot thank him enough! We as a family have collectively decided he is going to be our attorney for anything/everything, we feel lucky to have found him through our oil and gas issue.
