Personal injury case
I was referred to Mr. Mclemore by a coworker he represented in a personal injury case awhile back and he highly recommended Scott to me if i ever needed representation or consultation for a personal injury case! We’ll when the time arose and I did need representation I reached out to the Mclemore law firm and I was directly put through to Scott and he advised what was going to happen and what to look forward to that was to come down the line as my case started to take shape. The professionalism and courtesy the his staff showed me though this process made me feel welcomed and I was never at any time made to feel like I was just another client! I want to say thank you again to Scott and his staff for there patience and understanding of my case and I was very satisfied with the outcome of my personal injury case !

Mr. McLemore is the very best Lawyer I've ever had Known. Not only is he the Best Attorney in his fields he is extremely professional, Responsive and Trustworthy. I would like to think that over the years and the many legal issue's he has worked for me that we have become freinds outside the professional arena. That being said - I would recommend him for any Legal issue you may have.
