Ken Scott is an amazing attorney!
Ken Scott represented my family business in a lawsuit that I considered to be frivolous by a person that had way too much money to burn. His approach was well crafted, his stance was unwavering, and his style was hard yet professional. Ken has a strong presence and a witty personality. He has a solid integrity, is a truly honest person, and is a talented litigator who kept my family pushing toward a common goal cutting through the emotion. He's well prepared and a bulldog in court, understanding how to read a room and the politics at play in the courthouse; he knows when to push and when to pass. Ken supported us for almost an entire year; he saved our family business and my sanity; and I owe him double what I paid. Thanks to Ken's legal actions and the path he took, he is now only just a great friend of mine!

Excellent Attorney
I met Mr. Scott when he was hired by our insurance company to represent our firm in a law suit that we had nothing to do with. He not only got us out of the suit, he saved us future risk expense and I liked his professionalism and style so much that I hired him for our firm and personally. He's been exceptional in all he's done for us.
