Scott obtained the result I was seeking, but during the process I had to reach out to his office repeatedly for updates. I would like to have seen them proactively communicate with me through the process. Even when I called and expressed a desire to get an update in a week, I could hear that wouldn't happen. Perhaps better automation could help with manage customer relationships?

I have used Scott on at least 15 speeding tickets over the past of 15 years or so. Their service is second to none. He has even handle a Possession of Paraphernalia ticket for my son. As soon as I get a ticket I take a picture of it and send it to them. They handle it. They take the head ache out of my speeding tickets and keep my driving record clean.

They were very informative and professional. Kept me updated on what I needed to do. Attorney showed up earlier than the others for my case and had fewer clients so I felt more comfortable with his attention. Got my speeding ticket dismissed.

I contacted Markowitz Law firm for a traffic ticket. Scott and his staff were very quick to respond. Scott explained in detail the process and was very honest about the outcome. The process was seamless and my ticket was dismissed.
I requested his services on a different case, the case was dropped and Scott returned my retainage fee.
I am very impressed with Markowitz Law Firm. In my experience, they have handled themselves with integrity and professionalism.

Long story short, i was issued a citation i did not agree with at all. I did not want the city of houston to extort even a penny of my money.
I called 5 different attorneys before reaching out to Markowitz. The staff there was amazingly professional, understanding, compassionate, quick to respond and follow up with information. They charged WAY less than all the other attorneys (one wanted $300 alone), and agreed with my plight that the ticket was unfair.
They walked me through the whole process of getting the ticket dismissed, but without giving me false hope, which was incredibly professional!
If you want an attorney who actually cares about their clients, handles business in a quick and professional manner while still being compassionate, then stop reading and hire these guys!
Are you still reading this?? Do it!

I definitely do not recommend these guys. To sum it up they are useless and are of no help at all. After consulting with them about my traffic ticket I agreed to they're offer and paid $200 I was being reassured I would not spend another dime besides the court fees on the day of court. Well on the day of court I arrive and looked to be a pretty quick one which it was as there were only about 12 of us but we were all represented by one guy besides noticing we all pretty much had gotten different attorneys. Well I spoke with a guy sitting next to me and questioned him about his experience with his attorney which he tells me he paid much less then I did for the same exact case and we both got the same results. I paid $200 to the prosecutor which was absurd after being told by the office staff I wouldn't pay much just for the court fees only. I suggest to make sure you check your options and compare as many to get the best bang for your buck but I personally don't recommend this firm.

I've been using Scott any time I've gotten a ticket since the late 90's and yesterday was the last time I will ever use his services. The attorney showed up late, seemed to be drunk, didn't understand what my ticket violation was and then got me an "offer" that was more than if I had just paid the ticket outright on top of the "legal fees" I paid for his services. It's sad that a place that used to be a staple for getting tickets dismissed has now devolved into being a yes man with (likely) kickbacks to the court.

It's always hard to trust what you read on websites, but Scott proved this was to the contrary. This was my first ticket, and a multiple citation too! After days of research, you realize that there are only a handful of traffic lawyers that pop up, and Markowitz is consistently in the first page of Yelp! Houston, Avvo and KHOU (yes, people, Scott has provided an interview). I show up at his Richmond Ave office, just to 'verify authenticity', and his assistant promptly greets me, quickly allays my fears about the citation. After providing my details, she assures me that Scott will get the court date reset and send to me the new court date. True to words, this came in an email first 5 days later and followed up with a hardcopy letter after that, true professional. 6 days before my court date, you'll get a friendly phone call reminding you about court, where to park, what to dress and what to do on that day. This calms the nerves. On the day itself, Scott's team of lawyers (one of them) will call out your name to confirm representation. They are very businesslike and professional, very transparent about their recommendations and our options as a client. I was out of there in 2.5 hrs, dismissal in hand - that, to me is the experience you want as a client. Sometimes, you need a little nudge in the right direction, just don't attempt to do it without Scott's advice.

I don't know how this attorney and staff know when to reschedule so the ticketing officer does not show up, but they did with my three moving violations. The cost of his services were the best deal I have had in a long time. I was met with two different firm attorneys as they explained the court process. Basically, I just set in the courtroom for a few hours and my case was dismissed.
