Excellent for Business needs and personal
We have known Scott for awhile and he was always there for us in the past and just recently. Very knowledgeable and goes that extra mile for you. Scott treats you almost like a family member with concern and always listened to our thoughts and what we needed to know. Scott is number one in our book!

Excellent Service
I needed help completing an ancillary probate. I am fortunate that I found Scott Meier. He knew exactly what I needed to do. I had to deal with several lawyers in several states concerning my father's and mother's estate, and Scott was the best. Scott was the most helpful and knowledgeable about Wyoming probate I have ever met. He is very friendly and responsive. His assistant Holly did an excellent job writing the documents. Thank you Scott and Holly.

Review of my experience with Scott Meier's talents as attorney
Scott has a unique blend of talent, friendliness, commitment and humor which makes doing business with Scott a pleasure. I appreciate his commitment to customer service - he has always made me feel like I am his only client! His education as both a C.P.A. AND an attorney make him uniquely qualified to provide excellent, relevant advice. I always felt that Scott really CARES for his friends and clients!

Will be moving away.
Scott is nice enough but in short he falls way short of our expections for which we are paying. He has demonstrated to us that he either does not listen or does not care about us as clients, if the latter is true I would prefer he be honest with us. Emails sent take weeks before receiving a response. Emails recently received about business renewals, contain no information from him about what needs to be done by us. There is no request or offer to meet with us to discuss our next steps, rather it would appear from lack of infomation that he is expecting us to do what we thought we are paying him for. The billing of accounts is illegible and confusing. One does not know how much Is owed based on the statements received. Never seen such a poor way of keeping books. Unfortunately, this puts us in the position of interviewing a replacement and we would not recommend him to newbies.

Response from Scott Meier November 6, 2014
I wish the client had contacted me concerning issues of correspondence and/or billing. Since I have no way of identifying the author of the comment, I have no way of ascertaining the veracity of the claim, but we will strive to improve on those areas.
