About me

Law Office of Scott David Stewart

I am an experienced attorney in Phoenix Arizona and I focus my law firm on 3 areas of the law; Divorce and Family Law, Criminal Law and Bankruptcy.

Family Law

Whether you're facing a divorce, custody battle, or spousal support hearing, facts and information are crucial to supporting your case and protecting your rights.  If your spouse has hidden money in bank accounts you never knew existed or suffers from an addiction that could put your children at risk, you need a divorce lawyer who can expose and collect facts important to your case. The Family law attorney's at the Law Offices of Scott David Stewart have experience working with experts in financial and investigative matters. Our attorney's have seen just about every kind of scheme and book keeping shell game used to hide information adn we know where to look, how to investigate, and how to identify suspicious behavior.  The Law Offices of Scott David Stewart uses the following kinds of resources in domestic relations cases where additional financial, criminal, or personal information is needed:

Private investigators
Forensic accountants
Data retrieval experts
Hand writing analysts
Background information experts
Exposing Relevant Information

Child custody and visitation can be restricted or denied if a parent has a criminal record, addiction or personal history of mental illness. Likewise, if a parent is involved in a dangerous lifestyle, the court may transfer custody or refuse to grant it.  The divorce attorney's with the Law Offices of Scott David Stewart work with private investigators who uncover unsavory facts about your ex-spouse which pose a danger to your children.

We aggressively protect our clients and refuse to let them be taken advantage of. For more information, contact a family law attorney with the Law Offices of Scott David Stewart today. Located in Phoenix, Arizona, our office represents clients throughout Maricopa County, including Mesa, Chandler, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Glendale, Paradise Valley, Litchfield Park, Tolleson, and El Mirage.
