Sincere and Trustworthy
I recently retired with over 50 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. During that time I worked with Mr. Atkinson to solve both technical as well as mineral lease problems. I found him to be sincere and trustworthy, always concentrating on the problem at hand until a professional solution is obtained. I would not hesitate to use his professional services if the need for his experience arose. He will go the extra mile.

Great Attorney
Scott is great and very knowledgeable! I would recommend him 100%. He is helpful with all questions and gets back to you in a timely manor. I had no idea what steps to take in the probate process and he helped and guided me the whole way. I would definitely recommend him to any friends or family.

Fantastic Personal Injury Lawyer!
I have worked with Scott for almost eleven years now, and I have never come across another attorney who cares so much about the outcome for his clients. Especially in personal injury cases, Scott shows compassion, integrity, great knowledge and perseverance. I would highly, highly recommend him to anyone who has the need for an intelligent, caring attorney.

Scott goes above and beyond for his clients!
I've used Scott for several cases, all of which were handled with absolute knowledge and professionalism. He is very responsive to emails and telephone calls, and clearly communicates in terms non-attorneys can understand. I would highly recommend him!

Probate
Mr. Atkinson was hired in January of 2014 to assist me with my mother in-law's estate who passed away in early January of 2014. I was assigned as the personal representative and Scott has been fantastic to work with throughout this difficult case. What should have been a simple probate case turned into a case that has lingered on too long and has cost more than it would have if family members hadn't been contesting petty issues. Don't misunderstand, Scott has been worth every penny and more! He has the utmost integrity and professionalism. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Piece of mind
Scott helped me prepare my will, and revise it as necessary. It was complex, but Scott made it simple and answered all my questions as we moved forward. I feel much better now having my will in place, and knowing that my wishes will be carried out accordingly. I'll be using Scott again should I need his services in the future.

No Question this is the attorney for you
my father was killed in a horrific car accident in 10/2011. my experience with Scott was beyond expectation. He was constantly in contact with me and always a step ahead of the apposing council which made this process smooth during our time of loss. He worked very hard to ensure we received the best settlement. I have no reservation about recommending Scott for any legal needs.
