Top Notch
I have retained Scott's representation for contract negotiations and legal services. He is professional and thorough when it comes to the details involved. I highly recommend his services.

Top Notch Lawyer you can Count on
“Good Experiences; Fast Resolutions! I needed some advice on new employee labor laws concerning overtime pay. Scott was responsive and efficient in helping me. I also appreciated that he took time to really understand my set up (which is a bit unconventional) to ensure the bases were covered. You'll never get anything less than a great experience with this attorney. Definitely positive!”

Reliable representation
I have worked with Scott Levitt of Levitt Law for years. I am pleased to report my phone calls have nearly always been answered directly upon my calling. Rarely is there a need to leave a message but when necessary the call is returned promptly. Scott is well informed and advises courses of action that best suit us as his customer. At times his advice eliminates the need for legal representation. Levitt law is reliable at meeting deadlines and commitments. Scott is trustworthy and maintains his customers’ needs as a high priority. It is great to have representation such as Levitt law that you can count on.

Property Tax Reassessment
Scott Levitt assisted me with an appeal of the reassessment of my property taxes in Los Angeles County following deaths in my family. I found him to be very responsive and he explained things in terms that I was able to understand. He was successful in lowering the amount of the reassessment; in fact, following my appeal hearing, the individual who represented the County followed me outside and told me "your lawyer is good"! I would definitely recommend Mr. Levitt!

Seal Beach Lawyer with NY tenacity!
I appreciate Scott very much for fighting for me. He is solid! We had on of those home remodel contractor disputes. Scott is an outstanding lawyer. He was on top of everything and effective. The legal system is what it is. It sucks! You never want to be in the process. But sometimes you have no choice. Thank you Scott very much. I appreciate Scott and will highly recommend your services to anyone in need.

Scott Levitt is strong, knowledgeable and professional.
I've known Scott through his involvement in the community. When the need arose for some legal aid, several people recommend him and his services. After our first meeting I knew that he could provide a solution that we required. Fortunately he was successful and resolved our issue quickly. I would recommend him to my peers anytime.

Very Professional
Mr. Levitt was very timely and was able to execute our lease document with all legal considerations on our behalf. We provided very little details and were very satisfied with the outcome. In addition I have had several conversation regarding construction issues and found Mr. Levitt to be very knowledgable and well prepared to represent us. We look forward to doing business in the future.

Corporate Attorney/Business Sale Advise
Our Corporation uses Scott as our attorney for all necessary corporate reporting and advice. We recently used his firm to help with a proposed sale of our corporation. I found him to be very thorough and extremely helpful in preparing the structure of the sale, the preparation of necessary documents. I would highly recommend his firm to anyone seeking a corporate attorney.

This is what I always expected in a lawyer...
Small town lawyer, big city gravitas. Scott has helped our company with projects ranging from company HR, to real estate, to aviation. He has an ability to connect with his clients by cutting through the clutter, and making the complex easy to understand. He bills fairly, and always stays on point. All of this, while responding to calls and emails with urgency. We feel very fortunate to have Scott representing us.

Specialist in Construction Stock Purchase Negotiations
Scott is one of many lawyers in ProVisors and without a doubt the perfect fit for my situation. He has a background of working with contractors and the law. He provided excellent advice and drafted a stock purchase agreement that got the deal done. I feel confident that as I may need additional help in the legal area of running a construction company that Scott will be there to help.
