6 year old DUI and bench warrant
I got a DUI in CA back in 2016 and ignored most of what I had to do and moved back to Pennsylvania. Here in 2022 (6 years later...) I was looking to get rid of the bench warrant that was out for me in Cali. After some research I found Scott Dicus online and sent him my info. After a few emails and a quick phone call he was able to coordinate the court hearing, appear on my behalf and get the warrant cleared while also getting the classes I was required to take (but never took - hence the warrant) cleared as well. I was shocked at how easy this process was and am now happy to say when I search my name no warrants come up!

Great Scott!!
Worth his weight in gold. I had a few warrants from 10 years ago. I finally was able to get myself into a position where I could take care of my legal matters. It can be hard to trust someone with your future but Scott handled my cases with care, timelessness. He will fight for you. The reviews are why I signed up. Definitely suggesting him to anyone in the future .

Excellent, Professional, Would Recommend
I faced 2 narcotics possession charges in late 2016. Of all the lawyers I contacted, Scott was the most prompt and re-assuring. Although I was nervous about my case and wanted to know the immediate outcome, Scott kept me grounded by "not wanting to go into hypotheticals", which honestly, was probably the best advice for me. I recieved a fair sentence brokered by Scott. Even when I jeopardized my case by not following through with court orders, Scott was able to keep me out of jail and on the straight and narrow. I've only met him once in person, and he is kind, friendly, basically everything you would want in a lawyer. I would reccomend Scott to anyone in need of a lawyer. His prices are fair (for lawyers, so I have been led to understand), and you definitely get what you pay for. Again, excellent lawyer, I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Easy Expungement, Affordable and its 100% Guaranteed!! Totally worth it.
I had 2 DUI's. One in LA county in 2002 and the other in OC county in 2011. I checked around and Scott's prices were more than reasonable and he gave a 100% guarantee in writing. I decided to hire him and he got them both expunged and was able to email me proof. OC was easy but the LA clerks were a little difficult but he kept following up with the court and keeping me in the loop. Scott also responded quickly to my email questions and he verified that the court records were updated and now I'm good to go if I apply for another job in the future. I highly recommend him if you need an expungement.

Felony expungement
I hired Mr Dicus in 2015 to help with getting a felony expunged that was keeping me from getting employed. I admit it wasn't easy but Mr Dicus kept trying and never gave up. Long story short I proved to the judge I have been rehabilitated. And my prior felony charge was a mistake that I made in my youth. Mr Dicus was always there with answering any questions I had or concerns I would recommend him to anyone that is interested in expungement for employment purposes. I have a career in the trucking industry making good money and I owe it all to Scott Dicus I couldn't be more happy !

Oh my God Scott is truly AMAZING! I called him to see if he could help me. I had a warrant for domestic violence and probation violation for 8 years, two days after meeting with Scott the warrant had been recalled and probation reinstated! Scott is professional and truly cares about your situation. Thank you Scott!

Very professional and helpful
I contacted Scott Dicus in 2012 to help with an expungement process I needed done. Not only that his price was so reasonable, he was also very nice to work with, very responsive and available to all my questions. He kept me well informed and got the job done! He is definitely a "good buy" for his fees. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

He's there to help, even on a Sunday
I had questions regarding my son's probation. Mr. Dicus responded immediately, ON A SUNDAY! I will contact Mr. Dicus in a year and a half when my son's probation is ready for early termination consideration. Thanks for your help!

Mr. Dicus got my felony reduced to a misdemeanor and my firearm rights restored
I have an old felony that has been haunting for about 6 years. I'm self-employed so the conviction has not impacted me professionally, but I have been wanting to take my son hunting as my father did when I was his age. I contacted Scott Dicus who took the time to explain the applicable law, process and the likelihood of my success in getting the felony reduced to a misdemeanor. About one month later we were in court. Mr. Dicus went back to speak with the judge and when he came out the judge had granted my request. I just passed my firearm background check and wanted to come on here and say thank you to Scott Dicus for the time and effort he put into my case. I will be highly recommending his services in the future.

Great lawyer, extremely informative, great prices
I am 26 years old and made a handful of bad decisions about 5-7 years ago. Scott Dicus got 2 of my misdemeanors expunged off my record. I am trying to start a career, and going through backgrounds checks is so stressful knowing employer were going to find mistakes that I had made. Hire Scott to get a peace of mind. He answered questions like he was my friend. If you are scared and looking for someone to trust, put your trust in Scott Dicus. Do not be scared off by the low prices! He gets back to you quickly and there is nothing like having a clean record.

Excellent Attorney
I recently went through a one-sided divorce, and in the beginning, it was very overwhelming and I had no idea how to begin the process. Thankfully, a friend referred me to Mr. Dicus who was very personable and walked me through each step. He was always available to answer my questions and kept me updated on the progress of the case. In the end, my divorce was granted on my terms, and I never even had to set foot in a court room.

Scott and his team were great during the entire process.

Thank you, Scott!
I greatly appreciate the work Scott did for me. He was able to completely terminate my probation early, and erase my felony. He offered great counsel and guided me through the entire legal process painlessly. I highly recommend Scott, for he is well rounded and professional; He will not disappoint!

Very honest and quick
I stumble on Mr. Dicus's website quickly called him and left a message. He gave me a brief consultation over the phone on Friday and on the following Monday the process for getting my record expunged was file on that very day. I'd email him from time to time and he would quickly respond to any questions that I had. He is a very knowledgeable lawyer that answered all my questions as this process was new to me. I am very satisfied with the result as my record is now expunged and I can obtain a better paying job. I would highly recommend Mr. Dicus if you want your record expunged.

Best Attorney
I was lucky in enough to find Scott Dicus when I was looking for an expungement. I had spent months looking for the best attorney to handle my case because it was a little tricky. When I talked to Scott Dicus for the first time he put my mind to ease right away. I was just a little worried about the low price because every other attorney I spoke to were asking for so much money with no guarantees but it turned out very well. Not only is he an experienced attorney but his prices are the most reasonable around. My first time filing for an expungement I was denied but Scott stayed with it the case and was able to bring the proper evidence to clear the entire thing. If you need to clear your record don’t go anywhere else, Scott Dicus has the most experience and the best prices around.

Knowledgeable and Quick
I used Scott for an expungement service and was really happy with the result. Any questions I had were answered by him and he kept me informed and reassured throughout the process. Expunging my record has been helpful in my job search and has made me more confident while looking.

I would recommend his services to anyone who is looking for an attorney.
