I hired Scott for an employment matter and am very glad I did. From the start he listened intently, asked great questions, was easy to work with and understanding. It was clear from the start that he understood my case and believed in it, and was willing to work hard to get the outcome that was best for me. I'm very happy with the settlement we reached and could not have done this without his help.

Scott is a wonderful attorney. After speaking with him even once, you can tell his level of expertise is second to none. His knowledge of employment law is impeccable. When hired he was prompt to assist with my wage claim. I never had to worry about a thing. He was explanative to the point you knew exactly what was coming next. In my case my wage claim was handled extremely well and would refer him to anyone I know. Great attorney!

I had a difficult situation with an ex-employer who was not keeping the terms of an employment agreement. Scott took the time to thoroughly understand the situation, presented different options to resolve the issue in the most cost effective way, brought the employer to the bargaining table, and negotiated a reasonable compromise without a lengthy and expensive courtroom battle.
Scott was also very conscientious about budget constraints I was dealing with, and made sure that his time was being spent in the most cost effective way. I've used other attorneys who never really discussed the return on investment aspect of their time with much depth, and my experience with Scott was a refreshing change of pace in this regard. I would also suspect he's just as effective and fair when representing an employer as well.
Scott is an attorney that I would recommend without hesitation for anyone involved in an employment dispute or needing arbitration or mediation services.

I am pleased to endorse Scott Cliff. We have shared office space for 5 years and I have observed Scott on a daily basis. We also have collaborated on a few cases, and I have referred clients of mine to him for representation in employment matters. Scott is extremely knowledgeable in employment law and is as fair, diligent and honest a lawyer as I have known in my 40 years of practice. It is a pleasure to be associated with Scott. He very much deserves the highest professional rating.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Scott is very effective because he knows how to cooperate with other lawyers to achieve positive results but can, when necessary, aggressively advocate on behalf of his client. He is also one of the most ethical lawyers I have ever encountered.
