This was my first time having to hire a lawyer and my husband and I did considerable research before hiring Scott. I was skeptical that we would find someone who genuinely cared about my husband and I and our kids and who didn't just consider us another number. From the initial consultation, we immediately felt at ease and that Scott would make sure that we received the best possible outcome for our case. This immediate feeling turned out to be true - our family ended up receiving more than we expected and I have so much less stress now that all of my family's medical bills are taken care of. Getting into a bad car accident was terrifying, and I can see how the legal hassles that follow could make the whole experience worse. I was so happy that we chose Scott to represent my family and highly highly recommend him and his law firm. THANK YOU Scott!!

Great Attorney!
Scott was so helpful and thoughtful throughout the entire process of helping my family through a tragic Medical Malpractice claim. His integrity, compassion, and knowledge and ability to guide me through the complex process are the reasons why I would whole-heartedly recommend Scott. In addition, his staff is amazing! His paralegal and intern are truly the best! Going through the Medical Malpractice process is hard, but knowing that everybody is there to help really eases the stress. Scott's team was always available to take my calls and answer my questions.

Best Mom Ever
Scott was absolutely wonderful! I was involved in not just one, but two car accidents (neither my fault) within six months of each other. As if this wasn't bad enough, I was pregnant with my first son through all of it! Scott and his staff were so supportive through the whole experience. They dealt with all the hassles of dealing with insurance companies and health care professionals when an auto accident occurs. This allowed me to focus on really important things like my unborn son! I just can't thank Scott and his staff enough!
