Scott, let me take this occasion to tell you that given all the facts and circumstances of my case that made it not to be a Garden Variety injury case, you did a great job in my case. You were organized, caring, and accommodating to your client's special circumstances and worked to the best of my interest within that framework.
I am glad I switched to you as my attorney, and I am grateful to you in taking my case when I came to you.
I learned a few things in the process as well, and measured and experienced my own weaknesses and strengths which is something I appreciated in working with you.
I will not hesitate to recommend you as well as attorney Kendra Long in the future to any of my friends, etc. should they need a personal injury representation. So thank you again for the great job of treating your client the right way and getting the best result you could get given the nuances of the case.

Scott Carness was a referral turned absolute godsend; I cannot speak of him more highly. In addition to being an expert in his field with an affinity for accuracy and attention to detail, he was incredibly respectful and empathetic during a somewhat touchy and personal case. I always felt I was in good hands with Scott, and I'm very pleased with the outcome of working with him.

Scott Carness is an outstanding lawyer. He will go the extra mile for you to help you with your case and truly understands every individual's situation. I would recommend him to my friends and I would definitely call on his services if I had the misfortune of being a victim in a car wreck again.
