My ex-wife filed for divorce a year ago and her lawyer filed a restraining order against me immediately before a visit to see my son, despite the fact I did not reside in the state, and having no specific previous conflict that merited such an action. I had a free consultation with Scott who was very good at listening and sympathetic, and I decided to retain his services. He acted quickly to negotiate the withdrawal of the petition for a restraining order. Subsequently, a fair parenting plan was negotiated, which allowed me to see my son and contact him regularly while out of state, which was much better than the situation prior to my ex-wife filing for divorce, which depended on her whims. Child support was a concern, as my wife wanted an unreasonable amount of money, far beyond what I could afford. Scott was right in his interpretation of the facts and when he went to court the Commissioner favored his arguments, and the terms settled were fair. He was right on and did not waiver, which reflects his knowledge and many years of experience. Scott was always very aware of my concerns about costs, and he did initially give a very accurate prediction of final cost. In addition, he was always calm, polite, thoughtful, and empathetic with me, he built a rapport with my ex-wife's lawyer to negotiate, while being resolute in defending my interests. Getting divorced with Scott's representation was far less stressful than it might have been with another attorney.

I retained Scott Semrau as my attorney to help with me deal with a recent family law situation involving a false allegation of domestic violence restraining order against me which was later dismissed in court thanks to the excellent legal work of Scott Semrau. In addition to the dismissal of the false restraining order against me, Scott Semrau also helped me safeguard my legal rights to be a parent and not be alienated from my children by helping set up regular court ordered time with my children and a reasonable child support order.
Scott Semrau's legal strategies in court worked very well in all of my court proceedings and I can attest that we have won all of our court hearings and I have attained my my desired legal outcome.
One of the most important legal victory in court Scott Semrau has attained for me is the dismissal of a false restraining order against me which could have led me to lose my job and adversely affect my future employment.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH

I called Scott when I first realized I was going to be going through divorce. As someone who has never been involved in anything to do with going to court or trial, I have to say that Scott made it very easy for me, also I was not the best client as far as providing paperwork and things of that nature but he was always patient and helpful. Scott also advised and me and handled my entire case for over 10 months. I ended up going to trial where he was well prepared and laid out my case quickly and efficiently. Every aspect of the case was ruled in my favor, Also I'm able to see my son who I was in a ruthless custody battle for even more often! I highly recommend him as an attorney, the amount of stress relief is worth it!

We found Scott one day before we had to be in court to litigate a restraining order. Scott was immediately on the ball and went to great lengths to prepare us for our hearing and also to make us feel respected, heard, and understood. As the case developed further through continuance and back and forth with the respondent’s lawyer, Scott displayed unwavering dedication to ensuring our case was ironclad. He was up front and honest about what things would cost and which approaches he thought would be worth the expense, and which of my suggestions probably wouldn’t be worth it. Throughout our ordeal, Scott was supportive, collaborative, and compassionate; and when it came time to finally go to court against the respondent, Scott was masterful. His opening argument, witness examination and cross examination, and closing argument were fantastic, and his excellent representation of us resulted in the most positive outcome we could have imagined. I literally cannot recommend Scott highly enough.

Scott was absolutely great. He went above and beyond to make sure that the outcome of our case would be what we hoped for. Not only did he have my best interests but he was always there when I just needed to have a quick chat about some of the things we had to do. It didn’t matter if it was 7 in the morning or 11:30 at night. Scott is definitely worth choosing. Thank you

Scott represented my husband and I in a very serious case and got the best results possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a knowledgable and passionate attorney.

Scott has been a great listener, compassionate, and I have always believed he was fighting for me and the best interest of my children. He is available when I need to speak to him; promptly responds to text messages and emails.

I think Scott is fine with a straightforward basic case. If there's more complexity - he's not prepared to handle. Nest guy - that wants to do the right thing, just be clear on expectations.

I received 3 citations just before moving out of state and all it took was one phone call to The Semrau Lawfirm and everything was taken. Care of and he beat my tickets.
