About the Toussaint Law Firm

                  Prepare, prepare, prepare—that is the firm’s motto. We do our best to prepare a client’s case and sort through complex matters by creating timelines, strategy plans, alimony projections, child support calculations, property debt worksheets, and more. This approach also allows us to clearly communicate to clients about their situations, ensuring that everyone involved understands every client meeting, mediation, settlement discussion and court ruling. We research medical and criminal records to certify each client’s case, and work to provide innovative approaches that may resolve the situation instead of court.

            The Toussaint Law Firm stresses teamwork: we provide a team approach to help in divorce or family law issues. A team of an attorney and a paralegal works together with every client, ensuring you always have someone you can call at any time. This team approach improves communication and reduces cost to our clients. If you ever need information, please do not hesitate to call.

Additionally, we work closely with an extensive network of experts and legal support professionals to provide access to resources that best protect our clients’ interests. Some of the professionals we use include: certified public accountants; business valuation experts; forensic computer specialists; real estate appraisers; licensed private detectives; psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, custody evaluators and physicians; court reporters; process servers; guardians ad litem; and technology experts. We arrange the experts to best meet the needs of each individual case.

Whether you are entering a difficult divorce, struggling with custody issues, looking forward to an adoption or planning for the future of your children, Scott Toussaint and his team will support you throughout the process and help you move into the next chapter of your life.

Thanks Scott!
I hired Scott to help me out with my worker's compensation case. He was extremely professional, kind, and understanding. He made me feel like a part of his family and I felt as if I was a top priority at all times. He gave me the lowest estimate from any lawyer in the Seneca area, and he won my case. I would recommend Scott 10 times out of 10.

Knowledgeable, Friendly, and Genuine
I sat down with K. Scott Toussaint for a consultation and I am thrilled with the service that was provided. He broke down my current situation very effectively and he provided insight on the matter. His insight has already paid off. He was very genuinely interested in my situation, my company, and myself. I will definitely be using his services again.

Legal Advice for Sexual Assault Case
I consulted in Mr. Toussaint for advice on a legal situation involving a sexual assault. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Not only did he have answers to all of my questions, but he also further gave me information that I need to know moving forward in my case. I would definitely recommend him as a lawyer. He’s not only professional, but also personable.

An attorney with a heart for his clients
Mr. Toussaint represented me in a divorce case. From the first appointment, he put me completely at ease and listened to all of my concerns. He was extremely accessible to answer my questions through out the entire process. He prepared me for what to expect in and out of court. He is a very caring attorney that has been in the client's shoes and understands what is going on mentally, emotionally, and financially for someone in this situation. He always explained things clearly, advised me on the tough decisions, and respected my opinion. I highly recommend him. -T Skinner

Bad experience, did not help my case, slow work
Hired Toussaint for a divorce. He set up for terrible visitation with my kids. When I needed to speak with him, I had to schedule a 10 minute phone conference a month in advance. His legal assistants made errors on numerous occasions and I paid more hours to correct mistakes. His accounting staff made several mistakes over billing me. I would not recommend Toussaint under any circumstances.
