"Nicholas J. Scott was my attorney as executor for an estate. Please note that Nick’s service remains monumental. Throughout this long, complicated case, which encompassed many unprecedented factors, Nick always exhibited his ethical professionalism. Due to the unexpected demise of my first estate attorney Nick was hired. Taking a case over three years old was a difficult task I believe. Many situations had changed. Nick had to play "catch up" regarding the estate's status; from the beginning, he showed his talent for working with diverse personalities and other legal teams. Coupled with his personalness and driven by his diligence, Nick’s help finally moved my case along. I know that my case often called for attention and time not anticipated. Mr. Scott never complained, however. During this time Nick demonstrated how knowledgeable he is of the law. I saw his respect of Justice and the Truth. He was always fair and supportive to all. Yes, Nick seemed to enjoy finding ways to help. Nick employed candor--not just telling me what I wanted to hear. Above are just some of the traits which make Nick commendable."
