"Scott is a wonderful attorney. After speaking with him even once, you can tell his level of expertise is second to none. His knowledge of employment law is impeccable. When hired he was prompt to assist with my wage claim. I never had to worry about a thing. He was explanative to the point you knew exactly what was coming next. In my case my wage claim was handled extremely well and would refer him to anyone I know. Great attorney! - Nathan"

"Scott took the time to thoroughly understand the situation, presented different options to resolve the issue in the most cost effective way, brought the employer to the bargaining table, and negotiated a reasonable compromise without a lengthy and expensive courtroom battle. Scott was also very conscientious about budget constraints I was dealing with, and made sure that his time was being spent in the most cost effective way. I’ve used other attorneys who never really discussed the return on investment aspect of their time with much depth, and my experience with Scott was a refreshing change of pace in this regard. I would also suspect he’s just as effective and fair when representing an employer as well. Scott is an attorney that I would recommend without hesitation for anyone involved in an employment dispute or needing arbitration or mediation services."
