"Attorney Kristie Scott was a life saver. She treated me with respect, compassion and kindness. The process was extremely difficult, scary and stressful and she literally held my hand until the very last day, when we settled with my former employer. I was very pleased with the outcome and have recommended her to many friends and family. Having Attorney Kristie Scott on my side was nothing less than a blessing. I will always consider her one of my earthly angles. God Bless her, her family and her mission."
