Common Legal Questions
How do I know if I need an attorney?
A qualified, experienced attorney can help protect your rights in a case. If you’re wondering whether or not you really need one, consider the stakes: if it is a matter of child custody or criminal defense, you’ll want to have quality representation in a court of law.

How much is your legal fee?
Right from the start, Scott will have an open and honest conversation with you about the fees you can expect to incur over the course of your case. Fees are typically dependent upon the type of case, the length of it, and other factors that vary depending on the legal practice field your case falls under.
Do you accept any case?
Scott practices in the fields of family law, criminal defense, and personal injury. It is best for you to connect with a lawyer who specializes in the field your case falls under. Even if your case is within one of these categories, there are other factors like a conflict of interest or not enough proof that can cause a case not to be accepted.
Will I have to go to court?
