  •  Scott and his entire staff took a very difficult divorce case with child custody issues and handled it with such professionalism and care for our daughter and family. If there were a word above (the overused) "awesome" it would certainly apply here!

  •  An excellent attorney, I have worked very closely with Scott Ellis in several cases. He did a superb job in defending the clients against false accusations. I observed him help a family member in organizing her estate after the death of her husband and was very professional and compassionate. From firsthand knowledge I highly recommend him in any areas of Family Law or as a Defense Attorney.  

  •  Scott is a top notch lawyer. I've trusted this firm with several family law matters and have never been dissatisfied with their performance or the outcome. If you want an attorney to blow smoke and tell you how great everything is, go elsewhere. If you want an honest, truthful, experienced firm, this is the way to go. I've referred several friends and family members to Scott and he is the only attorney I will recommend.
