Every case is different and requires a unique approach that focuses on each client’s specific needs and values. When you hire Scott, you get his undivided attention on your individual case. Scott purposefully limits the number of clients he works with so that he can give each person the time and attention they need to succeed. Unlike many attorneys, Scott normally does not bill by the hour. Instead, he sets a flat fee for each case so that clients know exactly how much their defense will cost. This ensures that clients won’t be afraid to contact him because they fear they will be charged for a phone call or email, and it also makes sure that clients never receive a surprise bill or expense.
