Client Feedback


From Alan on 8/1/15 - I was represented by Scott Fisher. He did an excellent job. He works hard and his rates are reasonable. He is a great attorney. Since he is a great attorney and has good rates, he's got a busy schedule as he has a lot of clients. He was willing to work my case and take payments. I'd definitely recommend him to my friends and family. I was amazed when I saw him in action in court fighting for the custody of my son.

Termination of Rights

From Erin on 7/16/15 - Scott is amazing. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a lawyer. He always emailed me back right away and was so helpful with all of my questions. He is very knowledgable and easy to work with. I will definately use him in the future if I am in need of legal help.


From M. K. on 6/25/15 - I just finished a custody hearing for the second time with Scott. He was supportive through both hearings, and, in the end, helped me get the best result I could ask for. He was easy to talk to about my case, and was knowledgeable about the law for my situation. Scott was able to work with me on a payment plan as well.


From Anonymous on 8/14/15 - Scott assisted my family with a stepparent adoption. He was very easy to work with.


From J.R. on 10/01/15 - Thank you for always taking care of me. You will never know how much it means to have your support - especially when things get tough. You're one of a kind.
