“I can not recommend Scott Thomas enough. Four months after my husband died a family member, who was very depressed and grieving, was in a single car accident and was arrested and charged. As we had never had any traffic violations, much less any arrests, we had no idea of how to proceed and we were overwhelmed. Scott was there for us every step of the way, his professionalism was outstanding, as was his expertise. He fought for us and got us the best possible outcome. He answered all our questions and gave us assistance when we it was needed. I would definitely work with him again, if ever needed, and strongly recommend him.”
