About our Portland, ME: office

A lifelong resident of Maine, Scott grew up in Kennebunk, where he graduated from Kennebunk High School. Scott went on to attend Bowdoin College in Brunswick, where he met his wife, Carrie McGilvery, a Yarmouth native. Scott graduated from Bowdoin summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. He briefly pursued a career in the antique auction industry, at Christies in New York and Skinner in Boston, before attending Boston College Law School. There, he was a writer for the Uniform Commercial Code Reporter Digest.

After law school, Scott returned to Maine, where he has practiced exclusively in the fields of consumer and small business bankruptcy and consumer law, first at a small law firm in Saco, and later in Auburn. In his spare time, Scott enjoys antiquing, collecting old bottles, and running. He resides in a circa 1815 farmhouse in Portland with his wife and new son, Selwyn.

      I had a one hour meeting with Scott 2 days ago, and he gave me more useful information than all others combined. His style is modest, belying a superior intellectual capacity. I have spent tens of thousands on lawyers, most of it wasted. The really good ones don't spend all their time telling you how great they are, or how low you are in comparison. The are your ally. Scott is a compassionate man and a damn good attorney. Out of the 30 or so lawyers I have hired, he is one of the best.

      I recommend Scott. Previously interviewed law offices offered cookie cutter like solutions. Scott spent an entire uninterrupted hour with me during our initial meeting. He critically analyzed my financial situation, considered my future goals and crafted a defense strategy. Scott remained actively engaged and aggressively resolved inevitable legal issues. Scott negotiated a loan mod. (Previously refused 3 times), reduced my debt, protected my future income from creditors & saved my home. -DR

      I came to Scott from another attorney after the costs on my case had skyrocketed and I had no idea of the direction or status. Scott immediately took control of my case and brought the costs to a normal level, and soon after my case was confirmed on payments terms that I had hoped for. Unlike my previous attorney, Scott was always willing to meet with me and he promptly responded to all of my emails and phone calls.

      We had been using a different attorney with absolutely no results. We decided to find another attorney and found Scott Logan. We were very happy with Scott. He was very helpful, smart and most importantly he made us feel at ease. I would have no problem recommending Scott to anyone who needed a bankruptcy attorney.

      I was referred to Scott by a friend who used him. He loved him so much, he spoke to me about him when he filed. I got his information also from a friend that is a major real estate developer in the greater Portland area. Scott has a style that is low key, and I realized that I could trust him. He is a Bowdoin grad and very smart. He will very quietly go to the wall for you without ever telling you, and of the 50 or so lawyers that I have hired, 50% useless, and 10% were amazing, like Scott.

      Scott was approachable, affable and affordable. When you are struggling financially, the affordable part is not just nice to have. He was patient with my many questions, and seemed to effortlessly navigate the backend workings. All I had to do was give him my debts, meet once with the Trustee (very decent guy, that Trustee Mr. Fessenden)and sign some documents. After that I made some nominal payments each month and was able to keep my car and home. What more could I ask for in this circumstance.

      Scott failed to warn me that my student loan rehabilitation program would be affected by filing. Agencies told me i had to restart the programs. I brought it to his attention & he shamed me for believing them. After my discharge, i asked for his help then he tells me i should restart the program. 4 months invested down the drain. He never admitted his negligence. Cant pay for school now. He was 1 hour late for the meeting of creditors.There were times he would not greet me. Very disrespectful.

      I was very disappointed in this attorneys attitude, demeanor, and most importantly, his lack of skills. He took forever to get papers completed, ignored my calls, and then billed me well over what he verbally told me. I feel that his fee agreement is vague. You can expect that he will demand well over what he initially quotes you. I would not mind opposing counsel thought. His fees well exceed the norm & other attorney have been shocked by his fees. Don't go there.
