"I always feel confident when referring family law clients to Jim Scott. I've known Jim since law school. We've tried cases together. I've seen him prepare and work hard to make sure his clients' interests are fully represented. When a client or a friend needs a family law attorney, Jim's name is always first on my list." - Michael J. Vallee, Esq.

"I have been a client of Mr. Scott's for 20+ years. I have used Jim's law firm for our corporate filings, wills and living trusts. I have also recommended Mr. Scott to my friends for personal injury cases and have had a great response from them. He has always been fair and extremely thorough." - Randy Aron

"My name is Milan Lavelle and I am a single mom of two young boys. I left my ex-husband in 2003 and went through four different attorneys before Mr. James Scott was referred to me by a civil litigation attorney in 2005. Mr. Scott has remained my attorney to this day, as I am STILL going through child support and child custody issues with my former husband. Prior to working with Mr. Scott and his team of highly intelligent and efficient assistants, I felt hopeless in my case because I lacked confidence in my attorneys. I was frustrated with their lack of time and attention to my case. I felt as if they really did not care about what my ex was doing to our boys and to me. Once I spoke with Mr. Scott, he made me feel as if I was someone who deserved justice and he was the one to show the judge that justice needed to be served in my direction! I found relief when Mr. Scott began to represent me; my stress level lessened... and that felt wonderful. Every member of his team at Scott Family Law is highly skilled at what they do. I have all the confidence in Mr. Scott, as well as his right hand man, Tom Kirby, and every person working in his law office. Divorce, child custody, and child support issues have all been heart wrenching and have taken a toll on my life; however, with the help of Scott Family Law, my spirits have lifted and some of that weight has been removed from my shoulders. I again have life; I can enjoy my time with my children and carry on my daily activities without being in total stress! My boys and I are fortunate to have Mr. Scott as our advocate"! - Milan A. Lavelle.
