Representation For Good People Who Need Real Results

Last updated on November 13, 2023

We know firsthand, due to our many years of experience, the extensive array of problems associated with being arrested or charged with a crime. We understand the financial and personal hardships that are involved. As a result, we, at Scott and Scott, P.A., use the opportunity to represent our clients as a way of influencing their lives for the better. We strive to help our clients and their families navigate through an often unforgiving and daunting criminal justice system. If you have been charged with a crime, contact us in order to feel confident that you will have an attorney advocating on your behalf both persistently and effectively every step of the process.

Lasting Solutions Through Creative Strategies And Expungement

People often end up in the criminal justice system because of circumstances outside of their control, for example substance abuse issues that they cannot seem to overcome or relationships with people who either threaten their well-being or are otherwise negative influences.

We believe our clients need a helping hand more than discipline through fines, probation and incarceration because we feel they deserve an opportunity to build a brighter future and not face the long-term consequences of a criminal record.

We help our clients enter rehabilitative programs, file motions to move the case to drug court proceedings or pursue the deletion of a criminal record through expungement.
