  • "Responds quickly and communicates well with clients."
    Knowledgeable, responds quickly and communicates well with clients. I hired him on a short notice and he was there despite the fact that he had less than 24 hours to prepare. Very affordable.

  • "La representacion de Señor Scott era excelente por un u precio justo."

    El DMV habia confiscado mi licensia por un ano y iban a suspendirla por un ano mas. Señor Scott hizo muchas llamadas a sus conecciones en el DMV, me represento en una audencia, y el DMV devolvio la licensia. La representacion de Señor Escot era excelente por un u precio justo.

  • "I put Scott Bentley on my side and he DELIVERED!"

    Last year, I had 2 misdemeanor court cases that gave me many sleepless nights. Luckily, I had the real Mailman -- Scott Bentley on my side and he DELIVERED! 
    He was able to have one misdemeanor reduced to an infraction in which I would just have to pay a small fine (and don't think about it ever again) and the other one will be dismissed once I complete a court orderd program thereby maintaining my record pristine. I would always hire Atty. Scott Bentley to help me through any legal problems I may have in the future. I believe that he will, like a true mailman, always deliver...
