An Excellent Experience
Are you in the need of an attorney? If yes I would strongly recommend Scott Ferris. Recently I used his services and found him to be excellent. He handled things expeditiously and was always available to answer my many questions and if wasn't available returned my call in a timely manner. I found him to be very caring and trustworthy. Working with him gave me confidence that in the end I would have a positive result and indeed I did.Â I believe you canâ€™t go wrong with the counsel of Scott Ferris.

Condo Law assistance by Scott Ferris.
Scott was very helpful to us in resolving an issue with one of the tenants in our condo association. Scott was especially good in helping us parse through the legal mumbo-jumbo so we (non-lawyers) could understand what was going on. His advice was right and we won our case. We are definitely going to use him again for all legal matters related to our condo association and other personal matters. He is a trusted advisor who I will be relying on in the future.

The best Lawyer in Miami and Florida
My divorce was extremely difficult due to my extremely hard to deal with ex-wife and an unfair post judgement. I tried hard for 4 years but my previous lawyer was going in circles not able to accomplish anything.
While desperate I searched for other lawyers and Scott Ferris came up as one of the best in Miami. I called him right the way, He was very kind, thorough and understanding of the situation. I had Mr. Scott Ferris represent me that same week. I hired Mr. Ferris in March 2015, he was so goal oriented and best of all REACHABLE!!!!!!! I went from not seeing my daughter to having fixed time sharing with my daughter regardless of how hard my ex-wife tries to sabotage the deals.
In just 3 months Mr. Ferris accomplished what my previous lawyer failed to do in 4 years! I was able to finally have time sharing with my daughter after 4 years of struggle.
Mr. Ferris is someone who is always looking for your best interest and willing to actually listen to your needs and worries anytime any day no matter what the situation is. Mr. Scott Ferris is a very impressive lawyer with his persistence and aggressiveness; no case is hard for him, he sets clear goals and pays attention to every detail.
Mr. Ferris proved me that good ethical lawyers exist! I am so glad there are reviews online because reading other people In situations like me gave me hope.
Mr. Scott Ferris is still representing me and if I didn't have faith in his incredible abilities to deal with the worst people )my ex-wife, her father and their lawyer) I will not be sharing my personal experience.
So please if you need help with your divorce or child custody or support, I highly recommend Mr. Scott Ferris, he is simply the BEST!!I thank you Mr. Ferris.

I would absolutely recommend Mr. Scott Ferris!!
I hired Scott after a friend highly recommended him and I am so happy to have done so! He immediately began working on my case and got the ball rolling, helping me with a very complicated case when I was losing all hope... He always answered my phone calls and emails keeping me informed throughout every step of the process. I can't say enough good things about Scott! Heâ€™s the absolute best! I've used other attorneys in the past, but have NEVER worked with one this professional or good!

Skilled and trustworthy attorney in Miami !
Excellent attorney! Helped me so much thru difficult times. Great legal adviser. Case solver like no other in Miami. Mr. Ferris makes himself available 24/7. I will never forget when I called one holiday night and Mr. Ferris abandoned his child's baseball game to take care of my emergency. He is always courteous and professional even in the most stressful times.
Five stars rate to the entire staff in the office for the great job in accommodating clients like me, with a last minute's trouble.

Scott Ferris Review
Scott was very knowledgeable and was very responsive to any inquiries. Scott was able to quickly mediate the matter and as a result the process was very short from beginning to end. He has the best interest of his clients and looks for quick ways to mitigate the matter to help with fees. I highly recommend Scott!

"The lawyer who came to my rescue!"
My name is Conrad and I've used different lawyers in the past to help me with my family court issues for years to no avail until I came in contact with Mr. Scott Ferris. Scott as he likes to be called, got the courts to grant me what my other lawyers couldn't. Whichever father should have time in his child's life from Friday - Sunday, morning, every weekend, also a week in the summer and winter break then they need Mr. Scott Ferris. Everything that Mr. Ferris helped me with makes him a first class lawyer in my book, and if you use him he'll be the same in yours!

We contacted Scott on Novembers, (holiday weekend) . It was after hours and without knowing us he give us his legal advice. He agreed to see us, that same weekend. We meet at his office Sunday approximately at 7.00 pm. At that point, we felt confident; we knew then he will be our lawyer for life. He is aggressive and passionate. During the length of our case, each time we contacted him, he answered almost instantly. Great response. We will recommend Scott. He is great doing what he does. Scott is a true professional with high standards.
Timely and Efficient

My family and I found ourselves in a legal situation that was filled with a variety of twists and turns. Complicating matters even more was the fact that Mr. Ferris had to operate under rigid time constraints. Despite all of this, Mr. Ferris skillfully peeled away each level of complexity and ultimately helped to provide our family with a very happy ending!
The Best Attorney, I was fortunate to retain himâ€¦â€¦

Mr. Ferris is not only a knowledgeable attorney, he has compassion, does what he sets out to do and very patient with clients who need to be led by the handâ€¦..my family is fortunate to have met and retained this wonderful man, he helped us through the most difficult times and always had our best interest at heart.
Posted by Monica, an Alimony client
Scott Ferris was referred by a family member, when some issues in my previous divorce came up and I did not want to use my original attorney . After explaining what the situation was Scott went right to work in resolving the issues. He would contact me for information he needed and would keep me up on all matters at hand. Always answering questions when I had them and there were quite a few! Scott was always very kind and calming when that was needed as well. Our situation got resolved before our court date, I was very happy with the outcome. The office staff is very kind and helpful as well. As unpleasant as divorce situations can be Scott and his staff made it easier. Thank you.
Thoroughly goes above and beyond
Posted by an Internet client
Mr. Ferris has helped me on more than one occasion; and both times he has been extremely helpful, thorough and most of all truly concerned about the cases and my personal well being. He assisted me once with a divorce and once when I was being extorted for money. His expertise in the courtroom is displayed in his demeanor, confidence and most of all his highest level of integrity. I personally can not thank him enough for all his help.
Â Justice against a corrupt police
Posted by William, a Criminal Defense client
I found myself sitting in jail in Miami Florida after an innocent night out at a bar I was harassed, unlawfully searched, and eventually charged. My faith in the system had been challenged and my options as shown to me by several â€śspinelessâ€ť attorneys in the area informed me that this officer though corrupt would be held in finer regard when we went to trial. I felt abused by the legal system and disenchanted to say the least. Thankfully a friend turned me on to mr Ferris and I felt immediate relief . He was incredibly thorough and showed a willingness to fight back for my cause. That alone would have won my recommendation, but I am happy to say that above his effort that the proof of his ability was certainly in the proverbial pudding. He was excellent in questioning the officer and his actions on the night of the incident and even more dug into this corrupt polices past. To make a long story short the officer after being questioned refused to show up in court and my charges were dropped. I am very pleased to verify that Mr ferris was a better lawyer than I had ever imagined it is seldom that justice be brought to light in these types of cases and Iâ€™m thankful for this victory.
Â Outstanding service, prepared, to the point, cost effective and reliable, expert advise
Posted by Camillo, a Divorce client
I have worked with Scott Ferris in two different settings in the past year, one for my divorce case and one for a dispute that my daughter had with a major banking institution that refused to refund fraudulent charges on her credit card. I had an outstanding experience and outcome on both counts. I recommend Scott Ferris without hesitation and with the highest degree of enthusiasm.
Posted by a Family client
Quite simply, Scott saved me over $600,000 in child support and alimony arrearages (assuming I were able to pay everything â€“ but I could not); he wiped out â€śnon-modifiableâ€ť alimony; properly reduced child support from $3,000 to $900â€”all within 5 months and never seeing a courtroom and never disclosing a confidential communication. Scott is diligent, honest and efficient.
Above and beyond the callâ€¦
Posted by Mariano, a Family client
Outstanding! Mr. Ferris walked me through one of the most difficult times in my life and made everything make sense. He is very thorough and knowledgeable. I have great respect for this man not only as a lawyer but as a father and a man as well. He instilled great confidence in me during my divorce, and helped me be a father to my children. Mr.Ferris is fair, and honest. I would recommend him to anyone seeking the advice of an expert.
Justice for Ferrisâ€™ clients!

One evening, I was searching for an attorney and I came across Scott Ferrisâ€™s website. That evening I emailed him for my son and he responded immediately with legal advice. I hired him and it has been smooth sailing since then. He charges a reasonable amount for his cases and his office staff is excellent. Lisandra keeps you well informed on your case and Scott Ferris gets the job done. Take my advice and hire Scott Ferris, you will be thanking me.

In dealing with the relocation of my fiancĂ© and her son to another state, we could not ask for a better lawyer. Scott is very persistent and professional. He treated our case with extreme care and used his experience to lead us in the right direction. When going into a case like ours, it was very scary to choose a lawyer, as it was going to affect the rest of our lives. We are very glad that we chose Scott and sincerely recommend him to everyone.Â
Very positive experienceÂ
Posted by: Paul, a debt collection clientÂ
I retained Mr. Ferris through a recommendation from a mutual business contact who assured me of Mr. Ferrisâ€™ hard working, no nonsense attitude that produced results. He was spot on. Aside from keeping me in the loop every step of the way, Mr. Ferris achieved the best possible outcome on a civil collection matter in the shortest period of time, and in a cost efficient manner. I can honestly say he exceeded my expectations in every way possible. I would not hesitate in any way to use Mr. Ferris again if the situation arose.Â
An attorney you can always count on!Â
Posted by: a Family clientÂ
Scott A Ferris is a â€śone-of-kindâ€ť attorney in this often complicated and hard to navigate arena of family law. He is definitely in a league above and beyond any other attorney which I have used regarding my case. His attention to detail and responsiveness is critical in situations regarding children which more often than not can be time-sensitive matters. He is also an extremely ethical lawyer who will always put the best interest of the child first. He is always fair and has a way of putting all the small details of the case into perspective ultimately helping the client to understand better how to proceed.Â
Great reoccurring experience every time I request the services of Scott Ferris.Â
Posted by: Marlon, a landlord & tenant clientÂ
I have used Scott twice in the past year and the guidance received from Scott has been advantages for my business each time. Scott has always made himself available to me during as well as after business hours (weekends as well). My experiences to date have been nothing less than informative and prompt. I have the need for further legal services in the near future and without question, the Law Office of Scott A. Ferris, P.A. is whom I will be calling to assist with my legal needs. On a personal matter Scott was able to put me in touch with another law firm to work on a case that he was not able to take on due to the geographical location which was not conducive for Scott to work on. The firm that he put me in contact with has been good but I do not have the same personable feeling with them that I have with Scott, who in my opinion raises the bar higher than others.Â

I work for an entertainment management firm in Los Angeles, and we needed a lawyer based in Miami who could appear on behalf of one of our clients. Problem was we needed the lawyer to be available basically the next day to go to court. Scott came highly recommended by a lawyer our firm works with in New York. I contacted Scott who immediately returned my phone call and made himself available to help us out at the last minute. He was completely professional, trustworthy, and efficient across the board. He was even able to get my clientâ€™s charges dismissed. He went above and beyond by even helping us obtain his bail refund. My client and I are very satisfied and pleased with the service of Scott and his staff. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.Â

Scott has been my attorney for many years. first, as my corporate attorney for my (fine) jewelryÂ stores, then, regrettably, for my divorce.

He is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of the law and in BOTH cases, put meÂ in a far better position than I could have imagined (and frankly, much better than any other lawyersÂ I consulted with said they could do for me!). He is truly one of the most gifted lawyers I have seen.

Comments on the Best Divorce Lawyer (in my opinion) in Miami
Posted by: Andy, a divorce client
I picked Scott Ferris randomly out of the Yellow Pages to represent me, when my wife of 14 yearsÂ filed for divorce last August. Boy, was I lucky with my random choice! I found Scott to beÂ extremely competent, and he was truly â€śby my sideâ€ť during this trying period. He was not only myÂ lawyer, but also my best friend, who would be emailing me occasionally at 1 a.m. when he felt thatÂ I needed his advice. He handled the depositions and the mediation brilliantly, and got me a financialÂ deal as good as I could hope for. He gave me his cell phone number and encouraged me to call himÂ 24/7, if I needed to.
His office staff is wonderful. Moreover, I found out that my ex-wife paid more than twice as muchÂ to her attorney, than what Scott charged me. With all his talents, care and compassion, he is evenÂ reasonable! What more could one ask for??
Great Premarital Lawyer
Posted by: a prenuptials client
I recently chose Mr. Ferris as my legal representative for a premarital agreement. Such agreementsÂ come with mixed emotions and after receiving the agreement only a week before the wedding, IÂ thought it may never get done in time for the big day. There were many changes to be made and itÂ was not a simply written agreement. What Mr. Ferris accomplished under very limited circumstancesÂ all in one week was honestly incredible and a relief. Should I have any issues in the future, I wouldÂ definitely seek Mr. Ferrisâ€™ counsel again without hesitation.

A Friend Indeed

â€śHelping a Friend in Need is a Friend Indeedâ€ť. That is how I feel about Scott A. Ferris who helpedÂ me resolve a dispute with an employer of almost 20 years. It was a delicate matter that required a softÂ touch at times and an iron fist at others. Somehow, Scott always seemed to know which strategy toÂ use first and at the right time. He will work tirelessly for you as I have seen in my case emails andÂ updates to me even at 2 in the morning! Scott will fight as hard or as delicately as wished, just giveÂ him the latitude and he will win the case for you and your family. My case and claim was resolvedÂ positively for my family and with relatively minor expenses and complications. In the end, theÂ Return On Investment is well worth having Scott fight for you and your rights.
Scott A. Ferris is the lawyer for you if you indeed need a friend when you are in need.

I would personally recommend Scott Ferris as an attorney for any type of Criminal, Divorce, orÂ Personal injury matter. Scott managed to win four hearings for me in a little over 12 months. I startedÂ with nothing and ended up getting an incredible outcome which was well beyond my expectations.Â I reflect constantly on how blessed I am that Scott managed to win so much for me and my family.Â His personal attention, hard work and professionalism, will always be remembered and appreciated.Â I was living overseas during my case and Scott often worked through the night just to get me anÂ answer to a question or issue.
Scott was always one step ahead. He kept me informed of how things were progressing and he wasÂ very open with me regarding my options. It was great going to court knowing Scott was in myÂ corner. It gave me confidence and relieved a lot of the stress. Scott is a friend and an incredibleÂ attorney, a combination that you just canâ€™t beat!!!! Thank you Scott

I met Mr. Ferris when my first marriage was in disarray. I was in the middle of a divorce and theÂ previous attorney I hired was unsatisfactory. When I met with Scott I was frustrated and confused.Â However, after a short time consulting with him I knew I was in good hands. Mr. Ferris took myÂ perplexed situation and mediated it to perfection. In addition, Scott has helped my second wife andÂ I mediate a fair child visitation and support agreement for my step daughter. Marriage is tough andÂ through the adversities of day to day living I have found myself calling Mr. Ferris for advice. ScottÂ is not only a great attorney he is a good friend.

It is a great pleasure to write a review of services provided by Mr. Scott A. Ferris. After havingÂ consider difficulty with a divorce mediation attorney, I was referred to Mr. Ferris by a friend of theÂ family. Scott was a godsend. He offered effective and sensitive consultation throughout all phasesÂ of my divorce. Mr. Ferris was always willing to take the extra step in helping me to negotiateÂ anxiety-provoking communications with my ex-wife and children. In effect, he was like a brotherÂ to me during a time of considerable duress. I am forever grateful to him for his legal prowess andÂ friendship.
Bottom line: I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend Mr. Ferris to others who needÂ divorce-related service or other areas of expertise he possesses.
