Mrs. Scott was hired to represent my husband & I in our divorce proceedings. Even though we had agreed that she would be working for both of us, as my husband and I wanted to go forward with an amicable divorce and had agreed on everything prior to hiring Mrs. Scott, Mrs. Scott gave my husband ill advice that had negative consequences and made things more complicated for my husband and I. These negative experiences could have been avoided had Mrs. Scott had not given my husband damaging advice aimed to be hurtful towards me. For example, a particular residence was awarded to me including keys, escrow funds, etc. Mrs. Scott advised my husband not to surrender the escrow funds to me even after the judge signed the order. She is not trust-worthy, never returns phone calls, and makes promises she doesn't have any intention in honoring. In addition, she tried to charge $10k for a simple straight forward divorce in which my husband and I agreed on everything...all she had to do was push a few papers, and file them in court. Don't waste your money with her.
I've read the other reviews here on Margaret Scott and they are right on point with the experiance I had with her as my attorney. With the exception of the ONE STAR RATING!?!?!?! I think from the sounds of the review that person left, they must have been on the opposite side against Margaret.
The bottom line is, MARGARET SCOTT GETS RESULTS. I'm keeping her number in my cell phone, and I'd highly recommend her to ANYONE.
Don't listen to the one star rating from "" Ol' Sour Grapes"" over there.
Margaret Scott was my attorney in a case where the opposing counsel was highly known for being a witch. She was constantly badgered by this other unprofessional attorney and Margaret stayed quick-witted and on top of the game. There were times when this case would become overwhelming and oppressive, but Margaret stayed positive and refused to let my rights be stomped on by someone who believed they could do whatever they wanted to me. She defended me from a bully! She kept me informed at all times with prompt updates. I very rarely had to call her to know what was going on. She also worked with me greatly on payment due to lack of funds because of the toll of the case. She fought hard to the end and she was nothing but a blessing.
This woman has a heart of gold. She works hard and has only the best interest of her clients in mind. A friend of mine was going through a divorce that should have only cost about $2500, but ended up being 2 years and a battle that the price tag would have been outragious. Ms. Scott worked with him on what he could pay, knowing the financial bind he was in, and truly fought the good fight. She had a compassionate ear when things got rough, spoke with passion and heart to the courts about the emotional and financial toll of the case on her client, and saw the whole mess through to the end, even though the opposing party was relentless. Margaret Scott is most certainly NOT a terrible lawyer. She is the best. Whoever wrote the 1 star review was obviously an angry member of the opposing party because I know that Ms. Scott heard her client's story and fought for his rights, whether Miss Crystal liked it or not. That is the job and oath of a lawyer, to fight for the RIGHTS of a client, not for everyone to like them and their clients.
Margaret Scott is an absolute God send. I was dragged through the worst divorce imaginable. My ex-wife is the secretary for a well known San Antonio Attorney (well known for her horrible, unethical law etiquette). This attorney did everything she could come up with to all but throw me in jail. When the divorce began I hired on an attorney which was recommended to me by a relative. Huge Mistake! After several months of watching my attorney get beat up and turn tail, I found Margaret A Scott. I explained my situation to her and shortly thereafter Mrs. Scott was in my corner defending me from outrageous attacks, and winning on my behalf. Margaret is an extremely intelligent, feisty, savvy, attorney with a heart. During the duration of my very emotional and stressful times, I let the anger and frustrations of divorce cloud my judgment. Margaret walked beside me the whole way. Protecting me and advising me. The opposing attorney was known for dragging out legal cases as long as possible, and drowns opposition in paperwork with the intent of forcing a settlement. Margaret A. Scott never threw in the towel. She fought for my rights and I got the justice that I was looking for, thanks to her. I highly recommend Margaret A. Scott

This lawyer is so terrible. She claims as family law lawyer that she is all about the best interests of the children, yet she has a client who is not paying (i.e. she is working for FREE or trying to get money from the victim his soon to be ex wife). He is in jail for continous family violence, has a history of violence with his other ex wife, and has not paid child support for his two kids (only $375 a month) for a over year. He avoided paying taxes by not paying himself from his company and just skimmming money off the top. She cannot remember court dates, and does not understand anything the other lawyers have to say. HIGHLY INCOMPETENT. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A LAWYER WHO WILL WORK FOR FREE FOR A TERRIBLE MAN.
