“Great move Envision Family Law! The best thing that this firm could have done, was to hire Attorney Scott Marlow. While I am certain that all of the attorneys are great at what they do, it takes a special human to alleviate the chaos and the ugly from a divorce procedure. I was married to a narcissist with money, who had an attorney without boundaries or ethics… but, I had Scott and they were not ready for him. Scott handled my “ugly” with compassion, kindness and most of all intelligence and backbone. Scott, thank you for your humor and your professionalism. You found a way to make me smile through the tears and you took care of all of the “what if’s” and “now what’s.” When I wanted to react from anger and frustration, you responded with knowledge and class and nothing else needed to be said. I am pretty sure that they are still asking themselves, “what just happened?” To that I say… Scott just happened!”
