Testimonials

See for yourself what our clients are saying about their experience with us.

“I hired Ian Scott in August 2014 for a Visa application to open RISE Sport Performance Training in Tucson, AZ. Right from the consultation, it was obvious that Mr. Ian Scott had expertise with regards to the Visa application process. Throughout my whole Visa application process, Mr. Scott provided expert service and was prompt, supportive, and courteous. I attended my interview feeling extremely prepared and confident. My (E-2 Visa) case was successful with an investment of $54,000. I will hire Ian for the renewal.”

Tammy VVancouver

“I cannot recommend Mr. Scott’s services enough. Our company was looking to open a subsidiary in the U.S., and Mr. Scott guided us through every step, from company creation to obtaining of an E2 visa. Mr. Scott was extremely knowledgeable and responsive. As a lawyer myself, I was truly impressed by the quality of his services. Our visa file was so complete and well organized that on the day of my interview the immigration officer only talked to me for a few minutes before granting my visa for 5 years. I highly recommend Mr. Scott’s services to any foreign entrepreneur looking to set up a business in the U.S.”

T.B.Paris, France

“The moment I began utilizing Scott Legal P.C., they put my mind at ease. They assisted me with all of my complex business needs, including setting up an entity and drafting a complicated operating agreement. I dealt directly with a C.P.A. and this helped immensely. They also prepared my business plan. The entire team was very professional and informative. They take a client focus that I rarely see and I would not hesitate recommending them. Thank you Scott Legal, P.C. for starting my company off on the right path.”
