What Others Say About 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. For example, he explained the difference in Visa types and the consulates. As well, it seemed like he truly cared and was trustworthy. For example, he asked me several questions to ensure that I did (or could) meet the criteria before suggesting that I apply for the E2 Visa. Throughout my whole Visa application process, Mr. Scott provided an expertise service and was prompt, supportive, and courteous.
I was provided with a thorough questionnaire and guided throughout to build what I believe was the best case possible. Right when I was about to schedule the interview, the Vancouver consulate had changed procedures and I was quite nervous and frustrated. Anytime I voiced concern, Mr. Scott promptly replied and his emails were always reassuring and positive, yet realistic (not providing false hope or information, for example). His firm provided me with a very well organized and comprehensive case. I was also prepped for the interview. I attended my interview feeling extremely prepared and confident. In fact, the pre-screening officer commented on how well organized and prepared I was, and was impressed that the documents were sent in ahead of time after most missed a recent change in policy…stating “you have a good lawyer.”
My case was successful with an investment of $54,000. Mr. Scott was amongst the first I told. I enjoyed working with Ian and could not even imagine using a different lawyer for the renewal process. I will definitely hire Ian for the renewal.Tammy V.Vancouver, Canada
”I first contacted Ian to handle my E-2 Visa Application, but decided to hire him also for my legal entity set up and drafting my business plan. This proved to be the best decision I could have taken for this process, as his strong (work and academic) background in both business and legal matters proved to be helpful and insightful during the time he handled my case. So much so, that I even ended up hiring him to handle my LLC Publication as well.
Overall, he was very through, understanding, responsive and honest. He always gave me complete answers from both a legal and business perspective, and never tried to sugar coat the truth, which I greatly appreciated. The application that the consulate received was very detailed and complete, which I feel was the reason why my appointment went by so smoothly and short. After around 10 minutes, my visa for a small fashion business was approved for 5 years, with an investment of less than $60,000.
I couldn’t recommend Ian and his firm enough, and I look forward to keep working with him.Maria P.Spain
”Mr. Scott and his firm assisted me with my business start-up and drafted my complex operating agreement for a multiple partner LLC. They did an excellent job helping me decide between a corporation and an LLC and also guided me through the capital raising processes. The firm explained all of the aspects of raising capital and thoroughly explained our complex member agreement. Mr. Scott was also able to work with the multiple partners and facilitated an easy working relationship. I have since referred several clients to him and will continue to do so.Craig S.LLC Construction Business Owner - New York

”Ian was fantastic. He walked us through the entire process of getting a green card for my husband. He was very patient with all of our questions and took the time to explain the process in laments terms. He provided us with assurance with out making false promises. He was very responsive with timely communication. Ian has a calmness about him that really helped me stay calm and positive about the process. I would highly, highly recommend Ian.Angel S.New York, Immigration
”A rarity in the Legal Profession. After my initial consultation with Ian, I thought he’s either a very good actor or a rarity in the legal profession. In a world where lawyers generally have a slick reputation, Ian has shown to be compassionate without the sanctimonious approach or over inflated sense of self importance many attorneys can present. He approaches the profession with reasonable fees, as well as being a great listener, and a consummate gentleman. Adding his Harvard Law Degree and Wall Street experience to the mix, it’s a pleasure to recommend him.Tom N.New York, Contract Drafting

Ian Scott has been a vital and valuable resource to me over the years. Whether day or evening, I have been fortunate to have Ian always ready and willing to give his valued expertise.EntrepreneurNY Client – Les L.
”Ian handled my E2 visa process from start to finish. All round, Ian provided a service that went well beyond expectations. Furthermore, it was a real pleasure to work with someone who was polite and well mannered during an inevitably arduous process.After talking to many lawyers and comparing my options, Ian was the most polite and professional from our first phone call. What you want with any immigration case (or any other legal matter), is a great lawyer, not a disingenuous salesman (of which there are many in NYC unfortunately!). Many bulk business lawyers are clearly disinterested in your case and gloss over any details. From our first conversation Ian was upfront about any potential problems and willing to talk about details rather than avoiding them. He was also upfront and fair when it came to pricing.In terms of execution, everything was handled perfectly and my visa was obtained exactly as expected.Plenty of lawyers will deliver when it comes to getting your visa approved but when it comes to quality of service, Ian is exceptional.EliotMobil App Start Up – New York
”Absolutely brilliant service, start to finish. We were provided with a very clear detailed process that we followed to the letter, and we were very pleased with the quality and clarity of our submission, which made the officiating visa office’s task of reviewing our application very easy, clear to see the benefits, and we are very pleased we were successful in our application (first time).SimonU.K.
I would highly recommend Ian and his assistant Kelly, for their legal and practical knowledge, as well as exceptional client service – including timeliness of responses and clarity when responding. If you are looking to make a visa application, I would also recommend using a lawyer of Ian and Kelly’s standing, because this is a very technical area of law which needs to be adhered to, to the letter – from a current (non-practicing) corporate lawyer, even I would have had difficult ensuring everything was included as professionally and as succinctly as Scott Legal Inc. did.
