Our Success Stories
Represented mother in a case against paternal grandparents who were seeking visitation with two children. Grandparents were awarded visitation at the trial court level. We appealed the ruling to the North Carolina Court of Appeals where the decision was reversed and our client’s rights to full custody of her children were restored. The case result was published by the Court of Appeals, meaning that it is now binding law across the entire state and can be followed by judges and lawyers in all 100 counties.
Represented a father in a child custody case. The mother took out a phony domestic violence restraining order against father in an attempt to inappropriately and unfairly gain custody of their young daughter in a court of a foreign jurisdiction. Mother was also pregnant with the father’s second child at the time of her obtaining the restraining order granting her emergency custody of the first child. Scott Law Group successfully had the restraining order dismissed and the custody issue transferred to the proper jurisdiction to allow a fair trial. The mother denied our client the opportunity to be present for the birth of their second child and withheld visitation of said child from our client. This necessitated Scott Law Group to file suit for the second child. After filing several motions, Scott Law Group successfully won in our client being granted permanent, joint 50/50 legal and physical custody of both children.
State of North Carolina v. M.T.: Represented client charged with felony assault by strangulation and assault on a female. Client was facing up to 39 months in prison if found guilty. Following a trial in which the prosecuting witness and police officer both testified against our client, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty to all charges.
Represented a client who was charged with numerous drug-related offenses following the execution of a search warrant at their residence. The client had several prior felony convictions and was already in his 60’s at the time the case went to trial. Because of his prior record, our client was facing a habitual felon status. If convicted, our client could have received a life sentence in prison. Scott Law Group took the case to a jury trial and won a dismissal of all charges at the close of the state’s evidence, which is generally considered the most difficult outcome to achieve in a criminal trial.
Represented an elderly woman who was involved in a serious car accident and suffered multiple rib fractures and a spinal compression fracture after being struck by a negligent driver. Recovered a six-figure settlement on behalf of client and received the maximum allowable payout by the other driver’s insurance company and client’s insurance company.
Represented the estate of a father of two who was killed in a head-on crash with a semi-truck on US 52 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. An action for wrongful death was filed following the crash. Following a mediated settlement conference, Scott Law Group was successfully able to recover a settlement of $700,000 on behalf of the victim’s estate.
