I hired Scott Brand to represent me for a very sensitive matter. He was kind, professional, and extremely diligent! He was always available when I had a question. Scott also personally communicated regularly to let me know whether or not there was a status change. He was always there! I am forever loyal to Nilson Brand Law in future matters as life happens.
