Freeman Freeman & Smiley LLP Sylvia M Scott / Poor Service and No Experience Sylvia Scott
We engaged Sylvia Scott in connection with a securities fraud investigation. Despite Sylvia Scott impressive appearing resume, she did not appear to know very much. Her approach was to promise a quick fix rellying on her contacts at FINRA. Instead, she pawned of the matter on inexperienced 2nd year associates. She was a glorified investigator at FINRA, and does not really understand private practice. Our in house lawyers compared her to an inexperienced prosecutor, which is a far cry from the savvy securities expert she sold herself as both to us and probably to her employer, an estate planning firm. If you need a real securities attorney, look elsewhere, and dont waste your money.
Sylvia Marie Scott is nothing more than a former low to mid-level government lawyer trying to build a practice in the private sector, and learn from her mistakes on your company's dime.
