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.

    I feel sorry for the Radio Iran Defendants as they are represented by Sylvia Scott.

    it is very interesting that the dirtbag that made the last comment deliberately posted on 2 related topics. The grammatical errors in the post by Michael Mai aka forseti are very telling. Sylvia Scott is a weak lawyer.

    i agree. I thought we were the only ones who got short changed by Sylvia M Scott from FFM. This law firm will end up with a ruined reputation from this lawyer.

    Our Company was represented by Sylvia Scott. We feel she was utterly incompetent and obscenely expensive.

    Did she prosecuted you in the past, cyber stalkers? You didn't provide any fact, just your own impressions and anger. It is funny to read a comment naming the real person "a fake", posted by an antonym :)

    Sylvia m Scott of freeman freeman & smiley is at best utterly mediocre. At worst, sylvia Scott is a paper pusher who got shafted working for a regulatory agency. What can one expect from a government employee... Save your money, hire a real sec attorney... sylvia Scott is a lazy flunk.

    i agree with this post regarding Sylvia M Scott and her firm, Freeman, Freeman & Smiley. FFS is primarily an estate planning firm that seems to be trying to offer a broader range of services. This is probably a mistake on their part.
    Sylvia is all show and virtually no substance. She is a compliance paralegal disguised as a lawyer. We were a co-defendant in a case that she took a primary role in. She has virtually zero experience or motivation. besides doing short memos and trying to get on industry panels, she is useless at best, and at worst will only exacerbate whatever legal issues you may be facing.

    Court records reflect the absence of any litigation or court proceeding in which this attorney represented the individual author of the complaint or any associated company. State bar records similarly reflect the absence of any client complaints or litigation. The more likely scenario would suggest that the author happens to be a disgruntled adverse party displeased with the effectiveness of this attorney’s representation. Nearly all of the comments likely originate from the same source as evidenced by certain similarities in use of language and other relevant factors. For example, the authors clearly attempt to influence search engine algorithms by using SEO techniques such as unnecessarily repeating proper names. From available records, this attorney has never represented a client from Iran (Radio Iran) or anywhere else outside of the United States (e.g. Netherlands, Ireland, Hong Kong, Israel).
