Liked her work so much, that we're using her for some legal work on closing a land purchase in Wisconsin. Thanks Amanda!
When my father (rest his spirit) passed away, he left behind an old copy of a will, a home filled with filth, numerous creditors, and a complicated mess to manage. I recognized early on that managing his estate would require good legal advice, and I turned to a web search to determine who might be able to assist.
Upon meeting Jeffrey Scott (and his team) I realized that this was a person I wanted to work with -- compassionate, mindful, and very knowledgeable. There was not a moment when I did not feel that I was in the best of hands and support managing the estate; many times Jeffrey brought the circumstances from confused and complicated to informed and clarified.
I thoroughly recommend him and his team to anyone involved in a challenging probate process; he is precisely the kind of person you want on your team.
We didn’t have to spend a lot of time in her office. All the paperwork was pretty much ready to go. Basically all you had to do was sign it. I thought that was very nice and professional. They were very pleasant.
Amanda went above and beyond my expectations. She was way ahead of the curve with everything I needed.
The best thing was their knowledge of estate planning. Even though it can be complex they really helped explain everything and guided me through the steps.
Amanda let me know what to expect right off the bat. Everything was clearly explained which made it easy.
It's a small firm, and it's very homey with really good people. I have already recommended them quite highly.
I called Jeffrey P. Scott & Associates, LLC looking for lawyer to help with a home renovation dispute. My knowledge of law is limited, and It turns out that they do not specialize in my type of case, but Jeff was able to provide a means to finding a law firm that fit my needs, concisely gave useful advice, and most importantly educated me on a few of the finer points of my dispute.
I will definitely be going to Jeffrey P. Scott & Associates, LLC if I ever need services related to estate planning.
Katherine’s firm had documentation that was clear and concise. When we got there she had completely reviewed everything and was thoroughly ready to meet with us. I was very impressed with that.
The best thing is that we could relate. She communicated in a way that we could understand. She was very efficient and organized. The communication was very good.
Thanks again for taking the time to help Katherine and the firm, it's much appreciated!
I feel informed and confident that if something happened to me, everything will be taken care of. I highly recommend Katherine and Jeffrey Scott & Associates.
In 2012, I needed legal advice in an unemployment issue. I first sought out counsel with Jeffrey, and after kindly listening to my case, he told me that he was not the one to take it--that he was not qualified. Instead he gave me the name of a colleague that he thought would do an excellent job. His recommendation was exactly what I needed. What I found remarkable was that Jeffrey could have kept me as a client and earned more income; but he did not. His integrity and utmost professionalism has made me one of his biggest cheerleaders.

It's a simple phone call, which could easily begin the process to change your legacy.
Recently my partner had to move into a long term care facility. We determined that this was a good time to update all of our estate documents. I contacted S&A and was introduced to Katherine Wertheim Iacarellla. What a pleasure!
Katie was meticulous in reviewing all previous documents and explaining all the suggested updates. She made it clear that we could act on her recommendations or propose other language or items to be covered. There was never a sense of pressuring or that she was disinterested in working with us. Her manner is highly professional, but she is an extremely people oriented lawyer who truly exhibits an interest in her clients and their needs.
She is totally focused on her law practice and never finds a client's question inappropriate or trivial. We feel very lucky to have Katie as our estate planning and elder law attorney.
