Rave Reviews

I can't say enough about Scott's tremendous representation and outcome on my speeding ticket case. He skillfully achieved the just result I was hoping for, and a more favorable verdict than I imagined possible. He gets a "10" from me for his responsive, attentive and professional lawyering.

In addition, his use of current and innovative technology to correspond, and keep me updated on my case, was amazing. He even emailed to let me know when he was en route to court and called immediately after the proceeding.

As an attorney myself, I am impressed on every level.

From the initial consultation to the final not guilty verdict, Scott was a true professional. He listened intently and put my fears at ease through the whole process by explaining the possible and probable outcomes as well as how the judicial system works in cases like mine. I am very pleased I hired Scott. He got better results than I expected!

Scott Athen is an amazing DUI lawyer. His knowledge and his diligent effort really help me in my case. Facing several charges, all had gotten dropped because he didn't give up. I would highly recommend him if not for a DUI, for any case!!!! He is very informative and his court room knowledge really impressed me. I couldn't thank him enough for the pleasure of working with him!!!

You're truly the BEST! There's never been a second thought as to who to call whenever ANY issues with the court systems come my way. Same goes for anyone that I know that needs a SUPERSTAR attorney. You've always been there.

Through the worst of times, when there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. You've ALWAYS come through for me, my family and my friends any time that we've ever needed you. I can tell you thank you every day for the rest of my life and it wouldn't be enough.

It's because of you at some of the worst of times I've been able to keep my head above water and get my life back on track. So again thank you for everything you've done and continue to do.

I hired Scott for my second DUI which I received in Howard County. He represented me in court and at my MVA hearing as well. Throughout the entire process I felt very comfortable with Scott, his expertise and appreciated his responsiveness. His services were affordable and worth every penny. I'm happy with the outcome and praying to God I never need to hire a lawyer again but if I do, 100% it will be Scott! Thanks for everything!

I have used Scott Athen multiple times and every time I have been very pleased with the outcome. When meeting with Scott he always pays very close attention truly cares. His rates are fair and he certainly works for the money. He always stays in touch and makes sure things go smoothly after walking out of the court room and is happy to go bat if things so not go as planned. I have recommended him to many other people and they have been very satisfied as well.

Two costly (points/lose license) tickets in as many weeks oh my. With Scott's help these traumatic events had a happy ending! Or better yet the bad events did not impact our driving records. I should also mention that the entire experience with Scott was the most painless and professional experience I have ever had. Thank-you Scott!

I found Scott on the internet while searching for a traffic attorney in Ellicott City for my teenager with multiple traffic violations. After meeting with Scott I was sure I had chosen the right attorney. He definitely knows the ins and outs of traffic violations and was able to get four out of five charges completely dropped.

Scott always called me immediately after our three court dates to let us know the outcome, and at our initial meeting told us what his strategies would be for each violation and the possible outcome. Remember - you have to be proactive too. You are paying for services, so you should make sure you meet and ask questions. Scott always either picks up the phone himself, or calls you back as soon as he can.

I highly recommend him for traffic violations in Howard County and would choose him again.

Highly professional, trustworthy attorney. Knowledgeable, organized and prepared for trial. Knows a ton of people in the Howard County jurisdiction-has handled everything for me and assisted me in paperwork every step of the way! Would highly recommend Scott to any one needing defense in a DUI/DWI and CDS case.

Upon retaining Scott, he jumped on the case, assessing the potential outcome. He clearly identified and communicated the steps he would take and the likely timing of how things would play out.Not only did he demonstrate a strong understanding of the law but also how things can work in the legal system. Scott was resourceful, persistent, professional and executed just as one would hope his/her attorney would act; he also puts his clients at ease throughout the process.

I highly recommend Scott.

Explained my case very clear and detail on the initial conversation. Highly professional and smooth during the whole process.

Before talking to Scott, I was stressed from worry about getting points and court date letter. He gave me confidence in my case by explaining important things right on and the possible outcomes for my type of cases. Also, explained what actions he will take and the good reasons for those actions. I do not have to appear on court at all because Scott represented me in court. I feel so much better that I do not have to watch the judge giving out sentences to people while I wait nervously on the court bench.

Answered all my doubts and questions with patient. I did call other lawyers before Scott, but most of them was rushing to finish the calls except Scott. My phone was not working well, and disconnected 3 times, so he had to call me back like couple of times before we were able to started talking. Very good patient he showed, and it is important in my opinion for looking into my case closely with that.

Quick response and took action on court paperwork the same day after we talked on the first phone call.

I Had a speeding ticket in MD, I filled some forms online to get legal advise. Scott contacted me right away and I noticed right away that he was a professional in his field. Easy paperwork, I did everything online. Great representation, my case was real hard to get through and the case was dismissed due to facts presented by Scott. Great lawyer fully recommended. Thanks Scott 🙂

Mr. Athen did a great job handling my case, he kept me updated and responded promptly to my emails. He got me the verdict I was looking for, and represented me in court without requiring me to make an actual court appearance. Things could not have gone more smoothly--I highly recommend his services
