  • The team went above and beyond to help both my case outcome and my sanity. .

    I saw firsthand the kind of hours and hard work Scott, Ben, Mallory, and the whole team at the Edgett Law Firm puts into the cases they take on, and it was more than enough for a perfect outcome to my case. Scott and Ben were able to successfully navigate multiple meetings with two separate investigating bodies and put together a packet of information and testimonials for the Grand Jury that ultimately resulted in my case being rightfully no billed. They were even able to charge me a reduced flat rate for their services given the circumstances of the case, which they continued to honor even when there were unexpected expenses like a polygraph test. I suspect my case ended up being more work than they initially anticipated, given the two separate investigating bodies and my own constant questions and fears, but they handled it all no problem and were very patient with my long lists of questions. I feel Scott and his team went above and beyond to help both my case outcome, and my sanity through the process. Scott and Ben would answer my calls at odd hours and were willing to hear my concerns when I had them and assure me that my case was being handled properly. The proof is in the perfect outcome I got.

  • Great team and great experience. I would recommend this office to anyone.
    Scott and Ben are GREAT. They will clearly communicate everything during the case and keep you well informed. Scott told me from the first consultation what I should anticipate through out the case, and everything went exactly as he said. Ben was very attentive and knowledgeable as well. Great team and great experience. I would recommend this office to anyone.

  • Thanks Ben for changing my life and blessing me and my family! I highly recommend this firm and attorneys if you want to get the best outcome on your case!
    I spoke with several attorneys about a case I was battling. When I spoke to Ben Schwartz I knew this was the firm I wanted to retain. I’m so glad I did because Ben got me the best outcome on my case and I was able to land my new job! He was honest and up front about everything and kept in touch with me the entire time. The office staff was very helpful from the get go too. Thanks Ben for changing my life and blessing me and my family! I highly recommend this firm and attorneys if you want to get the best outcome on your case!

  • His determination was strong, his willingness stronger.
    I chose Scott Edgett as my lawyer during a very trying time in my life. Having compared him to others in his field & having no references, I chose him mainly upon his character. His determination was strong, his willingness stronger. The outcome of my case was more than I could have asked for. He kept me informed every step during my proceedings. I would highly recommend his services to anyone. In fact my daughter used him recently with a favorable outcome. Thank You Mr. Edgett !!

    - Janet

  • Will fight to protect his clients rights in any situation.
    Scott is a hands on lawyer who is compassionate to his clients needs and personal issues. He works diligently and will fight to protect his clients rights in any situation. I would not have made it through my own personal situation without his help and care. Hands down the best!

  • He told me at the beginning I will take care of it and he did.
    Some filed telephone harassment charges against me and Attorney Scott Edgett got the phone records and proved it was false and got my case dismissed. He told me at the beginning I will take care of it and he did. I was very nervous and he worked hard doing thing I was not aware of to get the proof when I found out I realize how he was very good at what he did. He didn't give me a roller coaster type communication he was very reserved and when he called it was great news. What a great job. Thanks

    - Former Client

  • He's a great communicator
    Scott is an extremely knowledgeable lawyer with a decade + worth of real world practice on legal issues. He's a great communicator who took the time to explain what was going on and what my options are. He kept me informed and I knew I was in good hands with his knowledge of the law.

    - Zach R.

  • I would recommend him anytime anyone asks me for a good lawyer.
    This guy is awsome. He helped my husband with every step and explain everything that was going on in detail. I would recommend him anytime anyone asks me for a good lawyer. Thanks again Scott for all your hard work on our case

    - Karen

  • Very attentive and well organized.
    Scott helped me get an excellent settlement agreement, under difficult circumstances. He made sure I understood and agreed to every aspect of the settlement. I felt very comfortable with him at court, and I was confident that he could get me the agreement that I wanted. Very attentive and well organized. Thank you for all of your help.

    - Melissa F.

  • They always let me know what was going on
    Scott and his staff are wonderful. I am big on communication and they did just that. They always let me know what was going on and guided me in the right direction. I highly recommend Scott Edgett! Thank you!

  • If you dont trust any other lawyers in Texas, you can trust him.
    Hey I'm a military guy and have traveled all over the world. I have been in trouble in a lot of states. I thank god I contacted Scott. From the first day he took over my case I was at ease about everything. He is the best lawyer I have ever had and seen. Knows the courtroom and knows the law. It doesn't matter how serious your case is he can handle it. Everyone told me I was going to prison, so I called Scott Edgett. Now im thinking about where my next vacation will be. He is the best arms down and i was amazed and what he was able to do. If you dont call Scott you might wish u had. If you want win he is your guy. If you dont trust any other lawyers in Texas, you can trust him. Time he gets your case relax its already handled!!!!! He cares about his clients.

  • My only frustration is that I wasn't able to find him sooner
    I searched for a lawyer for a somewhat "involved" case of expungement for misdemeanor crime committed when I was a juvenile. It was covered by two separate statutes, making for some ambiguity. I must have talked to fifteen different lawyers whose opinions varied from "no possibility of expunction" to "its a gamble" based on which district judge picked up the case. Mr. Edgett was not only better acquainted with the individual statues than the other lawyers, but he knew of the specific conventions with which these cases are handled in the Dallas area, and how we could proceed with near certainty of expungement. He was prompt, courteous, reassuring, approachable, and professional. My only frustration is that I wasn't able to find him sooner, as he did not appear on most of the relevant internet searches. A fantastic attorney, I recommend him with the fullest confidence.

  • He is truly a good man who cares about his clients

    When I violated my Felony Probation with another Felony, I was sure I was going to prison. Due to some abuse that happened while I was in a county jail, I came to see Scott telling him of my plan to commit suicide rather than go to jail. I was crying so hard I could barely speak to him. He took out a Sharpie and wrote my 3 young children's names on my hand. Them he told me to go home and pack a bag and get to medical detox, and then rehab. Within 4 days, I couldn't believe I was ever in a suicidal state of mind. I would never leave my children like that. It was the pain pills (drugs) talking, not me. Once I was clean and home from rehab, I became very involved in NA. At Scott's recommendation, i had every meeting I attended signed on a form to show the court my involvement. I followed every suggestion that he made, and every thing he told me to do, I did. My cases were Theft, not drugs so the ADA didn't want to "cut a deal" because of rehab and NA. Scott went over their heads, and met with the DA, and was able to get me into Drug Court since I was stealing to support my habit. With 8 months clean, I start the Drug Court Program, and am placed back on Felony Probation. A true MIRACLE!!! He has told me this is my last chance, and I know without him and his advice I would not be alive today to have this chance. He is truly a good man who cares about his clients, and not just what the best deal he can get them is. He has let me pay out my balance over time, and has even been able to have my court date reset when I had a family emergency. When you hire Scott, you don't just get his extensive expertise, you get a good man with a good heart who ALWAYS takes into account his clients best interest. Even my 7 year old knows that Scott "is the man that saved mommy's life". I joke with him that he continues to pull miracles out of his pocket. He jokes back "just wait 'till you see me walk on water". I think he probably could do it!!! I trust this man with my life, and every aspect of it. I hope I never have cause to need an attorney again, but if I do, there is ONLY one name I would consider, and that would be Scott Edgett. He truly did save my life, and by doing that he gave my husband back his wife, and my children back their mom.

  • The only straight shooter who did not use scare tactics to get me to hire him.
    I view myself as a model citizen, but in this day and age you never know what events can put you in a bad situation. I found myself in some trouble a couple years ago and interviewed about half a dozen lawyers. What I found was a lot of well educated attorneys that could represent me, but Scott was the only straight shooter who did not use scare tactics to get me to hire him. Once I chose Scott to represent me he had an agreed sum that I was to pay. That sum did not change. Scott Edgett worked very hard on my behalf and did not settle for the states first offer. He definitely minimized the damage this could have caused me and in the end all charges have been exponged from my record. I couldn't have hoped for anything more. If in need of a criminal defense attorney don't hesitate and call Scott Edgett first.

    - Former Client

  • Very professional and caring for his clients.
    He helped me through the DWI process.... very professional and caring for his clients. Thanks to a friend of mine who recommended me his services. Thank you, Mr. Scott for your hard work... god bless you and your family.

  • Scott saved me from throwing more money away
    I was pulled over for 'riding to close'. I follow the traffic laws the best I can, but the above was one I never heard about nor any intention to cause troubles. The main deal, was the latter is nothing more to check you registration, insurance with many more opportunities to generate city revenue. Unfortunately, due to the infamous surcharges, I found my License was also suspended. I called Scott immediately, and thereafter both tickets will not see the light or day. First, he made the driving too close go away. Next, he worked with Little Elm to allow me a chance to get my License in good standing, which was HUGE in order to not gather additional outrageous Surcharges for another 3 years. Bottom line. Scott saved me from throwing more money away to a surcharge program that has done greater harm than good to hard working folks across Texas.

  • You won't regret hiring Edgett!
    It's hard to find a lawyer who is not only good at what he does but makes you feel comfortable and secure in your decision. The moment I talked to Scott on the phone, I knew he understood and I knew he was the right guy. He actually cares and takes the time to review your entire case and find all ways possible to help. And from being in a courtroom with him he seems very known and very liked by the court committee. He gets straight to the point and doesn't mess around. He's a wonderful lawyer and will work with you until your satisfied. He is the only lawyer I will ever review and recommend. You won't regret hiring Edgett!

    - Krista

  • He knows the in's and out's of Dallas County.
    I hired Scott twice on MTR's and he handled both timely and got the results I needed. He knows the in's and out's of Dallas County. 10 out of 10 if I find myself back in the place to where I need a lawyer Scott will be my first call.

    - Matt

  • He is truly a Godsend
    First of all, I just wanted to say that Scott did the UNDO ABLE!!!! Everyone(attorneys) said that I would be facing jail time FOR SURE. Scott was so caring and at the same time realistic. He reassured me that I WOULD NOT go to jail, but I had to completely comply with any of the courts conditions. He is truly a Godsend, and there is no amount of money that I can put on what he has done for me. It's quite simple, really. If you make a mistake, or have deeper rooted problems, he WILL fight for you. How many attorneys have TEN star reviews. I am just SO indebted to him and encourage anyone who falls on hard times due to WHATEVER, it is MORE than worth your time to meet with him!!!! I think that you will agree!!!!

  • An attorney who will go above and beyond
    Mr. Edgett was thorough in his work involving my case. He assisted me in understanding what were the possible outcomes of my trial, so I can fully acknowledge what would or could happen. I will gladly recommend Scott to represent anyone who is in need of an attorney who will go above and beyond to making sure they are represented with dignity!

    - Yvonne M.

  • Scott Edgett was definitely the best decision!
    After fighting a state felony for almost 2 years, Scott was able to get my charge dismissed! Throughout the whole process he made me feel very comfortable with him as my attorney and never pushed me to do anything I wasn't comfortable with. He's patient and very thorough. Answers calls and text at any time of day or night, or returns promptly. Not only was he there for me, but his staff is also very friendly and did everything to help me. 
    Scott Edgett was definitely the best decision!

    - Former Client

  • I am forever grateful to him and his staff.
    My life has changed drastically after a very bad situation. School, work, and my whole life was put on hold. After the meeting with Mr. Edgett, I have entrusted my case with him because of his understanding and knowledge. He is caring, aggressive, reassuring, and professional. Not only did he care about the case, but he also cared about my wellbeing. I was going through emotional roller coasters for the past 2 years. I would not have done it without Mr. Edgett. I am forever grateful to him and his staff. He reassured me that I will be okay, and he got my case dismissed before the trial. He always responds to calls or texts in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him with fullest confidence. Thank you again from me and my family!

  • I am incredibly grateful for him and his paralegal
    Scott was able to dismiss a misdemeanor case of mine BEFORE trial! I talked to several different attorneys before hiring him and I felt the most comfortable with him and the options he gave. I am incredibly grateful for him and his paralegal, Lucas. The result that I got was better than what other attorney could give. He is an EXCELLENT attorney and I would highly highly recommend!!

    - Former Client

  • Scott will fight till the end for you
    Not only was Scott my attorney but was a great friend to me and my family. He treated all of us with great respect. My case was DISMISSED during trial. Scott will fight till the end for you and will believe in you. I couldn't have made it through the 2 years without him. May God bless you Scott!

  • He was smart... He was aggressive... And ultimately won the trial
    Scott Edgett is an excellent attorney!!! I am a public figure. A very petty individual made a petty attempt to ruin my reputation and public perception by pressing bogus misdemeanor assault charges against me. Scott worked hard to get those charges dismissed without going to trial. Despite Scott's efforts, the case went to trial anyway. Scott was prepared... He was smart... He was aggressive... And ultimately won the trial and got the charges dismissed! It was really impressive to see how he argued my case. I have never had any issues with the law. Sometimes when you are successful... petty people spitefully attack your character. Being falsely accused for something like assault can cause you a lot of concern and make you feel anxious and uncomfortable. But there is really no need to worry. You are in good hands with Scott Edgett. My only regret was having any worries at all. I can now get back to my normal life, with my reputation in tact, thanks to Scott. This man is really good at what he does and I will always be appreciative.

  • The most knowledgeable, nonjudgemental, down to earth, personable attorney
    I got sent to Mr. Edgett by a friend durring probably the worst time in my life, was kicked out of my home, seperated from my family and mentally beaten down. I sent a message on his website and he called personally within minutes. The trial took nearly two years and never once did he or his professional friends ever let me or my wife despair, or let the state brake us down. He is by far and along way the most knowledgeable, nonjudgemental, down to earth, personable attorney and professional man I've ever worked with. I recommend him to absolutely everyone I know, no questions asked. Thanks for believing us buddy!

    - Mwoolery

  • He was very respectful of our perspective
    Scott did a great job and got a win for us. He was very respectful of our perspective and the challenges we were feeling. I would recommend Scott to anyone who needs an attorney who is prepared and ready to win in a trial especially. He presented our case in trial, adapted on the fly in the trial as new information came out and got us a "not guilty". We are grateful to him and his wonderful team.

    - Former Client

  • He will fight for you!
    Had multiple felonies and misdemeanors and Mr. Edgett got all charges dropped. He's amazing, kind, and won't roll over and cut deals. He will fight for you!

    - Jeremy

  • I couldn't ask for a better outcome
    When I was ticketed with misdemeanor assault, you could fill a thimble with what I knew of the law. So I asked Scott Edgett to help me with the case, and despite its misdemeanor status, he agreed! He prepared my misdemeanor case like he was going to take it to trial, and got all kinds of information on the case. Lo and behold, when he went in front of the city attorney, not only did the city attorney opt to dismiss my case, but also my attacker's too (she was family)! I couldn't ask for a better outcome and I didn't even know a joint dismissal was an option. Thank you Scott!!

    - Tina

  • Wish I would've hired him first.

    I cannot say enough positive things about Scott. He was hired at the last minute, after a horrible (and expensive) experience with a Dallas attorney. There was little time to prepare for my case but he went above & beyond, exceeding expectations. Collin County wanted to (and could have) sent me to prison for a very long time. Scott got the Judge to agree to probation. As a registered citizen, my families lives have forever changed and we're thankful to have Scott continuing to represent me. Wish I would've hired him first.

    - Bryan

  • Very patient, professional and trustworthy.
    Scott is an Extraodinary attorney. He hepled me to get my misdemeanor case dismissed without even going to trial. He is very patient, professional and trustworthy. I would strongly recommed Scott. God bless you Scott!

    - Srikanth

  • The case was ultimately dismissed.
    I had a small case and reached out to Scott and his team for assistance. They handled it even though it was fairly minor. The case was ultimately dismissed. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Thanks Scott, Ben and Lucas

  • Thorough, empathetic and 100% on top of everything
    I have had the amazing pleasure of working with Scott for the past several months. Scott and his team were thorough, empathetic and 100% on top of everything that had to do with my case. Scott knows the law extremely well. Additionally, he has a tremendous report with his fellow lawyers as well as the judges and is obviously extremely likable with his colleagues. Scott worked wonders for me and he kept me in the loop throughout in the entire process. His take charge attitude and his confidence in what he does is seriously second to none. I strongly recommend Scott as a trusted force who will be do right by you every step of the way.

    - Mitchell

  • Aggressive, knowledgeable and very capable

    Scott is an excellent attorney.

    When I met with Scott for our first consultation he listened to my case, explained the process and allowed me to ask questions. He stated that it would be a lengthy process but he was going to press for a dismissal.

    I felt no pressure from Scott. At the end of our first meeting I asked him to take my case. I didn’t need to look any further. I felt I had the right guy to represent me. In the end, I was right. Scott was able to convince the DA to dropped the case at the pre-trial.

    Unfortunately, in today’s society anyone can make accusations against you and force you to spend time and money defending yourself in a broken legal system. You’ll need someone who is aggressive, knowledgeable and very capable. That person for me was Scott Edgett.

    I pray that I never have to go through something like this again but, if I do, my first call will be to Scott.

  • I am so grateful to have had his services!
    Scott Edgett is by far the best attorney in Plano! I am so grateful to have had his services!

  • He genuinely cared about me and my family.
    Scott is an incredible attorney. If it wasn't for him, I'd be sitting in jail right now. I had violated felony probation by getting arrested again while on felony probation, and he doesn't take no for an answer. If the ADA days no.... She's doing jail time, he goes over their head and make an appointment with the DA. The DA worked with him and placed me back on probation with no jail time. I was looking at 1 to 3 years, and instead I'm sitting at home with my husband and 3 wonderful children. I would recommend Scott to anyone. He genuinely cared about me and my family. He's a wonderful man, and an extraordinary attorney.

    - Victoria

  • He was pleasant to work with, informative and very down to earth.

    We retained Scott to represent our 18 year old son on multiple charges and are thankful we did. Robert was facing charges on Unlawful Carrying of a Firearm along with multiple cases of Possession of Marijuana <2 oz, needless to say, we were very concerned about the potential outcome. Scott took the time to talk to us and explain what options we might have and what to expect out of the court system. He was patient with us and answered all of our questions, he made himself available to us anytime we had a question, including nights and weekends. 


    Scott was incredible working with the DA, he was able to work out a plea deal for 5 cases, which was exactly what my son wanted. While as a mother, I wanted my son to avoid having a record at all cost by doing the drug corp program, it wasn't what my son wanted. Robert was beyond excited to find out that Scott was able to get him a plea deal of 20 days for each case to be served concurrently with credit for 12 days time served. He was also able to work out weekend jail beginning in two weeks, allowing Robert time to make arrangements with his employer. 


    I am very thankful to Scott for all of his work on these cases and for making a difficult situation easier to go through. Scott's fees were very reasonable and having an option of a payment plan was so helpful. If I ever find myself in need of an attorney again, I will not hesitate to call Scott. He was pleasant to work with, informative and very down to earth. He has a real passion for what he does and he was amazing with making both my son and myself feel at ease with the entire process.

  • He knows the law & your rights.
    Scott is the best lawyer. Me & my family call on in for any legal matter we have. He always gets the best results, he knows the law & your rights. I definitely recommend Scott Edgett to anyone who wants fast, fair results in your defense case .

    - Carleton

  • Very thorough, consistent, and trustworthy!
    Mr. Edgett has helped my family beyond measures! First he helped my brother out of a hole we never thought was possible! And now years later, he is going above and beyond to help my husband through his case. He is very thorough, consistent, and trustworthy! Thank you sir for all you have done and are doing! I would recommend Scott Edgett to anyone!

    - Kaylee

  • 5 stars across the board

    I Highly recommend Scott. He truly cares about his clients. Very Genuine. My case was a class "A" misdemeanor and he got it reduced to a class "C", with a very low fine and will be ex-sponge completely very soon. I highly recommend him... Thanks Scott !!!

    5 stars across the board

  • He is insightful, calm, assured & always keeps the client up to date.
    Scott was able to achieve an outcome in a difficult situation that was more than I could have expected. He is insightful, calm, assured & always keeps the client up to date. He has plan A ready in detail, but he does not lose a step if he has to switch to plan B. I would recommend Scott without hesitation.

    - Gail

  • He was very relaxed and honest with me.

    Honestly, I had no idea what to expect from a lawyer, but when I consulted with him he gave me a lot more options than other lawyers I had seen. While all told me I'd have to go on probation, he promised me ways to impress the judge so that my sentence would be easy. I could text or call him at any time and he was very relaxed and honest with me. If I couldn't make a payment one day, he would give me another day or two to get it to him without pestering me. He has a lot of experience with different cases and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is new to the legal system. (Esp. drug related cases.)

    - Former Client

  • Thank you from the bottom of my heart from me and my family!

    NOT GUILTY!!!!

    I'm fortunate to have an attorney that not only is knowledgeable but also compassionate.

    What I went through for 22 months was life changing and I will forever be indebted to the Edgett Law Firm.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart from me and my family!

    May God continue to bless you in all that you do.
