Our Clients Say it Best
  • My expe­ri­ence with Mr. Scafide could not have been bet­ter. He pos­sesses not only a keen mind, but a true under­stand­ing of the oppo­si­tion, which assisted us in achiev­ing the best pos­si­ble objec­tive. I have used Mr. Scafide’s ser­vices on many occa­sions, and rec­om­mend him to my clos­est friends.–Joe, Carpin­te­ria

  • Mr. Scafide rep­re­sented me in a com­mer­cial real estate mat­ter. He was so effec­tive that, at times, I actu­ally felt sorry for the other side. Attor­ney Scafide is bril­liant, resource­ful, cre­ative, and was com­pletely hon­est about every aspect of a case, includ­ing what I could expect as a real­is­tic out­come. His billing was fair –his hourly rate is not low, but he is a bar­gain given the excel­lent qual­ity of ser­vice.–Chris, Santa Barbara

  • If you’re look­ing for an hon­est and pro­fes­sional attor­ney who bills eth­i­cally, con­tact him. Mr. Scafide is the best lawyer I know and I have used many.–Bill, Santa Barbara
