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
