"We met with Scott Sumner to revise our will. He was efficient, well prepared for our meeting, and very thorough in the services he offered. After that meeting, his assistant was available to answer numerous questions as we considered our options. When we needed further advice, he was willing to give a detailed and clear written explanation that helped us make the best decisions for our complicated circumstances. We definitely recommend Scott Sumner and his staff to anyone needing to set up a Family Trust."

"Mr. Sumner was very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful to my wife and I in setting up our estate plan. We initially met with him whereby he reviewed our current status and goals, he asked us about our plans for the future and explained everything in simple terms about estate planning. He gave us homework to compile a list of all assets we owned. We met with him a second time where he presented to us our finalized estate plan in a leather binder an customized to our needs. He explained next steps and always made himself available to answer and follow up questions we had after we left his office. "

"In a lapse of judgement I left the scene of a parking lot fender-bender. I was charged with a misdemeanor for fleeing the scene of an accident. As a public schools administrator this could be potentially very embarrassing and could have negative implications for my career.

Scott Sumner was able to successfully plead my case down to a civil infraction which is the equivalent of a traffic ticket. Thanks to Scott I still have a clean criminal record and that is a huge relief! I highly recommend Scott Sumner as an attorney who will know what to do to ensure the most favorable outcome that is possible. I am very grateful I hired him to defend me."

"When we go through the trials of life there are things we need to be ready for including the death of our beloved parents. If you put off your family legal affairs until it's to late you will regret it. Trust me, the last thing you will be thinking about after a parent passes is legal paperwork, I learned it when my Mother passed. Not one single thing was prepared legally and it was a living nightmare.

I have one parent remaining and I wasn't going to live a nightmare twice. I needed a professional attorney who could get it done correctly so that when that times again I will not have to fret over legal paper work.

Mr. Sumner was professional and courteous and I would recommend him to anyone, he will be our family attorney as long as we remain."

Our family was very lucky to receive a referral from a friend to contact Scott Sumner of Sumner & Associates. We had multiple legal needs ranging from lifestyle changes to estate planning. Mr. Sumner walked us through the legal process and provided us with solutions that made sense. We will continue to strongly recommend Sumner & Associates to our friends and family!

Doug K. - Rochester Hills, MI

We used Sumner & Associates, PC to advise and direct us with our family estate planning. We own several properties and Scott was instrumental in providing us with the necessary documents for our Trust to keep our assets protected from the State coffers. Will go to Sumner again for any future concerns, should the need arise. Trustworthy. Honest. Brilliant. A Specialist in managing legal affairs.

Scott was professional and knowledgable in his Estate Planning services. He spent time evaluating our needs and making recommendations. His office packaged all of our Estate Planning documents in a nice binder for storage. I would highly recommend Scott.

Alfred B. - Novi, MI

We had a child that was being accused of a driving infraction that was trumped up by overzealous local police officers. We chose Scott to represent us as it was clear he knew the law and it's proceedings. We had the best outcome for the situation and would highly recommend him to defend family, friends and acquaintances.​

“I didn’t know what to do when my wife filed for divorce. I didn’t even want a divorce! But the best call I made was to Scott. I called and scheduled a free office conference with Scott Sumner and he did everything he said he would in the letter. He already knew about my case including who my judge was and who the other lawyer was. I learned a lot about the divorce process, my situation and even specific amount of child support and alimony. He offered me a refundable retainer fee agreement and made a tough situation easy. He’s a good guy to work with!”

Larry, Troy, MI

“My wife filed for Divorce and I contacted Sumner & Associates, before I was served by some guy who came to my house. The paper work did not make a lot of sense but my wife and I talked and she said that she was going to dismiss the case because we were getting along and she wants to try to work it out for the kids. But the dismissal papers never came. She said she called her lawyer but they still never came. She kept telling me that the attorney was preparing the dismissal but the deadline for me to file a reply was getting too close. I went to Scott Sumner for an office visit. He showed me that even though the documents said I had 21-28 days to reply, there was another document called an Ex Parte Order that I needed to file and answer within (14) days.

Dale, Clawson, MI

“I knew my husband was filing for divorce but he told me I did not have to do anything. He said that his lawyer would put our agreement together for me to look over. When I got Scott’s letter it said that I had to file an Answer to the documents with in a certain amount of time. My husband said it didn’t matter. Scott also advised me of rights that I have that my husband and I never ever talked about. I wanted to believe my husband, but, this is DIVORCE and I knew there was more to it, so I called. You need to schedule a meeting with Scott Sumner and take him up on the office conference. I was “blown away” by what I learned about my rights, my children, my rights to support and the entire divorce process.

Karen, Rochester Hills, MI

“At first I was shocked, to find out that my husband filed for divorce. Then I was angry that he filed for divorce without telling me. But, I was glad to know about the divorce before a stranger showed up at my door to serve me papers. I called Sumner & Associates, and made an appointment with Scott. During our meeting I found out that he already knew who the other lawyer was and that I could hire him right then and there. He contacted that other lawyer and Scott had the Divorce papers sent right to him. This was a big relief!”

Kimberly, White Lake, MI

Unfortunately, I will not be around when the plan is executed, but I am additionally confident that this will go smoothly, according to my wishes and to the maximum benefit of my heirs. I thank Scott for the fine work he has done and believe that you, too, will have an equally positive experience with an equally positive result.

Michael L.

Furthermore, he carefully and patiently answered any questions and covered many contingencies. He also explained how over time to keep the estate plan up to date.

The three critical pillars of estate planning are the plan, the maintenance and the execution. I am confident that Scott thoroughly knows his subject and has implemented a solid estate plan.

The most important financial decision I will make in my life is estate planning. I believe I made an excellent decision in selecting Scott Sumner to assist me with this task.

I want to use this opportunity to simply say Thank You. I'm extremely satisfied and happy with the outcome of my divorce case, and how it was legally approach by you. I'm grateful and appreciate all your support, understanding, patience, and counsel throughout the divorce process. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I've already started spreading the good word of your top-notch service, responsiveness, reliability and dependability.

Thank You !!!

E.L.

Out of all the attorneys I have ever had, Scott is by far the best when it comes to quality, delivery, cost and customer satisfaction. He definitely deserves a five out of five rating.
