Scroggins Law Group is ACQUISITIVE, GREEDY, and SCANDALOUS! I can guarantee this company is violating ethical policies and have OVERCHARGED many of their clients. I find it very unethical that their billing personnel (Meera McEwen) would write a 5 star review after claiming that she spent $475k in her divorce with Scroggins Law Group. Now having to work for that very firm to pay back debts. When I started out this attorney researching process, I came across Scroggins Law Group, PLLC through superlawyers dot com website, which later came to find out that this site is only designed for each attorney to praise one another, a buddy buddy system. With the good qualifications listed I thought that they could protect me as a client in a divorce case with no children. I asked them for a consultation in which they charged $650. This was expensive, but I believed that they could help with my situation...Mark Scroggins, the owner, told me that they could help. He had attorneys in mind (Jennifer Else and Nicole Biscoe), and they would help relieve the stress. They started out strong spending lots of money to investigate this or that, but never completed anything. As it turns out, I had paid for a lot of research but NO motions were filed to protect me or my assets. During this proceess they laid off my primary paralegal contact, who was on top of everything and completely understanding. She was transparent with clear details when she asked for information. After this however, I had to pay for the new paralegal to be trained and she had review my entire case again. They had many discussions between this new paralegal (Meera McEwen) and the attorneys, Jennifer Else and Nicole Biscoe. Then charged against my trust fund without my consent. When I couldn't replenish my trust fund fully in time Meera McEwen unprofessionally told me that my payment of 2K was not good enough. On top of the MANY discussions, they had meetings twice a month on my case for additional charges. These charges were a guaranteed $1000 or more each month. This company would literally triple charge me for meetings, at a minimum charge of .25 hour. The owner of the company, Mark Scroggins, the attorneys, and paralegals would all discuss my case even when they had NO work being actually performed after an entire month. During that time I had been waiting for them to send off discovery questions. This company keeps postponing my case to further drain the trust fund. Just to get my mediation date they had me wait 7 months and charged 8K in between purely for meetings. Long before my case was on track, but once they laid off the paralegal, they were very inefficient and became very behind on my case. I was supposed to have mediation in January, but by the end of this they stated they could not get a date until April. Three months later = $3000 in their pockets. After I had asked them to help reduce bills by sending or waiting for those items that did not benefit me, they continued to be worse and send email after email further charging me $100 for every email sent which were duplicates of one another. They also started to ignore me by stating that they were out of the office. Then after December I had gotten COVID and was extremely sick and thought I was not going to make it. I had called the company in late December to talk to the attorney about my case and explained to the receptionist that I ONLY wanted to speak to the attorney Jennifer Else, she asked that I speak to the paralegal Estina Reynolds, and I stated NO, I need to talk to the attorney. She has never returned my call to date. Also, in December my phone was shut off which was my primary and only contact to this Law firm. In February, I received a response to sign off to drop them from my case, I was in the process of replying before I had received that information but had wanted to gather my details. Stay AWAY from this law firm unless you want to throw away your life savings.
