“Mr. Ogden was so kind and understanding! He spent three hours helping me figure out what to do during our consultation in order to get custody of our niece and nephew, and when our hearing date came and the hearing officer wanted to reschedule us (which would have caused us to pay more), he went in and argued for us, and we were seen that day! I knew exactly what to do and what was going to happen in the hearing too, so there were no surprises. Everything went great and now we have custody of our niece and nephew! We hope to have Mr. Ogden help us with adoption next!!”

I just want to say that Scott Ogden is truly an awesome attorney. He is honest, hardworking, understanding and has a way to make what you feel to be the worse situation in your life not so bad.
