Mr Pennington handled three traffic violations my husband received in Bloomfield. We were very concerned about points and Mr Pennington handled everything flawlessly with the best possible outcome. We would highly recommend him for any traffic violations as he really saved us from what could have been a nightmare.

I would like to start off first by thanking Scott Pennington and his law office for helping me win my case! This Gentleman is the best at what he does. Him and his law office carefully assisted me with all my issues and concerns and came up with the best possible outcome based on my issue. I was under the impression that my case would be lengthy but we accomplished everything in better time than I expected. I went from possibly losing my license for two year to just a small fine. So, once again thank you for your hard work and effort Mr. Pennington. To anybody reading this I highly recommend Scott Pennington for any traffic case you may be facing!!!!! If I could I would give 10 stars! Edward Wallace

Ms. Bennett Pennington and Kendall are so deeply compassionate and truly understand their clients. A friend of mine is deaf and therefore is often misunderstood. Kendall and Ms. Bennet conversed with him with no problem. They spoke using hand motion and emphasized lip wording. They truly treated him as if it were someone in their own family and understood his needs to communicate. The client was totally comfortable with them. He felt secure knowing they understood what he was trying to explain and what his concerns were. This client rode his bicycle faithfully several miles up and back on appointments and to pay his fees owed. They showed kindness and compassion above and beyond, This is rare when someone knows how to speak to and help someone that usually generates frustration and often anger with others. . I am truly grateful to them both. They are a GREAT team and fought hard for this client and brought him to a very favorable outcome. I thank you Ms. Bennett Pennington and Kendall.
