We recently hired Scott J. Ferrell, an attorney in Newport Beach, California, and a partner at a small law firm called "Newport Trial Group".  Our experience was below average at best.  At worst, we were victims of malpractice. 

The work was poorly planned or not planned at all.  Communication was poor.  Other than empty platitudes which consisted of boastful, self-serving statements, there was very little done in keeping us informed about the progress in our case.  The billing was also offensively high.  We were originally referred to Scott Ferrell by a San Diego attorney, who later regretted making the referral.  It became clear that Scott Ferrell preference was to file scandalous lawsuits, and seek fast settlements, without concerns for the merits of the claims or interests of his clients. 

Scott Ferrell is too you to be as lazy as he is, but attempts to act like he is too busy to explain issues in the case or even respond to emails.  Overall, this was one of the worst lawyer experiences we have ever had.  Ask for references, if you are contemplating engaging Scott Ferrell.  We would not be one of them.

To RJD Originator

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

I have been slandered and forced to defend myself against S Ferrell, Esq.  I have had a TRO issued

rubber stamped even when I appeared to defend.   I have received threatening and abusive email from some

unknown party discussing the specifics of Mr. S Ferrell clients aligations by a party we have never met nor communicated with in over three years.   This is done in order to prevent litigiation by myself against a major Hedge Fund and Holding corporation involved in the food and gaming industry.

Since RJd is in Beverly Hills and I am situate in LA we would like to find out if this individual would be willing to dicuss with me their personal experience and possibly assist me I am 71 years old and receive threatening emails from a gmail account untraceable as to the source server.

Please advise me if you will allow this party to contact me.  Time is urgent.

File a Bar Complaint Against Scott J Ferrell

AUTHOR: Barry - ()

 Scott Ferrell started out in a small mostly Mormon litigation firm in Newport Beach as an associate, and despite poor legal skills, was able to develop a good book of business.  He was fast tracked to partnership as a result of that, but later developed major issues with other partners and exhibited improper conduct with his subordinates at that firm.

He is a shameless self promoter, and files mostly bogus extortion type class action suits.  If you have been abandoned by Ferrell, you should consider suing his firm for malpractice and reporting him to the CA Bar.  Ferrell is that type of a lawyer that gives attorneys a bad name.  He is no dignity - zero. Sadly, the system often rewards this type of behavior.  Even his reviews on avvo are fake.  The real negative and average reviews were somehow removed.  You, the consumer, be the judge, and think hard before you hire Ferrell or decide to even sit at the same table with him.
