Will Fight for The Largest Settlement Possible

"For anyone looking for a lawyer who will fight for the largest settlement possible, I recommend Shachtman Law Firm. They were very knowledgeable, thorough and informative through out the whole process."

Police Dispatcher Electrically Shocked Through a Radio Headset

“I was injured on the job and Scott Shachtman came highly recommended. During my initial meeting with Scott, he immediately got on the phone and called people regarding my injury. Scott kept me and my family informed of every step. He was kind and really understood my pain and illness and worked around that.

Scott went over all the legal information with me. My injury doesn’t allow me to function like I used to. I had so much confidence in Scott that I left everything up to him. He was in constant contact and walked me through every step. Scott has become a wonderful “fixture” in my life. He is there whenever I call and never “puts me off”.

I felt comfortable telling him “do whatever you think is best” and he did. My case was settled without going to court and that was a blessing. It took over three years but it would have been harder on me if I didn’t have people that I could trust.”

“My name is Meka and I am glad I came to know Scott Shachtman. I was a passenger in a car accident on 12-31-04. The previous lawyer that I obtained didn’t have the knowledge needed in order to help me settle my legal issues with my car insurance company. He was able to find Sly James Law firm with Scott Shachtman as one of the active lawyers. The Sly James Firm agreed to take over my case in June 2008. A little over a year later, in September 2009, my case was settled with Mr. Shachtman’s help. He went above and beyond to help set things right. If it wasn’t for him I don’t think my case would have been settled.”

“Scott Shachtman beyond being the experienced trial lawyer he is- is a great individual as a friend, family member, and humanitarian. And with those bases, he is the lawyer you want on your side. My experience with Shachtman is nothing but excellent even through the difficulty of my case. Shachtman was able to not only to get answers from the defendants but also fend off offensive lawyers with his extensive knowledge and experience- learning from “The Best in the Bar” Sylvester “Sly” James Jr. amongst his colleague Michael J. Mohlman, a superb trio. If I ever needed a person to refer to towards any legal situation or advice, indeed Scott Shachtman would be my number one choice.”


Personable and Compassionate

Scott, and his law firm has been a major blessing for me and my family. He believed in us, and fought tirelessly to secure compensation for the loss of our mom. After a multitude of K.C. attorneys slammed the door in our faces. He said yes, and never wavered. He was very personable, and compassionate. He took the time to get acquainted with mom through photos, and interviews from her family. He understood, with the info that he received from us that Mom was truly special, and still had a lot of love left to give to her family and others. In the end Scott was even more generous with his portion of the settlement. Very, very, Fair! What a great law firm. If I could give more than five stars. They'd deserve every one of them!


I Wouldn't Trade Him as My Lawyer for Anyone Else

"Attorney Scott Shachtman has been the best lawyer I could find for years. He has been helpful and very consistent with each case he has handled for me. His assistant Mary too has also been very helpful. They are a dynamic duo, they get all the information needed and they do it in a timely manner. If I have any needs or concerns I always reach out to Scott first. He's the best and his team is the best. I wouldn't trade him as my lawyer for anyone else. Very very professional, along side of he makes you feel like family."

Medical Malpractice

“Scott Shachtman represented us in a medical malpractice lawsuit that we brought against a physician. We were very impressed and pleased with the representation that Scott provided for us in this suit.

We feel that Scott possesses many fine attributes as an attorney. He was very approachable, down to earth, and friendly. He communicated well with us at all times during the case. He always kept advised as the case progressed. He was very prompt in returning our calls to him.

He was very thorough and did not leave any stone unturned. He pursued every possible avenue that was helpful in the case. We feel that he “held the defendants’ feet to the fire,” so to speak.

He was very hard-working and employed innovative techniques in various phases of the case. He took a genuine interest in us as clients.

We would highly recommend Scott Shachtman as an attorney for legal representation.”

Dangerous Driving Results in Wreck

“I first met Scott in 2007, I was having problems with an insurance company and the first attorney that I had dropped me. I called Scott and he took my case.

I went for a consultation and he really made me feel that I mattered and he was going to do his best to make sure I was compensated for the injury I had sustained.

So now whenever I have a legal matter where I need someone to fight for me, I call Scott, who now is taking care of a legal matter for my wife. We trust Scott to take care of our legal needs, and we will gladly refer him to all our friends. He’s an attorney that cares about his clients. He’s not only our attorney, but he’s also our friend.”

-William and Marcia Smith

Auto Accident

I would highly recommend Scott Shachtman and the Shachtman Law Firm. My experience in having Scott represent me in a Missouri auto accident case was fabulous. He is an experienced and excellent negotiator and I received a settlement that was way beyond my expectations. Scott is professional, and yet, I felt that he cared about me and the injuries that I sustained. He kept me updated with regular conversations and shared with me his plan for my case. I couldn’t have been happier with his service. In conclusion, I would ever hesitate to call on Scott for any of my needs in the future.

Personal Injury

I have been a client of Scott Shachtman in the last two years. Scott helped me with a personal injury legal action. I could not have been more satisfied with his personal manner and his prompt replies to any questions I had. I was very impressed in the professional and cordial manner he displayed with the opposition while he was representing me. I was very satisfied with the result of the law suit. I would not hesitate to use Scott’s services again and would highly recommend him for any legal advice or legal action.
