“Scott was amazing on our daughters case. With everything she went though he would keep us posted and he worked hard to get her what she deserved. He was easy to talk with and understand through out the entire process we appreciate him and his team they are the best!!” -L.C.W.


“My experience working with Scott Shawver was incredible.  I was in an auto accident caused by another person that injured my back. He helped me navigate the healing and settlement process and worked with the other person’s insurance company as well as my own. Unfortunately, my own personal PIP insurance company was very slow to pay and required my medical providers to jump many hoops before they would pay them to their services.  Due to their lagging, it caused great stress. Scott was knowledgeable, confident and kind during this whole process and helped me to get a settlement from the other person’s insurance as well as advocated for me with my own insurance and held them accountable for their negligence. I would 100% recommend him to my family, friends, and colleagues and give him a 5 out of 5 star review.  I am so grateful to have found his services.” – T.K.


“The team at GLP were great. I felt they supported me and advocated for my case very well. The team gave a difficult situation some resolution.” -J.G.


“This is the second time in 10 years that I’ve used Scott Shawver at GLP Attorneys. Both times the service was outstanding! Scott really took the time to listen to me and gather all the necessary information to fight the insurance companies. I highly recommend using this law firm!” -T.M.


“I worked closely with Scot Shawver and his team (Briana and Vanessa) and when I say team I mean they work as a team. Tenacious, professional, real human beings interested very much in the progress and status of my MVA case. They got results that exceeded my expectations and fought hard to make it all happen. I would emphatically recommend them to anyone needing a personal injury attorney. Great job guys, thank you.”


“I highly recommend!!! Very professional, thorough, courteous, knowledgeable, and yeah….get them for your team! A special shout out of appreciation for Scott, and Venessa.” -Anonymous
