5.0/5.0 Posted by a Principal on 05/22/14
Endorsed for Ethical Standing
My knowledge of Scott Makuakane's legal ability is limited to his general reputation in the community. I have experienced first-hand that his ethical standards are strong, but my knowledge of the inner workings of his law practice is quite limited. To the best of my knowledge, it is excellent.
