Client Comments

"I have worked with Nick Scavone for over a decade. He is an excellent attorney, who always has his client's best interest in mind."

-Rob Marr
Vice President
Comerica Bank

"Bodman is a great real estate firm and Nick Scavone is absolutely the best real estate lawyer around, hands down, from his knowledge to his determination to do the absolute best for his clients. He is very through in his work and detailed to protect the client's best interests, but not to the point where he is a deal breaker, he is a deal maker! He is crisp, clear, and concise and can communicate with anyone at any level. He is a humbled attorney who is one of the most ethical people that I know. He is a person of great trust and is a true relationship builder. His billing is always more than fair and he is a person of great ethics, even when he knows that his advice will cost him legal billing. But he only looks for the client's best interests, and many times will place himself in the place of his clients and make decisions from there."
