Scott began his career serving as a prosecutor in the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office for the City of Chesapeake. His passion for helping people and families then led him to open his own law practice, where he spent time building relationships with the state prosecutors, judges and clerks. Through these relationships, his trial experience and his forthright integrity, Scott has established himself as one of the most respected attorneys in the Richmond area.

Criminal, traffic and family law matters are difficult and stressful for both the person charged and their family. Scott represents a wide variety of clients, including those in automobile accidents, as well as those charged with traffic violations-including DUI, misdemeanors and felonies.

Scott also represents children as a guardian ad litem. He is regularly appointed by the courts to represent children in cases where the state is removing the children from their homes and also in custody and visitation cases and divorces that involve custody disputes.

Scott’s knowledge and skills in a wide variety of complex legal matters serves to alleviate the anxiety associated with these proceedings – allowing him to successfully litigate family law matters with the desired result for the vast majority of his clients.

Scott is especially proud of his record in personal injury matters, such as automobile accidents and slip-and-fall cases where he has negotiated and litigated cases against major insurance and other companies. He understands the pain, trauma, and mental fatigue of personal injury issues and works closely with his clients to ensure they are well-prepared and ready to fight for their right to be made whole again.

When you need help from an aggressive and experienced trial attorney, Scott will treat you with the respect and dignity you deserve, listen to your concerns, tell you the truth and always work in your best interests.

Partner Spotlight Video Release Notes from Scott Cardani – January 2022

Hello, I’m Scott. I am one of the partners here at Critzer | Cardani – alongside of Jackie Critzer.

I started my career in 1990 as a public school teacher. In 1996, I graduated from law school with the idea that I could help these families more. I started working with juveniles in serious criminal and traffic matters, and families are experiencing custody visitation support. I operated as a guardian ad litem and still do.

Today I continue to focus on the needs of the family, handling custody, visitation support matters, and divorce, I have a special place in my heart for juveniles who find themselves in trouble and need a way out.

Here at Critzer Cardani PC, we do business litigation and other litigation issues that the family tends to run into. If you need help, and you want to get from where you are to where you need to be, give me a call. We’ll make a plan to get you from here to there – so you can have the life that you want.
