"Scott is extremely knowlegable and has the benefit of experience over the past 20+ years to be able to offer sound and well thought through, conservative advice. He is always available and returns calls and emails very promptly. When is not able to address an problem / question he undertakes to find out the right solution. Scott is also very empathetic, and cares about clients and their lives as well as situations. Getting an annual birthday call and texts makes the relationship stronger as well."

"Scott has helped enormously with navigating the way foward to mynext chapter. His mantra of of sticking to the facts and figures and not getting caught up in the emotion reactions along with his legal knowledge and experience in reaching the end goal works. I would have no hesitation in recommending Scott's services to anyone who is looking for realistic advice through their separation or divorce process."

"As long term clients of Scott Haywood and the HFM team we have been grateful for the group insurance they put in place nearly 10 years ago. Recently we had our first death claim which has been horrific for us. However HFM were able to take the stress off us and get the funds to those who needed it most. We are fortunate for the work they have done and do."

"I've been using Scott for over 6 years now and together we've gone through the highs and lows of what life throws at you. Whether I'm overseas and emailing or home and catching up face to face with Scott and his team, I always finish up feeling confident and informed about the decisions made. My life has lots of moving parts and constantly changing yet no matter what I throw at him he provides numerous options or the right solution or often is step ahead of me. The best part is that I know he's a call away to ease my mind."
