I've hired Attorney Skinner to consult on various credit, collections, and real estate foreclosure defense and alternative options. He is competent and makes sure you understand all your options. I would highly recommend John Skinner for any of these legal concerns.
I would highly recommend Attorney Skinner, he is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. He was very responsive to all of my questions.
I found myself being sued by a major debt collector and the credit card debt had reached statue of limitations.
I found Attorney Skinner on this great site and hired Attorney Skinner's firm to do a piecemeal representation for me. He always seemed happy to help in any way he could. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and would not hesitate to use his services again.
Mr. Skinner handled my case quickly while keeping in contact with me. He is a lawyer you can trust. I feel that anyone that chooses to go to Mr. Skinner for representation will be 100% completely satisfied.
Attorney Jake Skinner has become a part of our family.
We met with Attorney Skinner in April of 2011 to help us fight a home foreclosure by bringing suit against a major lender. From the moment we began talking in the office we realized just how knowledgeable and capable he was in addition to being tenacious which fit our needs perfectly. Jake immediately went to work on a strategy to engage the lender and explore options that were acceptable to both sides in resolving the conflict. At one point during a hearing Attorney Skinner actually persuaded the judge privately that the lender needed to be held accountable and therefore should find a way to resolve the issue and would not allow the foreclosure instead ordering mediation.
As a result of Attorney Skinner's efforts and expertise our family has been able to move forward with a shortsale while allowing our family to remain in the home throughout the process. Jake was able to do what 3 other attorneys that we retained were unable to do and is just blessed with people skills and the ability to reason with opposing counsel and to find common ground for both sides.
It is now 2013 and Attorney Skinner has allowed us the opportunity to put this situation behind us without prejudice or penalty and without having to file suit. With the utmost respect for his contributions we highly recommend Attorney Skinner for any and all consumer protection issues that may arise without any hesitation. For any and all legal issues that may arise our 1st call will always be to Attorney Jake Skinner our personal attorney and counselor.
I went to Atty Skinner on advise from my credit councilor. He was knowledgable about all my concerns. When a credit company was doing something illeagal he advised them of my rights and went to court on my behalf . Could not be any happier. Now I have my credit repaired and I am a homeowner. Thank You Very Much Jake !!!!!
After 3 years of a bad lawyer who made things worst on us,I found John on the web and e-mailed him for help. He got right back to us and though we were skeptical of him, a little scared to start over with a new lawyer,we had no choice and ended up realy liking is style.
John is very professional and he knows the law down to a T.
He broke down every cost to us and we had no hidden charges like our last lawyer did to us.
He explains every thing he does so you understand and he`s just a very professional lawyer that we are so glad we found.
We would recommend him to anyone.
