  1. Gerald Skey was not a good attorney for in my case. He intentionally dragged things out in order to charge me more legal fees.

    • I do not recommend Wilfred Skey.
    • I hired Wilfred 1-3 years ago.
    • Wilfred handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Skey was not a good attorney and kept the case going on so he could charge me more and more legal fees. He could have negotiated a reasonable settlement earlier on in the case but dragged it out instead. He is not a good negotiator and is unethical in some ways.

      Lawyer Comment:

      While I do not know the identity of the client who submitted this review, the complaint is so general as to preclude a response. Suffice it to say that any responsible or reasonable settlement in any case is the best result for all clients regardless if what this complaining individual says. It is contrary to the policy of this firm and my approach to the practice of law for approximately 40 years, to increase fees or drag out cases to generate fees.
      If the author of this complaint implies that I have acted unethically, he or she has ready access to the Board of Ethics and I have not received notice of any such claim or assertion.
      Anonymity is a powerful tool as it becomes impossible to formulate a response. Clients generally face extremely difficult choices in the matrimonial area and they receive advice from every corner. In this case, and without attribution, I cannot guess as to who wrote the piece or, specifically, why. Frankly, publishing anonymous claims that have no basis in fact and prevents any meaningful response serves no purpose.

    • I recommend Wilfred Skey.

    I can wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend Gerald Skey as an attorney. He is a lawyer of the highest caliber and integrity with extensive experience and knowledge in his field. What sets Mr. Skey apart from other lawyers, is his sincere desire to resolve conflict and issues in the most efficient way and to provide the most desirable outcome for clients and their families. For me, his understanding of human nature and the emotional difficulties associated with divorce helped make the process much less overwhelming.

    • I recommend Wilfred Skey.
    • I hired Wilfred 1-3 years ago.
    • Wilfred handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    From the first appointment I knew that this was the lawyer for me. He is very knowledgeable and makes a confusing process simple. I asked thousands of questions and probably sent just as many emails. All of my questions were answered quickly and in depth. He is also very personable and treats you like a person and really cares about your future. He kept me from giving up on the process and giving into a less than fair agreement. I did not feel stressed because I knew I had an entire team behind me. He reminded me that my future and my child's are more then worth fighting for. Also his fees were very fair, I never felt like I was being overcharged. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a lawyer who will treat them with compassion and who is willing to go the extra mile for you.

    • I recommend Wilfred Skey.
    • I hired Wilfred 1-3 years ago.
    • Wilfred handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I am extremely pleased with the experience I had working with Mr. Skey and the support staff at his Firm. The individuals that I dealt with were always professional, courteous and respectful, as was Mr. Skey. I have dealt with many attorneys over the years and only a few of them have left me with the positive impression and high level of respect that I now have for Mr. Skey.

    Mr. Skey worked closely with me on a regular basis dialoging on all aspects of the case and encouraging my input. He always provided thorough, understandable explanations to my questions or concerns and he made it easy to discuss any issue. His approach challenged me on various aspects of the case in order to prepare me for potential outcomes, both good and bad. He focused not only on the legal basis of my case, but also the practical aspects of a resolution that he felt the courts would support. Throughout the entire process, he always provided timely responses to my calls and e-mails.

    In court, I observed first hand that Mr. Skey's wealth of knowledge and depth of experience was highly respected and inured to my overall benefit. Ultimately, his understanding of the law and his instincts were correct. I believe what he presented on my behalf was viewed as right on point and I am pleased with the overall result.

    I have already recommended Mr. Skey and will continue to do so without hesitation.

    • I recommend Wilfred Skey.
    • I hired Wilfred 1-3 years ago.
    • Wilfred handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Skey was recommended to me by a mutual friend. I cannot thank my friend enough. From the moment I had my consultation with Mr. Skey, I was immediately at ease. Not only did he listen, he gave sound advice and time to my issue. Answered emails and questions quickly and I have never had to wait for my appointment time. He is professional and willing to explain all sides of the law. I have already given his name to several acquaintances and coworkers. I am so happy to be able to share this review.
