Micheal Skinner is an excellent lawyer. If you live in Chester County, Pa and are in need of criminal defense call Mike. Mike Skinner's legal service helped me through one of the hardest times in my life. It is because of him I can pursue my career goals without an legal obstacles. Men like Mike re-establish my faith in justice and in the American criminal justice system.
Mr. Skinner was very reasonable and helpful with a traffic violation involving a school bus. He provided me a reasonable estimation of the out come of the penalty. I was extremely thankful in his council for getting the charges reduced. Very satisfied client.
I hired Attorney Skinner after I lost a case, needless to say I lost hope not only in the court system but was not looking forward to dealing with another lawyer after speaking with several that were condescending . Attorney Skinner gave me all hope back, not only in his ability to take on my worrying, but his calm demeanor and down to earth personality. Attorney Skinner prepared, this was evident by his paperwork he brought to court the day of my hearing. It was clear to me behind closed doors he was active in pursuing the law, not the nonsense. I highly suggest you call his office and speak with him so you can see for yourself he is a person of high quality services.
Mike took over a case involving our daughter that, under the control of another attorney, had completely spiralled out of control and was going nowhere fast. We couldn't have made a better choice by hiring Mike! He knew exactly what to do, the quickest way to get it done, and handled the case with the utmost professionalism. He even went above and beyond by checking in with my daughter while my husband and I were on vacation, which gave us peace of mind while were were away. It also showed us just how much he cared. We also quickly realized that he was highly respected in the county, which truly impressed us. I would absolutely recommend him with the utmost confidence!
Michael was incredible, offering nearly an hour of free consultation on my case on what I could expect from a process perspective and alleviating fears that I had. Michael's background working in the DA department gives him a unique knowledge of the police officers and DA and the ability to accurately predict the range of outcomes. In my case the charges were reduced to no-point citations prior to having to go to trial. Hopefully I will never have to use a defence attorney again, but if I do, I know where to go! Thanks Michael!
Mr. Skinner went above and beyond what was expected of him. He is very informative and knowledgeable. I had no trouble contacting him to answer questions or give me advice. Mike used his network of experience to get me ARD. I am very thankful and would hire Mr. Skinner again without question!
We have been involved in a legal situation with our son for the last 4 1/2 years. We were so frustrated with our legal representation. We spent so much time and money and really felt like we got absolutely nothing in return. Mike was the third lawyer we hired and boy, what a difference. FINALLY, someone who listened to our story...asked questions, heard our concerns, answered our questions and gave us some hope.
No one wants to be in the position of needing a lawyer. You get into a situation and you're scared and heart sick. I wish we had met Mike sooner, I think our understanding of the process would be so different. I wholeheartedly recommend Mike to anyone needing representation.
