I hired Ms. Skinner 6 months ago and was very impressed with both her professionalism and ability to understand her client's needs. I had a unique child custody situation and Ms. Skinner walked me through the whole process and helped me keep my kids. I always knew the status of my case and she was always available to answer any questions I may have had. She fought for my rights and cares about her clients. Its hard to find attorneys out there who still love what they do, and I can tell you Ms. Skinner still has her passion.

I hired ms skinner about a year ago to help me with my divorce and to help me get custody of my two children. She worked with me on payments as I was not able to pay the full amount up front. She did great with my case. I was always able to get ahold of her and I could tell she really cared about me and my children. I'm so happy I hired ms skinner and I am so thankful to have my children.

I used her in a divorce and she came to my hearing unprepared, did not have my file or any documents on me or my case and did not even remember who I was. She was LATE, she did not do a good job. She looked very unprofessional as well as acted extremely unprofessional. Because of her poor work product and poor legal knowledge I lost my case and I am receiving less child support than before. I would not recommend this atty to anyone if you are trying to WIN your case.

We hired Ms. Skinner to represent us in a custody issue that was complex and involved several concerning issues. We have found both she and her office staff to be very attentive and responsive to our needs and concerns. She and her staff have worked diligently to help us in this case, even traveling to another county to deal with and protect our rights with issue that arose suddenly with the opposing side. While our case is still ongoing, we can without hesitation say we are very pleased with her attention to our case and that she has taken the extra time to review court records from another state as well as evidence in prearation for the final hearing. She is a decisive attorney who is quiick to address and respond to imediate needs ad plan a course of action for the long term goal as well!! We highly recomend her, especially where matters of child safety are of concern. She is an advocate for the little one who needs a voice for them.

this was the worst possible lawyer i could have hired. she showed up at court and didnt even know she was representing me. she did not do anything to prepare for the case, and did not help me in the slightest. i would have been better off representing myself.

I needed help with my divorce case because my previous attorney was horrible. Margrett Skinner SAVED ME! She worked with my case diligenlty and she fixed EVERYTHING. She had a great personality. She is a no nonsense type of lawyer and was straight to the point, telling me exactly what i needed to do, when i needed to do it, and how it needed to be done. She worked closely with me making sure everything was done correctly and in a way that I was satisfied with. She not only cared about what was best for me, but what was best for my children as well. She cared about the outcome of the case and how it would affect my kids. I thought she was a great attorney and would highly recommend her.

Used this lawyer for a custody hearing. She forgot our first court date. Only happen to be in the court house because she had another case. Brought nothing with her about my case. She called my ex's attorney a slut in the Court Hall Way in frount of my children. She told the entire court house what my children had said in privite chambers. She scared my children. She forgot to pick up my ex's response to our filling. And worst of all She was told my ex was an extreme flight risk. But did noting. My two daughters have not been taken to Kwait City by my ex and I may never see them again.
