I had hired Mr. Skibby for a violation probation and was looking at facing some time. Mr. Skibby delivered what he promised. I only received a $260 fine and my probation was reinstated. I faced NO jail time. He is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. He replies to all calls and emails and I would not hesitate to hire him again.
When I received a one year license suspension for DUI, I got a hold of Brian Skibby, I found him on the Internet. Brian got the suspension reduced from a year to a month, plus 5 months restricted to driving for work related activities. The field breathalizer test result was .09, the drawn blood result was .10 - both results were over the legal limit. Somehow Brian managed to get the charges reduced to wet and reckless. I never had to appear in any court, and he kept me informed every step along the way. The money that I saved from the lower fine and lower insurance costs, due to the reduced conviction, more than covers his legal fee. Brian did a great job for me, he has my thanks and my recommendaton.
From start to finish Brian was so supportive and did Everything he possible could for me. He kept me up to date on everything that was happening and kept in contact with me even if we weren't hearing anything. Without Brian I don't know where I would be right now, he helped me get a second chance at life and for that I am forever grateful. He truly cares for his clients and is there for you till the end.
He is a fantastic attorney. He represented us and got our case dismissed. He helped us through a really tough time. If you are looking for a terrific attorney, he's the one!!
I grew up a fairly rebellious Outlaw in OC, and not a very good one judging by my arrest records and prison terms, including a prior strike. I have seen and spent thousands of dollars on an assortment of Lawyers over the past 27 years. Mostly ,but not all, con-men themselves. Skibby is the "real deal" . He's the kind of man we should all strive to be. Such an honest man he makes you want to puke. The guy is incredibly intelligent and looks right through all the B.S. If your looking for an Attorney you lie to, Brians not for you. Easily worth 5 times what I paid him!
Upon first speaking with Mr.Skibby he made a very stressful and embarrassing situation calming and set me at ease. Not only was he polite and respectful, he worked out a very reasonable payment plan with me. Mr.Skibby is a wonderful lawyer and I would recommend him to the highest extent to anyone of my family or friends, should they ever need it.
After suffering from a very excruciating back injury, I subsequently missed a handful of court appointments deriving from my immobility. In spite of being a general ass pain to get in contact with, the good counselor stayed atop my case and skillfully negotiated a beneficial plea in my favor. Considering the aggregate failure to appears and possible outcome otherwise, I feel much blessed making out of it as I have. Very good legal counsel.
I had two felony cases I wanted to have expunged. I spoke to several lawyers that said it could'nt be done. Brian actually listened to what I had to say. We new it was'nt going to be easy but went for it any way. He came up with a game plan. We went to court twice and had them both expunged. I could'nt be happier. I would use him again for sure.
If it wern't for Mr. Skibby we would beat our case. He doesn't do homework before going to court. Flies by the seat of his pants, acts all high & mighty like he can do miricales. Then doesn't ask the questions in court to help his client. If you hire this lawyer you might as well save your money to put on your books as you will do time. He also doesn't return calls in a timely manner. He will leave you high & dry. This lawyer is in it for the money not to help his clients.
Brian, did a exceptional job on a Felony DUI case. He was able to mitigate the terms to 3 years Probation, Compact Interstate aggreement. He was outstanding getting to this result. He kept the issues simple and to the point.
I would and will use his services again. 5 months to go on Probation. I highly recommend him, very cool and collected attorney. I think he'd do a super job in working a Felony expungement.
