Excellent Attorney
I highly recommend Attorney Skinner. He worked with me on my case to stop foreclosure and he did a wonderful job. He knows the law and is very compassionate towards his clients. He is responsive to any questions and available. He works tirelessly for his clients and he is super fast at responding and getting work done. I have worked with other attorneys prior to him and I quickly learned that unlike other attorney that overcharges for simple tasks. He gets the job done fast and efficiently! For example I needed a title exam on my property and another attorney took over weeks to get the information and it was incomplete. Attorney Skinner and his team turned that information around in a day what took another law firm weeks to do it, he does in a day....He is honest and upfront. Do yourself a favor and don't hesitate to hire him. I have dealt with a lot of attorneys and they are of the old school of thought, where they don't inform you what is going on in your case, and non responsive to calls, and overcharges for any simple task and typically they forget you are the client. Attorney Skinner treats everyone with respect and he takes the time to explain your options and what is going on your casefile. You are never left in the dark. He is also does electronic filings and he immediately turns any information on your case to you immediately.

Wonderful Attorney
We hired Mr. Skinner for some issues we were having with my son's school. He was very responsive and knowledgeable. He took time to listen to our concerns, get the details correct and work on our behalf. After hiring him, we got exactly the result we had hoped for, maybe better. If you are looking for an attorney who knows what he is doing & will fight for you, I highly recommend Mr. Skinner.

Attorney Skinner Review
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.

Not only a skilled Attorney but a Friend indeed...
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.

Absolutely a great choice for legal advise!!!!!
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 !!!!!

Consumer protection lawyer,He definitely knows the laws
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.
