I hired him prior to getting married to represent me and draft my pre-nuptial agreement. After poor response time, it was finally finished...or so we thought. Well, 2 years later my marriage came to an end and when I went to my divorce attorney, she flipped to the signature page and asked if the copy I gave her was the original. When I indicated that it was, her face dropped and told me that it was not valid...as it had never been notarized. She could not get over that there wasn't even a place on the document for a notary public to sign. She said over and over how this was the most basic lawyer 101 fact, that all documents need to be notarized to be considered valid and she could not believe that he did not get it done. Needless to say, I am appalled at his lack of professionalism...and it cost me a lot of money.

howard sklar represented me in a post matrimonial matter. at the heart of the case, was the life of a non-verbal autistic boy. I was looking to block my opposition from placing the boy in a residential school, (and eventually seeking custody). opposition counsel had a pension and history of underhanded manoeuvres and smear tactics, so what did howard do? he informs opposing counsel of his impending travel plans, (just prior to the hearing over my son), and opposing counsel files a bunch of bogus temp restraining orders, and my son gets sandbagged. it was a horror show, he didnt even lift a finger to call the court and have it postponed. he refused to give me my case papers, and it turns out after he was no longer representing me, was still communicating w/ the opposing counsel!! why? so that we'd have to pay him more money to fight all the motions that he tipped them off to file.
