Great Attorney
Mr. Skillman has been representing me for a few months now on a couple of legal issues. His knowledge and legal skills are outstanding as is his presence in the court room. The first court hearing was a win and the second case is still underway. However, I feel confident in the courtroom being represented by Mr. Skillman and would recommend him time and time again.

Professional & Personable
My experience with Mr. Skillman and his staff was excellent. Right from the first phone call everyone in the office was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Mr. Skillman easily accommodated the fact I was 400 miles away in another state. Additionally, was respectful of my time as a school teacher and worked around my schedule. I feel I was very fairly represented by Mr. Skillman in my Custody Modification case. He was honest, upfront, and respectful. I would gladly recommend him to anyone in need.

Restoration of Rights
First and for most, I would like to thank Mr. Skillman for all that he has done for me and my case. Mr. Skillman went above and beyond even after our case was put aside because of state law issues, when the bordering state where I had my issues changed their laws, he contacted me and helped me finish my rights restoration we started the year before. I truly appreciate his caring and help. I would definitely use him again and highly recommend his services.
