Ms. Skipper handled my child support case with professionalism, respect and honesty. She was realistic about my situation and upfront with her opinion of the outcome. In the end, I was very pleased with her responsiveness and the dedication she put forth to my case.

Lani Skipper review
We hired Mrs Skipper in 2001 to be our County Attorney. After working with her for 8 years, I came to feel that she was the most competent attorney I had ever met. I have engaged her on several personal matters and still feel the same about her.

Beyond Reproach!
I've had the honor of getting to know Ms. Skipper through her representation of the Paulding County Government. As a citizen who attends every BOC Meeting, where she sits with the Board, I could not be more satisfied or impressed with Ms. Skipper's professionalism and knowledge of the law. Her role as County Attorney gives me peace of mind knowing the law will be followed - something Paulding County no longer takes for granted. In addition, she is always respectful and attentive when interacting with individual citizens. Paulding County could not want for a better attorney than Noelani Skipper!

Excellent legal counsel
Skipper law took the time to thoroughly answer my legal questions. Ms. Skipper was very prompt and very effective and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend her to anybody needing legal assistance. Her patience with seemingly endless questions was commendable. I felt completely represented.
