A Hardworking and Trustworthy Attorney
I have had the pleasure of working at a law firm that has referred clients to Attorney Skipper. Ms. Skipper and her staff are professional and do a great job for their clients, and it is a pleasure to associate with them. She has an excellent reputation in the community for being an outstanding lawyer on behalf of her clients, which I have seen first hand. Highly recommended!

Trustworthy and Honest Attorney
We consulted with Ms. Skipper regarding an issue with my mother's estate. Although she was unable to assist us, she immediately responded with excellent advice, suggestions, and tips to help us with our issues and save money in the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for legal advice and assistance. We will definitely consult her again in the future for our wills and estate planning. She has absolutely earned our business!!

GREAT ADVISE!
I didn't hire her, but asked a few questions. She was very helpful and answered all of my questions for now. When I'm ready to hire an attorney, I will use her.

I endorse Sally Skipper
I have known Sally for several years. I consulted with her some years ago on a probate matter. Sally was informative, honest, and compassionate. Her guidance helped me to make the right decision. Further, as a Private Investigator and Process Server in Florida / Pasco county, often I have, without hesitation or reserve, recommended Sally to my clients. I highly recommend her and can say with certainty, Sally exemplifies the highest level of integrity.

Personal Recommendation
This firm has handled my parents and my families estates and trusts for thirty five years. They've always gone above and beyond with their personal service and professionalism. I wouldn't consider ever changing firms. They keep us updated on the latest reforms and call when necessary to make changes to our accounts. The staff are all friendly and professional.

Fantastic Attorney and Firm
My "mother" (a dear friend) used Ms. Skipper's firm to handle some of her estate issues and she was more than pleased. Ms. Skipper's firm is the ONLY firm I would trust with such a delicate issue and happily refer many people to them. I have also worked with others in her firm that are just as wonderful.

Professional - Compassionate - Honest
I hired Attorney Sallie Skipper to handle my daughter's probate. It was the most difficult time in my husband and my entire life. Attorney Skipper was so helpful and compassionate with us, and so helpful in getting us get through the probate. Attorney Sallie Skipper not only handled it in a timely manner, the office and staff were very efficient with working with us. This firm has the reputation as being honest , fair, and easy to work with, they are always there for you, when ever I would call the office I got immediate answers.
