Trusted Attorney
Attorney Skier and his colleague Melissa Campbell have handled several divorce matters for me. They have been accessible, fair, compassionate, bold, and honest. I will continue to retain them for legal representation and appreciate that they are always ready to fight for me.

Pardon
I hired Mr. Skier to handle my pardon case. I could not be more pleased with his compassion and his genuine caring attitude. The level of preparation he showed up with was second to none. He also did a great job preparing me for what was going to happen and how to handle myself. After Mr. Skier spoke briefly to the board they granted me a full pardon. If you need an attorney. I highly recommend Andrew Skier. He is an expert in his field and he is well worth it and genuinely a good and caring person.

Highly Recommend
My family hired Mr. Skier to represent my son in his Pardon case. He told us up front what to expect. He let us know it would be a lengthy process and always gave us realistic expectations. He and his legal assistant Tracy always had time to answer any questions that we had any time that we called their office. I highly recommend Mr. Skier as your attorney. He is not only knowledgeable in his field, he is also kind and genuine.

Pardon
I did quite a bit of research to find out which attorney I should hire to file for a pardon. Mr. Skier was upfront with me that it can be a long process. He filed the necessary paperwork and then stayed in touch with me providing a status as he had one. He called as soon as he found out my case was scheduled to be heard by the Pardon board and arranged for us to meet with him the day before the hearing. At the meeting he explained to us exactly what was going to happen at the hearing and answered all of our questions. The hearing went exactly as he described it and he successfully obtained the pardon for me. I absolutely highly recommend Andrew Skier to anyone seeking to obtain a pardon.

Pardon attorney extraordinaire
I did quiet a lot of research before hiring Mr. Skier for a pardon case but all of my inquires pointed to Andrew. It was a very long process but I can assure anyone looking for a winning attorney with a great personality and true understanding of the process you can't go wrong with Mr. Skier. Not only did he not sugar coat anything he was a straight shooter of what to expect and in the end not only was I pardoned but my family was relieved from my burden as well and or lives have been forever changed. I am working on securing him to represent my brother and would highly recommend him for you needs.

BRILLIANT ATTORNEY
Retained him for a DUI Defense case, as I wasn't charged until 3 most later. My 3 yes old was in the car and he plead it down to a fine and reckless driving. (NO, I was not DUI, was reaching for his bottle!) Andrew has a very commanding presence about himself in a courtroom as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Great Experience! Would highly recommend.
I wanted to take a moment and leave some feedback about my experience with Andrew Skier. I engaged Mr. Skier several years ago to represent me in what turned out to be a lengthy matter. Several years later when the state finally got around to me, Mr. Skier was there to represent me, just as we agreed several years prior. He even took additional time to meet with me the day before my hearing and made me feel quite comfortable and informed throughout the process. I would highly recommend him and his practice!

Excellent Service, Caring Attitude
Mr. Skier handled my request for a pardon. He was compassionate throughout the process. He took the time to learn about me and my circumstances, and compile a persuasive argument for the Board. After hearing his speech, they granted an immediate pardon, without me or my character witness even speaking. Thank you, Mr. Skier, for changing the course of my future. An Actual Client - D

Andrew Skier
Mr. Skier is a known attorney in Montgomery. I hired him twice for my son. My son would probably be sitting in prison for the rest of his life if it wasn't for Mr. Skier. He works with the family with respect and gives everything he has when he represents his clients. I would definitely recommend Mr. Skier to anyone who is looking for the best lawyer around. It's because of his experience and the work he does that makes him one of the best lawyers I know.

Criminal Defense
I have hired Mr. Skier on two occasions. Both times, we won our case. He is open, honest, and flexible. We knew exactly what to expect because he completely prepared us for every step of the process. His clients are his priority and he even met us on a Sunday to meet OUR schedule. In his office, it is like talking to a friend but in the court room he is all business and determined.

Patient, kind, and most importantly, helpful
I emailed an inquiry to Mr. Skier on a Sunday morning. Having worked in the legal field as a paralegal, I was expecting the standard call from a legal assistant to set up an appointment. I was wrong. I received a call from Mr. Skier himself that same Sunday afternoon. We talked and set up a meeting. I was hesitant going into the meeting because I had literally been tricked out of money for a service by a very well-known attorney in the area. Mr. Skier and I talked about my case. While he didn't make me any promises, I left confident that even if he wasn't successful, he do everything possible to help me. He was very patient with me as sometimes I did not meet the deadlines due to scheduling issues. Fortunately, he was able to help me resolve my issue. This has been a slow procedure, but it has been worth it. I'd recommend Mr. Skier to anyone. He's a class act.

Well-Respected, Caring, and Determined Attorney
Mr. Skier is a well-respected, caring, and determined attorney. Mr. Skier was very thorough in getting all the information needed to present my case which, in turn, got an outcome that was beyond my expectations. He stood by my side the entire time and I don’t know if I could have handled the entire process without him and his encouraging words. He went above and beyond to get me what my child and I deserved.

VERY BAD EXPERIENCE
I absolutely WOULD NOT recommend Andrew Skier for any legal work. The longest conversation he had with me was to get his fee. After that not only did not I not hear from him, HE MISSED A COURT APPOINTMENT AND I HAD A WARRENT ISSUED. He did nothing for my case other than a court program which I could have clearly done myself. On the date of my rescheduled court hearing he had another attorney show up who knew nothing about my case and stayed on his phone the entire time. My court date was 3 weeks ago and Andrew still has not called or followed up with me on the outcome. SAVE YOUR MONEY. THIS GUY DOES NOT WORK FOR HIS FEE.
