Honesty
I called this morning to use his service. After explaining my situation, he was honest to tell me that he would not be able to render his service to me. I understand my situation is peculiar. I will keep looking. I appreciate your honesty....Aliyu.

Comprehensive and reliable!
I got to know Howard thru a friend’s referral. Howard has strong expertise and years of experience in both immigration law and family law which suits my case perfectly. He was responsive and was very thorough with my questions, key steps, strategic planning, and potential obstacles/risks, etc. Howard is sensitive, professional, confident, and extremely helpful. Also, his hourly rate is very reasonable given the services he provided. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a strong and trustworthy attorney.

An Excellent Attorney!
Howard is an excellent and incredibly effective attorney. I first met him when he was the company attorney for the IT company I was working for in the early 2000's. He help me apply for my H1B visa and even after leaving the company, I sought him out to apply for my greencard and eventually my citizenship. During that process, I was very pleased with how responsive he was to my questions, whether by email or by phone. When I had a case for another family member, I did not give a second thought as to who I was going to consult. Howard has continued to be very responsive to my questions, following up on any issues I may have. I sincerely appreciate all the help and professionalism that Howard has shown me. I would gladly recommend attorney Howard for his service with no doubt. Thanks for all the help you have given me through the years and God bless.

Review for Howard Skolnick
Mr. Skolnick assisted us with our wills and was a source of helpful information regarding the laws pertaining to our situation. We appreciated his professionalism and courtesy and would utilize his services again for other matters.

Happy Client
I'm so glad that I hired Mr. Skolnick to handle my child support modification case. I had thought about filing it myself but decided to hire him instead which turned out to be a life saver. He was very responsive answering calls and emails and was very prompt and thorough with the handling of the case. I just wish now that I had found and hired him back for my original divorce case.

Family Lawyer
Our family has used Howard for a long time. First time Howard prepared my dad's will before he passed. Then he prepared mine and my husband's will. Updated when my son became an adult. He also prepared my mom's will and helped me execute her will when she passed. He advised my son in regards to applying for a fiancée visa for his fiancée to come to the US. I recommended Howard to other friends and they appreciated his help.

I highly recommend!
Howard assisted me several different times; first with my DACA case and then with my residency, and both times he was very professional and attentive. He always kept in contact with me and answered every question I had...and I had a lot! He is always very honest, patient, and kind. This is why I highly recommend Howard to anyone. I feel extremely lucky to have found such an excellent lawyer that I could trust and count on throughout the whole process.

A Five Star Attorney
I was a self-employed in the construction business, a hard business with lots of attorneys. One of the few that always stood out was Sir Howard Skolnick. He never disappointed me, very punctual, a man of his word. He did a lot of my lawyer business, because of all the attorneys I knew, he was at the top of his game.
