"I have know Robert Skipworth for a substantial lenght of time. I have been involved in a few legal actions in which he was also involved. He presently represents the homeowners association in the private community that I reside in, in several lawsuits and as a result I have had an opportunity to observe his work from both a professional point of few and as a knowledgable client. His work is excellent. He is always well prepared and has a well defined and well respected court room presence."
