John N Skiba

About me

I devote my practice 100% to consumer issues.  Whether you are having a difficult time financially and need to file for bankruptcy relief or if you are being harassed by creditors and need an aggressive attorney to make creditors follow the law, my staff and I can help you in obtaining the relief you need.


I am a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) as well as the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI).  During law school I was an extern for the Hon. Robert C. Jones, bankruptcy judge for the District of Nevada.


Prior to law school I attended BYU where I studied sociology and psychology.  While at BYU I was fortunate to play football for the Cougars and was part of the inaugural Mountain West Conference champion team.


I offer a free consultation to discuss what options are available and to help you prepare a plan in moving forward.

  • Mark A Heath II

    John Skiba is a fantastic attorney. He's a true genius at his craft. Every referral I've ever sent him gave me nothing but positive feedback. I highly recommend John if you have any sort of debt problem. He not only handles bankruptcy cases but fights against dishonest and abusive debt collectors.
