    Attorney Skiba and his staff are great people to work with! The process was explained so I could understand what would be going on and kept in touch as to what was going on with the case. I would highly recommend Attorney Skiba for any consumer needs! I would definitely go back in the event I needed to! Thanks so much for all of your help!

    I feel Attorney John Skiba does knows a lot about the Bankruptcy/ debt collection laws however I did not have a good experience with him as an attorney. I understand you cannot control what a judge decides to do but I went with his recommendation by not showing up at a hearing when I told him I was willing and lost the case. One of the reasons cited by the judge was because I was not present and it showed the court that I did not care. After, all I got from Mr. Skiba was the decision could be appealed but it was not in the scope of our agreement and would be expensive. I never received any additional information from him on what I needed to do. However, I did receive a letter from him that told me what he could do for me at an additional cost. I had difficulty reaching him to find out if I needed to contact the company or wait for a demand from them. I scheduled a telephonic appointment so I could ask him and he missed it. I received an email stating he would call me in the morning but never receive a call. I had to email him days later to ask when I would get a call back from him. I never received a response or call from him. I did receive a letter from him stating my case was closed out and ended it by asking for referrals. I would not recommend Attorney John Skiba to my family or friends. He seems like a nice guy but good luck if you choose to go with him.

    John N Skiba’s response: “Scott: I can appreciate your frustration with the final ruling in your case. I have handled literally thousands of consumers cases and as much as I do my best to get the best outcome possible at the end of the day the final decision is left to a judge or jury. When a judge or jury makes a decision that we don't agree with then our remedy is to appeal it to a higher court. Unfortunately the appeal process is lengthy and requires a substantial amount of work. Because of that it is necessary for me to charge additional legal fees above and beyond what it costs to handle a typical case through trial. I wish we would have been able to get a better final result in your case but the facts of the matter dictated otherwise.”

    My experience with Skiba Law was very disappointing. I went to John because I was having problems with fraudulent debt collectors, and I was initially impressed. After our consultation, things took a turn for the worse. John stated that I would receive the representation agreement via email shortly, and he would begin work on my case that week. I didn't receive the agreement until I placed a few calls to his office days later and left messages with his receptionist. These messages went unanswered until I pressed the receptionist for an answer around one week after my first call inquiring about the status of the agreement. These communication issues continued throughout our relationship. I can honestly say that I do not believe John responded to any of my emails or phone calls the first time. John also gave me two different estimated completion dates for the drafting of my complaint both of which he subsequently missed. On the second occasion he said that the complaint should be finished that day for my review...it wasn't. Durning our consultation, I expressed my desire to file my complaint relatively quickly. John acknowledged this, but failed to deliver. Lastly, John also failed to respond to multiple questions that I posed. In his defense, John did withdraw as my attorney when it became clear that his procrastination had destroyed my trust in him and his firm and he apologized for the communication issues. I would not recommend Skiba law to anyone.

In general the initiation of legal proceedings have to be thoroughly researched and can take substantial time, sometimes longer than expected. Please feel free to contact me directly.”

    I received a call from a Collection Agency from an apartment that I lived in 5 years ago. I did not want to settle with the collection agency on a debt that I didn't feel occurred. Though, I could have settled for possible less than attorney fees, I hired John off the principle of the situation. Not only did John win the Judgment, but also had their Attorney pay for my costs. I would recommend the professionalism of Skiba Law group to everyone!

    I met with attorney John Skiba about 8 months ago in regards to a debt collection company suing my wife.Within the first 5 minutes of my consultation with Mr. Skiba i knew he was the attorney for us. I was so impressed right off the bat with his professionalism and can do attitude. Mr. Skiba laid out all of the available options that my wife and I had and wanted to make sure that I was completely comfortable with all of the possible outcomes. Mr. Skiba was very clear in regards to our case. He stated from the beginning that we had a very good chance at beating this case due to the lack of evidence. I cannot thank him enough for all of his help and will continue to refer him to any friends, or family members that I possibly can when they are in need of a trusted attorney. Mr. Skiba offers a free consultation and I would highly recommend it to anyone facing difficult financial times to call him and schedule an appointment. Mr. Skiba will definitely guide you in the right direction and his fees are extremely reasonable. He made this difficult time very painless and i thank him for that. In the end my wife and i won our case thanks to Mr. Skiba. So if your looking for an attorney that will fight for your rights and who is up front and honest and delivers John Skiba is the one.

    I met with attorney John Skiba about a year ago for a bankruptcy consultation when I was living in AZ and was impressed right off the bat with his professionalism and compassion for the difficult financial situation that I was going through. He was available to meet with me right away. At the meeting, he clearly laid out all of the available options that I had and wanted to make sure that I was completely comfortable with what all of the possible outcomes could be. After working with John for almost a year on what I consider to be a pretty complicated bankruptcy, the outcome ended up being the best possible case scenario and was exactly what John had predicted. It was the best possible outcome for my family and for myself. Also, he was there every step of the way to answer any questions or concerns that I had. I cannot thank him enough for all of his help and will continue to refer him to any clients, friends, or family members that I possibly can when they are in need of a trusted bankruptcy adviser. I met John originally at a presentation that he was giving to a real estate company. I had even referred him to a family member prior to using him myself, and they were also very impressed and happy with his services. He offers a free consultation and I would highly recommend to anyone facing difficult financial times to call him and schedule an appointment. He will definitely guide you in the right direction and his fees are extremely reasonable compared to all of his competition. I would not go to anyone else for a bankruptcy or consultation.

    I have to totally disagree with the Aug 25 review. My wife and I have been very pleased with not only John Skiba but his support team, Brittany and Ashley as well. All of our questions were answered promptly and thoroughly.
    They were very professional and were very understanding of the emotional side of bankruptcy. I would recommend John Skiba and the Jackson White team to anyone. Thanks for all your help John

    I have only good things to say about this law firm, in particular John Skiba. John has let me call him after hours many times on his own personal time. John and everyone else at Jackson White are ALWAYS available to me.

    John helped us with our chapter 7 filing. John is an excellent communicator. John is able to explain complex court procedures; we had no idea what to expect. John made it easy for us to prepare for the filing. On the day we went to court, my wife and I were confident in the proceedings. Of course John was there in case anything did arise. John was punctual with meetings, patient with obtalces, confident our case would have a positive result, John was right! John's hard work and attention to detail enabled our family to start over again. I would use John again for any legal issue. I appreciate all the hard work he and his staff did for us!

    John and his staff have done a remarkable job of representing us as we are making our way down this difficult road. He is reassuring and knowledgeable. Both my wife and I would recommend him for this type of representation.
