  • Douglas Patrick Flaherty

    Mr. Skola is a skilled and knowledgeable litigator, but also handled a vigorous dispute with professionalism and class that many lawyers unfortunately lack. I respect the excellent job he did for his client.

  • Michael Charles Doland

    Mr. Skola and I are in similar fields and so I am in a good position to evaluate his Avvo postings. There are consistently accurate, analytic and customized to the needs of the Avvo askers. These are the exact qualities that any prospective client would want when looking for an attorney. It is now 2016 and I feel compelled to update my endorsement. The answer of Mr. Skola I just reviewed stands out as one of the most comprehensive and customized answers I have ever seen on Avvo.
