Mr. Skier is definitely one of the best lawyers to call if you want great representation. We hired him twice and we were very happy with the outcome of my son's last hearing. He won the case for us. He is a very dedicated lawyer and will definitely give you the best representation possible. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a good lawyer. Alise Stachera

Attorney Skier and his colleague Melissa Campbell have handled several divorce matters for me. They have been accessible, fair, compassionate, bold, and honest. I will continue to retain them for legal representation and appreciate that they are always ready to fight for me. Jaclyn
