“Kirk Bottner gets nothing but praise from me! I had a felony and a misdemeanor hanging over my head for over a year. I was looking at quite a bit of time. I met with him on Monday the day before my preliminary hearing. We went to court the following day, and he got my charges dismissed. A huge burden was lifted off my back. In less than 24 hours, he worked a miracle. The prosecutor wouldn’t agree to the dismissal at first, but he persisted and didn’t give up. I have dealt with lawyers my whole life, and none of them have fought for me like Kirk did. If you want a lawyer who has your best interest in mind, I highly recommend Kirk Bottner! Thank you so much for getting me my life back!!!”

“It was an honor to work with Mr. Skillman. He thoroughly reviewed my case and put his heart into providing a full-on legal defense for my home and family. He is more than just a competent lawyer; he is a human that actually cares about truth and justice in this country. His staff was respectful, courteous, and very responsive. I would recommend Mr. Skillman to anyone who needs an honorable lawyer to take their side.”
“I have known Mr. Bottner & Mr. Skillman for about three years. They are always professional and do their research in a case. I have known them always to return my calls, and if they didn’t have an answer for me at that exact moment, they would always get back to me. I would recommend them to anyone. Their office staff is friendly and always helpful. I couldn’t say enough good things about them. They have helped me many times with business matters.”
