David and Christine Skilton joined him in 1992 fulfilling a promise to carry on his legacy, priding themselves every day on their ability to solve the tough and sensitive legal problems of their clients.

David and Christine Skilton are terrific lawyers who helped my family regain several hundred acres of Iowa farmland, which had been placed in trust for us by our grandparents, but mismanaged by the trustee. David is a skillful trial lawyer with a very creative mind, who knows case law inside and out. His training and experience as a JAG lawyer differentiate him from any other lawyer you are likely to find. I also found his advice regarding my own estate to be very thoughtful and valuable. I highly recommend his services. Christine runs the law office, and was helpful during the trial.
