My name is Katrina Skinner. In addition to being a lawyer, I am a mother, a daughter, a friend, an advisor, and an advocate.
Long ago, I guided rafting trips in Alaska, taught English in Mexico City, and worked in the financial industry during the .com boom. Then I went to law school.
Over the past 10 years, I have spent countless hours assisting my clients in resolving legal disputes. When I was an associate, I learned from others who graciously shared their hard earned experience. When I was a partner, I gained additional experience on my own.
I've learned that the wheels of justice turn slowly; that often, navigating the justice system entails long, hard fought battles; and that justice does not come in one size fits all.
More often than not, when legal problems arise, solutions are costly and, rarely, if ever, do they fix what has been broken.
However, I believe that some of the damage associated with legal problems can be avoided with an investment in proper planning.
Proper planning protects you, your family and your dreams. This is my job.
If, like so many of us, you have failed to plan, or you have a plan that isn't working-- no problem. I can help you find a solution regardless of where you are right now in your journey.
On the other hand, if you find yourself in a place that you know you should and actually can plan, then together we will lay out your plans, define your expectaions, and outline your intentions so that you, and others, will understand where you have come from. Even better, you and everyone else will know where you are going.
