John Skabelund is not your typical attorney.  Prior to law school, he was a serial entrepreneur.  He has owned and operated a real estate development company, consulting company and internet company.  He hired attorneys in the past both professionally and personally.  He knows what it is like to be the client.  As a result, he caters his practice to provide excellent service and exceptional results.  He often is complimented that he makes complicated things simple for clients to understand. 

John’s practice is in three primary areas: business law, trust and estates and residential real estate transactions. 

As a former business owner, MBA and accountant, he understands how companies grow.  He provides not only legally accurate advice, but practical solutions.  Whether you are buying or selling your busines, need contract review or drafting, desire business succession planning or anything else in between, John can help you.

John not only drafts estate plans, but he also a trial attorney.  John regularly creates custom estate plans, special needs planning, IRA trusts, and wealth protection strategies.  He also administers estates and trusts and obtains guardian and conservatorships.  If you need to resolve a dispute regarding a Will, trust or guardian and conservatorship, he will defend your rights. 

John’s real estate practice is limited to residential real estate.  Buying and selling real estate, deeds and leases are his primary areas of focus. 

If you have a need that John is unable to help you with, he is part of a large firm with approximately 70 attorneys.  He is able to get you in good hands if he can't help you.
