About Michael E. Skiber
I began my professional career in the high stakes world of Wall Street where I worked in securities trading environments at some of the most prestigious international banks. Although I was successful, I was not fulfilled and decided I needed more. I self-funded my education to follow my real passion, law. The day I was notified I passed the Connecticut bar I immediately began The Law Office of Michael E. Skiber in Bridgeport as a criminal law firm, with just a phone and a desk. Most lawyers will begin their legal profession working for a large firm. However, I knew that the only way I could practice law was my own way and that was how I was going to make a difference. After I was granted a law license, I was also immediately appointed as a special public defender where I tried close to 20 felony jury trials in a seven-year period. I quickly earned a reputation as someone who did not back down and would fight to the end for my client’s rights, even at the cost of upsetting the status quo. However, my very first injury client changed my focus forever. The injured client came into my office as a referral. He was run over by a cleaning machine while working at a local supermarket, rendering him disabled. The supermarket denied liability and turned its back on him. Three years later, I settled this case for high six-figures.
Why I Am an Injury Lawyer My first injury case helped me realize how important I was to that client and that I was now part of the client’s family. I also realized what it takes to be an injury attorney. You have to not only understand your client’s situation and work in their best interest, but you also have to put yourself in their shoes and fight for them as you would for your own family. That way, you are 100 percent invested in the client and their family’s success. I have taken that understanding and bring it to every one of my cases. My firm and I know what it takes, and we employ the same client-focused approach in every one of our cases. We work to make sure you receive the absolute best result possible.
