As a new Associate Attorney with Skubiak & Rivas, P.A. I’m excited to be part of one of Orlando’s most established criminal and traffic defense firms. This will be my first of many blogs highlighting pertinent areas of criminal and traffic legal issues. However, for this inaugural blog I would like to focus on the firm itself and discuss how I came to work for Skubiak & Rivas, P.A.
I first became acquainted with Skubiak & Rivas, P.A. while working as an Assistant State Attorney with the State of Florida. A substantial portion of my caseload consisted of criminal traffic cases. Whenever I saw Skubiak & Rivas, P.A. as the defense firm on a case I always knew what to expect. The attorneys were consistently prepared, legally knowledgeable, and aggressively represented their clients. Furthermore, their professionalism both in and out of the courtroom gained respect from prosecutors and judges alike.
After three years as a prosecutor I decided to take my skills and experience to a private firm. I chose Skubiak & Rivas, P.A. not only because they are well known in Orlando but also because I could see their passion for what they do. Anyone who speaks to either partner, Robert Skubiak or Alain Rivas, will immediately notice the dedication to their clients. Since it is the people that make the firm, it was clear this firm was a good fit for me.
At Skubiak & Rivas, P.A, the primary goal is to attain the best possible results for the clients. This is accomplished through knowledge and experience in the field of practice. Robert Skubiak and Alain Rivas have over thirty years of combined legal experience. They appreciate the importance of having a working knowledge of this area of the law and considered this when hiring me as an Associate Attorney.
For three years I served as a Deputy Sheriff with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Reserve Unit. During that time I had extensive training and experience in enforcing Florida’s traffic laws. Conducting traffic stops, issuing courtesy notices and traffic citations, and making traffic arrests were routine activities while on patrol. Other duties included seizing and searching persons and property. This real world experience is invaluable in defending criminal cases and traffic infractions.
Now that I am an Associate Attorney with Skubiak & Rivas, P.A, I have the opportunity to put my knowledge and experience to work for my clients. I am truly honored to be a part of this prestigious Orlando defense firm. Future blogs will be forthcoming regarding relevant topics on criminal and traffic legal issues.
