Not honest – This firm is horrible and incompetent.
I hired Skubiak & Rivas P A several months ago regarding my daughter's ticket. Prior to hiring them I spoke with Kiel on three occasions prior to submitting the check and inquired as to whether the firm took tickets seriously, or simply sent someone inexperienced and pleaded everyone "no contest" thereby not having the ticket truly dismissed. Kiel told me that it was rare that the firm did not have the ticket entirely dismissed, especially if the person who received the ticket had no points or anything other adverse items on their drivers’ license.
I would also like to mention that I called the firm three other times to follow up on the ticket, as to when it was on the docket, and to speak with a real attorney to reiterate that you were not to plead "nole." Both Kiel and the receptionist adamantly refused to connect me to an actual attorney, advising that each could assist me without the benefit of transferring me to one of the firm attorneys.
Well, apparently everyone outright lied. When the appropriate time came in direct opposition of my instructions, when it came time to appear in person, the firm pleaded nole on my daughter's ticket - NOT "not guilty" as I had insisted upon. After that, instead of calling to tell me what happened, they sent a letter to an on campus mailbox - to a university student who is not even there.
If I did not call them a fourth time, I would never have found out how Skubiak & Rivas was untruthful, lazy, did not do their job accordingly, and there was a fee due to the Court prior to a certain date.
On my end I am contacting the Florida Bar to determine if a formal complaint could be filed against the firm. Since Kiel is not an attorney I will simply advise someone in the firm of his ineffectualness. Additionally, I am also citing my dissatisfaction with the firm's untruthfulness on as many on line review areas as possible.
