In 1969, after serving as Prosecuting Attorney of Jefferson County, John C. Skinner, Jr. joined his mentor and friend, F. Dean Nichols, and founded the law firm of Nichols & Skinner. After decades of serving the people of Jefferson County, Dean Nichols retired in January of 1981, and John Skinner retired in the spring of 2015.
Stephen Skinner returned to the firm after working for five years as a plaintiff’s lawyer in New York City. Andrew Skinner started his legal career in the Chicago office of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom before returning to his hometown to join his brother and father at Nichols & Skinner, which was renamed Skinner Law Firm in 2008. That same year, Laura Davis joined the firm, bringing years of experience in handling bad faith insurance claims and complex litigation.
