Using The Law
To Empower The Powerless

Whether you have been physically or financially injured by another person, your boss or a police officer, you do have the right to take legal action against these parties. However, corporations, businesses, employers and law enforcement agencies are powerful entities that can use their financial and legal resources to steamroll the individuals they have wronged.

You can take a stand against this injustice, and I can help. Since 1985, I have represented men and women from all walks of life in Detroit and the surrounding area. When you entrust your civil rights claim, employment matter, police misconduct concern or personal injury case to me, I will not quit until I get the results that you deserve.

Those in power have used the law to shield them against injustice for decades. I’m here to counter their tactics and use the law for your benefit. Contact my firm, Joel B. Sklar Law, today to get the experienced advocacy you deserve.

Holding Accountable
Parties Responsible

You may believe that you have a solid case after you have been wronged at work, suffered injuries by a negligent individual or been victimized by law enforcement. But it can still be intimidating to stand up against those who have hurt you. Turn to me during this difficult time.

As your legal ally, I will seek out the most efficient way to secure compensation for your injuries. I know how the other side thinks and use this insight to create effective strategies that obtain favorable settlements.

I am a trial-tested litigator who is always up for the challenge when negotiations fall through. I will not back down when your rights, your livelihood and your financial welfare are at stake. Together, we can take steps to hold those accountable liable. Working by your side, I will make it my mission to make these individuals, companies or institutions think twice before they inflict similar harm on others in the future.
