Christopher A. Skipper
After graduating from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1996, Chris returned to the Lowcountry and went to work as an assistant solicitor in the Berkeley County Solicitor's Office. He prosecuted cases for an additional four years in the Charleston County Solicitor's Office. Throughout his six years as a prosecutor, Chris handled hundreds of cases that involved crimes from Driving Under Suspension to Murder.
Prior to opening the Skipper Law Firm, LLC, Chris spent a little over a year practicing in the area of workers' compensation insurance defense. The experience he gained as an attorney for the insurance companies provided excellent insight into how they handle claims and is a valuable asset in his representation of injured workers before the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission.
Chris serves as the Associate Judge for the City of Folly Beach Municipal Court and the City Prosecutor for the City of Isle of Palms. He has the experience and background to evaluate each case from all perspectives (defense lawyer, prosecutor, judge).
