Now a 25-year veteran of real estate and title insurance law, general civil litigation, business law and estate planning, Thomas J. “Jay” Skinner, IV, founded our firm in 2008. Mr. Skinner brought to his own practice extensive experience in all aspects of real estate law, including real estate closings, representing the insured in real estate litigation, traditional title claims such as boundary issues, land use disputes, leases, and surface water claims. Mr. Skinner’s work included defending agents and companies against fraud and negligence claims, and representing title insurance companies and associated insured parties, as well as individuals and businesses, across a broad range of real estate legal matters. In addition to his private practice, Mr. Skinner serves as the Command Judge Advocate for the 31st CBRN Brigade of the Alabama Army National Guard.
Our practice quickly expanded into real property tax sale issues and fire dues sale redemptions, working with mortgage companies, escrow servicing agents, individuals and other entities. In 2009 the fast-growing firm added Cherokee W. Wooley and Charles L. Sparks to our team of attorneys. Now a partner, Mrs. Wooley brought an added focus on title insurance law and related real estate litigation, having previously worked as an associate with King & Spalding in Atlanta in the area of Public Finance. Mr. Sparks is Of Counsel with our firm, assisting in litigation matters, but with primary practice in estate planning, probate, wills and trusts.
