In an era when fewer and fewer civil cases go to trial, Mr. Finkbohner has established a track record of multi-million dollar jury verdicts in a wide variety of different types of cases, including those arising out of industrial accidents, product liability, wrongful death, medical negligence, insurance fraud, environmental pollution, business wrongdoing, and others. He has represented plaintiffs in cases that resulted in some of the nation's top jury verdicts, as compiled and reported by the National Law Journal and other news agencies.
Skip and his wife Sandra live in Theodore with their three daughters, Baxter, Rachel and Hannah Marie.
