I made a review in 2017 i will again make a review now 2022. Thank you Jackie for everything that you do for me. Forever thankful. I have paid everything already. On one spring day back in 2017 i was in a lot of stress, dealing with phone calls from the bank. A friend of mine told me to go to David Sklar’s office (its close to my apartment) as she is also paying hers( in another firm). So i did and i was glad i did. Thank you and God speed!

(From K.M)After a great deal of thought, that actually went on far too long and only created more hardship, I finally called David Sklar and Associates. They immediately set up a mutual time for an in person appointment. I had the greatest fortune to meet with Jerry Janiec!From the moment I met Jerry, I felt at ease and the weight I had been bearing began to lift.Jerry is very personable with a happy, kind, patient and gentle nature. He is very knowledgeable and extremely thorough in all of the information and options that were presented. Jerry was very supportive in the option I chose.I read other reviews on David Sklar and Associates and I whole heartedly agree. If you are struggling and it seems never ending, make the call to these people. I should have much, much sooner.Thank you so very much Jerry Janiec. You truly are a blessing.Sincerely, Karen M.
