Krasnodar, 27 February – Yug Times. Maksim Skibin, a young but successful lawyer, is not scared to leap into any case - be it criminal or civil. His portfolio includes dozens of cases won at court. He agrees to work even with such complicated and intricate cases which most experienced lawyers have refused to consider.
When leaving secondary school, Maksim already knew that law would be his future trade.
“Then it was the fashion to study to become a lawyer or an economist,” he recalls. “But my decision was carefully thought out and well substantiated - I knew perfectly well what I wanted to deal with.”
Upon graduating, Skibin opened a legal office in his native town of Kurganinsk and set about rendering legal services. Soon he gained experienced and was granted the attorney’s status and the right to represent interests of the injured persons at court.
From his own practice Maksim knows that conflicts among close relatives over bequests have presently become the most frequent civil cases.
In order to win a case, the lawyer should act as a sleuth - because even law enforcement agencies often commit mistakes in the course of investigation. Then it is the attorney who should search for truth.
“Most frequently, the success of a case depends not only upon the lawyer but upon the client himself,” Skibin says. “Quite often, we have to work with the clients who have said good-bye to all hopes and lost their heart - and our main task is to find the right approach, to persuade the client that he must be strong to fight for justice.”
Maksim believes that to be successful, a person must continuously self-educate.
