Originally from the windy city, Keith Skoney attended college in Wisconsin and has performed the duties of research analyst at Parker Law Firm for two years. His position came to fruition when friend and neighbor Brad Parker expressed a need for Keith’s particular set of skills as they shared drinks on his back porch.
Keith describes himself as an open book. “What you see is what you get. I lay it all out there,” he says. Married for nearly 30 years, Keith and his wife love to travel and are proud parents to a daughter who graduated from Tarleton State University.
Before taking his role at the firm, Keith worked at Delta handling airplane maintenance for 38 years. It was there that he met a group of buddies that he’s been fishing with for nearly four decades. “We only go after the freshwater fish and only use artificial bait, never live…it makes it more of a sport. I mainly do catch and release. That’s why I prefer fishing to hunting because you can let them go,” Keith says. He has won several tournaments on local Texas lakes and welcomes anyone aboard his boat that he finds agreeable.
Keith often works directly with the firm’s clients. “I always treat them with respect, dignity and compassion. In my work, I do believe I’m facilitating justice,” he says. Perhaps it’s all of that experience in locating fish that makes him so good at reeling in the valuable nuggets of information that allow the firm to have successful outcomes for their cases.
