Robert P. Skubiak founded Skubiak & Rivas, P.A., on the belief that those facing auto-related violations and charges deserve the most aggressive traffic defense and criminal representation available.
As senior partner, Robert has represented thousands of Central Florida residents and visitors from his Orlando-based office, which he began in 1993. To expand the firm’s capabilities and scope, Alain Rivas joined the practice in 2001.
Recognized and regarded as one of the most prominent traffic defense attorneys in the region, Robert earned his “tough but fair” reputation among local judges, attorneys and community leaders. Almost daily, he can be seen in action in courtrooms throughout Central Florida.
Robert earned a prestigious Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Michigan with High Distinction; and earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Florida. His extraordinary career arc began by working for The United States Department of Justice in Washington D.C. This high profile federal position contributed to his unique talent to always pay attention to detail while not losing sight of the big picture on a national level.
Robert decided he wanted to aggressively practice law for a wide range of individual clients. Being bilingual, he came to Orlando to develop criminal traffic defense as an associate attorney for a prominent law firm. Robert then started his own firm so that he could personally bring his philosophy that an excellently prepared attorney presents the best opportunity for victory in court. Under his leadership, Skubiak & Rivas, P.A. enjoys an outstanding reputation for dogged determination to win legal battles for their clients.
In his spare time, Robert is a competitive tennis player, and has enjoyed acting on stage and for television. Born in Chicago and raised in Holmdel, NJ, Robert has called Florida home since 1990.
