Skyler has several years of experience dedicated to immigration. Dating back to his first year in law school through pro bono clinics and internships, Skyler’s focus has always been immigration law. As an attorney, he has successfully navigated clients through the tangled webs of immigration law through U.S. embassies and consulates throughout the world, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and the immigration and appellate courts. Few things give him more satisfaction than successfully fighting off any given branch of the government seeking to infringe upon the basic human rights of individuals and families. Skyler lived for two years in southern Chile, where he became fluent in Spanish and where he developed a love for foreign cultures. Upon returning to the United States, Skyler continued his study of the language, receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Brigham Young University in 2007. He went on to receive his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law in 2009. Skyler has served on the executive committee of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) since May of 2012, and is currently the chapter chair of the Utah chapter of this national organization. He has held leadership positions and/or volunteered at the Horizonte Pro Bono Immigration Clinic since 2008. He is a former judicial clerk for the Immigration Court in Salt Lake City, Utah. He has been recognized for his service to the minority community by the NAACP, and was a recipient of the College of Law Outstanding Achievement Award in Immigration Law.
