About Skager Law

After years of watching my own father fight for people in the legal system, I opened my own practice in 1997.

I have helped motorists mitigate or eliminate the negative effects a conviction for speeding and other moving violations ever since.

Skager Law focuses specifically on:

Traffic Law


Criminal Law

I intentionally limit my practice to these areas so I can provide clients the most cost effective, experienced legal representation possible.

The Skager Law fee schedule is flexible because I am willing to work with any client so they can receive competent representation without spending all their savings to stay out of jail or to save money on their insurance. After all, what good will it be to save money on insurance if you spent all of yours on legal representation?

Eric Skager,

Criminal Defense Attorney

As previously mentioned, I grew up watching my father support and defend thousands of people through the North Carolina legal system. I was born in Indiana, spent my high school years in North Carolina, returned to Indiana University for college, and finally settled in North Carolina in 1997 to be closer to my family. As a criminal defense attorney, I’m dedicated to making my clients happy with their circumstances. My easy-going attitude makes clients feel comfortable but I still maintain sharp negotiating and advocacy skills for the courtroom.


When I’m not fighting for my clients in court or consulting with them at the office, I’m either spending time with my two sons, on the lake fishing for bass, or working on a vintage motorcycle.

Linda Vasquez

Assistant and Translator

Linda joined the Skager Law practice over four years ago when I represented a family member who asked on her behalf if I needed someone to help with translating for Hispanic clients. And she’s been a pivotal part of my legal practice ever since. Linda has a passion for contributing to and helping the Hispanic community in the Greensboro and High Point community. In addition to being a native Spanish speaking translator for Skager Law clients, Linda manages the practice by handling the day to day aspects.  Her responsibilities include updating Skager Law clients on the status of their criminal law or traffic law case.


Born in Mission, Texas, Linda found her way to Greensboro, North Carolina when her husband was transferred by his employer. When she’s not working, she is actively involved with The Way Church where she volunteers with various church projects, mostly focused on the homeless, and teaches Sunday School.
