Timely and Positive

Mr. Skillern was wonderful in my case. He always informed me on the positive and negative side of my case. He made sure that I was comfortable in every way. Always return my calls in a timely matter. Very professional person. Good job to Mr. Skillern and his team.

Bobby on Avvo

Wipes the floor with the opposition.

Absolutely the best group of divorce lawyers in Houston. Mr. Skillern was prepared and ready for a long fight when we went to court, after making our arguments, the judge ruled in my favor and had our opposition pay the majority of the fees and charges. It was easy and a pleasure to work with Mr. Skillern. He is very knowledgeable and has the experience one hopes for when your life is turning end over end. If you live in the Houston area and need family law help, call Mr. Skillern’s office.
Eric B. on Avvo

Logical and Supportive

I really appreciated working with Matt and Melissa.  Matt has a great attitude towards a difficult situation and did a great job of talking through things logically when all I could focus on was the emotions! 😉  I highly recommend Skillern Firm to anyone going through divorce.

Troy on Avvo

Extremely Helpful, and Really Professional

I went to Matthew Skillern with my divorce. My spouse’s lawyer would barely do anything to help us, and would never respond to any of our requests. Mr. Skillern and his assistant helped me a lot, and always answered my questions in a short amount of time. I highly recommend using him.
