  • Robert Reid McInvale

    I endorse this lawyer, Matt Skillern, very strongly.I have had a number of cases on the opposite side of Matthew Skillern. In each case he managed to do what lawyers usually cannot: fight hard for his client while acting as a professional and a gentleman. Most recently, we ended up settling the case after a contentious court hearing wherein Matt fought hard and effectively for his client. I know Matt fights for his clients. I heartily recommend Matt as a family law attorney.
