I hired Caitlin for a modification case. Caitlin was very knowledgeable and honest. She was bold and helped me thru the process, she explained everything so I was never lost. I'm so glad I hired her she made sure the results came out the way she said they would. If I needed to I would hire her again!

For my divorce proceedings, I retained the services of a high powered “River Oaks” attorney off San Felipe/Mid Ln. Soon into my case I found out all that mattered was how much billable I was. After their lackluster performance at my temporary order hearing, I sought new counsel. Because of the complexity of my case I interviewed 4 different attorneys resulting in the selection of Skillern Law. Upon meeting Matt, I knew I had landed at the right place. Matt immediately puts you at ease and lets you know he’s your empathizing advocate. Within a couple of hours he had a good grasp of my case and off to the battlefield we were. Mine was a contentious case filled with allegations and false lies crossing international boundaries involving eastern traditions and customs. Add to that an opposing counsel from a large firm with unlimited resources. I was delighted to observe; “it was not the size of the dog in the fight, but rather the size of the fight in the dog”. One by one Matt shut it down! He argued emphatically and with conviction. I set five conditions for victory and Matt fought to where I got four out of five. Needless to say Matt is backed by an astute and dedicated team, from the detail oriented David Medina to the articulate and forceful Tina Floridia to Tonya D. to Adrienne C… the list goes on – I was well represented. I highly recommend Skillern Law PLLC for they ARE a force to be reckoned with.

I hired Matt for my complicated divorce case and he outperformed. He is very knowledgeable, honest and passionate. He cares about people. With his great human and analytical skills he was able to resolve my case and get me more than what I asked for. He takes time to listen and understand your problems. He will deliver what he promised.
Matt and his staff will return calls the same day. They are very professional, attentive, caring and supportive. Matt deserves more than 5 star review. I would highly recommend Matt and his staff!

I recently went through a divorce and had the Skillern Firm represent me. The team of lawyers I worked with included Matt Skillern and Caitlin Thorpe. Both Matt and Caitlin did a great job of keeping my case on track and keeping me informed on all important details.
The case was settled recently and I am very happy with the results. I continue to stay in touch with Caitlin and am always treated with respect and as a valued client.
Overall it has been a great experience working with the Skillern Firm and I would highly recommend Matt and Caitlin to anyone needing representation with a family law issue.

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 Law to anyone going through divorce.

Matt Skillern was not just my divorce lawyer. He was my corner coach championing, guiding, nudging, helping me stay strong, stay focused, stay all in. Matt and Melissa operated with a positive mindset, leading me through the labyrinth of forms, court proceedings, more forms, gathering massive amounts of necessary information—always moving forward, always providing insights and understanding along the way.
Matt is honest and straightforward. No hidden costs. No surprise turns. The process was laid out clearly. The challenges he foresaw, the behaviors we encountered, the end he anticipated were carefully and caringly explained and achieved. You need a lawyer if you’re getting a divorce. You need to have someone who’s in your corner and by your side through the journey. You need the best. And that’s Matt.

Absolutely the best group of family lawyers in Houston. Mr. Skillern was prepaired 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 needs family law help, call Mr. Skillerns office.

Matt and his team were EXCELLENT from day one. They LISTENED TO ME and helped me to make the process of divorce as painless as possible. I never felt like Matt had an agenda other than to help me to achieve the best outcome. I selected Matt based on other excellent reviews, even though I was an out of town Client. The distance was never an issue and his team was always very responsive, and represented me well when working with my ex's counsel. At times, my ex even said he wished his attorney was as responsive and helpful as Matt and his team.
I am a tenured marketing executive, so my expectations on communication and professionalism are very high. Matt and his team MET AND EXCEEDED ALL OF MY EXPECTATIONS. The result, I had a quick and painless divorce that DID NOT COST ME A FORTUNE... and yes I had children and community assets to be considered.
If you want the BEST REPRESENTATION, call Matt Skillern now!
