Tristan went way above & beyond my expectations!! After hiring & firing 2 attorneys during a nasty custody battle I had no faith left in the family court system or attorneys, until I met Tristan & the Skillern Firm! He worked very HARD for my son & I, always kept me in the loop and didn't stop until he made a very wrong situation right! I wouldn't hire anyone but Tristan, he is top notch, he takes his job very seriously & will do everything in his power to help!

After two different attorneys, my case was all but lost, until I found Mr. Longino. From the moment I first talked to Mr. Longino until my case was over, I was at complete ease that I had made the right choice. I emailed the law firm requesting a consultation 5 days before my next hearing. I received a call within an hour to schedule a phone consultation for the following day. Mr. Longino looked at my case and did some initial research before the consultation. He was honest and straightforward about my case. He described in detail what approach he would take in representing me and why he felt it would be a better route. By the hearing date, Mr. Longino had done more for my case than my previous attorney had done in 8 months. He worked on my complicated case for a year, and not once did I feel frustrated or lost as to what was going on. He is very thorough in his preparation for hearings and is exactly who you want at your side when dealing with legal issues. An aggressive, yet calm attorney who is knowledgeable and trustworthy is hard to find. I can’t thank him enough for what he did.

I had the unfortunate experience of going through a divorce and hired the Skillern Law Firm. Tristan handled my case and the mediation. I was blown away by his knowledge of the tax consequences and how decisions could affect my taxes. He was thinking 5 moves ahead of the other side. Brilliant attorney and amazing litigator. I am a trial lawyer and he is who I hired.

I have great respect for Tristan as a fellow colleague. He is intelligent, hard working, and professional. I frequently bend his ear to discuss complex and technical legal issues; he is highly knowledgeable and always offers an intellectual perspective.

Tristan is highly skilled in family law and advocated very well on behalf of his client. He was thorough in his research and argued the legal issues effectively in court. Most importantly, he is very ethical. I have a great deal of respect for Tristan.
