What Past Clients Say About Us

Tina and staff were so amazing during every process. Any questions I had, Tina answered immediately.

Getting a divorce was nothing I wished for. It is a time of confusion, despair and worry. This is VERY valuable to a person who ask a lot of questions and is also very inpatient. Tina was wonderful during mediation and even when my divorce was over and I needed MORE help, she was just an email away. Tina truly was the most wonderful lawyer to work with. I will always be thankful for her hard work and guidance.

Matt and Tina at Skillern law firm are 2 of the best lawyers in Fort bend County and Greater houston area. Matt and Tina were able to defend false allegations against me from my previous spouse which could have resulted in my children being taken away from me.

Matt was able to win me 50-50 custody and grant child support in the form of self supporting my children when in my custody. This is what I wanted and prayed for. Matt and Tina are a team by your side, I highly recommend them for anyone going through a divorce with an unreasonable spouse.

He was fair, he listened, he was straightforward with me when I was wrong but he was a tireless advocate for what I deserved.

After almost three years of legal battles and drama and multiple attorneys, we found John Schmude. He came in, made the complex simple, cut through the drama and nonsense, took quick action on my behalf, and stood his ground. He was fair, he listened, he was straightforward with me when I was wrong but he was a tireless advocate for what I deserved, he was incredibly well-prepared, and he actually cared.

As for the outcome? To put it simply, we won EVERYTHING.

I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Matt Skillern and his team helped me gain primary custody of my 12-month daughter through incredible effort, sharp legal knowledge and skill, and compassion for justice.

Matt Skillern and his team helped me gain primary custody of my 12-month daughter through incredible effort, sharp legal knowledge and skill, and compassion for justice. In the beginning I felt lost, betrayed, and scared. I didn’t know who I could trust but when I met Matt, I knew I wanted him to represent me because he is honest and sincere. He truly cares about you and your family. He has the vision the see the bigger picture and prepares you for realistic outcomes. Inside the courtroom Matt is relentless. He commands the court room and is detail oriented. He does not back down and strategically attacks arguments. He fights for your rights and for justice to be served.

Looking back, I appreciated the personal stories and anecdotes Matt shared with me regarding obstacles in marriage and raising kids. He helped me grow into a better parent and a better person. I cannot say enough about the Skillern Law Firm – from a true leader in Matt Skillern, his eloquent associate attorney Concetta (Tina) Florida, and his organized and efficient paralegal David Medina. They all stood by my side through multiple hearings that crossed state lines and purposeful delays by the opposing side. The Skillern Law Firm is not only the best law firm in Houston but perhaps more importantly they are compassionate, honest, and wonderful people who you can trust during this vulnerable time.

Matt and Melissa are a superstar team.

Matt and Melissa are a superstar team. They are extremely communicative, straight forward and accessible. I appreciate the time and dedication they take to know my case inside and out; no matter how much time passes between our communication they always know the details. Matt gives straight forward advice to help move the case to conclusion swiftly. He seeks a mediated settlement first, but isn’t afraid to go to trial. The office staff conducts accurate, fair bookkeeping that’s clear.
