About Our Family Law Firm
A Different Approach to the Attorney-Client Relationship
We take a different approach to family law; our role is not just to champion for your interests, but to act as your advisor, a practice carried over from Matthew A. Skillern's former criminal practice and Tristan H. Longino's work a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch. We explain how the law applies to your situation so that you can evaluate your options. Just as a broker explains the risks as well as rewards of an investment, we provide you a balanced view of your case to empower you to make the most education decisions possible. Having these conversations can potentially spare all persons involved time and money by preventing emotions or unrealistic expectations from driving unnecessary litigation.
A Different Approach to Family Law
We understand the day-to-day responsibilities and difficulties you are facing - for that reason, our practice has been created to accommodate working professionals. We provide you with 24/7 online access to your case through a secure account and by taking advantage of the latest technology available, such as Google Hangouts and Skype; so that we can remotely conference when your schedule does not afford the luxury of a traditional face-to-face meeting. In fact, depending on the complexity of your case, it is possible that we may only need to meet in person once at the entry of your agreement with the court.
The Issues in Your Case
The areas of family and divorce law can quickly become very complicated when there are interconnected issues. Some examples include:
These matters often can be further complicated by the frequent and confusing changes to the Texas Family Code during legislative sessions, such as the major changes recently made to spousal maintenance (alimony) in the 2011 legislative session and the upcoming changes that will take effect September 1, 2013, that increase the monthly cap for calculating child support.
This may be the most important legal issue you ever face. It is of utmost importance to have an attorney who understands all of your legal concerns and how those issues affect you and your family’s future.
