Matthew is a Family Law Attorney, a Certified Family Law Specialist, a Certified Public Accountant, and founding partner of Skarin Law Group, APC.
Matthew’s legal practice is primarily focused on clients during the pendency of their divorce. Matthew uses his wide variety of legal and financial skills to effectively and artfully guide high net worth individuals, business owners, and investors through the process of dissolution. Through Matthew’s extensive experience he is able to discern the potential pitfalls to his client early in the process, allowing him the opportunity to communicate these issues to the client and take steps to minimize exposure.
Following the completion of the divorce, Matthew will assist in effectuating the terms of the Judgment following the divorce, and will ensure that all orders have been abided by and all loose ends are tied up.
Matthew was a child of divorce, as his parents had a fairly contentious divorce when he was 10 years old. When Matthew became an attorney later in life, he was drawn to family law as a means of helping people in this particular time of need. After practicing for more than 10 years in the family law community, Matthew knows how to best serve his clients, often approaching the case from a cost vs. benefit perspective. When Matthew learned about Vesta, he was impressed with the focus on informing the community about the dissolution process rather than the typical focus of referring business. Matthew joined Vesta as a means to reach out to the community and assist those that are currently going through the divorce process but might not know where to turn.
Matthew graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara with a degree in Business Economics and an emphasis in Accounting. After working for four years as a Certified Public Accountant at major accounting firms, Matthew went to Loyola Law School in Los Angeles to get his JD. After graduating law school, Matthew worked for over a decade at one of the largest family law firms in Los Angeles where he was a partner for several years before leaving. Now Matthew is the founding partner of Skarin Law Group, APC. Matthew is also a Certified Public Accountant, an Attorney and Certified Family Law Specialist, and a Real Estate Broker.
