Associate Attorney

Louisville divorce attorney Miles Devon Skeens IVLouisville divorce attorney Miles Devon Skeens IV got into the practice of law because it gives him the opportunity to help people. Family law, in particular, allows him to make a positive impact on his clients’ lives.

Mr. Skeens’ top priority is to always look out for his client’s best interest.

“I am the type of attorney who is always thinking about potential resolution,” he said.

“It also cuts down on litigation expenses and allows you to tailor an arrangement to your lifestyle,” Mr. Skeens said. “With that in mind, I often tell clients to immediately begin thinking about their situation in terms of what they would like to get out of the case, and what they would be willing to give in order to get that.”
