Focusing her practice exclusively on family law matters, Robin W. Klein is senior counsel at the Skillern Firm, PLLC. Located in Houston, Texas, she provides astute and compassionate representation to clients throughout the greater metropolitan area. Ms. Klein has been admitted to practice before all Texas state courts since 2006, and she has been certified as a specialist in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Ms. Klein's client base is primarily made up of people who are facing the end of their marriages and who are thus having to deal with such divorce-related issues as the division of complex assets and debts, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support. A forceful courtroom advocate for her clients when litigation proves to be necessary, her extensive experience in negotiations and meditation often allows her to help many of them come to an accord on these matters through the use of such alternative dispute resolution methods. Ms. Klein also assists people whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who are now seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing parenting and support court orders, and she has prepared and reviewed prenuptial and post-marital agreements. Her sensitive approach to what are often emotional matters has earned her an "Excellent" peer review rating through Avvo.

Ms. Klein grew up in the Houston area and attended Stephen F. Austin State University, where she majored in communications and received a Bachelor of Arts. After working in the pharmaceutical industry, she pursued her legal education at South Texas College of Law Houston and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2004. She has been with her current firm since January 2020.
