Meet Our Associate Attorney, Mikaila Matt.

divorce lawyerNow a divorce lawyer, Mikaila grew up traveling the world in support of her father’s military career, which gave her insight into different cultures and customs from those travels.

After high school, Mikaila graduated from Coe College in Iowa where she was heavily involved in campus and community activities like the annual Dance Marathon and tutoring adults in English at the Catherine McAuley Center.  She also volunteered at Kids First Law Center where she taught children about divorce in an age-appropriate manner.

In 2016, Mikaila moved to Charleston to attend the Charleston School of Law.  There, she was a Senior Fellow for the Legal Research and Writing Department, Associate Editor-in-Chief of Resolved, and Editor-in-Chief of MALABU.  During law school, she clerked for Charleston Pro Bono Legal Services and a local family law firm before graduating in the top 15% of her law school class.  In other words, she started gaining experience before she became a licensed attorney.

Mikaila loves to travel, experiment in the kitchen with new gadgets, take yoga classes, and hang out with her boxer-pointer mix puppy. In January 2022, Mikaila began working as an adjunct professor at the Charleston School of Law, teaching Legal Research Analysis & Writing and Legal Skills.
