The legendary and honorable Judge Greg Mathis, Sr. and his family are ready to share their unfiltered lives with the world.  The Judge might rule the courtroom, but at home he is just “Dad.” Judge Mathis and his wife, Linda Mathis and their four grown children – Jade Mathis, Camara Mathis Webb, Greg Mathis, Jr., and Amir Mathis – along with their own careers, relationships, personalities, and off the wall dynamics are ready to take Los Angeles by storm. The family docu-series offers a rare look into the Mathis’ exclusive Hollywood lifestyle and family fun. Mathis Family Matters premieres with back-to-back episodes on the 31st of July at 20:00 on E!.

Mathis Family Matters follows Judge Mathis and his wife, Linda as two of their adult children move back to Los Angeles to all find their way and join the rest of the family. Judge Mathis has had great success helping others, but when it comes to his family, his opinions and being an “expert on everything” sometimes falls flat as he helps to guide his children through adulthood. Linda, the matriarch of the family, has a fabulous quick wit personality and since this is the first time the family has been under one roof in long time, it’s her mission to keep everyone together through the ups and downs. The firstborn, Jade is living life to the fullest on both coasts, as she decides if her dreams of being a full-time motivational speaker outweigh her career in law. Camara can do no wrong in the eyes of the Judge, and with the nickname “Mother Mathis” she has started a family of her own along with her husband, Ryan and daughters Nora and Zara. Camara is trying to manage it all as she works on balancing family life and her law career. Greg Jr. and his long-term boyfriend, Elliott are busy working on multiple real estate ventures, and as they take their relationship to the next level, they struggle with sharing their true bond with the world. The youngest, Amir is building his own production empire, and after a recent divorce he jumps right back into another serious relationship causing his siblings to intercede with a love intervention. The Mathis crew is ready to shake things up with fun, big laughs and family love at the core. 

Meet The Mathis Family:

Judge Greg Mathis, Sr.

Judge Greg Mathis, a national figure and father known for his advocacy campaigns for urban youth and equal justice, is the longest-running African-American male host on television. His inspirational life story of a street youth who rose from jail to Judge has provided hope to millions who watch him on the Emmy Award-winning television court show Judge Mathis and now he is sharing what life is like with his family on E!’s Mathis Family Matters.

Judge Mathis’s public service career began in college where he led Free South Africa and voter registration campaigns on campus, while also working nights at McDonalds as a swing manager. After graduating from college in 1983, he joined the staff of Detroit City Councilman Clyde Cleveland and continued to work as an advocate for equal justice with Reverend Jesse Jackson’s PUSH Excel, where he currently serves as chairman. Judge Mathis has also served as a national board member of the NAACP and the Morehouse School of Medicine.

In 2018, Judge Mathis proved his passion for public service when he organized a caravan from Detroit to Flint, Mich., where he led a rally challenging Flint city officials to fix the water pipes. He then delivered 10,000 bottles of water carried by 18-wheeler trucks to the people affected by the ongoing crisis. He campaigned extensively to get the word out for the cause, appearing on national and local programs such as The View and Detroit’s Michigan Matters.

In his efforts to reach out to youth and ex-offenders both in and outside of the courtroom, Judge Mathis opened the Mathis Community Center in Detroit and has assisted thousands of youth with his non-profit agency Young Adults Asserting Themselves (Y.A.A.T.), an agency that provides career, business start-up and job opportunities, as well as job training and college enrollment assistance. In honor of his years of work and commitment to his hometown of Detroit, the city named one of the streets, Mathis Avenue, after him. The street is part of a new housing development, which replaced the housing projects he grew up in.

Judge Mathis has received numerous awards and keys to the city from government officials and is the recipient of honorary doctorates from both Florida A&M University and Eastern Michigan University. He has been recognized for his efforts by numerous newspapers, magazines and television networks, and has appeared on such shows as The View, The Real, The Tonight Show, Today and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In May 2022, Judge Mathis will be awarded a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, an honor bestowed on luminaries of the entertainment industry. He is also executive producer of the BET+ series American Gangster: Trap Queens.

Judge Mathis is married, and the proud father of four children, and two adorable granddaughters.

Linda was raised in Detroit and the surrounding suburbs of Oak Park, Mich., along with her two sisters and grew up with a very loving and close-knit family that always spent quality time together. She graduated from Oak Park High School and followed her sister to Eastern Michigan University. While in college majoring in education, Linda met Greg and their four-year courtship continued throughout college. After graduation, Linda and Greg got engaged and married. They raised their family in the suburbs of Detroit, where Linda pursued her career as a teacher with the Board of Education, and a few years later she opened several educational centers.

In 2005, Linda and Greg had several goals and decided to relocate to Los Angeles with younger sons Greg Jr. and Amir while daughters Jade and Camara were in college. As the matriarch of the Mathis family, Linda transitioned her career to dedicate all her time to focusing on the children, household and family life. As their kids grew into adults, Linda found a new passion and created She Social with Camara.

Camara has been practicing law for nine years as a business and legal affairs executive.

In addition to nurturing her family, Camara is also passionate about uplifting and nurturing other women. That passion inspired Camara, alongside her mother, to create She Social, an event that unites women from different backgrounds to network, grow together, support each other and celebrate sisterhood.

Camara is a boss in every sense of the word, as she is a wife and mother to two beautiful daughters — 5-year-old Nora and 8-month-old Zara. When she’s not managing her family’s real estate ventures and bringing them together for game night, Camara is committed to a lifetime of continuous learning and loves traveling the world with her husband and children.

Amir Mathis

Amir Mathis is the youngest of the Mathis kids and is often referred to as “the baby” and free spirit of the family.

Growing up in the entertainment industry, he recognized from an early age that he wanted to be a producer. He got his start in television working as a production assistant on his dad’s show and has since worked on multiple Emmy Award-nominated shows. After more than 10 years in the industry, he recently started his own production company and is an executive producer.
