a small group of nationally known matrimonial lawyers met to
discuss the need to humanize and dignify the most traumatic
area of family relations. As a result, the American Academy
of Matrimonial Lawyers was founded to improve the practice
of law and the administration of justice in the area of divorce
and family law.
Academy was formed..."To encourage the study, improve the practice,
elevate the standards and advance the cause of matrimonial
law to the end that the welfare of the family and society be
preserved." Today, the Academy is recognized as the pre-eminent
family law association in America with more than 1,600 Fellows.
