Does your family law firm have a conflict management system?  Does your firm’s conflict system effectively manage your time and keep you in compliance with your jurisdiction’s rules of professional responsibility?

What is it?

They say the only things in life that are certain are death and taxes.  A close third on that list is hosting family holiday gatherings. How, you say, can family gatherings be compared to death and taxes?  I used to think the same thing ... until I started to host them myself.  It was only after my first efforts at hosting that I could understand why my Sister-In-Law said she would get anxious in September thinking about the holidays yet to come.  It also elevated my Mother, who still does Christmas Day dinner, to the status of an unparalleled Domestic Goddess.

Throughout the year, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers Foundation raises monies for grants to sponsor worthy programs to educate the public, Judges, and attorneys about various aspects of Family Law. The Foundation also promotes funding for pro bono and low cost Family Law legal representation and ancillary mental health services for indigent clients with special emphasis on abused spouses and children.
