Chapter: Arizona

The Arizona Chapter of the AAML welcomes you!

The members of the Arizona Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers invites you to explore all that we have to offer.

The Arizona Chapter of AAML currently consists of 36 of the top-rated family law practitioners in the State of Arizona. In order to be considered for membership in the Chapter, an attorney must first be certified by the Arizona State Bar as meeting the high qualifications of an experienced, high-level attorney specializing in family law. Potential members must then meet the rigorous vetting process of the National Organization of the Academy before being honored with a fellowship in the Chapter. At present, the membership of the Arizona Chapter represents the top tier of practicing family law attorneys in the State with the lion’s share of the professional achievement awards and accolades that are acknowledged each year among the profession – both nationally and locally.

The Chapter takes to heart its role in providing justice in the family law arena to those who feel forsaken or left behind by the process and/or the legal system. The Chapter devotes itself to improving the law related to both healthy and dysfunctional families through legislation and appellate Court decisions. The Chapter is also dedicated to promoting the highest degree of professionalism and excellence in practicing family law through its continuing legal education courses, seminars, trial colleges, mentorship programs, and scholarships.
