Chapter: Maryland

The Maryland Chapter of the AAML welcomes you!


A warm welcome from the Maryland Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. 

Our Chapter represents Maryland’s’ preeminent and most accomplished leaders in the field of family law. Members of the Maryland Chapter are totally committed to the Academy’s mission: “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 protected.”

Family law is both dynamic and complex. A competent family law attorney must know not only the state divorce laws but also state and federal laws in related fields such as tax, property, estates, retirement and insurance. No area of the law has a greater enduring impact on client lives than that of family law. Representation by an AAML Fellow is representation by one of the most qualified family law attorneys in the country.
