From the 2016 President

Welcome to the website for the Northern California Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). The Northern California Chapter is one on the longest standing and most active chapters in the AAML. Our Fellows have served the AAML as President of the national academy, as national governors, as editors of the AAML Journal, and as members of numerous national committees. In California our Fellows serve as leaders in the State Bar and county bar associations across Northern California. We testify before the California Legislature regarding new laws, and we contribute legal briefs on important family law cases to California’s Courts of Appeal and Supreme Court. The members of our chapter are thought leaders at the State and National levels of family law.

To be represented by an Academy Fellow is to be represented by one of the most qualified and respected family law lawyers in the United States. To be a Fellow in the AAML is to have earned a position at the forefront of the family law bar, and as a leader in family law practice.

Please take your time visiting our website. You will find comprehensive biographical information on each of our Northern California Fellows. You will learn more about the AAML. You will be exposed to the significant continuing legal education programs that we sponsor, as well as our extensive community outreach and charitable contributions history.

Thank you again for learning more about the Northern California Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. It is our privilege to be at your service.
