In 1962, 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.
The 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 1,500 Fellows.
Fellowship in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers represents both a recognition of achievements in family law and a commitment to the highest standards of practice in the field.
