Leaders in Family Law

Academy Fellows are highly skilled and sophisticated negotiators and litigators who help their clients in every aspect of family and matrimonial law. Fellows teach, lecture, and write in the field of family law. Fellows are routinely called upon to assist the General Assembly in crafting legislation and offering testimony in support of and sometimes in opposition to draft bills on topics of family law so that the needs of all Pennsylvanians can be better served. Fellows are also leaders in their local communities, where many serve as volunteers and board members for nonprofit and religious organizations that promote the public good. Fellows also have a long tradition of serving in leadership positions in the Pennsylvania Bar Association, specifically its Board of Governors and its Family Law Section. Several Pennsylvania Fellows are leaders in the American Bar Association’s Family Law Section. Read more
