Last week, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) held its annual meeting at beautiful Renaissance Chicago Downtown hotel. The week-long event, attended by our own Senior Partner, Ben Stevens, consisted of meetings of the Executive Committee, as well as CLE seminars on topics relevant to the latest changes in tax issues, domestic violence, traumatic brain injuries, trial techniques, alimony, child custody, ethics, and technology's effect on the practice of family law.
As you may know, Ben Stevens has been serving on the Executive Committee in many capacities since 2015 when he was appointed as an Ex-Officio Member as the National Technology Coordinator and the Newsletter Co-Editor. We are proud to announce he has been elected and sworn-in at this year's meeting to a three-year term as a Vice-President.
"It is a tremendous honor to have been elected as a Vice President of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, and it is the high point of my professional career thus far. It is widely known that the Academy sets the standard for excellence in the practice of family law, and being chosen as part of its national leadership team is simultaneously exciting and humbling. A high bar has been set by the Academy's past leadership, and I look forward to working hard to uphold these standards going forward."
- Ben Stevens, Senior Partner
