Founded in 1962, the AAML is a national group of leaders in the practice area of domestic relations law. With 50 chapters and 1,600 Fellows nationally, it attracts preeminent family law practitioners across the country. A fellow with the AAML and formerly the chapter’s president-elect, Williams was elected president at the organization’s summer meeting in July.
“Family Law in Pennsylvania continues to evolve and the AAML is committed to ensuring that the law is developed and implemented with integrity and empathy,” said Williams. “I am proud to lead the AAML Pennsylvania chapter and the pre-eminent family law practitioners of which it is comprised, and I thank my colleagues for this great honor.”
To become a fellow of the AAML, an attorney must be highly skilled in the practice areas of divorce, drafting of marital settlement agreements, child custody and visitation, business valuation, property valuation and division, alimony, litigation, child support and other complex family law matters.
