AAML Annual Meeting 2021

Doylestown, PA – Jeffrey M. Williams, founding partner of Williams Family Law in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, recently spoke at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) in Chicago, IL. As part of a panel of nationally recognized leaders in the matrimonial field, he participated in a program entitled, “A Snapshot of COVID-19 Government Assistance Programs,” sharing his perspective of the pandemic on divorce, custody, and related family law matters in the context of when public monies are involved, such as PPP loans, disaster funds and tax credits.

Fellow panelists included Philadelphia forensic accountant and business valuation expert Gregory Cowhey, principal of RSM US, LLP, and Alyssa Mogul, a family law attorney with Grund & Leavitt in Chicago.

The AAML was founded in Chicago in 1962 to foster professionalism and excellence in the practice of family law. Members collaborate with lawyers, legislators, judges, agencies, and professionals to improve the standards and processes of resolving conflicts involving child support, divorce, custody, and juvenile matters. Membership in AAML requires significant experience in family law practice and is a highly selective process.
