Jeralyn Lawrence Installed as President-Elect of the New Jersey Chapter of AAML

Today, Jeralyn Lawrence, founder and Managing Partner of Lawrence Law, was installed, virtually, as President-Elect of the New Jersey Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. She previously served as First Vice President of the New Jersey Chapter of AAML, as well as in other positions in the Academy.

Lawrence says, “I am excited to work with the members of the Academy to address some of the most pressing issues facing the practice of family law. For example, the effects the COVID-19 pandemic has on divorce cases with support and custody and parenting time issues. I also look forward to weighing in on legislation that will shape family law in the future.”

The New Jersey chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (“AAML”) is the local chapter of a national group of lawyers who practice divorce and family law. The mission of the AAML is to provide leadership that promotes the highest degree of professionalism and excellence in the practice of family law. Fellows of the Academy concentrate their practices in family and matrimonial law, a specialty that involves all aspects of pre-marriage counseling and agreements, legal separation, divorce, annulment, unmarried cohabitation, child custody, property valuation and division, and support. Each Fellow must demonstrate by personal conduct a professional and ethical commitment to his or her clients and to the betterment of society in resolving what are often intensely emotional and complex family problems. Today, the Academy is recognized as the pre-eminent family law association in America with more than 1,500 Fellows.
