Lawrence Law Expands Presence on Family Law Section Executive Committee

 

Attorneys Jeralyn Lawrence, Rita Aquilio, Amy Wechsler, and Amy Shimalla were recently reappointed to the Family Law Section Executive Committee (FLEC) of the New Jersey State Bar Association.

The Family Law Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association maintains and improves the practice of family law through effective interaction with the family courts and by informing members of current legislation and regulations.

While serving on the Executive Committee, the women will retain membership on subcommittees concerning the operations of the Family Law Section and substantive areas of law. Additionally, each will commit to the regular review of committee reports and legislation, in an effort to advocate for legislation concerning family law consistent with the official position adopted by the NJSBA Board of Trustees.
