Rita Aquilio Attends ABA’s Section of Litigation Winter Leadership Meeting

Rita Aquilio, a divorce and family law attorney with Lawrence Law, attended the American Bar Association’s Section of Litigation Winter Leadership Meeting on January 16-18, 2020, at the Loews Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida.

Aquilio attended the winter leadership meeting, an invitation-only event, as Co-Chair of the American Bar Association’s Section of Litigation Family Law Committee. The Section of Leadership’s mission is to help ABA’s leaders to become better leaders while further developing legal skills. The focus of the meeting was to continue to implement and build on the Annual Plans formulated at the Fall Leadership meetings in October 2019. Each committee presents monthly offerings to its membership, including webinars, Roundtables, CLE opportunities, newsletters and SoundAdvice podcasts. The Winter Leadership also included plenary programs, Welcome Remarks from the Mayor of Miami Beach, Section business reports, workshops and Council meetings.

After the meeting, Aquilio stated, “As a member of Leadership, meetings such as this are an important opportunity to gather with colleagues and make new connections. The Family Law Litigation Committee decided to collaborate with the Access to Justice Committee on a future Roundtable. This is an exciting development for our members, and for me as Co-Chair, as it expands our Committee’s network and resources.”

This Family Law Committee assists the litigator of domestic relations and family law disputes through the presentation of programs, forums for exchange of information, and regular communication on family law matters. A particular focus of the family law committee is on providing representation or assistance to unrepresented parties in family law matters, through pro se and pro bono efforts, and the role that individual practitioners and the bar can play in these efforts. The committee follows national developments in family law litigation and brings appropriate issues to the attention of the Section for its input and action.
