FAMILY LAW SECTION:  ANNUAL REPORT 2016-2017

We have had a good year and have enjoyed the education shared with us from the below list of professionals.  Following you will find the schedule of speakers for the 2016/2017 season.  We will be working on scheduling speakers for the 2017/2018 luncheons. 

The Family Law Section continues allowing paralegals to dial into the monthly luncheons to listen to the speakers.  Each month we have anywhere from 1 – 4 paralegals dial into the meeting.  Our attendance ranges from 10 – 18 paralegals per month. 

Congratulations to Susan Raiser, Lass Moses & Ramp LLC, who will be retiring in June, 2017.  Please join me in thanking Susan for all of her hard work and efforts that kept the Family Law Section going strong for several years.  Good luck Susan!  We will miss you!

Thank you to Cathy Butler, Litvak, Litvak, Mehrtens & Carlton P.C., for accepting the challenge as co-chairperson of the Family Law Section.  Please help me welcome Cathy!
