The national staff is in place to service all Academy Fellows in all aspects and answer general inquiries from the public. While we are not able to offer any legal advice or provide a referral to those seeking a family law attorney, we can direct you to the Find a Lawyer page, where you can search in your area for family lawyers near you.
