Partner Robert J. Salzer of Williams Family Law has been appointed a fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML), an honor reserved solely for skilled negotiators and experienced litigators who represent individuals in all facets of family law.

With his selection, Salzer joins firm founder and managing partner Jeffrey M. Williams in holding this desired national designation. Williams Family Law is now the only law firm in Bucks County with two AAML fellows.

Membership in AAML is a highly selective process with just about 1,600 fellows nationwide. Attorneys must be admitted to the bar for at least 10 years and practice almost exclusively in matrimonial law. They also must complete a specified amount of continuing legal education credits in each of the previous five years and pass an exam on matrimonial and family law. The process includes an interview by a state board of examiners or matrimonial law practitioners. Finally, they must be known for having a sincere commitment to ethical standards and demonstrate thought leadership in matrimonial law, such as in publishing articles or teaching at CLE events.

An experienced trial attorney, Salzer focuses his practice on financially complex, high net worth family law matters including alimony/spousal support, divorce, equitable distribution, marital agreements, child support, child custody and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. He is a co-author of “Stress-Free Divorce,” a book designed to help anyone considering or in the midst of a divorce identify and overcome common obstacles to as smooth a resolution as possible.
