What is the AICPA/AAML National Divorce Conference?

The AICPA/AAML National Divorce Conference is a joint project of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. The conference was conceived as a forum to provide the most advanced, highest-level continuing education (CPE) and continuing legal education (CLE) on complex financial and divorce litigation-related issues common to divorce lawyers, accounting professionals, business appraisers, consultants, and others. The conference is intended to provide a dual perspective on a broad range of divorce-related issues.

How does this conference differ from other family law conferences?

What makes the AICPA/AAML National Divorce Conference unique is that it is geared towards lawyers, CPAs, business valuators, and other financial professionals who work in divorce-related fields. Divorce lawyers work closely with these professionals in their divorce cases on a routine basis. This conference provides useful, cutting-edge information on multiple advanced topics. Many of the speakers are nationally-recognized divorce lawyers and accounting, financial, or business valuation professionals who have been paired to provide a comprehensive, dual perspective on the issues. This conference also provides a national venue for networking between legal and accounting professionals who share common interests in divorce-related fields.

Who would you recommend attend this conference?

The National Divorce Conference is the most prestigious, advanced, substantive conference for divorce lawyers, accounting professionals, consultants, business appraisers and others whose practices involve divorce-related matters and whose cases frequently involve clients with substantial wealth and financially complex marital estates facing potential divorce litigation. The conference offers presentations on advanced financial issues in divorce, and litigation issues common to both divorce lawyers and financial professionals. The conference is heavy on substantive take-away information and tools that lawyers and financial professionals can use in their daily practices.

This is an opportunity for accounting and financial professionals to make contact with the divorce lawyers who make the decisions in their firms regarding hiring of these professionals – and the place for divorce lawyers to connect with the best financial and business valuation professionals. The quality, experience, and expertise of the accounting and business valuation professionals is of major importance to divorce lawyers. The National Divorce Conference is the best place to meet the practitioners in the field.
