Family Lawyer Magazine‘s reputation is built on high-quality content from a wide range of top professionals. We always welcome submissions from family law attorneys, judges, mediators, financial analysts, business and custody valuators, therapists, and other divorce professionals. Your content can be in the form of an article, podcast, video, or even infographic. Check out our roster of contributing writers here.

Please submit to: editors@FamilyLawyerMagazine.com.

NOTE: We do not guarantee publication of any submission, and all are subject to approval and editing.

“Practice Management” is the theme we are working on for the Winter 2017 issue of Family Lawyer Magazine.

Our next issue will have a special focus on Practice Management, and we are looking for high-quality content from top family lawyers and divorce-industry professionals like yourself. We welcome proposals for articles addressing the following subjects:

  • Practice management
  • Running your firm efficiently
  • Hiring and firing associates and staff
  • Keeping up with the latest technology
  • Business valuation issues
  • Gathering and presenting evidence
  • Marketing your practice
  • Client relations
  • Courtroom strategies
  • Legal issues
  • Alternative dispute resolution
  • Tax tips: divorce-related updates, opportunities, and traps
  • Military divorce
  • Health and well-being

All articles/proposals should be geared towards your fellow professionals – not towards divorcing people. As such, you are encouraged to address relatively advanced and/or niche topics; you should assume readers have a solid grasp of family law basics, and some have been practicing for many years. Readers include 34,000+ family lawyers, judges, divorce mediators and arbitrators, accountants, business valuators, and CDFA professionals.

We are also accepting submissions for our popular column “What Family Lawyers Need to Know.” This consists of 150-word tips from divorce-industry professionals to help lawyers serve their clients and grow their practices. To see examples, click here:
