Here, seasoned professionals in the family law arena share their best practice-management and client-relations advice, read about new technology and financial issues, and learn how to grow their firms.


About Family Lawyer Magazine‘s Publisher


Divorce Marketing Group

Both magazine and website are owned and published by Divorce Marketing Group, the only agency dedicated exclusively to marketing family lawyers and other divorce professionals. We understand the divorce market better than any other firm because we’ve been serving the needs of divorcing people and family lawyers exclusively since 1996. We help divorce professionals grow their practice by reaching divorcing people with innovative and effective marketing programs. It is from this base of divorce knowledge (both from a “lay” and “lawyer” perspective), and by reaching out to our professional contacts who work with divorcing people and family lawyers (financial professionals, mental health professionals, etc.) for their editorial input that we have created the “go to” media for family lawyers: Marketing Guide for Family Lawyers, FamilyLawyerMagazine.com, Family Lawyer Magazine eNewsletter, and Family Lawyer Magazine.

Divorce Marketing Group also owns DivorceMag.com (launched in 1996) and DivorcedMoms.com (launched in 2013). Together, these websites receive 4 million visits a year from individuals who are looking for help before, during, and after divorce.

Since 1996, Divorce Marketing Group has developed an intimate knowledge of what makes a family law firm successful.  Through FamilyLawyerMagazine.com, the Family Lawyer Magazine eNewsletter, and Family Lawyer Magazine, we share knowledge with our family lawyer readers and visitors so that they can do a better job of building successful practices – and ultimately, better serve the needs of their divorcing clients. Readers reap the benefits of the accumulated wisdom of some of the most successful and well-respected family lawyers and financial and mental health professionals in North America – as well as our own deep knowledge and experience serving this niche.
