NOTE: Before reaching out to us with a story pitch, please read our Guidelines for Submitting Articles to Family Lawyer Magazine.

We invite submissions from family lawyers, judges, arbitrators, mediators, financial experts, mental-health professionals. Relevant content from technology, software, and practice management experts is also welcome.

Your content can be in the form of an article, podcast, video, or even infographic. If accepted, we will promote your article via our bi-monthly Family Lawyer Magazine eNewsletter and on our Facebook Page.

We welcome content that can help family lawyers attract quality clients (and offer better service to those clients), manage their practices more efficiently, learn about financial tips and traps, and discover new technology and trends.

Your submission may be considered for publication in the print Family Lawyer Magazine, depending upon our editorial needs. We will contact you if this is the case.

All articles/proposals should be geared towards your fellow professionalsnot 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.
