The AICPA/AAML National Conference on Divorce was successfully attended and full of offerings for family law attorneys and other divorce professionals.
The National Conference on Divorce took place on April 24-25 in Las Vegas, at the Bellagio Hotel. Attended by over 470 participants, speakers and exhibitors, the attendance level surpassed previous years’ conferences by almost 40%. Family Lawyer Magazine/Divorce Marketing Group are pleased with these results, as were engaged by the organizers (AICPA and AAML) to increase family lawyer registration and participation. Both CLE and CPE credits were available.
Great Sessions and Speakers
The topics and the speakers at the Conference were diverse and informative. At times there were 3 tracks of various sessions taking place simultaneously. There was no shortage of sessions for participants to choose from. In total there were 33 sessions, a lot of them co-presented by financial experts and a family law attorneys. Topics included, business valuation, goodwill for professional athletes and celebrities, executive compensation, hidden marital assets, the use of expert witnesses, lifestyle analysis, protecting a business owner’s dilutable interest, and divorce tax traps. Our Publisher and CEO, Dan Couvrette presented the only marketing session on the seven threats that family law firms face, and the 20 Strategies to overcome and grow their practice.
Great Conference Exhibitors
Along with Divorce Marketing Group/Family Lawyer Magazine/Divorce Magazine, there were a dozen other exhibitors. These exhibitors offered an interesting range of products and services to family law attorneys and divorce financial experts. One particular new exhibitor worth mentioning is Family ValueGuard, an insurance plan that ensures child and spousal support payments will not be disrupted due to unexpected disability by the payor. Any family lawyer or divorce financial planner who deals with child support and spousal payments, especially with high net worth individuals, will want to recommend this to their clients.
