Sharing Best Practices in Family Law

Walzer Welcher LLP for over 25 years has been committed to improving the practice of family law. Our top family law attorneys have been innovators in areas such as premarital and post-marital agreements.  Our practice focus has taken us into many complex specialties such as international family law and custody litigation, and asset valuation and distribution for high net worth clients. Our top family law attorneys are frequent guest lecturers at local bar associations, lawyer organizations, continuing legal education and law schools, and partner organizations like business evaluators and CPAs. We provide MCLE/CLE courses, lectures on best practices for family law issues, as well as deep analysis on relevant appellate decisions and cases.  Join us for a seminar soon.
