Members are focused on complex family law and matrimonial matters both domestically and internationally. The ACFTL brings together many of the top family law attorneys in the United States.

Diplomates in the American College of Family Trial Lawyers are also involved in continuing education through speaking at seminars and participating in interactive sessions that promote excellence in the practice of divorce and family law.
