The Southern California Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML), a national organization dedicated to improving the practice of law and the administration of justice in the area of divorce and family law, honored esteemed Judge Scott M. Gordon, of the Los Angeles Superior Court who is presiding over the divorce case of Los Angeles Dodgers owners Frank and Jamie McCourt; Judge James L.

Designed for family law specialists and practitioners, the Institute featured a range of legal experts covering cutting-edge topics in family law, such as the effective utilization of electronic evidence at trial and parentage and non-parent custody rights in the age of modern technology.

“We are proud to honor three pillars of matrimonial law,” said event Chair Emily Edelman, of Emily Shappell Edelman Law Office, who is also a Board member of the AAML Southern California Chapter.
