Attorneys who are selected to the 10 Best list must pass AIOFLA’s selection process, which is based on client and/or peer nominations, thorough research, and AIOFLA’s independent evaluation.

AIOFLA’s annual list was created to be used as a resource for clients during the attorney selection process, a release states.

One of the aspects of the selection process involves attorneys’ relationships and reputation among his or her clients. As clients should be an attorney’s top priority,

AIOFLA places the utmost emphasis on selecting lawyers who have achieved significant success in the field of Family Law without sacrificing the service and support they provide.

Selection criteria therefore focus on attorneys who demonstrate the highest standards of Client Satisfaction.
