West Family Law Group is delighted to announce that attorney Susan W. Savard has been chosen to be a part of the highly esteemed International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL). She will be joining Richard West, who has been a member of the IAFL for more than 10 years. This exclusive community of international attorneys is made up of individuals who have been recognized by their peers as the most proficient and accomplished specialists in family law in their respective nations.
Membership not only bestows a level of distinction but also a close connection with colleagues all over the world who can assist with international custody cases and other family law matters that stretch across international borders.
To be considered for a potential fellowship in the academy, attorneys must handle international family law cases as a significant portion of their practice and demonstrate a “high level of competence” in family law issues in the international arena. In addition, they must demonstrate that they have earned respect from peers in their jurisdiction for their skill and experience in family law matters. An international committee considers a prospective member’s body of work and peer reviews extensively before the academy decides which attorneys to invite for admission.
As Board Certified Specialists with decades of experience in Marital and Family Law, both Richard West and Susan Savard have considerable experience handling a wide range of complexities in family law matters. When divorce, custody, and adoption cases cross international lines, the team at West Family Law Group understands how to take advantage of the best available opportunities to protect clients’ interests and achieve their objectives.
For more information about the advantages afforded to the firm by their inclusion in the network of attorneys at the International Academy of Family Lawyers or if you need assistance with a matter involving international issues, contact West Family Law Group.
