Family Practice Update 2023


Join the MSBA Family Law Section for a virtual presentation of its annual Family Practice Update, on Tuesday, August 8th, 2023 at 9 a.m. 

The speakers will address the impact of recent legislation on the practice of family law, including no-fault divorce, spousal sexual assault and child abduction. They will also discuss the most recent appellate cases impacting family law, including alimony, marital property/monetary awards, dissipation, tracing, business valuation, bigamy/annulment and laches, child custody, de facto parenthood and legal parents’ consent, third-party custody and awarding custody to a parent who murdered the other parent, doctrine of parent-child immunity, contempt, post-nuptial agreements and “lump sum” penalty provisions, attorneys’ fees, appeals, as well as other issues.  This CLE is always highly informative, well-attended, and the materials alone are essential to any family law practitioner.

Speakers: Maureen Glackin, Esq. and Paul Reinstein, Esq. of Reinstein, Glackin & Herriott, LLC; and Heather Sweren, Esq. of Brodsky Renehan Pearlstein & Bouquet, Chartered.

4.0 hours of CLE credit will be offered by the surrounding MCLE states of Virginia, Delaware and Pennsylvania.  If you miss the livestream, it will be recorded and available to purchase. You can pre-purchase the OnDemand program HERE
