Sessums Black Attorneys Attend AAML Retreat

The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) Florida Chapter held its 2021 chapter retreat at Amelia Island Dec. 2 – 5. Sessums Black Shareholder Caroline Black Sikorske and Managing Partner Alex Caballero—both AAML fellows—attended the retreat with their spouses. The event included kayaking, biking and other outdoor activities, a continuing legal education seminar on stress and professionalism, holiday photos, nice meals and more.

Florida AAML members are qualified, ethical family law attorneys in Florida. Each attorney has advanced training, experience, and is operating under The Florida Bar’s most stringent ethical and professional standards known as the Bounds of Advocacy. Fewer than 100 family law attorneys in Florida currently meet the stringent requirements needed to become an AAML member—a testament to its rigorous technical and ethical vetting process.

Thank you to the AAML for hosting another very special retreat. ???? Credit: AAML – Florida Chapter.
