A Message from the Committee Chair:

Welcome to the CBA Family Law Committee Homepage. Our Committee will typically meet the 2nd Monday of each month, at noon in the CBA Offices, located on the 11th floor of 175 S. 3rd Street. We encourage members, both new and old, to stop in for our monthly programming. Our goal is to provide you with relevant updates and information in the Family Law practice area by providing a wide array of presenters and informational materials. I believe that in order to offer the best legal services to clients, attorneys should share their experiences, good and not-so-good, discover best practices, engage with fellow members, and become apprised of the newest state and local laws affecting our practice area. Columbus is a fantastic city in which to work and live, and the CBA Family Law Committee strives to offer a sense of community and support as we navigate our practices in this ever-changing and dynamic area of the law. All are welcome. See you at the meetings!
