Two MI Partners Named AAML Fellows

McKinley Irvin is proud to announce that partners Mark Arend and Brent Bohan are now fellows of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML).

Established in 1962, the AAML is dedicated to fostering leadership that upholds the highest standards of professionalism and excellence within the practice of family law.

Academy Fellows are selected based on their proficiency in negotiating and litigating matrimonial and family law matters, as well as their recognition among judges and peers as leading practitioners. Fellowship is by invitation and reserved for attorneys who meet a comprehensive set of criteria and successfully navigate a rigorous examination process.

“Mark and Brent’s admission into this prestigious academy is a recognition of the excellent work they deliver to their clients,” says Rita Irvin, Founder and CEO of McKinley Irvin. “We congratulate them on this significant accomplishment.”

There are only 26 fellows in the Washington Chapter of the AAML, seven of whom are McKinley Irvin attorneys.
