MADISON, WI – Rhonda Hazen, a partner in Boardman & Clark’s Family Law Practice Group, was recently named a fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (“AAML”).

Founded in 1962 by domestic relations attorneys, the mission of AAML is to provide leadership that promotes the highest degree of professionalism and excellence in the practice of family law. To earn fellowship in the AAML, an attorney must pass an oral interview with a state board of examiners as well as meet a strict set of membership criteria. These criteria include requirements for experience and legal education, a demonstrated dedication to the improvement of the area of family law, and recognition from the bench and the bar as a reputable family law practitioner. According to AAML, Academy Fellows across the United States are generally recognized by judges and attorneys as preeminent family law practitioners with a high level of knowledge, skill and integrity.

Rhonda has over 15 years of experience in the area of family law. She has represented clients in all areas of family law, including financial issues and child custody and physical placement matters. She has negotiated property, support and custody agreements and has litigated those matters in court trials and appeals. Rhonda is also experienced in the area of collaborative family law, where the focus is on helping parties reach agreements and avoid litigation, and has served as the Regional Chair (Dane County) of the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin since 2014.
