Message From the Chair
– Joe Indelicato, Jr.


Wow, where did 2022 go? It seems it went by in a blink of an eye.

As we wrap up the year and prepare for the holidays, I hope that everyone takes some time to spend with family and friends. I know this is easier said than done. Make some time to be with your family and friends. Take a break from the office, it will all be there waiting for you. As we all know, family and friends are important and we all need some down time.

I would like to take a moment to thank all that volunteered their time to make the Family Law Section what it is. I am so proud of all of you that have volunteered your time and talent to make the Family Law Section, the best section in the State Bar (my opinion). It is a team effort and we on the executive committee do not forget that. Thank you.

If you are interested in getting involved and volunteering your time, contact a Family Law Section member and see how you can get involved.

The Family Law Section continues to produce some of the best and useful publications to help its members in the practice of law. Some of the best and brightest family law attorneys in the state have volunteered their time to produce these publications. Visit the section website,, and view the numerous publications that can assist your practice and make your life easier.
