Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal attorney Bruce Friedman has been admitted to the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Membership in the IAML is by invitation only and Bruce is the only member of the IAML in Missouri. Since 1986, the IAML has grown steadily, both in terms of the countries represented and in terms of the overall membership. The Academy currently has three regional organizations, or chapters: a US Chapter with over 270 fellows from 34 states; a European Chapter with over 210 fellows from 25 different countries; and a Canadian chapter with over 40 fellows. Over 90 Academy fellows practice outside the USA, Europe, and Canada, namely in Argentina, Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Brazil, Chile, Dominican Republic, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Africa. The Academy enables fellows handling international family law to obtain legal assistance of the highest caliber in another country. A number of governments and other professional bodies are also now using the Academy membership list to locate experienced family law practitioners throughout the world.
