ORLANDO, Fla., March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The CFL™ designation has taken Orlando by storm with the recent launch of the American Academy for Certified Financial Litigators (AACFL) Orlando Chapter in January of 2021. The AACFL is proud to announce the creation of this chapter and applauds the commitment of its Founding Members. The organization's mission is to solve a growing problem in the divorce world – a rapidly changing economy and client demand for financially savvy attorneys.
It makes sense that this demand has grown in the divorce world. A common path for attorneys is to study liberal arts at the undergraduate level, then to go to law school, and then to be advocating for their clients' financial future without any formal financial training. The mission of this group is to fix that problem because of how complex today's financial economy has become. A solid understanding of the financial fundamentals taught in the CFL™ Training course can make the difference between an attorney's client struggling after their divorce and the client being able to start the next chapter of their life with more financial security for their family. While years of experience as a divorce attorney is undoubtedly valuable, imagine the power and benefit to clients of combining that legal knowledge with enhanced financial skills!
An additional goal for the group is to raise the level of financial knowledge in the family law community, freeing up the judge's schedules from having to deal with these matters. This will allow judges to spend more time on areas such as domestic abuse, custody problems, and other important, non-financial, family matters. The organization believes that this is a goal that society would benefit from greatly.
The uniqueness of the CFL™ designation and training program is that it was developed by nationally recognized financial firms, financial experts, attorneys and judges who believe in the mission. To create public confidence, the CFL™ designation is only awarded to members of the AACFL who have taken the time to study and receive a passing grade on an objective, comprehensive exam covering these concepts. Not all divorce lawyers would make the commitment of time and effort to obtain and prove their knowledge in these areas. The AACFL seeks to publicly recognize the dedication of their members.
Stay tuned for our next press release announcing the final group of founding members before that status closes and the Orlando Chapter website created for the public to have an easy way to identify current and future members and those who have earned the CFL designation!
The AACFL is hopeful that this trend will continue in Central Florida and that its mission of helping the public and the court system will be achieved through the dedication of its members. Currently, the Founding Membership represents some of the finest divorce attorneys and firms in Orlando. The organization has been growing rapidly and currently has membership in over 20 metropolitan areas. Congratulations to the following Orlando Advisory Board and Founding Members!
