STATEMENT OF ARTHUR E. BALBIRER, PRESIDENT, AMERICAN ACADEMY OF MATRIMONIAL LAWYERS, REGARDING NEW NEW YORK STATE RULES CONCERNING DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS

 NEW YORK, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers believes the recent rules promulgated by the New York Court of Appeals on the whole are a positive step in the governance of divorce proceedings.
 The new rules incorporate and make mandatory for the entire matrimonial bar much of the thinking contained in the Academy's own ethical standards -- The Bounds of Advocacy.
 These standards include the prohibition on sexual relations with clients, written fee agreements and periodic statements of accrued fees and costs.
 We also believe the new rules are appropriate for the entire legal profession and shouldn't be limited to just the matrimonial bar.
 The new rules can provide guidance and confidence in the legal system to those undergoing the traumatic experience of divorce.
 The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers is composed of the nation's top 1,300 matrimonial attorneys who are recognized experts in the specialized field of matrimonial law, including divorce, prenuptial agreements, legal separation, annulment, custody, property valuation and support.
