The practice of Family Law is
challenging and involves decision-making on many different levels. One
prominent part of the ACFLS mission statement is to encourage ethical behavior
among Family Law Specialists and other members of the bar.
Family Law Specialists understand that their ability to successfully practice
law is only as good as their reputation for ethical practice.
The ethical rules applicable to
California lawyers are found in the Rules of Professional Conduct. These rules
may be found at the following link: http://rules.calbar.ca.gov/Rules/RulesofProfessionalConduct/CurrentRules.aspx
