American Institute of Family Law Attorneys

AMERICAN INSTITUTE of FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYS: The American Institute’s Family Law Division recognizes excellence of practitioners in the field. We compile an exclusive list of the “10 Best” Attorneys for each State. Some States depending on size and population density may be broken up into City or Region to be more applicable to potential new clients who utilize this site when looking for an Attorney. The “10 Best” is a prestigious honor for the Attorney as each Attorney must:

  • Be formally nominated by the Institute, client, and/or a fellow Attorney;
  • Have attained the highest degree of professional achievement in his or her field of law; and
  • Having done so with an impeccable Client Satisfaction rating.

Many Attorneys can achieve high degrees of success but this is often times at the expense or satisfaction of the most important person in the case- the client. American Institute’s Family Law Division looks for Attorneys that have achieved unparalleled success but most importantly have done so for the benefit of their client. Very few Attorneys can do so and our organization recognizes this significant achievement.

Our rating system helps clients throughout the United States make educated decisions when it comes to choosing their attorney. Membership is an exclusive honor and extended only to those selected few who have reached the top of their profession while doing so with the client’s satisfaction being of the most paramount importance.

William J. Larkin, III and Milana Tepermayster have both been selected as Top 10 Best Family Law Attorneys in New York for Client Satisfaction.
