Syracuse, NY - April 12, 2012 - Bousquet Holstein PLLC (formerly known as Green & Seifter, Attorneys) is pleased to announce that Steven A. Paquette, Esq., a member of the firm, has been accepted as a Certified Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. He is one of only 30 attorneys in Upstate New York and one of only four attorneys in Central New York to be recognized with this distinction.
Certified Fellows must demonstrate the highest professional and ethical standards, and are admitted after thorough peer evaluation and passage of rigorous testing designed to ensure expert knowledge of substantive family law.
Paquette is an experienced litigator and brings 31 years of courtroom experience to seek fair and reasoned solutions to client problems. His current practice involves successfully navigating sophisticated divorce and family law matters to a successful conclusion using both Collaborative Law Practice techniques wherever possible, and traditional litigation models where necessary. Paquette was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the Central New York Collaborative Family Law Professionals.
Steven is able to handle complex matters relating to custody and support of children, property division and alimony or spousal support. He is recognized by the bench and bar as a leading practitioner in the area of matrimonial law, and has demonstrated an active interest and competency in matrimonial law as evidenced by the fulfillment of criteria and standards as established by the AAML Board of Examiners and Board of Governors.
Founded in 1962, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers was formed to improve the practice of law in the complex, and often highly charged, area of divorce and family law. The Academy’s mission, for over 40 years, remains: "To encourage the study, improve the practice, elevate the standards and advance the cause of matrimonial law to the end that the welfare of the family and society be preserved." This mission continues to fulfill a central need in America’s continually evolving family and societal norms. The Academy’s national organizations, and its thirty- three state chapters, conduct local, statewide and national seminars and programs to advance the knowledge of family law and improve the practice of matrimonial law in each locality.
