(St. Louis,MO) – Alan N. Zvibleman, shareholder in Capes, Sokol, Goodman & Sarachan, P.C., has been designated and elected as a Fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). The AAML is a highly prestigious and selective organization with 1,600 members in 50 states. Zvibleman joins just 11 other Fellows in St. Louis and 33 Fellows in the state of Missouri.
“This is quite an accomplishment and required an extensive application process and considerable effort on Zvibleman’s part,“ states Dan Sokol, partner, shareholder and chair of the Family Practice Area at Capes Sokol.
The AAML states that Fellows are highly skilled negotiators and litigators who represent individuals in all facets of family law. These areas include divorce, annulment, prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, marital settlement agreements, child custody and visitation, business valuations, property valuations and division, alimony, child support and other family law issues. To be represented by a Fellow is to be represented by a leading practitioner in the field of family law. AAML Fellows across the United States are generally recognized by judges and attorneys as preeminent family law practitioners with a high level of knowledge, skill and integrity.
Zvibleman was admitted to the Missouri Bar in 1979, and the majority of his work is focused on family law, including dissolutions of marriage, custody, and modifications.

He is one of the original members of the Collaborative Family Law Association, comprised of family law attorneys, mental health professionals, and financial advisors.
