CALABASAS, Calif., Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Family Law Attorney Maya Shulman, known for her expertise in interstate and international family law, today announced her 5th consecutive designation as a Southern California Super Lawyer. This honor is reserved for lawyers who exhibit excellence in their practice; only 5% of all attorneys in Southern California receive this distinction. Attorney Shulman, founder and principal attorney of Shulman Family Law Group with offices in Calabasas and Santa Barbara, is an AV® Preeminent – rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell and a member of AV Preeminent Bar Register of Preeminent Women Lawyers.

Maya Shulman has extensive state-specific knowledge of custodial law regarding family formations, dissolutions, and surrogacy and adoption matters, having just recently published the article, “Interstate and Intercountry Divorce Practices,” which describes the legal hurdles couples with children can encounter when families come apart in today’s increasingly mobile worldwide culture.

“In a world that that is constantly changing and moving,” says Attorney Shulman, “where people routinely cross state and international borders for business or pleasure, family law has become increasingly complicated. When divorce and child custody matters enter into that mix, it’s important to have an attorney with the right amount of experience in this very complicated area that involves both cultural and legal know-how. Whether they are adopting, divorcing, or encountering an issue that is impacting their family or children, the Shulman Family Law Group can provide invaluable experience.

“Our expertise is in addressing issues for couples who have one party residing in California, regardless of where the other partner may be living. Our clients come from diverse world locations, including Russia, Iran, the UK, Australia, Israel and Italy, and domestically, in Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, Nevada, Oregon and Texas. When dealing with intercountry and interstate family law matters, it’s integral to have an attorney that has the ability to work effectively in cross-cultural law to ensure that children don’t get left behind in foreign countries and that assets get divided according to California Law.”

Attorney Shulman also represents clients in surrogacy and adoption matters, which has grown in popularity due to improvements in assisted reproduction technologies (ART), with many high profile celebrities recently adopting internationally as well as hiring surrogates for their pregnancies. With her keen understanding of cultural etiquette and interstate/intercountry family law codes, she is able to draft documents protecting the rights of both the intended parents and the surrogates. Additionally, her extensive global network of family law experts and professionals help to efficiently manage long processes according to needs, jurisdictions and geographies of those involved.

In addition to being a five-time Southern California Super Lawyer, Attorney Shulman also earned the designation of “Southern California Rising Star” family law attorney, from 2004 – 2005 and 2007 – 2010 and has earned Los Angeles Magazine’s honor of “Top Woman Super Lawyer,” since 2014.

Attorney Shulman is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the Ventura County Bar Association, the San Fernando County Bar Association, the Bar of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the American Bar Association, where she is a Family Law Section member. She is also a member of the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists and the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.
