Established in 1984
The Society of Family Lawyers (SOFL) is a professional group of family attorneys whose mission is to discuss and share information about the latest in family law. We are open to all attorneys who are interested; no complicated application or sponsorship is required. Our meetings are generally held each month at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee, WI. Our noon meetings typically feature a quality presentation by a guest speaker on a topic of interest to family lawyers. CLE credit is granted for nearly all presentations.
The Society of Family Lawyers was founded in 1984 by local Milwaukee attorneys Mark J. Ratke and Gregg M. Herman. Mark and Gregg formed the group to create a forum for family law attorneys to meet monthly to discuss and exchange information, without the prerequisites of more formal groups. The first meetings took place at the Ambassador Hotel in Milwaukee, with six members in attendance.
