EAST HANOVER, N.J., January 12, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Flavio Van Boekel, Owner & Founder, Van Boekel Law Firm, LLC, has joined The Expert Network, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Mr. Van Boekel has been chosen as a Distinguished Lawyer based on peer reviews and ratings, dozens of recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout his career.
Mr. Van Boekel outshines others in his field due to his extensive educational background, numerous awards and recognitions, and career longevity. Mr. Van Boekel began his law career as a paralegal, a role he served in for over a decade. Wanting to expand his practice, he enrolled at Michigan State College of Law where he earned his JD, cum laude, in 2009. While in law school, Mr. Van Boekel clerked for the then Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm as well as interned for the Attorney Grievance Commission, which was responsible for the ethics of attorneys and disciplinary intakes.
With nearly 20 years of experience dedicated to law, Mr. Van Boekel brings a wealth of knowledge to his industry, and, in particular, to his areas of specialization, family law, divorce law, immigration law, and criminal law. When asked why he decided to pursue a career in law, Mr. Van Boekel said:I am a pro-woman lawyer, and this law has changed several things that have had a negative impact on women's ability to receive alimony. Though it changed the age of emancipation from eighteen to nineteen, it has also abolished permanent alimony in the state.
"My mother was a paralegal so I always had some curiosity about law. But It wasn't until serving in the military that I decided to make a career in it. After leaving the service, I wanted to continue making a difference in people's lives and I believe law is important because it can change people's lives for the better and you can make significant contributions to society acting as a lawyer."
Mr. Van Boekel has twice been named to the National Trial Lawyers Association list of “Top 100 Lawyers” and the Super Lawyers list of “Rising Stars,” an honor bestowed upon just 2.5 percent of all attorneys in New Jersey.
As a thought-leader in his field, Mr. Van Boekel keeps his finger on the pulse of prevailing trends in his areas of practice. In particular, he has been paying close attention to the effects of the New Jersey Alimony Reform Act which was signed into law by Governor Chris Christie in 2014. He noted:
"I am a pro-woman lawyer, and this law has changed several things that have had a negative impact on women's ability to receive alimony. Though it changed the age of emancipation from eighteen to nineteen, it has also abolished permanent alimony in the state."
