The National Family Law Trial Institute in Houston is an organization devoted to training family lawyers for trial. The students range from fledging lawyers to seasoned professionals. A faculty that includes top family law litigators, jurists, forensic, and business valuation experts from across the country does the training. A co-founder of the Institute was attorney Stephen Kolodny, who passed away in 2020. The Institute has initiated the annual Kolodny Award, to be given to an individual for unparalleled dedication and commitment to improving the trial skills of family law attorneys. The first Kolodny Award has been bestowed upon veteran valuation expert Jay E. Fishman, managing director at Financial Research Associates. Fishman has been on the Institute’s faculty for 32 years. “The award is special to me as Stephen Kolodny was the moving force behind the Institute,” Fishman tells BVWire. “To me, he was a mentor and a friend. I am humbled to have been chosen for such an award.”
