The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (“AAML”) lost a giant on August 21, 2017 when Southern California Chapter Fellow, Jim Hennenhoefer, unexpectedly passed away. Jim’s offices were in Northern San Diego County, but his presence extended throughout the state, the country and even internationally, through his involvement in the International Academy of Family Lawyers (“IAFL”). Jim was a former naval officer, and his proud stature was a hallmark.
