Aaron D. Bundy carried the Fry & Elder banner proudly and highly in our nation’s capital earlier this month.
The accomplished Oklahoma trial lawyer traveled to Washington D.C. to present at the 55th Annual Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) Conference, which ran June 6-9.
Bundy co-presented with highly-regarded forensic psychologist Dr. Sol Rapaport and former Fry & Elder attorney M. Shane Henry for a presentation titled “Preparing for and Conducting a Cross Examination of a Custody Evaluation.”
“The presentation went very well,” Bundy said. “There were nearly 200 people in attendance – half of them were mental health professionals and the other half were lawyers with one judge on hand.”
Bundy said the presentation fell into three parts.
- Discussion about preparing to testify as a witness and preparing early to cross-examine an expert with an adverse conclusion.
- Discussion about what constitutes a sound custody evaluation.
- Final discussion about the goals and ways to cross-examine a mental health professional making a recommendation to the court.
“We had a lot of positive feedback from the audience immediately after the presentation,” Bundy said. “It really was the most I can remember in terms of the number of people approaching to thank us. It felt great and it was a wonderful event.”
55th Annual Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) Conference a Big Deal
Being part of the presentation lineup at the AFCC Conference is quite an honor for both Bundy and the Tulsa legal community.
The AFCC was founded in 1963 and its members include all of the following:
- Court Commissioners
- Custody Evaluators
- Parenting Coordinators
- Court Administrators
- Social Workers
- Parent Educators
- Financial Professionals
Some of the most well-known and highly-regarded family law minds in the profession presented at the conference, including Bundy.
The conference featured keynote presentations by kidnapping victim Jayce Duggard, who authored the New York Times best seller “A Stolen Life,” along with iconic journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Bob Woodward, who uncovered the Watergate scandal which led to President Richard Nixon’s impeachment.
