Fisch, the Academy provides our Members exclusive access to a comprehensive set of tools developed and fine-tuned over more than 20 years to systematically take a law firm from its current state to the next great level of success.
The Academy’s comprehensive set of tools, available exclusively to our members, include:
All Academy Members have instant access to Up-to-the minute legal education on law changes, planning techniques and document options.
Informative seminars, tools and materials to assist members in educating consumers in their communities.

Annual assistance is given to all Academy Members in the process of developing a Law Firm Marketing Plan for the coming year.
Members have access to the Academy’s exclusive Members Only website, where they find indispensable information on law firm practice management, legal marketing, and law firm systems.
In the growing digital age, it is imperative for law firms to have an online presence. Effective personal websites featuring substantive legal content, a seminar reservation system, and top-notch site designs are available for Member law firms with impressive search results on prime search engines.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Social Media support is available to all Academy Member law firms to keep them at the top of search engine results and maintain a network of lead generating contacts.
The Academy takes great pride in our State-of-the-art legal software, including valuable document production software and CounselPro™ database.
Members are granted one-on-one continuous support in the Strategic Planning Process for taking their law firms to the next level.
Each Academy Member law firm gets an annual Leadership and Management review of their law practice, financials and staffing, as well as guidance in building a law firm business plan around the existing strengths.
By implementing the Academy systems, you can focus on effectively serving your clients’ estate planning and elder care needs, rather than on law firm marketing and management obligations.
Since 1993, the Academy has been a highly-regarded and sought-after resource for attorneys and consumers alike. We’ve been heralded numerous times by Money Magazine, Consumer Reports, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal. In 2010, Academy founders Robert Armstrong and Sanford M. Fisch co-authored The E-Myth Attorney: Why Most Legal Practices Don’t Work and What to Do About It with small business expert Michael E. Gerber. The E-Myth Attorney combines business development expertise with legal practice management systems to bridge the gap between attorney and entrepreneur.
As our many “testimonials” indicate, Membership in the Academy has fundamentally changed the lives of countless Members around the United States. What’s holding you back from changing your law practice into a business that allows you to work only four days a week, spend more time with family and hobbies, all while giving your clients superior service?
