American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys
The American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys is an exclusive, membership organization that fosters the explosive growth of estate planning law firms nationwide through the use of our diverse business building and legal practice management systems.
The Academy's comprehensive set of tools, available exclusively to our members, include:
Legal and Educational Support
Legal Marketing and Practice Management Tools
Technology & Software Support
By implementing our systems, you can focus on effectively serving your clients' estate planning and elder care needs, rather than on law firm marketing and management obligations.
Academy events, such as our Annual Summit, enable members to network with like-minded entrepreneurial attorneys and learn the latest estate planning techniques and practice management tools.
“I left an in-house counsel position at a large bank to start my own practice at a time that the bank was being prepared for a merger and my position was likely to terminate. I had no clients and only a sketch of a business plan in my head. I linked up with a couple of life insurance agents who were giving living trust seminars to prepare the documents for their customers. I was paid separately and had the clients sign a separate engagement agreement. I didn't know enough about what I was doing and needed a big jump start. I saw an ad for the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys and began to do a lot of due diligence. I borrowed the necessary money for the membership and to hire a very competent secretary, took the training, read the materials and started to do seminars almost immediately.
I now have a partner, an associate and a former partner who is of counsel with my firm. We are keeping 11 full-time and 2 part-time employees busy and manage to bring in close to $2M in revenue each year.”
