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 was moved to share a recent story from my practice. I am sure you hear things like this all the time but I still wanted to share. As a new attorney (new to the practice of law and new to Estate Planning), I started my practice with the Academy. I often find myself relying on Education to feel comfortable in assisting clients or anytime something is or even 'feels' new. The end of last year, I had a case that was very different I emailed Education about the client's problem. Not only did I receive an answer back but Steve took time to talk me through the fact pattern and send me fact scenarios to run through with the client, not only helping me understand the law but what I needed to do to assist the client and properly draft the document. Last week, I had a lunch and learn with the advisor that referred the client to us and she commented that without my knowledge she sent the plan and documents to her brokerage company's attorney. They told her that it was the 'most thorough and complete estate work they have seen in years.' Needless to say, the advisor will be sending me additional work in the future. I am sure you hear things like this all the time but I really appreciated the time all the Academy staff takes to invest in our practice and lives and felt compelled to share this story.”Melanie L. — Virginia Member
