Relaunch of our Attorney Directory

Starting Tuesday, April 18, 2017

The Academy purchased an existing attorney directory called in 2002. We took a highly- ranked directory and bumped it up a notch. Hundreds of attorneys were listed. We haven’t really been inviting new attorneys to add their profile over the last few years because we wanted to redesign the site. It took a little longer than we thought it would----but it’s ready to rock and roll.

The requirements and benefits associated with this free attorney directory include:

  • You must be a licensed attorney in good standing with your state bar.
  • Attorneys contacted through this directory agree to be responsive to the inquiries that are generated.
  • Attorneys listed are responsible for updating contact information if it changes.
  • Profiles with photographs attract more consumer activity. Please consider uploading a professional photograph.
  • Attorneys listed in this directory will be provided with at least one complimentary legal education recorded session with materials per year, typically on an estate planning or elder law topic, and a number of practice building and leadership webinars as well as reports that may be helpful in their practice.
  • There is no obligation to join The American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys for attorneys opting to list themselves in this directory.
  • Attorneys listed on this directory cannot consider themselves, nor hold themselves out to the public as “Members” of The American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys.” There is a separate qualification process for Membership.
  • If you are interested in what the Academy does to help attorneys create or grow an estate planning or elder law practice, please email and an information kit can be sent to you.

  • Likes to be “in the know” about estate planning education topics and what the future holds for law firms
