For two decades, the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys has had a singular mission: helping estate planning attorneys transform their practices and their lives.
Robert Armstrong and Sanford M. Fisch founded the Academy after learning the hard way how to run a thriving practice and how to be expert estate planning attorneys.
What they realized was this:
Law school trains you to think like a lawyer, but it offers little preparation for life as a business owner. Think back to your years as a law student…did you have any classes on how to hire and train employees, how to market your services, or how to turn prospective clients into loyal, lifelong clients? Neither did they.
They wanted a better way to practice law so they created it. Then, they set about creating tools, systems, and coaching so that other attorneys don’t have to reinvent that wheel.
Today, the Academy serves law firms in more than 130 geographic areas nationwide. It counts among its Members some of the most widely recognized experts in the estate planning field. Co-founders Robert Armstrong and Sanford M. Fisch remain at the helm, and the Academy remains on the cutting edge of estate planning and elder law related services, keeping Members equipped for life-transforming success.
