Your firm’s success shouldn’t depend on a single stream of revenue; attend an Estate Planning Essentials intensive to diversify your offerings and start making more money. In one day, you’ll learn how to increase client satisfaction, boost income, and protect your business from market fluctuations. And you can bring your paralegal for free!
Morning sessions will cover the basics of estate planning law and afternoon sessions will focus on drafting and delivering a plan to your clients. When you leave you'll have a sample client binder and your own complete estate plan—you’ll also have access to WealthCounsel’s online training modules for three months (and 34 MCLE hours).
