What you think of these companies that offer to transform your practice, going into ESTATE PLANNING?
Such as American Academy of Estate Planning, or New Law Business Model, or the Elder Law College, etc.
I’ve drafted a few wills and trusts over the years, but have been considering giving more emphasis in this area. Will those companies mostly be helpful only on providing advertisement material and administrative goals, or will they actually help with substantive material/information? Thanks
