What is an EPiC Certified Estate Planning Law Firm, and why is this designation important?
“None of us is as smart as all of us.”—Kenneth Blanchard
In order for a law practice to become an EPiC Certified Estate Planning Law Firm, it must meet all of the following criteria:
- A significant portion of its income must be earned from the practice of estate planning, elder law planning, asset protection planning or related practice areas (“Estate Planning”).
- Regularly and actively participates in a national think-tank/mastermind organization of estate planning law firms on at least a quarterly basis.
- Participates in a quality assurance system, which includes the vetting of its strategies and solutions.
- Utilizes Estate Planning documents which have been subjected to a review process, geared toward achieving best-in-class language, conducted by at least 100 practicing attorneys from across the country.
- Has access to continuing legal education resources focused on Estate Planning by virtue of a membership, affiliation or association with an Estate Planning-focused organization (outside of EPiC).
