Howard County Estate Planning Attorney Attends Exclusive Online Legal Conference
Esteemed Howard County estate planning attorney, Amy Lazas participated in the second online rendition of one of the nation’s premier estate planning legal conferences from October 6-11, 2020. The American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys hosted their 27th annual Fall Summit online, which included attorneys from qualified estate planning law firms from around the country.

The American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys continued to heed the CDC’s recommendations to avoid large gatherings during the COVID19 outbreak. The pivot to a successful virtual Summit demonstrated how business can safely be conducted while maintaining their core purpose. The 2020 Fall Summit focused on expanding Member’s understanding of and confidence in utilizing the available tools in an increasingly digital world. As always, the Academy is committed to providing cutting-edge legal education and practice management tools to transform the way their Member attorneys operate.

“In the wake of COVID19, attorneys need to not only adapt to a new landscape of how to safely operate, but they need to feel empowered to excel in their estate planning and elder law businesses, which are becoming even more crucial today. While we are physically distanced, the discussions and lessons that have been reviewed are invaluable for our Member Attorneys.” said Academy CEO and co-founder, Sanford M. Fisch.
