"The National Network has been an incredible source of technical education, business development strategies, and long term success philosophy. They are truly teaching and leading on the cutting edge, way ahead of the rest of the market place. They were instrumental in my transition from a hectic general practice into a well organized specialized practice. I wish I had joined many years ago when I was just getting started."
Christopher W. Dumm & Markelle M. Dumm
"We have been members of the Network for 7 years. We cannot imagine the frustration and stress that an attorney would experience if he or she attempted to start an estate planning practice from scratch without the assistance of the Network. Our membership has been tremendously beneficial. The excellent legal education and unique collegiality of the National Network is like none other we have experienced. Keep up the good work!"

"I graduated from law school and wanted to open my own practice but felt a little uncomfortable about what I didn't know. For example, how to manage a law firm, hire employees, create internal systems, and so forth. The National Network's Practicum programs not only gave me substantive legal technical education in estate and tax planning, but also significant instruction on practice management and marketing. When I felt I needed to bone up on my speaking skills, again the Network was there with Speaker's School to help with that as well."
Peggy R. Hoyt
"The National Network gave me the confidence to start my own estate planning practice. I knew that I would have both the legal and technical support I would need to create a thriving practice. In addition, I met my law partner in the National Network. Five years later, we are going strong and still growing!"

"The National Network has been the best education in the law I ever experienced. One week of Practicum launched my estate planning practice way beyond what I ever dreamed it could be. The specialty workshops made me an expert in my community. Even better are the friendships that enable me to comfortably call others with problems and ask for their patient advice. And, I earned back all that I invested in the first two weeks after completing the Practicums."

"In my transition from a primarily litigation practice to an estate planning practice, I found the tools provided by the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys to be invaluable. The quality of the education, the collegiality of the members, and opportunities for coaching and business development made the process much more comfortable than it otherwise would have been."

"The first year and a half of my practice was spent doing a lot of residential real estate closings. I would get the occasional will client but the bulk of my practice was real estate. I didn't really care for it, I didn't like where it was going as a practice area and it wasn't fulfilling me at any level. I started to think back to my law school days and the time when I dreamed of doing estate planning. I realized that estate planning work wasn't going to drop in my lap - I would have to go out there and get it. If I wanted to hold myself out as a top notch planner then I would have to retool myself as well. I was looking for a way to operate at a high level of competence right out of the box. The Network was the best organization I found at helping attorneys do just that. The Network gave me not only the technical training but the practice management tips I would need to make a successful transition. The Network has given me the confidence to know that I can do this. The biggest advantage to becoming a part of the network so early in my career is that it helped me establish healthy habits as an attorney and avoid a lot of business mistakes that new attorneys might make."
Frank L. Bridges
"My membership in the Network has made my law practice a richly rewarding experience. As a professional, the Network has taught me so many lessons, they are too numerous to list; but first among them is how to establish and maintain unique relationships with my clients as a valued and trusted advisor. The collegiality the Network fosters among its community of members and related advisors is a treasured resource."

"Joining the NNEPA in 1997 has been absolutely the best thing I have done in my law career. It has given me the tools to develop my practice in a direction that I love, clients that I enjoy, and a wonderfully collegial relationship with other attorneys. The network focuses not only on technically accurate and cutting edge education in a way that is practically relevant to my clients, it has also provided me with excellent tools for running and growing my practice."
