Acclaimed Reno, Nevada estate planning law firm attorneys, Jerry Dorn, Bryce Rader, and Luke Welmerink partook in one of the nation’s premier legal education conferences in Indianapolis, IN from May 3 through May 7. The American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys hosted their 23rd annual Spring Summit on “Integrity – The Foundation of Success, Without Integrity Nothing Works”, which included over 100 estate planning law firms from around the country.
The American Academy is devoted to helping its Member attorneys transform the way they practice law. The conference focuses on enhancing relationships within their communities, cutting-edge legal education, practice management and leadership training. “The Spring Summit encouraged Members to practice integrity in every aspect of their lives and law practice. By honoring their commitments, they can continue building genuine relationships within their practices and communities,” said Sanford M. Fisch, CEO and co-founder of the American Academy.
The Summit kicked off on Thursday with a keynote address titled, “How the Most Influential Communicators Create Accountability,” from speaker and CEO of Wynn Solutions, Garrison Wynn. The firms attorneys also received legal training on new legal strategies and updates in estate planning during the sessions: Planning for Special Needs Beneficiaries: Trusts and Other Strategies, Ethical Challenges: “They Should’ve Known Better,” Using Trust Protectors, Planning for Life’s Lottery: Distribution Patterns for Different Potential Outcomes and Planning Differences for First and Subsequent Marriages.
The event inspired Anderson, Dorn & Rader to evaluate how integrity plays a part in our lives and practice. Jerry Dorn said, “We truly enjoyed learning more about this topic. The sessions gave us insight on how integrity is different from morals and ethics. The biggest thing we took away though was making sure to be accountable with ourselves. Many times we unintentionally put personal commitments with ourselves on pause to take care of others’ needs before our own.”
