Family lawyers are uniquely positioned to introduce their clients to the needs of estate planning. Many times this work is referred out, but that need not be the case. Not only do clients often want continuity of care, but no one knows their particular needs like their family lawyer. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how family law firms can quickly and easily add comprehensive estate planning to their practice.

  • Understand when to discuss and introduce estate planning to clients.
  • Demonstrate best practices for incorporating estate planning into family law topics such as prenuptial agreements, child support agreements, custody and guardianship, and inheritance and distribution in a blended family.
  • Review dynasty and special needs trusts and treatment of different children.
  • Reveal how modern estate planning software generates additional revenue.

What Our Clients Are Saying...


There isn’t anything I don’t like. Easier timekeeping and keeps the books straight because they have to match up…we switched because it includes bookkeeping and timekeeping in one program.

We needed to find an alternative solution to PCLaw, as we were moving to a cloud-based system. It appeared the employees at CosmoLex had more experience in migrating the data from PCLaw to CosmoLex.

Using a third-party platform for accounting didn’t make sense anymore…conflict check approach is good and I like the ability to handle my accounting within the case management software.
