This is our 41st year, and as one of the oldest and prestigious councils in the US, we have built a solid reputation as a premiere resource for estate planning professionals in south Florida. The purpose of the organization is to promote cooperation among professionals in the field of estate planning.
We generally meet monthly at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in downtown West Palm Beach for cocktails followed by a fabulous dinner, where we invite renown experts in the field of estate planning to speak on timely topics of interest. With speakers such as Jeff Scroggin, JD, LL.M., AEP®, Samuel A. Donaldson, JD, LL.M., AEP® (Distinguished), and Jonathan G. Blattmachr, J.D., LL.M., this year was one of our best.
