SORT Through Your Planning Options in Light of the SECURE Act
The SECURE Act dramatically changed the estate planning landscape for clients with IRAs. As you would expect, LWP has created an innovative solution, the Spouse Only Retirement Trust (SORT). We’ll begin this session by reviewing SECURE Act basics and relevant updates. Then you’ll learn why and how the SORT works, when to use it, and the pros and cons of various planning options. In the end you’ll feel more secure about your ability to protect assets despite challenges posed by the SECURE Act.

The new Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) option allows you to quickly and accurately generate CRTs for clients with potential tax issues. In this session you’ll learn why, how, and when to use the CRT option, the tax consequences (and benefits) of implementing a CRT, how to explain the tax benefits to clients and allied professionals, and how to administer a CRT after a client’s passing. If you want to take your tax planning to the next level, this session is for you.

Learn to Proficiently & Confidently Utilize LWP’s Proprietary Medicaid Application Process
Walk through the LWP Medicaid application workflow in Actionstep and learn how it can be adjusted for specific state and county requirements. This is not a legal-technical session about trusts and asset protection. Rather, you will learn the application submission process from start to finish. We will also explore the “terms of engagement” between your firm, your clients, your team, care facilities, and Medicaid itself. This session is a great opportunity to help a member of your team confidently assume the role of Medicaid Paralegal/Coordinator.

FDS: It leads to RMS success!

Cut Through the BS: Run a Profitable, Satisfying Practice Using LWP Systems, Processes, and Tools
Your firm’s long-term success depends on having the right people in the right seats, individual and team accountability, the efficient use of everyone’s time, and a spirit of collaboration rather than confrontation. In this session we’ll evaluate how well your firm has absorbed the LWP “way of life”—and the proprietary systems, processes, and tools that ultimately help your firm increase revenue and profitability. We’ll walk through LWP’s five key focusers, the nuances of time tracking, the importance of team morale, and more.

Branding Versus Marketing Versus Advertising: Yes, there’s a Difference (and You Need All 3)
Branding, marketing, and advertising are the keys to generating qualified leads and new revenue. In this session we’ll use real-world examples to help you understand the difference between the three terms, how each builds off the other, why you need all three to project a cohesive image and message in your market, and what areas you need to work on. We’ll also have a Q&A featuring our Director of Marketing and a law firm leader to give you a “big picture” perspective.

Share, Compare, and Learn: Owner/Attorney Panel
“How do I make the LWP system work for me?” “How do I get the most from my team?” “How do you successfully close a vision meeting?” These are just a few examples of the types of questions you can ask fellow owner/attorneys during this free-wheeling Panel. Limiting attendance to owner/attorneys allows you to broach topics and ask questions that you might not feel comfortable discussing with your entire team in the room.
Speakers:
Briana L. Moriarty
8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
Share, Compare, and Learn: Team Member Panel
“What is the best way to hold my boss accountable?” “What can I do to help the firm operate more efficiently?” “How do I handle ‘difficult’ clients?” You can ask questions like these, and share whatever else is on your mind, during this Team Member Panel. Since attendance is limited to your peers—teams from around the country—you can talk freely about issues you might not want to raise with your firm’s owner in the room.

Introducing GuidrSM, the Tesla of the Legal Industry
Tesla completely redesigned how energy was delivered to a drivetrain to create an efficient, fully electric automobile. The creation of GuidrSM represents a similarly transformative event, a genuine revolution in the way law firms are run and legal services are delivered to consumers. In this hands-on session you will learn the difference between the traditional, virtual, and digital practice of law; how to systematize the new technology into your firm’s operations; and how to provide attorney services through a digital platform and traditional methods simultaneously. You will see how GuidrSM has performed at several “test” firms around the country and have the opportunity to walk through the GuidrSM user experience.
