The Elville and Associates Difference
Education and counseling are the foundations upon which Elville and Associates’ attorneys serves its clients, partners, and surrounding community. The firm counsels its clients based on the core principles of the Elville Legacy System™ — the six steps to perfect estate planning. Mr. Elville has also developed programs for clients who wish to streamline the planning process but still wish to enjoy the benefits of the educational component throughout, including Elville Self-Direct Select™ and Elville Self-Direct Protect™ a limited-attorney-assistance client education program for estate planning. The firm also offers an Advisors’ Forum every two months for its planning team partners, an continuing education series that covers the latest topics in the world of estate planning, elder law and special needs planning.
Elville and Associates’ attorneys frequently offer free educational workshops throughout central Maryland. Our attorneys are seasoned speakers and share their knowledge over 100 times each year with the communities we serve about a wide range of topics – from our popular “Estate Planning Essentials” workshops, to workshops delving into elder law, retirement planning, estate and trust administration, special needs planning, aging in place versus Continuing Care Retirement Community living, the latest topics of interest in estate planning, and many, many more. Elville and Associates’ attorneys present regularly at financial services firms, libraries, senior centers, employee benefits meetings for companies, expos, special needs organizations, and many more.
The firm also firmly believes in client care and client lifetime maintenance and updating to ensure that planning works as intended. The mission of our Client Care Program (“planning that works”) is to provide our clients with the comfort and assurance that their estate and elder law plans will work no matter how their goals situations may change, and to ensure planning remains consistent with changes in the laws. Elville and Associates is currently one of only a handful of law firms in the country to have an accredited and designed Client Care Program through the Client Maintenance Academy located in Boston.
