“I don’t know. Well, if I sell one estate plan in a month, I have paid for it, probably four times over.”
“I don’t know and I don’t care. It’s been a fantastic addition to our office and has made such a difference. Whether it’s from a marketing standpoint, office efficiency standpoint and a competency standpoint, it’s been worth it’s weight in gold.”
“When you get that first case, earn that first fee, you realize it’s the smartest thing you’ve ever did. I’m here 8 years later still investing every year in ElderCounsel.”
Like many other elder law attorneys, Jonathan Rouse first started in estate planning and just recently decided to incorporate elder law.
In the fall of 2018, Jonathan joined ElderCounsel and attended the Elder Law Immersion and Practice-Building Camp. While attending the camp, he started to question if there was a demand for an elder law attorney in his small town and approached ElderCounsel CEO Valerie Peterson with his concerns.
“I remember Valerie told me, ‘A small town is perfect. It’s an untapped market. You’re going into an area where nobody else is doing this and you’re going to have more business than you can handle.’ ”
Jonathan fully submerged himself into ElderCounsel resources and within a year of joining, his elder law practice took off. New clients were coming in looking for legal services only he could provide and business has increased so much that he decided to hire an additional associate and staff member.
Jonathan’s success is an excellent example of how an ElderCounsel membership can transform your practice. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can support your law firm as we have for Jonathan.
Find a Sense of Community
Stephanie Buffa, ElderCounsel Member
As a solo practitioner, Stephanie was responsible for drafting and updating documents for her clients. The majority of her time was spent updating documents to meet state and federal regulations and laws. She wanted time back in her day so she could be more attentive to her clients’ needs. She decided to join ElderCounsel so she could have up to date documents all of the time.
Finding a sense of community among ElderCounsel members has been one of Stephanie’s favorite parts of becoming a member herself. “I do find that a lot of attorneys that practice in the elder law area are always looking to help each other,” said Stephanie, “and it’s no different with the members of ElderCounsel.”

“After being a member of WealthCounsel for a few years, I learned that many of the clients I work with really needed more of protection of assets and nursing home concerns. The people at ElderCounsel are phenomenal and you are never treated as an outsider.”

“The value of the Symposium is feeling grounded in not only the law, but working in elder law and estate planning. It also allows you to go to both elder law and estate planning since they mesh so well together. Every time I go I feel like I’ve gone up another level in my expertise and feel of more value to my clients.”
– Julia Dean ElderCounsel Member since 2010
“The support system that I get as a solo practitioner that ElderCounsel provides is invaluable to me. I couldn’t do what I’m doing now on my own without the support of ElderCounsel. Through the software, and the fellow members. It’s helped me grow and gave me confidence to give quality work to my clients.”
