Welcome to the website of the New Hampshire Estate Planning Council. If you are looking for an estate planner, you’ve come to the right place. The Council can connect you with an estate planner who is a member in good standing of our local council.
We maintain a database of our members in order to help simplify your search for a qualified estate planner; please see the Member Directory tab. Most members adhere to the concept of the team approach in estate planning so your plan may be considered by a team of professionals of your choosing.
If you are an estate planning professional, who is not yet a member, we extend an invitation to you to learn more about our local estate planning council which has a membership of over 220 professionals. Local estate planning councils are required to have members representing, at minimum, four primary disciplines: attorneys, accountants, trust officers and life underwriter/financial planning professional. The Council, also includes other related disciplines such as non-profit development and planned giving specialists. We believe that maintaining a membership in an affiliated local council is critical to your professional development and we encourage you to join.

In addition, information pertaining to meeting sponsorship, website advertising and vendor display tables is available by clicking on the "Documents" button on the left side of this page.
