Welcome to the Estate Planning Council of Diablo Valley

The Estate Planning Council of Diablo Valley was founded over 30 years ago with over 60 members and a vision. Our mission is to provide opportunities for the practitioners of multiple disciplines to meet for education designed to improve the level of proficiency regarding estate planning, as well as to foster relationships.


The Council meets at the Lafayette Park Hotel on the third Wednesday of each month, September through May unless otherwise indicated. Members and their guests enjoy dinner and a relevant speaker in the field of Estate Planning.


We are now offering meeting sponsorship and advertising opportunities in our membership directory. Please use the following link for more info.
