Kent A. Meyerhoff was recently elected a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC). ACTEC, which was established in 1949, is a prestigious national association of lawyers whose members are elected by
demonstrating the highest level of integrity, commitment to the profession, competence and experience as trust and estate counselors. Membership in ACTEC, which is comprised of 2,700 members nationally and only 28 members
in Kansas, requires nomination by an ACTEC Fellow, review at the state and national levels, and election by the national membership at large.
ACTEC Fellows are selected on the basis of professional reputation and ability
in the fields of trusts and estates and on the basis of having made substantial contributions to these fields through lecturing, writing, teaching and bar activities. ACTEC Fellows work together to enhance their ability to provide the most efficient and highest quality services to their clients; improve and reform probate, trust and tax laws, procedures and standards of professional responsibility; and cooperate with bar associations and other organizations with similar missions.
Other Fleeson lawyers who are ACTEC Fellows are Willard B. Thompson, Linda K. Constable, and Charles E. Cole. No other law firm in Kansas has more ACTEC Fellows than Fleeson Gooing.
