Sara A. Wells, a Member of the Private Client Group of Mintz, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. has been elected as a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Council (ACTEC).
ATEC is a professional association consisting of approximately 2,700 lawyers from throughout the United States. Fellows of the College are nominated by other Fellows in their geographic area and are elected by the membership at large. A lawyer cannot apply for membership in the College. 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.
Among ATEC’s goals are to maintain an association, international in scope, of lawyers skilled and experienced in the preparation of wills and trusts; estate planning; probate procedure and administration of trusts and estates of decedents, minors and incompetents; and to improve and reform probate, trust and tax laws, procedures, and professional responsibility.
Ms. Wells’ legal practice focuses on the areas of estate planning, estate and trust administration, tax planning, and business succession planning.
