ACTEC is a national organization of more than 2,500 lawyers and law professors peer-elected to membership. Its members, called “Fellows,” must have more than 10 years of experience in the active practice of probate and trust law or estate planning.

It is their aim to improve and reform probate, trust and tax laws, procedures, and professional responsibility.
