Fredrikson & Byron shareholder Jessica L. Foss has been elected a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC). ACTEC is a prestigious national organization of trust and estate lawyers who are peer-elected to membership by demonstrating the highest level of integrity, commitment to the profession, competence, and experience as trust and estate counselors.
Individual lawyers meeting the criteria for ACTEC membership are nominated by Fellows of the College and are subjected to careful review by both state and national membership selection committees prior to consideration by the regents of the College. Fellows are selected based on experience, professional reputation, 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.
Foss is based in Fredrikson & Byron’s Fargo office and works closely with individuals, families, and business owners to achieve their personal and financial estate planning goals. She focuses on asset protection for clients and their descendants, wealth transfer, estate tax minimization, and trust and probate administration. She is licensed in North Dakota and Minnesota and is a member of the Red River Valley Estate Planning Council.
