Jones Foster, a private and commercial law firm based in West Palm Beach, Florida, is pleased to announce that Trusts & Estates Litigation Shareholder Theodore S. Kypreos has been elected a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC).
Theo was one of 35 Fellows elected nationwide following the College’s 2023 Fall Meeting and the only attorney from Florida in his class. To qualify for membership in ACTEC, an attorney must be nominated by an active Fellow as part of an extensive nomination process lasting six to nine months and meet professional requirements to be considered for election by the Board of Regents.
ACTEC's selection of Theo for membership was based on many factors, including over 10 years of active practice in probate and trust law; his substantial leadership contributions to the field of trust and estate law through lectures, thought leadership, and active participation in The Florida Bar’s Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section as well as his role as president of both the Palm Beach County Bar Association and its Young Lawyers Section; and his consistent recognition in the field of trusts and estates law in peer-reviewed publications such as Florida Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America.
As a Fellow of the College, Theo will support its mission in the improvement and reform of probate, trust, and tax laws and procedures in addition to professional practice standards.
ACTEC is a prestigious national, peer-elected association of approximately 2,400 lawyers and law professors who are skilled and experienced in the preparation of wills and trusts, estate planning, and probate procedure and administration of trusts and estates of decedents, minors, and incompetents.
