GYST has compiled a directory of Estate Planning Attorneys, that meet the following criteria:

1. Recognized by the The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (formerly known as The American College of Probate Counsel) a nonprofit association of lawyers. Members have over ten years of experience in the active preparation of wills, trusts, estate planning and probate procedure.

2. Attorneys received a ranking of 8 or higher from Avvo, a for-profit leading consumer resource that uses an unbiased mathematical formula to rank licensed attorneys on a scale of 1 (Extreme Caution) to 10 (Superb) for estate planning in their respective markets. In some cases, our team was unable to find attorneys who satisfied criteria # 1 AND had a rating of 8.0 or higher. In these cases, we listed those attorneys whose rating was highest among their ACTEC Fellow peer set.
