Brandon Hamm Elected a Fellow of The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel


Koley Jessen is pleased to announce that Brandon Hamm has been elected a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC).

One of 42 individuals elected internationally, Hamm joins the premier organization for estate planning attorneys, which is comprised of only 2500 legal professionals from across the globe who are committed to enhancing the field of trust and estate law. Koley Jessen’s Kurt Tjaden is also an ACTEC Fellow.

To become a Fellow of ACTEC, an attorney must be nominated for admission by a Fellow in their state and be approved by both state and national membership committees prior to consideration by the Board of Regents of ACTEC.  Candidates must also have at least 10 years of experience in the active practice of trust and estate law and are ultimately selected based on their outstanding reputation, exceptional skill, and substantial contributions to the estate planning field by lecturing, writing, teaching, and participating in bar leadership or legislative activities.

“Being elected into ACTEC is a great achievement for an estate planning attorney and worthy of recognition.  We congratulate Brandon on his admission” said Alex Wolf, President of Koley Jessen. “Brandon is continually investing in himself for the benefit of his clients and those efforts have not gone unnoticed.  Supplementing his own experience and expertise, the network and resources available to him through Koley Jessen further elevates the quality of legal guidance and advice he provides to his clients.”

At Koley Jessen, Brandon serves as a trusted advisor to individuals, families, and business owners – assisting them with the accumulation, management, protection, and transfer of their wealth.  He has been recognized by Chambers & Partners and Best Lawyers for his work in the areas of Private Wealth Law, Trusts & Estates, Tax Law, Closely-Held Companies and Family Business Law.  In addition to his election as an ACTEC Fellow, Brandon has earned his Certified Exit Planner (CExP™) designation from the Business Enterprise Institute and a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®) designation from the American College of Financial Services.
