Attorney Lindsey Buchheit of Buchheit Law is newly certified as an Estate Planning Law Specialist (ESPL) by the Estate Law Specialist Board, Inc., an organization accredited by the American Bar Association and affiliated with the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils. Her office is in Sergeant Bluff, Iowa, where she practices law in Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota.
Ms. Buchheit is currently the only attorney in the State of Iowa to hold the EPLS designation.
To become Board-certified as an Estate Planning Law Specialist (EPLS), an attorney must have devoted at least one-third of her practice to estate planning for a minimum of five years. In addition to passing a comprehensive examination in estate planning law, the attorney must also receive recommendations from five colleagues and must establish that she has at least 36 continuing legal education credits within the last three years.
By obtaining her EPLS, Attorney Buchheit also earned the designation as an Accredited Estate Planner (AEP) through the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils. The Supreme Court of Iowa does not certify lawyers as specialists and the certification is not a requirement to practice law.
