DULUTH, MN—Duluth-based attorney J. Steve Nys, of the law firm Fryberger, Buchanan, Smith & Frederick, P.A., was recently elected to the Minnesota State Bar Association’s (MSBA) Probate and Trust Law Section Council. He will serve as one of fourteen attorneys on the Section Council, and the only member practicing law north of the Twin Cities.
Nys is a 2008 graduate of William Mitchell College of Law. Through his work with Fryberger, he focuses on estate planning, business succession planning, real estate transactions, and trust and estate administration, which makes him an ideal fit for the MSBA’s Probate and Trust Law Section Council.
The Section Council works on behalf of its members and the public to assist with and improve the practice of estate planning, probate, and trust law in Minnesota. The Section Council also provides oversight for the various Committees of the Probate and Trust Law Section, such as the Legislation Committee and the Public Service Committee.
Nominations to the Section Council are made by its three immediate past presidents, which are then voted on by the entire membership at the annual Section Conference.
“Over the past few years, I have been increasingly involved with the Probate and Trust Section, and with Minnesota Continuing Legal Education,” said Nys. “I sincerely appreciate the nomination and election as a recognition of that involvement from my colleagues. I look forward to being a voice on the Section Council for estate planning attorneys from greater Minnesota, and continuing to build positive relationships with attorneys in the metro area and all across the state.”
