McAfee & Taft attorney Barbara Klepper has been accepted into the inaugural class of the Heart of America Fellows Institute of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC).  The Institute, which consists of six programs spread across three sessions, begins in November 2018 and concludes in May 2019.

The Heart of America Fellows Institute was created by ACTEC Fellows located in the states of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska to develop the profession’s future leaders in trust and estate law through a series of in-depth educational presentations led by outstanding subject matter experts in each field.  Topics include asset protection and business succession planning, wealth transfer strategies, fiduciary taxation, generation-skipping transfer tax, estate and gift tax returns, and estate and trust litigation.

Klepper’s practice focuses on all aspects of tax and family wealth planning as well as executive compensation and employee benefits planning.  Earlier this year, the 2012 honors graduate from the Oklahoma City University School of Law earned her master of laws degree in taxation from New York University.
