Sacks, Glazier, Franklin & Lodise LLP
Terrence Franklin has developed a reputation as a leading trusts and estates attorney in his 30 years of practice, handling the most complex cases involving significant dollar amounts. Franklin is responsible for several published appeals and the landmark Moeller v. Superior Court case, which was brought before the California Supreme Court and established a fiduciary exception to the attorney-client privilege for successor trustees. In the past 18 months alone, he has successfully represented beneficiaries, trustees, individuals and institutional clients in matters involving substantial assets. For example, he recently represented multiple siblings as co-trustees against their sibling co-trustee’s attempts to improperly prevent the sale of a closely-held family business for her personal benefit at the expense of the trust, resulting in the successful sale of that business and resignation of the rogue co-trustee. Continued litigation resulted in discounted “buyout” of remaining beneficiary.
