Sacks, Glazier, Franklin & Lodise LLP
Terrence (Terry) Franklin had been practicing trusts and estates litigation for nearly 25 years before he discovered that his legal career was the path to his mission in life – to ‘Help Bend the Arc of History Towards Justice’ by sharing the story of his family’s experience escaping from slavery, nearly two decades before the end of the Civil War.
Franklin’s efforts in the diversity and inclusion space have been lauded by the legal community. One example is Franklin being “Highly Commended” in the category of “Outstanding Contribution to Furthering the Advancement of Diversity in the Legal Profession.” He was also selected by the National Black Lawyers, a professional and educational organization comprised of the nation’s premier African American attorneys, for inclusion in its list of Top 100 Lawyers in California. Franklin actively mentors Sacks, Glazier, Franklin & Lodise LLP’s minority lawyers and supports them taking leadership roles in organizations to increase their visibility and build their practice.
