Sacks, Glazier, Franklin & Lodise LLP

Terrence Franklin has developed a reputation as a leading trusts and estates attorney in his nearly 30 years of practice, handling the most complex, high-value cases. He 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. Franklin was also counsel in: Giammarrusco v. Simon, which addressed whether a no contest clause barred an attempt to reform a trust document due to a scrivener’s error; Estate of Cleveland, which addressed the rights of inheritance for foster and stepchildren under the California Probate Code; Estate of Richter, which held that a proposed action to determine a surviving spouse’s community property interest would not violate a no-contest clause in a decedent’s will.

Regularly recognized by leading lists and awards, Franklin was ranked by Chambers and Partners’ High Net Worth guide in the Private Wealth Law category for the past two years.
