Sacks Glazier Franklin & Lodise LLP

Margaret Lodise has established an impressive reputation in her 32-year career for handling some of the most complex and high-dollar trusts and estates disputes through trial and appeal. Among her high-profile representations, she has served as guardian ad litem for Michael Jackson’s three children for the past decade, overseeing their financial interests in all matters relating to Jackson’s estate. Lodise’s work stands out in the legal marketplace for the ways in which she’s helping to shape the future of trusts and estates law. As Chair of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel’s Amicus Briefs committee, Lodise works to improve trust, estate and tax laws, procedures and professional responsibility by filing amicus briefs. Notably in 2019, Lodise, along with committee members, filed an influential amicus brief for a North Carolina trust tax case in which the U.S. Supreme Court agreed with ACTEC’s position in a rare 9-0 decision.
