Representative Clients and Matters

Successfully represented a trustee in bringing a petition to confirm his authority to make a charitable gift at the direction of the settlor. Respondent beneficiaries objected and claimed that settlor lacked donative capacity. Obtained finding of donative capacity and judgment in trustee’s favor on the first day of trial after beneficiaries withdrew their objection to the petition.

Successfully represented a trust beneficiary on appeal, seeking to reverse a trial court’s order denying her disinheritance petition and finding that the opposing trust beneficiaries did not violate the trust’s no-contest clause. The appellate court reversed the order and remanded the matter to the trial court with instructions to enter a new order finding that the opposing beneficiaries did violate the no contest clause.
