Sacks, Glazier, Franklin & Lodise has once again been named a top law firm for High Net Worth Private Wealth Disputes by Chambers and Partners. The firm received a Band 1 designation in California, the highest ranking by the legal guide. Chambers recognizes firms based on technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, diligence, commitment and other qualities most valued by clients.

Attorneys Terrence Franklin, Ryan Houck, Meg Lodise and Bob Sacks were recognized as Notable Practitioners in the Private Wealth Disputes category for their work in trusts and estates litigation.

In its editorial based on interviews with clients and attorney colleagues, Chambers noted:

“They are terrific, bar none; Sacks Glazier has to be the best.”

“If I were in a spot and needed lawyers, they would certainly be on my shortlist of people I would hire. They are lawyers with integrity who are very experienced in this area.”

Market sources described the firm as a “boutique that only does probate litigation and are good at what they do.”

Feedback regarding the attorneys, included:

Terrence Franklin: Franklin is “very good at picking up what other people in the room are saying without words. Being able to sense where there is room for compromise and being able to create that room for compromise in a very heated situation is what Terry is outstanding at.”

Ryan Houck: “I feel like his clear and concise ability to summarize situations and reach out to the other side to make progress in negotiations is in large part due to his demeanor.” “Communication with Ryan has been fantastic; he is extremely responsive and always provides a very clear analysis of both the ongoing situation and then a plan of action.”

Meg Lodise: “Lodise has considerable experience in contentious private client matters, acting for wealthy individuals and various fiduciaries on trust and estate litigation, including contested probate proceedings. Lodise also focuses on estate, probate and trust administration and appellate work.”

Bob Sacks: One California trust and estate litigator said: “I think Bob is a very skillful and smart lawyer.” Sacks regularly represents high net worth individuals and fiduciaries and leverages his over three decades of experience in contentious trusts, estates and conservatorships.
