Terry Franklin Speaks at Washington, D.C. Estate Planning Council Winter Meeting

Partner Terry Franklin is presenting “The 1846 Last Will of John Sutton: What’s New and Not So New in the World of Drafting Wills, and Contest Litigation” at the Washington, D.C. Estate Planning Council Winter Meeting on February 24, 2021. In this multi-media presentation, Franklin retraces the path to his discovery of his fourth great-grandfather’s will, and the unexpected will contest that threatened to keep his family enslaved. He also discusses issues of drafting to anticipate potential problems, the estate planner as witness, and how the facts of an estate planning meeting can play out at trial.
