Court Rules in Favor of Firm’s Client at Trial Regarding Interpretation of Handwritten Will

In October 2019, Partner Bob Sacks and Associate Arevik Stepanyan went to trial with respect to the interpretation of a handwritten will. The issue was whether the firm’s clients would receive 50% of real property valued at several million dollars, or whether that property passed to others through the residue of the estate. The Court rejected the opposing parties’ interpretation of the will and found in favor of the firm’s clients.
