Los Angeles Business Journal Names Terry Franklin to 2019 List of “Most Influential Minority Attorneys”

Partner Terry Franklin was recognized on Los Angeles Business Journal‘s 2019 list of “Most Influential Minority Attorneys” for his reputation as a leading trusts and estates attorney handling the most complex, high-value cases. Notably, Mr. Franklin was responsible for several published appeals and the landmark Moeller v. Superior Court case, which was brought before the California Supreme Court and established a fiduciary exception to the attorney-client privilege for successor trustees. Franklin was also counsel in: Giammarrusco v. Simon, which addressed whether a no contest clause barred an attempt to reform a trust document due to a scrivener’s error; Estate of Cleveland, which addressed the rights of inheritance for foster and stepchildren under the California Probate Code; Estate of Richter, which held that a proposed action to determine a surviving spouse’s community property interest would not violate a no-contest clause in a decedent’s will.

The “Most Influential Minority Attorneys” list features Los Angeles attorneys who have been particularly impactful on the legal scene while serving as trusted advisors in the L.A. region, along with maintaining the highest professional and ethical standards, and for contributions to the business and legal community at large.
