We are proud to report that we successfully defended our clients’ position, when their father attempted to omit them from his will. The father prepared a new will at the insistence of one of his children. When the new will was prepared, it failed to include a clause disposing of all assets not otherwise mentioned in the will. This is known as a residuary clause. It was obvious from the language used earlier in the will that the father did not want my clients inheriting any of his estate. We were able to convince the trial court that the father’s defectively drafted will did not omit my two clients who would inherit 2/3 of the estate. Ultimately, the Supreme Court of Georgia upheld the trial court’s decision and now my clients have gone from being completely omitted from their father’s will to inheriting 2/3 of his estate.
