Hugh Marshall Obtains New Judgment in Irrevocable Testamentary Trust Matter
Congratulations to Hugh L. Marshall for obtaining the termination of an irrevocable testamentary trust, allowing him to procure nearly nine hundred thousand dollars for a client who was otherwise locked into receiving a mere fraction of that amount over his lifetime. The obstacles were considerable. There was a judgment over six decades old that interpreted the trust very unfavorably to the client, and literally scores of contingent beneficiaries opposed to the client’s attack on that judgment as void. After three years of litigation, negotiation and persuasion, Mr. Marshall was able to obtain a new judgment – this time terminating the trust entirely to give his client a large lump sum free and clear.
