Employment Law Seminar: Small Mistakes, Major Consequences… Let’s Hit Rewind

By Hoge Fenton | 05.31.2018 | Speaking Engagements & Firm Events

Some say you haven’t been in business until you’ve been sued. We say you should stay in business and not get sued! Through this seminar, we will show employers how California’s wage and hour and discrimination laws can put a small to mid-size company out of business based on simple mistakes and inadvertent errors. Join Hoge Fenton’s Employment Law Team as we work backwards from a damaging judgment after trial to the various opportunities a company has along the way–from the beginning of the employment relationship to post-termination–to avoid a lawsuit. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how an ounce of prevention is worth its weight in gold. Speakers Sarju A.

Shareholder Denise Chambliss and Attorney Jim Cummins to Speak at Tri-Valley Estate Planning Council

By Hoge Fenton | 02.13.2018 | Speaking Engagements & Firm Events

Topic Undue Influence in Will and Trust Contests Under Probate Code §86 Date March 1st, 2018 Time 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Location Marriott Pleasanton 11950 Dublin Canyon Rd. Pleasanton, CA 94588 Presentation Summary: Undue influence attacks on a will or trust are extremely difficult to prevail. Roughly only one of twenty cases is successful in voiding a testamentary instrument due to undue influence. Of interest to trust and estate professionals are two recent potential game changers – First, the addition of Probate Code §86, which provides a statutory definition of undue influence by incorporation of the Welfare and Institutions Code statute on financial elder abuse § 15610.70, and second, the application of Family Code §721 in cases involving surviving spousal beneficiaries to shift the party with the initial burden of proof from that of the contestant (plaintiff) to that of the surviving spouse (defendant). Seasoned trial attorneys Denise Chambliss and James Cummins of Hoge Fenton will explore the trust and estate litigation issues of lack of capacity, undue influence, and financial abuse with a broader discussion about these common, but rarely successful, challenges to testamentary documents. Learning Objectives: Update on changes in the California Probate Code Update on judicial treatment of evidentiary issues in undue influence challenges Understand signs of potential undue influence when drafting testamentary instruments REGISTER NOW to Join Us March 1st at the Pleasanton Marriott from 6pm – 8pm.
