Bartko Trial Team Named California Attorneys of the Year!

Bartko attorneys Ben Riley, Sony Barari, Rob Bunzel, and Gabriella Wilkins were named 2022 California Attorneys of the Year, following their complete trial victory in the Robert A. Naify Trust case. The petitioner in that case claimed that her step-father, Robert Naify, promised to leave her his golf course in Spain, and to treat her the same as his biological daughters in his final trust. After a three-week trial where the petitioner sought at least $250 million, Judge Richard Ulmer rejected the oral promise claim.

The Daily Journal and California Lawyer magazine selected the Bartko Naify trial team as one of 12 California Attorneys of the Year. The pdf article can be viewed here.
