J. Howard Marshall II

We served as co-lead trial counsel in the litigation and jury trial surrounding claims made by Anna Nicole Smith and J. Howard Marshall III against the estate of the late J. Howard Marshall II. We represented Mr. Marshall’s family-owned corporation and Mr. Marshall’s accountant in both his individual capacity and as trustee of various trusts established by Mr. Marshall during his lifetime. Although Ms. Smith dismissed her claim after the fourth month of trial, she remained in the lawsuit until the verdict because of a pending counterclaim. In a highly charged and high-profile case, the jury found against Ms. Smith and Mr. Marshall’s oldest son in every respect.
