Chimenti v. Weisz (Cal. Ct. App. - Aug. 27, 2008)

How do you think you'd feel if, upon your death, this is the way you were remembered in the everlasting pages of the California Reporter:

"At the time he executed his will, Joseph Clementi was living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Richard E. Weisz was Clementi’s accountant, and apparently his only friend."

Sad, huh?

By contrast, you'd be a lot happier if you were the accountant. Who receives a six-figure bequest in the will and also becomes the trustee of a multimillion dollar charity upon Clementi's death.
