                                                 hortly after opening his own

                                            family law practice, Mr. Kramer’s

                                            practice became the subject of

                                            national recognition after he

                                            successfully used a California

                                            paternity action to enable Mr.Sean

                                            Sessums Means to become a

                                            recognized beneficiary of the most

                                            storied and largest trusts in U.S.

                                            History, The Doris Duke Trust. The

                                            Trustor of the Dorris Duke Trust, Mr.

                                            James B. Duke was the founder of

                                            American Tobacco Company and

                                            Duke Power Company, and the

                                            namesake of Duke University.  He

                                            also was the father of Ms. Doris Duke who upon the untimely death of her father was known as the “richest little girl in world.” Although Sean was a “lineal descendant” of Mr. James Buchanan Duke, The Doris Duke Trust was unaware of Sean’s existence until he turned 25 years old.  As a result of Brian’s work, Sean became the first person to ever be recognized as a beneficiary of the Doris Duke Trust decades after his birth.


 Sean’s rags-to-riches case included civil rights issues that caught the attention of Ms. Oprah Winfrey.  Oprah was so intrigued by the story that she published an 8-page article in her O Magazine publication.  In that story, Oprah traces how Sean’s chance encounter with Brian resulted in the formation of a most unlikely attorney-client relationship that would indelibly impact Sean’s life.  The article entitled “An Unlikely Inheritance” is posted on Oprah’s website and can be accessed by clicking here.


                                            The Duke family historian, Mr. D.W.

                                            Duke, dedicated a chapter in his

                                            book The Duke Legacy to Sean’s

                                            case.  Mr. D.W. Duke was so moved

                                            by Sean’s case that he invited

                                            Sean, a skilled artist, to design the

                                            cover of his book. You can read

                                            Chapter 15 from this book regarding

                                            Sean's incredible story clicking
