Many of the clients at Hackard Law, A Professional Law Corporation, do not reach out to our Sacramento estate planning lawyers with the intention of creating trusts. However, after discussing their objectives and reviewing their financial situation, it becomes apparent that a trust is precisely the vehicle that they choose to achieve their goals.
These goals may include avoiding probate, providing support for a special needs child, minimizing taxes or protecting assets from creditors. Our commitment to providing custom solutions for every client is reflected in the in-depth conversations we have with them. The most important thing is to go beyond cookie-cutter solutions and truly understand each client's most pressing concerns and needs.
We Uncover Opportunities That Others Miss
Our estate planning lawyers work with individuals from all walks of life. Our clients have included a professional athlete and the family founders of a Fortune 400 company with complex assets and multiple concerns. More often than not, clients contact us because they are wrestling with challenges that threaten the value of their holdings. There is a right way and a wrong way to meet these challenges. We develop solutions — often using trusts — that protect those assets so they can be passed on to children and grandchildren.
