Rancho Cordova used to be home to mighty Mather Air Force Base, a hub of military activity. Today, the world has changed - the area is now a center for business and commerce as well as home to plenty of residential neighborhoods. Before the Internet, people in Rancho Cordova - like anywhere else - went to the White Pages and the Yellow Pages to find an attorney for estate, probate and trust litigation. Maybe you remember those days, and maybe you don't, but clients for estate planning and estate litigation cases now mostly surf the web to find the right lawyer. That's where Hackard Law comes in.
When prospective clients from Rancho Cordova and other areas of Sacramento search for probate, estate and trust attorneys, they usually don't know the exact legal requirements of their case (and that's okay). Their search usually is generated by the need to talk to someone about an estate. People often associate probate with an estate but don't necessary associate other professional "words of art" that attorneys might use but people in everyday life don't. One of the ways that we try to make ourselves available to prospective clients is blogging. We wrote over 125 Hackard Law Blog posts in 2015 and we've already written over forty blog posts in 2016 - and it is only early March.
We get ideas for our blog posts from real life circumstances of estate and probate litigation cases, with some of them from right here in Rancho Cordova. Of course we are careful to change facts and circumstances so that the particularities of any one client's case are not mirrored in or otherwise identified in our blogs. That said, we have such a wide variety of cases that we do see facts or fact patterns often repeat themselves. We regularly cover Alzheimer's disease, dementia, Will Contests, probate and estate administration, financial elder abuse, probate litigation, undue influence and capacity issues.
Estate and trust disputes are made up of everyday life events and everyday people encountering those events. Clients that need Hackard Law's services are not particularly interested in the history of the law or the legislature's latest effort to regulate us - they want to know how we can help them. We keep our focus on protecting our clients. We have to be more than just good at what we do, and we consistently strive for the top standard of excellence in both our ethics and legal skills.
Our law firm is located at Mather Field, an area that was converted from its original status as a military air base to a mixture of public and private uses. While we serve clients throughout California, even some people from foreign countries with estate interests in California, we are particularly proud to serve our Rancho Cordova neighbors. If you need a probate litigation attorney at the top of the game, call Hackard Law today at 916-313-3030.
