About Our Firm | Hackard Law | Estate & Probate Litigation

Building Relationships One Case At A Time

Hackard Law is an estate, probate and trust litigation law firm that represents clients throughout Sacramento and Northern California. Led by 40-year legal veteran Michael Hackard, the Hackard Law team is dedicated to serving clients and protecting their interests.

How does one choose a law firm to entrust with a multimillion-dollar estate, a seven-figure real estate deal or a personal injury lawsuit following a life-changing accident? It’s a question that we ask at Hackard Law every day.

One way or another, we always end up at the same starting point: a firm-wide commitment to every client that makes it evident we are engaged in our work, empathetic with the client’s situation and intent on producing the best possible outcome.

If you are just meeting us, there are a few telltale signs that we live up to the high standards that we set for ourselves — for starters, our 30-plus years as a firm serving individuals and businesses in Greater Sacramento and surrounding counties in a broad array of practice areas. That kind of staying power doesn’t come to those who settle for mediocre performance. We believe in better.

The client testimonials that we have collected over those three decades are also gratifying. The Internet era supports the simple truth that the voice of the customer is one of the most effective and trusted marketing tools available to a business. We proudly share a handful of our clients’ comments on this site.

“If I need a lawyer who knows how to storm the hill and win almost any battle, it is Mike Hackard. I have witnessed this time and time again over the 32 years I have known him.” — Dave, an estate planning client

Our attorneys work with clients in a number of situations that are highly emotional such as placing an elderly parent in a nursing home or grieving over the loss of a loved one who was killed in an accident. We emphasize the human touch, make ourselves readily available throughout a case and encourage clients to maintain contact with us once their case is resolved.

What we have discovered over the past three decades is that when you build a business the right way, you end up building relationships that mean so much more.

We welcome the opportunity to meet with you during a free consultation to review the facts of your case and recommend the best course of action. We work with clients in Greater Sacramento and throughout much of Northern California. Contact us to schedule a meeting.
