There are times in life when we can feel blindsided or left behind. In estate and probate litigation, this can be especially true - someone has wrongfully taken family property or trust assets, leaving you empty-handed and violating your beneficiary rights.
As a probate litigation attorney who represents clients in the East Bay and throughout California, I've witnessed these tragic stories firsthand. My clients tell me how they and their loved ones have been exploited, and they need someone with the strength, know-how and experience to fight for them. That's our mission at Hackard Law - to protect our clients from further harm and begin the process of recovery.
With over forty years of experience as a probate litigation lawyer, I've encountered all sorts of cases, from the complex and contentious to simple and straightforward. At Hackard Law, we're up to the challenge - we like tough cases where we can hold wrongdoers accountable and make them pay. As an attorney, I'm called to be an advocate for my clients and serve their best interests.
Many of these estate and trust fights have been in the East Bay, and I can tell you that the best moments in my professional life are when I can make a positive difference for my client - keeping them safe by removing a bad trustee or stopping a perpetrator of elder financial abuse.
Hackard Law attorneys regularly represent clients in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties, including cities like Fremont, Oakland and Walnut Creek. Since trust and probate lawsuits can be expensive, we are available to work on a contingency fee basis. Such fees are negotiated between the client and the law firm and disbursements and costs are addressed in the attorney-client agreement. The essence is that our attorney's fees are collected if and when we obtain recovery for our client. If you need an advocate to stand and fight for you, you can call us at Hackard Law: 916-313-3030. We'll be glad to listen to your story and see how we can best help you.
