What do you do when you find out your elderly loved one was subject to exploitation that resulted in the wrongful taking of estate or trust assets? Under California law that's called elder financial abuse, and you should act quickly to prevent the abuser from causing more harm. That's why beneficiaries facing trust litigation turn to Hackard Law - we're dedicated to stopping perpetrators of elder financial abuse and recovering what rightfully belongs to victims and their families.

Over just the past few years, estate and trust lawsuits in our state have been transformed by a powerful game-changer: the Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act. This new law in the California Probate Code enables you to pursue a wrongdoer for elder financial abuse in civil court. For victims and their families, that means that you are legally entitled to recovery should a judge or jury find a preponderance of evidence against the abuser. Not only that, but the abuser can also be held liable for additional damages and attorney's fees. Telling your story to a jury can be important - you have the opportunity to show what happened to your elderly loved one and the effects suffered: financial, emotional and even physical. Most wrongdoers will seek out a settlement before reaching trial - they know that their actions won't stand under the scrutiny of a jury of their peers.

Hackard Law is on the cutting edge of probate and trust litigation in California - we're game-changers who hold predators to account. Financially exploiting the most vulnerable members of our communities should never be tolerated. We represent clients throughout the state, including in Sacramento, Los Angeles, the Bay Area and San Diego, and we are able to pursue contingency cases under the right circumstances and in accord with California law. If you are up against a situation of elder financial abuse and your beneficiary rights have been violated, call us today: 916-313-3030. We want to hear your story and see how we can help you.
