We've all been there - sometimes it seems like life throws us one curve ball after another. Even when it's not our fault, the circumstances seem to conspire against us. In Los Angeles estate and trust litigation disputes, the wrongdoing of one bad actor - whether it is a relative or an interloper - can put the well-being of an entire family in jeopardy. The situation looks desperate, and that's why abused trust beneficiaries and estate heirs turn to Hackard Law for a fighting chance. When the chips are down, we are here to safeguard client interests and help in attaining recovery.
Over my four decades of experience, I've come across all sorts of probate litigation cases across the state - the good, the bad and the ugly. However complex or tense a case may be, it's my job to apply the basic facts to California law and show how my client's rights have been violated. From there, our mission resembles a search-and-rescue operation: we identify trust assets and property that needs to be recovered, whether through mediation and settlement or a jury trial in civil court. When I meet with my LA-area clients, they've told me how I helped bring them hope for the future, and to me that's one of the most rewarding aspects of being a trust litigation attorney.
Estate and trust lawsuits in Los Angeles come about for various reasons, including family conflicts, undue influence by a child or neighbor, or even elder financial abuse. Often victims and their families will be blindsided by a sudden and unexpected turn of events. Perhaps a wrongdoer has managed to transfer a house into their name, or maybe a bad trustee has gained control of an elder's financial accounts. We're experienced in how to deal with these situations and what legal tools to use so that a wrongdoer will be held accountable.
If you're a Los Angeles estate heir or trust beneficiary and you feel that the chips are down, you can contact us at Hackard Law. We can arrange to represent clients on a contingency fee basis so that we are paid only if and when we attain recovery for you. Such fees are negotiated between the client and the law firm and disbursements and costs are addressed in the attorney-client agreement. We make certain that our fee agreements conform to the legal and ethical rules applicable to contingency fees. Call us today at 213-357-5200. We look forward to seeing how we can help you.
