So it's May 2017. We're really busy here at Hackard Law. Our lawyers and paralegals are covering the multitude of tasks that are tied to estate, trust and elder financial abuse litigation. On any given day, one or more of us will be in a meeting with new clients, fielding phone calls from prospective clients, preparing for a mediation, attending a morning probate calendar, taking a deposition, sending and responding to discovery, traveling to one of California's urban Superior Courts or preparing for a multi-week jury trial.
The California Department of Aging projects that our elderly population is expected to grow more than twice as fast other age groups in California. This population growth among our seniors is reflected in the increasing incidence of elder financial abuse. Our laws provide some strong remedies for the abuse, but unfortunately the remedies may be too late - the horse is already out of the barn.
As we look forward, we see the growing need for serving California's baby boomers. I'm a baby boomer and I know that my generation needs to be served. We were once young and enthusiastic. Now we are older, and we should celebrate our lives that can be rich in family appreciation for things ignored earlier in life. We also need our warriors - those who will help to protect us from harm - financial and otherwise - as well as those who will shine a light of accountability on abusers.
That's our mission here at Hackard Law.
If you'd like to talk with one of us about an estate, trust, probate lawsuit or elder financial abuse case, then don't hesitate to contact us. We serve clients across California, including in Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Jose, Alameda and San Diego. Call us today at 916-313-3030. We'll be happy to speak with you.
