The Wolf at the Door: Ep. 15 | Elder Financial Abuse Lawsuits

The Wolf at the Door: Ep. 15 | Elder Financial Abuse LawsuitsHello, I'm Mike Hackard. I'm the chair of Hackard Law, a law firm focusing on estate, trust and elder financial abuse litigation in California's major urban areas. I'm the author of The Wolf at The Door: Undue Influence and Elder Financial Abuse. The book will come out in early autumn. This is episode 15, where I address representing victims of elder financial abuse in civil lawsuits.

Elder financial abuse often leaves its victims feeling defenseless and lacking the means to pursue justice in a jury trial. An ethical trust litigation attorney will be proud to take up the cause of the defenseless and exploited. From my own experience, wronged beneficiaries tell me how they feel they've been stripped of power and funds, which makes any attempt at justice hopeless.

Where others might see despair, an accomplished litigator can often spot signs of hope. Neither I nor any other attorney can right every wrong or accomplish superhuman feats, but what is impossible to the inexperienced is, in fact, possible to the experienced professional. Mechanics are there to repair our cars, and doctors treat us for all kinds of conditions. While we don't expect either to work miracles, we prefer to have their training, experience, and wisdom in our corner. It's the same way with trust and probate litigators - victims of elder financial abuse should have a way to right the wrong and hold perpetrators accountable.

If you would like a free digital copy of the book when it comes out, email us at [email protected] I'm happy to share this book on this very important topic.
