The Wolf at the Door: Ep. 19 | Basics of Estate Litigation Strategy

The Wolf at the Door: Ep. 19 | Basics of Estate Litigation StrategyHello, 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 is now available for purchase on Amazon.com. This is episode 19, where I cover the basics of litigation strategy in estate and trust disputes.

When you hire an attorney and resolve to act against a perpetrator of elder financial abuse, the lines of battle are drawn. These disputes are always contentious - families are divided by accusations of wrongdoing, and at times lifelong relationships suffer irreparable harm.

The harsh reality of estate and trust lawsuits is that there are winners and losers, and neither side comes out of the ordeal 100 percent unscathed. It's important to have a battle mindset for litigation. A successful litigation strategy will still meet complex obstacles, but its concept is simple. President Ronald Reagan said it best: "We win, they lose." This doesn't mean that even an excellent attorney can always win 365 days a year, but I expect to win.

Commitment to excellence shows. In estate, trust, and probate litigation, I'm not around to be a law professor. I'm here to fight for my clients and protect their interests. Strategy for a lawyer translates to effective advocacy for victory and justice for abused beneficiaries.
