California estate, trust and elder financial abuse litigation involves fights - it's that simple. These cases are contested - the lawsuits are emotional and hard fought. Wrongdoers don't give up ill-gotten gains easily. I know this because the vast majority of our law practice involves the representation of aggrieved heirs, beneficiaries and victims of elder financial abuse. We're currently litigating in more than twenty California counties.
We need another lawyer. There are far more prospective clients seeking our representation than our capacity to serve. We must be measured in what cases we take. We want to serve more clients while both maintaining and optimizing the quality of our work. This is not easily done. The bottom line: The lawyer that we want needs litigation experience and a burning desire to seek justice for our clients from juries.
Mark Twain famously said that, "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog." We need someone who has lots of fight in the dog.
I get three to five phone calls or emails per day from prospective clients. I hear stories from heirs, beneficiaries, financially abused elders and from their children. These cases call out for justice - justice not easily gained. Thefts from estates, isolation of elders by addicted children, near deathbed changes to wills or trusts brought by the undue influence of caregivers, and wrongful property transfers from Alzheimer's or dementia patients to an undue influencer are part and parcel of a plaintiffs' estate and trust litigation practice. If you are a lawyer and think that you've got enough "fight in the dog" to advocate for aggrieved elders and their heirs, give us a call at Hackard Law - 916 313-3030.
