Thanksgiving 2018 | Where to Volunteer & Donate in Sacramento


Thanksgiving 2018.jpgThanksgiving is right around the corner, and it's a perfect reminder to be grateful for all our blessings. It's also an opportunity to spread your good fortune and donate to those who are less fortunate in our community. We're already getting close to the Christmas holidays, and the best way to begin the season is in helping those less fortunate. You can deliver a turkey and canned foods to a food drive, volunteer your time in a food kitchen downtown, or even donate online.

Legal Marketing to Potential Clients | Michael Hackard

Legal Marketing to Potential Clients | Michael HackardA few friends and colleagues have expressed interest in having me talk about legal marketing - a subject that I both enjoy and regularly participate in. We should start with a little history. I became a lawyer in December 1976. At that time lawyers were generally prohibited from publicizing themselves or their law firms in newspapers, magazines, radio or television. It was expected that a lawyers reputation could only grow with experience and community involvement - an obvious advantage to those who had been in the legal profession for many years. Advertising rules began to change in June 1977 with the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark decision of Bates v. State Bar of Arizona. I've followed the effects of Bates since my very first year of law practice.

The Golden State Killer | Justice for Victims

The Golden State Killer | Justice for VictimsThis week Californians learned some incredible news - the case of the Golden State Killer, also known as the East Area Rapist or Original Night Stalker, has broken wide open. And it's been a long time coming - the Golden State Killer terrorized the state from the mid-1970s to 1986. During that period, this serial predator killed at least 12 people and raped upwards of 50 across the length of California, from Sacramento and the Bay Area to Santa Barbara and Orange County.

A Christmas Carol | Lessons in Kindness

A Christmas Carol | Lessons in KindnessMost of us are familiar with Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, a timeless classic for the Christmas season. Maybe we read the story at some point, or we've seen a film or theatre version of the work that Dickens wrote in 1843. After all these years, why does A Christmas Carol still resonate with us, no matter our walk of life? I think it has something to do with love, family, and our common humanity.
