I’m Mike Hackard from Hackard Law. We’re known for vigorously prosecuting California estate, trust, and financial elder abuse litigation. It’s not all that we do.
We often represent underdogs in cases that others might not bring. Victims of childhood sexual assault claims are surely the underdogs. Their voices have often been silenced and their rights ignored.
Some changes in California law have expanded the timeline in which these cases can be brought. We’re civilly prosecuting several of these childhood sexual assault cases – cases in which the abuse occurred even decades ago.
These aren’t trivial matters. And, from society’s perspective, there are far too many of them. Too many innocent people who’ve endured suff[...]
I’m Mike Hackard with Hackard Law. Over many decades of law practice, I’ve had one goal – to build an estate, trust and financial elder abuse plaintiffs’ firm that my own family would be proud to hire.
Los Angeles is a major part of this. I handled my first Los Angeles case over 40 years ago. It’s a little different now. It has a few million more people. But it continues to be Los Angeles - a city ranked as the fourth-richest city in the world, the entertainment capital of the world, and some of the best weather in the country. Families facing significant estate and trust litigation challenges often don’t know who to call for legal support. That’s where we can help. Families count.

Hackard Law: Attorneys Making a Difference.
I’m Mike Hackard of Hackard Law. I’m the “gray hair” of our law firm. Proverbs says that “The glory of young men is their strength, but the splendor of old men is their gray hair.”
I like that. It’s good to have some splendor to go with the gray hair. It’s also good to have strength that goes with our younger lawyers. Brian Geremia, Sarah Cullen, Dave Jones, and Heath Langle certainly provide that.
I like stories. That’s pretty clear from our YouTube channel. There are a lot of stories in our videos. This is another. A little different. Inspired by music.
I like all kinds of music. As a part of this we’ve been giving away a new guitar every few months to one of our subscribers in a giveaway contest. This is a pl[...]

I’m Mike Hackard of Hackard Law. Hackard Law is working to become the leading estate, trust, and financial elder abuse litigation law firm in California. This is not a small order.
It means that we work with high internal expectations. With commitments to overcome adversity. To take the long view. To deal in performance. To understand that we’re a work in progress.
We most often represent people who’ve sought out lawyers not so much by choice, but by necessity. They might feel coerced, pressured, and intimidated by an overreaching heir, beneficiary, or trustee.
Their elderly parents may have been cheated out of real or personal property. Maybe a caregiver unduly influenced the maker of a trust to leave everything to the careg[...]
I’m Mike Hackard with Hackard Law. Fifty years ago, I was a senior at Sac State – now known as California State University, Sacramento. I was Student Body President.
Our Associated Students sponsored an October 1971 Joan Baez concert. It was memorable then. On reflection, it’s still memorable.
Tickets were $2.00. A capacity crowd of 12,000 attended.
Her songs are part of our history. They captured the era. They told stories. They evoked emotion. She put a human face to war, injustice, grief. In her words from her song, “Blessed Are,” “What comes to one must come to us all.”
This message resonates, resounds, and rings true. No matter our station in life.
It does help to put ourselves in the shoes of another. To r[...]
