Our law firm is located right next to Sacramento’s Mather Airport, an airfield built during World War I as a pilot training base. Mather Air Force Base continued as a pilot and navigator training facility until the early ‘90s.
My dad was trained here as a P-38 pilot during the war. The airport now serves general aviation, air taxi services, airlines, and military traffic.
Our office has been here for 11 years. It’s nice to be away from the traffic of the city and yet be easily accessible to our region’s major courthouses.
We encourage you to like our video, subscribe to Hackard Law’s YouTube channel and leave a comment if you grew up on, or near an air force base and what your memories are. Have a good summer.
Now that our free Apple Watch contest is completed, we are pleased to announce the winner: contestant Samantha was chosen by our random comment picker software to receive the prize, a brand-new Apple Watch Series 5.
Congratulations to Samantha, and we’ll be sending you the watch shortly. We would also like to thank all of you who participated for your likes, comments and shares. We appreciate your participation, and make sure to be on the lookout for future contests by Hackard Law!

This is Sacramento, CA in June 2020. After the death of George Floyd on May 25, waves of protests erupted worldwide. Many businesses boarded their windows when violence broke out alongside protests. Some were forced to close because of looting. Others had to shut down due to COVID-19. We don’t know how many were boarded up because of looting or over the lockdown. The city is in shock. Many businesses cautiously reopen next to permanently-closed neighbors. Will Sacramento return to normal soon?
Today I was honored to speak to the West Sacramento Rotary Club on how to spot and prevent elder financial abuse. With our economy and society in an especially vulnerable state, the challenge of elder exploitation isn’t going away – and we need to be ready to tackle it head-on.
With its large population of senior citizens, California is a major flashpoint in this ongoing fight to protect our elderly loved ones. In my presentation I showcased ways to detect and stop wrongdoing drawn from my two books, The Wolf at the Door: Undue Influence and Elder Financial Abuse and Alzheimer’s, Widowed Stepmothers & Estate Crimes. The facts they share are more relevant than ever.
It was a pleasure speaking with West Sacramento’s Rotary C[...]
Robin Hood is a legendary outlaw lionized in English folklore, literature and movies. While a fictional character, folklore identifies Robin as a former soldier of the crusades. When he returns to England from battle, he finds his family dead, his lands confiscated, and England’s royalty rife with corruption.
Robin changes his life and his attitudes. He steals from the rich and gives to the poor. He is a criminal.
The people see this in a different light. Robin treats women, the poor, and common people with courtesy and respect. The people view his actions as a revolt against the existing authority. An authority drunk on power and privilege.
Historians identify the literary origins of Robin Hood as poetic expressions of popular a[...]
We’ve seen, if not experienced, protests. They have a particular cadence. “What do we want?” (Fill in the demand) “When do we want it? Now!”
So, six weeks into Governor Newsome’s statewide shelter order we’re seeing protests. Thousands of people protesting stay-at-home coronavirus restrictions. What we don’t see are, but only hear a little about, are the multi-billion-dollar industries seeking new coronavirus restrictions – restrictions against people who may have been civilly wronged during the pandemic.
California nursing homes and the California Assisted Living Association want restrictions from any administrative sanction or criminal or civil liability for any injury or death or loss allegedly resulting from the[...]

Over 200 million Americans are staying home – sheltering in place. Covid-19, the culprit behind our need to take cover, is capturing the world’s headlines.
And, we Americans, overwhelmed by minute-by-minute breaking news, want our questions answered. Headlines are not enough.
And, the first question is how does the Coronavirus impact our bodies. The answer to the question is better shown, than told.
So, thanks to the generosity of High Impact, a leading team of animators, forensic experts and physicians, this most important question is answered. High Impact is nationally known for assisting firms like Hackard Law in telling stories in ways that mere words cannot describe.
The leaders of High Impact freely share this video wi[...]
We’re nearing Christmas. It is a time of great joy. And, of course it has its own stresses. Over the years, I’ve made efforts to remember and somehow reflect on the magic of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
It helps to re-center the joy of the season. So, I’ll share some thoughts for us in this Christmas of 2019.
Everyone has value.
We are all children of God.
There is magic in seeing life as a child.
Our actions affect others.
We can transform ourselves in helping and loving others.
We all probably have a little Scrooge in us.
We can do better.
We can have joy.
We can share.
And, finally in the words of Tiny Tim, “God bless us, everyone.” Merry Christmas.
