Most people will agree that the law must be accessible, intelligible, clear and predictable. We expect this as a society.
And, when not met we share an unsettling concern about the present and the future. This is surely a time of unsettling concern.
My law firm litigates estate, trust and elder financial abuse cases. We, like most of society, rely upon the rule of law. Rules protect elders and their families from wrongdoing. When violated, rules are applied to effectuate justice and recovery of losses.
This is not vigilante justice. This is not self-help. It is a judicial process hundreds of years in the making. The pandemic and its offshoots, some predictable, some not, have created chaos.
One example among many: The California[...]
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!
We hope you have a beautiful summer, and remember to visit somewhere amazing.

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[...]
