MH: Hello, I'm Mike Hackard; I'm the chair of Hackard Law, a law firm focusing on estate, trust and elder financial abuse litigation in California's major urban areas. This is Hackard Law's first podcast, It Starts Here. This is a July 2017 podcast featuring John Long, the business manager of Hackard Law. We're going to discuss how an estate, trust and elder abuse financial litigation firm runs, and John is very well qualified to speak to this. So, John, welcome.
The year is 1992. I am in my 16th year of law practice. My career is fulfilling, and it brings great financial rewards. My partners and I own one of Sacramento's preeminent land use law firms. European travel is at least an annual event, and I own a pressurized twin-engine airplane for more local travel. We entertain and often hold political and charitable fundraisers at our home. Our children are doing well. We love our home and neighborhood.
