Summer 2023 | Trust Litigation Heats Up
I’m Mike Hackard with Hackard Law. It’s early summer and all the things that summer is known for are underway. Swimming, travel, weddings, outdoor parties, and for some – summer school.
While summer brings family enjoyment, our attention to work issues goes on. Our work summer of ’23 has its own special challenges and rewards. Among them: Retention of high-level experts in science, financial forensics, medicine, and digital crime to assist in preparation of several high-damages fiduciary abuse cases that we’re currently handling.
Our practice continues to thrive in both Southern and Northern California contingency fee estate and trust litigation matters. The common failings that bring fiduciary challenges haven’t gone away.
Failures to distribute, account for, and properly gather trust and estate assets still ignite heir and beneficiary challenges to failed fiduciaries. Fiduciary self-dealing keeps generating its fair share of litigated cases.
While some cases seem destined to a protracted high-priced trial, many now take an earlier road to mediation – a process less pricey, timelier, and more participant controlled. I hope that you’re having a good summer.
For those that want to talk about a trust and estate dispute, we’re open this summer – and all year long. Call us at Hackard Law – 916 313-3030.
