The Wolf at the Door | Four Years On
- October 12, 2021 - Elder Financial Abuse,
I’m Mike Hackard at Hackard Law. We represent beneficiaries in estate, trust and elder financial abuse litigation throughout California.
It’s now been four years since my book on elder financial abuse, The Wolf at the Door, was published. In that time, we’ve taken major steps in raising awareness of elder exploitation and undue influence. I’ve been fortunate to discuss these topics with journalists, authors and hosts of radio shows and podcasts.
I’m honored that The Wolf at the Door received such a positive reception among readers and reviewers, and I’ve shared the book with thousands – clients, potential clients, and anyone seeking help in cases of fraud and estate theft.
Normal, everyday people need the tools that enable them to spot and prevent elder financial abuse. In a worst-case scenario, they’ll need an attorney who’s experienced in trust and estate battles. And that’s where I think The Wolf at the Door has made substantial progress in making this knowledge more widely available.
Our elderly loved ones are vulnerable, and it’s our duty to protect them from predators. When it comes to stopping elder financial abuse, forewarned is forearmed. I’m grateful for The Wolf at the Door’s impact, and I hope that it will continue to help families across America.
