More than 29 years ago, Mr. Hudack started his career in residential and corporate real estate, managing transactions for companies like Fluor, Walmart, and Dial. In addition to negotiating, executing, and closing acquisitions for sales and leases, he worked as a national real estate consultant for Home Depot, Newell Rubbermaid, and Viad Corp. Most recently, he has served as corporate and litigation counsel to community associations throughout California. He earned his Juris Doctorate from Western State College of Law, magna cum laude, so he could expand his practice and use his talents to assist clients with business law, contract law, and real estate law services as well as estate planning matters.

Family comes first for Mr. Hudack. He is a dedicated family man who has enjoyed the company of his wife for almost 30 years. They have two grown children: an engineer and an aspiring lawyer who is at the top of her class. Their family also includes two Cockapoos and one Cavachon. In his spare time, he indulges in his passion for woodwork. Working with other woodworkers in the Corona area, he creates pieces for the children at the Royal Family Kids Camp. There they paint and assemble the pieces into different projects that instill in them a sense of pride when they take their completed work home.

It’s this dedication to community that drives Mr. Hudack in his law practice. You’re more than just another name to him. He understands that no two transactions are the same, so he takes the time to listen to your needs and help you accomplish your goals. You’ll never wonder what’s going on, as he keeps you informed through each step of the process and makes sure you understand each action he takes on your behalf.

Superior Lawyer
Joseph Hudack represented us against our HOA Board & their Attorney. We are the owners of a Condo in a Huge Condominium Complex in San Diego, CA. He wiped the floor with our HOA's Attorney & left her utterly speechless on every issue. Joseph is so well versed on ALL CURRENT CALIFORNIA HOA Regulations, & he proved they were in violation of our rights & they were forced to drop all allocations against us. WE WON!!! If you want to WIN - then you must choose this Lawyer!

Excellent estate lawyer, friendly and knowledgeable
Knowledgeable in his area of expertise; I needed a full package of estate planning to take care of my wife and kids should anything happen to me. It was fully comprehensive and at a fair price for the amount of work completed. I also had him take care of the trust for my mothers estate to follow with her wishes, even going the extra effort to accommodate a certain counties difficult requirements

HOA litigation
Joe Hudack came into an ongoing, contentious legal situation we were going through with our HOA. He helped facilitate a favorable conclusion for us and became a trusted legal mentor to us in the process. We highly recommend Mr. Hudack for any legal challenges or needs you may encounter.

Great attorney and person
Joe Hudack assisted my sister and I with our mothers estate. There were many circumstances that needed to be addressed and Joe offered us excellent guidance on how to resolve issues in a diplomatic manner. He provided expert legal advice regarding my mothers estate. My sister and I found Joe to knowledgeable, trustworthy, and easy to communicate with. Not only is Joe an excellent attorney he is a great person.

Look no further!
I really can't give a higher recommendation for attorney Joe Hudack, and would give him a 10 star rating if I could. Mr. Hudack has provided me with much needed legal advice and assistance in many areas including probate, bankruptcy, real estate and employment law. He has a broad base of legal knowledge, intellectual, wise, patient, and one of the most kind and generous persons I have had the pleasure of working with. Each time I seek his assistance, he always provides me with sound advice, patiently explains my options and provides me with sound judgement. He always makes himself available immediately and without delay, and I can count on Mr. Hudack's excellent critical thought process to guide me through any legal matter I find myself facing. If you are looking for an excellent attorney, look no further. Mr. Hudack is your man!

Estate Planning made easy.
Joe Hudack made this daunting task so easy! He is thorough, explains things in terms that the average person can easily understand and we never felt rushed in the process at all. Our estate plan was something that we put off for a long time because we were intimidated by the process and the cost. I'm so glad that when we finally decided to move forward that we were able to do that with Joe. He immediately put us at ease and made the entire process a very simple and affordable.

A problematic HOA Board
I was at an impasse with the HOA Board where I currently lived. I had been doing so many things to try and remedy the situations and problems I was experiencing, but nothing was coming to fruition. Several neighbors and myself were truly beginning to lose hope. And then I found Joe. He was a life saver. Joe was very clear and easy to work with from the start. I explained the problems and issues that we were experiencing and ever since having Joe represent me, those problems have ceased to continue. There is true progress being made with the HOA Board where I reside. I could not have asked for a better attorney or a better outcome.
