The Very Best
We are seniors who were scammed! I called Brian Geremia after hundreds of calls requesting payment for a service we did sign up for. Brian was empathetic, knowledgeable and expedited our case. After a very short time Brian was in touch with the legal department of the company's attorney and advised them they had indeed committed "elder abuse". Thankfully, the non stop threatening phone calls subsided and we got back to our life. We are forever grateful to Brian Geremia for his determination and professional assistance and his kindness towards us.

Can't recommend him enough!
Working with Brian was a truly wonderful experience! He was very understanding and kind. We immediately felt safe and relaxed knowing we had him on our team. He answered every question we had...even when we asked them repeatedly. He never made us feel as if we were a bother or taking his time. He was always available. Brian is super knowledgeable about the fields he is in also. He knew everything that would happen every step the way and communicated those things clearly and professionally. He was calm too, in some of our most stressed, angry, and saddest moments, Brian was there with a reassuring attitude and an ear to listen. Family litigation is tough and having someone who is trustworthy, kind, understanding, smart, well spoken and always one step ahead was an absolute blessing. We can't recommend him enough!

Superb!
Trust litigation is a very sensitive area of Law considering all that is at stake when you have decided that you need to seek legal council it can feel very overwhelming. Hackard Law handled my case with the utmost professionalism and compassion as if I was part of there family. Brian was patient and took the time to listen and understand my case. He always returned my calls and messages promptly. He never dismissed any questions I had or concerns. And if I brought up aspects of my case that were not completely relevant or that could possibly draw the matter out further, Brian didn’t automatically agree and I felt that at all times he genuinely had my best interests at heart and I respected him tremendously for that. This is how it should be when you hire an Attorney. Because they are working to fight for you and you should feel that at all times your Attorney has your back. I always felt that way with Brian and Hackard Law. Mr Mike Hackard had even taken time on his Saturday to call me personally and really get to know the aspects of our family. Hackard Law genuinely made me feel like my case mattered to them. Even during this pandemic there attention to detail and respect to your time was absolutely superb. I had contacted several firms before them and had calls unanswered, was told they weren’t accepting new clients, etc. I stumbled upon Mike Hackards Trust Litigation informational videos and ads online and I gave them a call. My call was returned that same day and I was really anxious because I didn’t have a lot of money and I knew they were in the more elite class of Law Firms. To my surprise they worked with me to negotiate my contract so that both parties benefited and there was no doubt I made the right choice. Brian resolved my case swiftly and even when the other party resorted to a couple slight insults Brian stayed professional at all times. That always tells me the true character of a person and a business. They will fight for you not because they just want to win but because they know it’s the right thing to do and they will stand firm on those beliefs. For anyone trying to decide if Hackard Law is the right choice and for the reviews that may have not had a winning case I can say with utmost confidence it would not have been for there lack of effort. Not all cases are cut and dry and you don’t always win in life. But considering all that is at stake when you have to make the hard choice to hire an Attorney to represent you in a matter that almost certainly will cause families to be torn apart, I would choose Hackard Law Firm every time to be on my side! Thank you!

Forever Greatful!!!
Brian Geremia represented me when my sister and brother sued me for our Aunt's estate. I was literally devastating when I was notified of the suit. I called the office (Hackard Law) along with several others. From the first phone call to the last this company took care of me. I could not have asked for better representation. Brian is very compassionate and thorough he didn't miss anything. His anticipation of pretty much every move they made was spot on. I felt completely comfortable and secure all the way through the case. I did eventually will the case. I know I would not have had it not been for Brian and his team!!!!! I am forever grateful to Brian !!!

Brian is the best
Brian was referred to me by a relative and this referral turned out to be one of the best things to happen to me. He not only advised me, he became a friend. He and his team took time out of their days to do everything that was needed and we're not even in the same time zone. I'm in Atlanta and Brian is in California. I was beyond satisfied and I felt so confident having Brian and his team backing me. This guy is amazing, his team is amazing, and my family & I are forever grateful.

Trust
Brian was a great attorney to have for setting up my trust. I knew very little about the process and jargon, but Brian was excellent at explaining the details and next steps. I feel comfortable recommending his services for matters concerning your trust.

First-rate work on transfers of family real estate
My family hired Brian to handle several transfers of ownership in a family-owned property, which needed to be done under tight deadline due to a change in tax law. He got us in under the wire despite owners needing to mail in notarized documents from different countries, and the need to refile a few documents with a county office that turned out to be very particular about formatting. Plus he stayed calm throughout and kept us grounded. First rate work in both substance and style.

Excellent trust, estate and elder law attorney
Brian took on a case that had been mishandled by prior attorneys. We had a situation with a major bank as the corporate trustee and they were charging excessive fees, performing very little service, and failing to follow the terms of the trust. Brian and his colleagues developed a clear and understandable strategy, stuck to the schedule and kept me informed as they navigated the probate courts to replace the horrid corporate trustee and clarify terms of the trust. I highly recommend him and will use him for any estate or elder law issues.

Very Trustworthy and Dependable
I would definitely recommend Brian Geremia to anyone needing a lawyer. He was very professional, courteous, and absolutely knowledgeable in how to tackle the problem for the betterment of the case. He represented my mother in an elder financial abuse case with outstanding results. I couldn't have asked for a better law firm or attorney. He treated my mother and I as friends rather than just a client. My opinions were always valued and my doubts reassured. I would call Mr. Geremia at his office during late business hours not expecting him to answer the phone, but sure enough surprisingly he would pick up the phone. Very dependable, caring, and most of all, a highly skilled lawyer who knows the law. I would like to thank Mr. Geremia and his law firm for an excellent job and I would definitely use their service again if the need arise.

Very professional and trustworthy
Mr. Geremia is a very knowledgeable and competent attorney. He and his staff were very kind and accommodating, not to mention patient, with me during a difficult time in my life and made the process of preparing the necessary estate and living trust documents for me as easy as possible. I give them the highest of recommendations.

Excellent Settlement thanks to Brian!
Brian was incredibly detail oriented and helped uncover holes in the deposition of the parties we were litigating against. He also helped build built a winning strategy that created enough reasonable doubt in the defendant's mind, that we were able to go into mediation and get a very significant settlement. Brian was also highly responsive on email, and my family and I owe Brian and his team a debt of gratitude.
