Estate Planning

It is important to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of your estate upon your death or in the event of your incapacity. Estate Planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of your estate in an orderly and intended manner in an effort to minimize taxes and other expenses. It may also include designating guardians for minor children. A well designed and implemented estate plan can reduce the risk of family disagreement and protect beneficiaries against foreseeable risks. Documents to consider are Trusts, Will, Medical Directive, Durable General Power of Attorney and Transfer of Death Deed. Schedule an appointment for a free consultation.

Probate Administration

Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person by resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under the valid will, or if no will exists, under Virginia State law. A probate court decides the validity of the deceased’s will; appoints an executor or administrator of the estate when administration is required; and adjudicates the interests of heirs and other parties who may have claims against the estate. It may sound daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. We can walk with you every step of the way and help make the process less stressful.
