Estate Planning

Plan For Your Future

Everyone should have an estate plan. It is your way of making decisions about how your assets will be distributed when you pass away. Through proper estate planning, you choose people to make healthcare and financial decisions on your behalf if you are unable.

Drafting A Will

In a will, you outline and state how you want your assets distributed. Should you choose to live without a will—or any other estate planning documents—you will have died intestate. Your assets will pass through Virginia’s intestacy laws rather than your wishes.

The Validity of Handwritten and Oral Wills

We emphasize that the best way to know that your will is valid is to work with an estate planning attorney. In some cases, handwritten wills can also be valid in Virginia. Oral wills, however, are valid only in extremely limited circumstances.

Advance Directives

What will happen if you become incapacitated and cannot make decisions about your health care? We craft advance medical directives for our clients for that purpose. These documents allow our clients to explain their medical wishes in the event of incapacity.
