We recognize the importance of securing your estate and your family’s future and we are here to provide you with trustworthy and easy to understand guidance and advice.
Our dedicated lawyers can gladly assist you with the following aspects of estate planning —
- Wills — Creating a last will and testament is one of the most important steps in estate planning. This document explains what will become of your property and assets after you pass away. In addition, it describes your last wishes, such as who will look after your children and whether your remains should be cremated. An experienced lawyer can answer your in-depth question about wills.
- Advanced Medical Directives — If you become disabled and are unable to communicate with the outside world, advanced medical directives explain what medical procedures should be given or withheld. Additionally, you may appoint a person to act as your agent for all health care related decisions.
- Financial Powers of Attorney — A financial power of attorney is a written document that allows you to appoint a person to act on your behalf regarding personal, financial and business-related matters.
Asset protection in Virginia
Without asset protection, you could lose everything. A wills and trusts lawyer can explain to you that asset protection can allow you to move non-exempt assets in such a way that they become exempt, thus protecting them from future claimants and creditors. Asset protection is a preventative measure. Our team of skilled and knowledgeable lawyers can review your property and assets and use a variety of strategies to protect them — including trusts and LLCs.
