When dealing with the legal areas of wills, probates, trusts and estates, the attorneys of Hunter Law Firm have compassion, a listening ear, and an understanding of your needs, in addition to our legal knowledge and experience. For over two decades, our highly qualified team of attorneys has carefully looked out for the best interests of clients in Virginia.
Will, trust, and estate laws deal with the passing of property, assets and possessions of a person to his or her heirs upon death. A death in the family is always a painful and difficult time. It is therefore imperative that at the time of a death these matters have already been handled.
When preparing your will, our attorneys discuss your wishes with you, at length, to ensure that your intended heirs get exactly what you wish to leave them, and avoid any delay in distribution. Our asset protection lawyers review your personal and business situation and help you decide if any legal complications might arise during the probate process. If complications are predicted, our team of lawyers develop a plan to help avoid issues through estate planning, especially in the case of business owners.
