Wills are a foundation of a good estate plan. They allow you to control how your assets are distributed upon your death. With a will you can name an executor, name a guardian for minor children, and bequeath assets to a friend, charity, or distant relative who would not inherit in the absence of a will.

A trust is created by the settlor, who transfers some or all of his or her property to a trustee. The trustee manages that property for the trust's beneficiaries. Often, a settlor acts as the trustee of their own trust during their life and appoints a successor trustee to manage the trust upon death. There are different types of trusts and they are created for various purposes, including probate avoidance.

Everyone can benefit from estate planning, it doesn't matter if they are young or old, rich or of modest means. We can sit down with you and help you establish an estate plan that will maximize your assets, provide the best tax savings, and leave a lasting legacy for the ones you love.

Power of Attorney
At some point in your life, it may become difficult to conduct some of your personal business which may be handled by a trusted relative or friend. For example, you may become injured or ill and incapable of handling your own affairs. In such cases, a limited or general power of attorney may be very useful to you.

Advance Medical Directives
It is important to think about what types of care and treatment you would and would not like to have. Advance directives allow you to communicate your wishes about health care before you are unable to speak for yourself. In Virginia, there are two types of advance directives: a health care power of attorney and a living will.
