01

Wills

When a person dies without a valid Last Will and Testament, their assets pass by intestate succession to heirs pursuant to state law, which may be contrary to the decedent's ultimate wishes. To avoid this outcome, it is important to consult with a Virginia attorney to draft a Will for you that can be specifically customized to reflect your needs and desires. 

 

 

 

03

Advanced Medical Directives

Advance Medical Directives are important legal documents that allow a person who is no longer able to make decisions for themselves, due to illness or incapacity, to specify what actions should be taken regarding their health. They also give an agent of your choosing the authority to make medical decisions on your behalf, should you be unable to do so.

 

 

02

Specific and General Power of Attorneys

A Power of Attorney allows an individual to act on behalf of another person. They can be limited to a specific action or contain a broad range of general powers. Adding durability language to a power of attorney permits your agent to act on your behalf in the event you become incapacitated or unable to make your own decisions.
