Developing a plan for your estate is not just providing instruction on what to do with your assets after your death. A properly developed plan will provide for your needs both before and after death. Working with an attorney who focuses on estate planning and the ever-changing tax laws helps to ensure your plan is the most appropriate for your situation. Whether your circumstances require a “simple” estate plan or the use of more complex planning tools, we educate you as to why we are recommending a specific course of action to empower you in the decision-making process.
Our number one concern when it comes to working with those injured is that they get to focus on healing. We hope for the complete return to “normal” for each of our clients. As your counsel, we direct the insurance company to send all communications through our office, not only enabling you to focus on your recovery, but also preventing the adjuster from twisting your words against you. We take the time you need to heal and realize the full value of your damages from your injuries and take the burden of negotiating with the insurance company. Adjusters can be aggressive and, therefore, you may need an attorney experienced in dealing with the games they play. Let us help you recover by us taking on the fight with insurance company and the weight of collecting your medical records. If your specific case requires litigation, we make sure that you understand why and that you have the knowledge needed to make an informed decision before you accept any settlement.
At its core, probate is the official proving and recording of a will as the authentic and valid last will and testament of the deceased. As we commonly understand it, probate is the process of settling and distributing an estate. The laws of Virginia, as in all states, can be complicated regarding probate and estates. Oftentimes, a loved one just needs one consult to learn the probate process and is then able to proceed on his or her own. This is usually the case if the estate is relatively small and uncomplicated. For others, the assistance of an attorney throughout the process helps the administrator maneuver through the various issues that can arise. Whatever your need, our office is here to help.
Each business registered in Virginia must have a Registered Agent in Virginia to accept legal pleadings that may be served by the Sheriff or other process server. While business owners who are Virginia residents may serve as their own Registered Agent, many chose to have an attorney act in that capacity for a variety of reasons. From avoiding any business disruption or embarrassment in the service process to ensuring privacy of ownership, a third party acting as Registered Agent may be best for your business. If you are not a Virginia resident, then you must have an in-state Registered Agent for your business. We offer competitive rates and assist with ensuring that you promptly receive your annual statements from the State Corporation Commission and any other correspondence we receive for you.
