Comprehensive Approach to Estate Planning

When you work with our firm, you can be sure that your individual or family estate plan is completely customized to your changing needs and long-term goals.

The experienced legal team at our firm helps clients realize their goals and protect their loved ones, using documents such as:

  • Estate Planning for Second Marriages - If you are getting remarried, whether because of divorce or the death of your spouse, it is important to update your estate plan and the legal paperwork involved. This allows you to feel more at ease in knowing that your current spouse is included in your estate plan and that your future is more accurately prepared.
  • Estate Tax Planning - No matter how big or how small your estate in Fairfax may be, it is always beneficial to discuss your tax options with a qualified probate lawyer. Our legal team can provide you with extensive and up-to-date knowledge in the law and help you best protect your money and estate.
  • Pet Trusts - If you become disabled or pass away, we understand the importance of keeping your pets safe and well-protected. By creating a pet trust with an experienced estate planning attorney, you are given the chance to leave money behind for the proper care and safety of your loving and very loyal companion.
  • Powers of Attorney - By creating a power of attorney, you are making things easier for both you and your loved ones. This legal document appoints someone to make important decisions for you if you become unwilling or unable to do so. If you become incapacitated, a power of attorney immediately puts someone in charge of your decisions and eliminates your family from having to go through the lengthy court process.
  • Trusts - This type of legal document is used to keep your valuable assets protected. Our legal team can help you understand your options and create the Trust that best suits your needs. Now is the time to establish a Trust that protects your assets and holds them for the benefit of your family members and loved ones.
  • Trust Administration - Trust administration is a process that is handled by an appointed Trustee. The Trustee is held responsible for managing the assets in the Trust and making sure that they are properly distributed to the beneficiaries. A Fairfax attorney can guide you through the process and make sure that you accurately perform your Trustee duties.
  • Wills - This legal document is used to keep your loved ones and estate protected once you pass away. It serves as a written set of instructions that reflects your last wishes and who you want your property distributed to. By creating this legal document with a Fairfax County lawyer, you can better prepare for the future and make sure that your last wishes are adhered to.
