Trusts and Estates

Protecting your assets now and in the future

At Land, Carroll & Blair PC, we work hard to help our clients of all ages prepare for their future. Through the careful preparation of estate planning documents, including wills, trust agreements, powers of attorney and advance medical directives, we can help you control the disposition of your assets.

Don’t leave the distribution of your hard-earned assets to chance. If you happen to die without a valid will, Virginia law dictates how your estate will be distributed. Take the time now to meet with an experienced Virginia trusts and estates attorney and place the future of your estate in your hands.

Easing the administration of your loved one’s estate

After a loved one passes on, it is hard to maintain a focus on legal issues concerning that person’s estate. Estate administration requires a process that includes:

  • Proving in court that a deceased person’s will is valid
  • Identifying and preparing an inventory of the deceased person’s property
  • Appraising property
  • Filing accountings and obtaining approval of accountings by the court
  • Paying debts and taxes
  • Distributing property as directed by the will
  • Transferring title and ownership of assets to the proper beneficiaries

Let an experienced estate lawyer help you navigate your way through probate and estate administration.

When litigation becomes necessary

If you need to contest a will or face disputes in regard to a decedent’s estate, our firm’s litigators can ably represent you in court to vigorously defend and assert your rights. Our trial attorneys are ready to protect you in the event of a fiduciary’s (executor or administrator of an estate, or trustee) breach of trust.
