Free Legal Consultation*
For new clients, a legal assistant or other staff member in our firm will intake your case information. If additional information is required to determine if we can assist you with your case, we may offer a free consultation by an attorney to gather more information. A free consultation typically does not include legal advice, is offered only in our sole and absolute discretion, and does not mean that you have retained our firm as legal counsel. Only a written document provided to you by our firm describing our representation and executed by a managing attorney at our firm will establish an agreement by our firm to provide you legal services.

Virginia Durable Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is the legal authorization by one person for another (agent) to act on their behalf. This authorization, however, ends at the death or incapacity of the individual granting such authorization. A Durable Power of Attorney means that the legal authority to act on another's behalf continues after the incapacity or death of the individual granting such authorization. Durable power of attorney can range from decisions relating to property or health care issues. Additionally, a well written durable power of attorney specifies the amount of authority your agent is permitted; however, it is important to note that these rights vary from state to state.

Virginia Health Care Directive

This document is also often referred to as a 'Living Will' and operates to provide information on an individual's choices regarding life-sustaining treatment in the event of terminal illness or permanent unconsciousness. This can be an extremely valuable part of an estate plan and is often paired with a Durable Power of Attorney for health care.

Virginia Burial Directive

A Burial Directive outlines the way by which the decedent would like their remains or body to be handled after the decedent's death. This can include information about where you would like to be buried or if you wanted to be cremated. Additionally, many religions outline specific steps and procedures for burial and these steps can be memorialized in a Burial Directive. A comprehensive estate planner will be sure to include a Burial Directive in order to ensure that the decedent receives the burial honoring their wishes and choices.
