Probate & Estate Administration

Fairfax, Virginia, Probate Lawyer

Handling the Complex Nature of Probate & Estate Matters

Properly executing a will or administering an estate through probate can be a complicated task. An executor or administrator takes on heavy responsibilities that can become overwhelming without the assistance of an experienced attorney. At the Law Office of Richard L. Downey we represent executors, administrators, trustees and heirs through all stages of the probate process.

We can also litigate will contests, trust contests and inheritance disputes. We will protect your rights throughout probate either to make sure that your administrative duties are properly executed or to ensure that your rights as an heir are honored.
