Will Lawyer in Fairfax

Virginia Estate Planning Lawyer

Wills and trusts are the foundation of any solid estate plan. These documents lay out in very specific ways how your property, wealth and assets will be handled after your death. Not only are these documents strong tools for dictating how your property will be distributed, they can also help guide you through some of the challenges you may face later in life.

At the Law Office of Richard L. Downey, located in Fairfax, Virginia attorney Richard L. Downey works with clients from all walks of life and all income levels to create wills and trusts that achieve their estate planning goals. To schedule your consultation with our lawyer, call us toll free at 1-866-491-8319 or locally at 703-763-4067.

The Power of Wills

Estate planning is a broad term that means creating a strategy to protect your vision of the future. Depending on your needs, the complexity of your estate and your wishes, our estate planning lawyer can employ several types of documents to meet your specific needs.

If you just want to draft a simple will that broadly begins the process of sketching your future goals, Richard L. Downey will help you understand every detail and get them right. We can also build off that basic model to employ a wide array of tools, such as:

  • Trusts : testamentary trusts, irrevocable living trusts, special needs trusts
  • Advanced medical directives and living wills
  • Guardianship provisions

The goals of every individual are as unique as the path that got them to where they are in life. We are committed to building a plan that matches your needs, your desires and your plans. Whether you are a small family living in the Fairfax suburbs, a small business owner, a military officer or an executive with significant assets and complex investments, we have 30 years of proven experience helping clients assess their goals and create workable estate plans.

Schedule a Consultation to Begin Planning for the Future

People find plenty of reasons to put off drafting or revising wills and trusts. Unfortunately, we have seen what procrastination can mean for surviving family members trapped in estate litigation or engaged in bitter family disputes.

Help protect your spouse, your children and other heirs from future hardship to make their heartache even worse. Contact our office today online or by phone at 703-763-4067 to schedule an appointment to discuss how the power of wills can be put to work for you.
