Fairfax Estate Planning

Building the Future You Want

You should determine how your estate should pass, rather than a probate judge deciding how your estate will be distributed under Virginia's intestate succession statute.

At the Law Office of Richard L. Downey in Fairfax, Virginia, we understand that no one wants to make hard decisions about estate planning, particularly not when you can postpone it until tomorrow. But, consider what happens if you run out of tomorrows and fail to create a will or trust.

  • Will your family find themselves in conflict because of decisions you didn't make?

  • Will your property be distributed to the people who deserve it?

  • Will your minor children be cared for as you wish?

  • Will your medical wishes be met if you are permanently incapacitated?

You make a choice every day. Either you choose to build a future for yourself, your family and your estate to meet your wishes, or you choose not to. Call our firm today at 703-273-8800 to arrange your consultation.
