About Maura Chandler


Virginia Estate Planning Firm

Maura Chandler
Client Services Associate

Maura is known at the office for her gentle spirit and sharp organizational skills. Before joining the Stapleton Elder Law team, Maura devoted over 20 years to teaching. She also started (and received accreditation for) a K-12 private school, later serving as the school’s principal. She earned an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education from Anna Maria College and a Master of Arts in Elementary Education from Worcester State College.

 Originally from Boston, Maura moved to Charlottesville in 1992 where she met her husband. They later relocated to Orlando where they could hear the Disney fireworks shows nightly. After 12 years in Florida, they returned to Charlottesville and the peace of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Together, Maura and her husband have two adult children. She enjoys crafting, camping, going to the beach, watching college football games, and playing with Bailey, her fur baby.

Thank you for your concern and help in updating our legal documents. Being able to sign the papers in your office was great.

The entire staff is compassionate to all aspects of dealing with the often times difficult and sensitive matters of estate planning and planning for your elder years. Top notch. Couldn’t be more satisfied.

Brian S.
Charlottesville, VA

Met when needed legal assistance for multiple family issues. Defined and proceeded to structure medical, trusts and will to protect wife, son, and grandchildren. Also, have amended my trust and feel it’s important to join the C.F.C. Plan [the Client and Family Care Plan] for other expected services.
You owe it to your beneficiaries to have your life’s/death’s plans defined.

Lovely, beautiful people. Jeannie is always friendly and pleasant and informative. The office has perfect lighting, and we’re always offered tea or coffee. The whole experience, though it could be a time of anxiety, becomes a very loving, relaxing experience. Who knew that taking care of our family’s future and “late” life business could be such a nurturing, caring experience?
