Probate, Trust, and Estate Administration in Virginia

Can you help me with probate?

The probate process is an added source of stress during an already difficult and painful time of loss. Stapleton Elder Law helps families navigate the estate administration process and often times even serves as executor of an estate. Our expertise will provide you with much needed support and guidance while avoiding disastrous mistakes.

Can probate be avoided?

The loss of a loved one brings about immeasurable heartache.  The probate process not only distracts your family from tending to their grief and one another, but is costly and time consuming.  With proper preplanning, probate can be avoided. Please contact our office to register for one of our informational workshops and learn what you can do to avoid probate.

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?

We’ve known Simon for the last 2-3 years he has worked with us to resolve a number of complex family issues. Simon’s manner is gentle, kind and reassuring; he instills confidence.

Jan B.
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.
