Committed And Compassionate Estate Planning And Probate Guidance

Often, people do not take the necessary steps to create a strong estate plan to protect their assets and their friends and family. Estate planning and the probate process that follows can be extremely daunting and confusing for anyone who has to deal with these issues. Thankfully, you do not have to deal with them by yourself.

My name is Jim Gilbert, and I am a Virginia estate planning and probate attorney who can help you both create a strong estate plan or resolve your probate issues after the death of a loved one. I understand the challenges that come with these legal needs, which is why I always strive to provide swift and satisfying resolutions for clients at my firm, Gilbert Law PC.

Your Estate Planning Needs

Estate planning is more than just deciding who gets what when you pass on. I can help you with the creation of your estate plan and updates to any estate planning tools, including:

  • Health care directives
  • Trusts and wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Guardianships

My goal in estate planning is to ensure that your loved ones are not left with any difficult questions when you are not able to answer them.

Probate Administration When You Need It

When a loved one like a spouse or parent passes on, overseeing their estate administration can be a significant emotional hardship. I can take care of the administration to save you time, money and energy in settling your estate with little effort on your own part. I can aid you with:

  • Paying off any debts of the estate
  • Dispersing any inheritances
  • Notifying any interested parties such as banks, insurance companies, and utility services
  • Disputes that arise during probate, even if they require litigation

Let me handle the hardships of probate administration while you focus on your mourning.
