Serving families through all stages of life since 2002
Your legacy is our specialty.
From the very beginning, Virginia Estate & Trust Law, PLC has focused on estate planning, estate and trust administration, and fiduciary services—which means our firm’s resources are dedicated exclusively to planning and carrying out your legacy. Whether crafting your estate plan to fit your unique goals or executing those plans with technical skill and sensitivity, we tailor our services to you. Our attorneys and “trust and estate” administrators are experienced in devising creative solutions to help our clients achieve their goals.
Our Focus areas
The best time to make a plan for your loved ones is today. Our experienced team will help you define your goals for the future and turn your “wishes” into concrete plans.
Settling an estate can be an overwhelming process. Our team has years of experience guiding families through the “many steps and potential traps” in a sensitive and expedient manner. Where appropriate, we can relieve families of the burden by serving as executor ourselves.
Managing a trust is rarely simple. As a professional fiduciary, we embrace complexity, thoughtfully solving problems with the objectivity of a neutral party. Our team can also serve in an advisory to trustees.
PROFESSIONALS, Want to bring us onto your team?
For two decades, we have routinely collaborated with investment advisors, accountants, financial planners, and other professionals whose clients need guidance in the area of estates and trusts.
“Because we offer fiduciary services in addition to estate planning, our clients know we will be there for the long term.”
—Derek Smith, founder
