How Do I Draft A Last Will & Testament?

How do I draft a last will and testament? 

 A last will and testament is a document detailing how you would like your assets distributed after your death. More importantly for many people, a will can also contain language stipulating who you would like to serve as guardian for your minor children after your death. Without a will your assets will be distributed based upon provisions in the Virginia Code, which may not suit your needs. 

There are many nuances and details involved in preparing a will, so making sure to hire an attorney experienced in preparing wills is important to ensure that your will is enforceable and that it properly states your wishes. Our knowledgeable attorneys will guide you through the process and will draft a will for you specifically tailored to your needs.
