Virginia Wills, Trusts & Estates
Virginia Wills, Trusts & Estates, PLC

Virginia Wills, Trusts & Estates is a Virginia law firm, located in the Pantops Mountain area of Charlottesville. Attorneys Tom Nolan and Wendall Winn and an experienced staff provide legal services and advice in three distinct areas:

  1. Estate Planning:
    Planning the transfer of wealth through wills, trusts, and other strategies.
  2. Estate Administration:
    Settling a decedent’s estate under the terms of the decedent’s last will and testament and revocable living trust, consistent with Virginia’s probate laws and the federal tax system.
  3. Adoptions:
    Guiding adoptive parents through the legal steps required to complete an adoption.

The transfer of wealth from generation to generation involves complex matters of probate, taxation, and family relations. We are expert planners and draftsmen. We craft thoughtful, personalized, and comprehensive planning documents designed to preserve wealth, avoid unnecessary taxation, efficiently distribute inheritances to their intended recipients, and preserve harmony among family members.

Guiding You to Family Harmony is the theme that underlies much of what we do for our clients. In planning and administering estates, strategies to promote family harmony are just as important as helping our clients navigate through probate and tax issues. We strive to treat each client not only with professional competence, but also with kindness and concern. We never lose sight of the fact that the matters we have been entrusted to handle are deeply personal and confidential. We honor our clients’ expectations that we treat the ‘privileged glimpses’ into their lives with sensitivity.

Our Pantops Mountain location is convenient to all parts of Charlottesville, Albemarle, and Central Virginia.
