Tom is the lone attorney at Virginia Wills, Trusts & Estates and founded the firm on January 1, 2004. He and his experienced staff provide legal services and advice related to estate planning, the probate system, the settling of estates, estate and gift taxation, and infant and adult adoptions. He has practiced law in Charlottesville since 1987. He can be reached at 434-817-4001 or via email at nolan@vawills.com.

Tom received his B.A. (1978) from the University of Virginia and his J.D. (1982) from the University of Virginia School of Law. He is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel and a Fellow of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys. He is a frequent guest speaker at the Virginia Bar Association’s Advanced Estate Planning and Administration Seminar. His most recent presentation (April 2013) focused on the Rules Governing Lawyer Advertising and the Solicitation of Clients.

Tom was Chair of the Wills, Trusts & Estates Section of the Virginia Bar Association when the Virginia General Assembly passed the Uniform Trust Code (2005), and he remains active on the Section’s Legislative Committee. He has an AV rating from Martindale Hubbell.

You can often find Tom and his wife Jane on their Friday date-night at Bizou on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall. His daughter Grace works as an R.N. at the University of Virginia Hospital. His son John is a third year at Mr. Jefferson’s University.

Now that the Red Sox have proved miracles still happen, by winning their third World Series of his lifetime (2004, 2007, and 2013), Tom is holding out hope that he will live long enough to see Hollywood make a Superman movie worth watching. If you are a Facebooker, you can find Tom’s page here.
