This comprehensive, stand-alone publication is direct from an April 2018 seminar.

No matter the level of wealth, every adult citizen in Virginia needs a will to control the disposition of property at death, and to select the person designated to execute his or her wishes. Some surveys show that over 70% of adults have no will or other estate planning documents. Intestacy is not the solution!

This seminar covered important issues in drafting wills and testamentary documents, including:

  • How to draft wills, from start to finish
  • How to assess testamentary capacity
  • How to properly conduct the execution of wills
  • How to protect a will from challenge and litigation
  • Methods to salvage do-it-yourself wills and other seemingly deficient writings
